Gracieland Table Talk:

We would like to encourage you to share a family meal and Gracieland together. Each week we will be posting some discussion starters that you can share with your family. Share the webstrip with your kids, grab a plate, pull up a chair, and talk.

Ask your child:

    • What is the problem with dad’s report cards?
    • Why does dad decide to look to the future?
    • Do your parents talk about their past with you? What parts do you find interesting?
    • What are some of your favorite things that happened in the past?
    • What are you looking forward to in the future?
