Summer. Life moves slower, time is more plentiful, and the days never seem to end. Summer is the perfect time to be intentional in building faith and in building relationships while having some fun, too.

Nothing says summer like a campfire. There are so many great ways to have a backyard fire these days. We had an above ground fire pit type thing at our old house. I would love to have one again, but since we are not going to be at this house for too much longer, we just haven’t invested the time and money into having one here. In a couple weeks, however, we will be doing some camping and we will do this activity then.
Gather your family around a campfire and make some s’mores. Once everyone is done being sticky, read Proverbs 16:24, which says, “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”
Discuss how our words matter. We are called to love others, and what better way to do this than with our words. Just like ooey-gooey s’mores are sweet, the Bible calls gracious words sweet like a honeycomb.
Every time you hear words that are not gracious this week, remind your kids of the s’mores – asking them if their words are like a honeycomb. Focus on using sweet words this week – even you!
