The Joy of Holidaying as a Family

The Joy of Holidaying as a Family

If there’s one thing that we love, it’s spending quality time with our family. What better way to do this than during the holidays? Whether it's packing up the car for a road trip or jetting off to an exotic destination, there's something special about getting away with the ones we love most. 

Family holidays are also the perfect time to practice our faith. Spending time with loved ones, who are like-minded and share the same values, is the best way to enjoy some peaceful and spiritual rest and relaxation. In this blog, we will cover some of our top tips on how to intertwine your faith with holidaying, and make the most out of your special holiday time with family.


Prioritise Presence Over Presents

Let’s not forget that the greatest gift of all is spending time with our loved ones. Being present (putting the phone down!), stepping away from distractions and worries, and just being in the moment, is the best way to spend quality time with your family.

Regardless of the season or the occasion, there is no gift more special than being with family in God’s world. Don’t focus on physical gifts, but instead on the gift of being in the moment and in-person.


Make Time for God

Amidst all the hustle and bustle of travel, don't forget to make time for God. Whether it's a quiet moment of prayer before the day begins or a family devotional before bedtime, create some time as a family to connect with God. After all, it is He who makes all this possible.


Create Traditions

There’s nothing more special or wholesome than family traditions. They are unique to the family and connect you all together - almost like having your own language. Therefore, why not use your family holiday to start some new traditions? Such as a morning prayer together to start the day, or expressing a positive affirmation together over a meal - find new traditions that resonate with your family and make them your own.


Embrace Imperfection

As much as we love our family, sometimes family holidays aren't picture-perfect. There may be disagreements and a few mishaps along the way. But you know what? That's okay! Embrace the chaos, laugh it off, and cherish the imperfect moments just as much as the perfect ones. 


Soak Up the Joy

Finally, don't forget to soak up the joy of being together as a family. Whether you're building sandcastles on the beach, roasting marshmallows around a campfire, or simply sat watching TV or a movie, relish every moment of togetherness. After all, it's these precious moments that we'll look back on with fondness for years to come. Be thankful that He has given you this, and take a moment to enjoy it all.


Family holidays are a wonderful time to celebrate the gift of family, the joy of togetherness, and the blessings of God's love. So, whether you're travelling near or far, remember these tips to have a fun, happy holiday together! These are the moments that make life truly meaningful.
