Hey Guys! Chris and Melissa here. With the holiday season in full swing, we thought it would be a great idea to let you know about an opportunity that you don’t want to miss. This time of year is famous for all sorts of traditions, from perfecting your pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving to snuggling up with the family and watching your favorite Christmas movie, we are surrounded by new and old traditions alike. Sometimes, we have a tradition that’s so old we don’t even know why we do it.  

Have you thought about your traditions lately? Do you know the purpose they serve?

It’s no secret that here at family brand our biggest value is creating a culture of belonging and identity within your family to raise your kids with purpose. We believe that tradition is one of the best ways to create that culture today. If you want to strengthen your family, connect with them on a new level, and instill a certainty and confidence in your kids that will never go away even years down the road. This episode is for you! 

Listen in as we talk about the power of tradition and how it is all around us, even if it’s not the holidays. Something as simple as a weekly meal has the power to create lasting connections and understanding between your family. We talk about how we began reviewing our own traditions, our favorite traditions now,  and how learning to let go of the ones that didn’t serve us only opened the door for new ones that did. 

You’ll get practical questions to differentiate the traditions that strengthen your family and the ones that would be better left alone. Remember you can’t get these answers wrong! It all comes down to what serves your family best, so don’t be afraid to bring the whole family in on the conversation. You may be surprised at what your kids actually like. 

We hope this episode encourages you to take a look at your own traditions and to start creating ones that will bring love, joy, and confidence to your family every holiday season. To see the resources we mentioned in the episode, check out the links below!
