Family Time Activities During Quarantine

Many of us in the United States and around the world have been given a unique opportunity to spend a great deal of time with our immediate families in the midst of this Coronavirus quarantine. Some may find this a burden, especially if forced family time is not something your family is accustomed to. In reality, this truly needs to be seen as a special blessing from God to be able to bring families closer together during this time of darkness and uncertainty. There was a post going around social media when the virus began spreading in the United States that pointed out that Satan is the one who is spreading the fear, anxiety, uncertainty and  panic, not God. God wants us to take advantage of this opportunity, as unfortunate as it is, to bring back the importance of the family unit. God may be using this “forced family time” as a way to bring back the family dinner and teach us to truly rely on Him for everything.

That’s easy enough, right?
