Say Yes to Laughter!

No, you can’t have more candy. No, you can’t play until you finish your homework. And, NO, you can’t stay out past midnight. Hi, I’m Renee Swope with Proverbs 31 Ministries.

If you’re a mom, it’s easy to feel like the rule-keeper who spends her day saying “no” to her kids. But, despite what the kids think, saying “no” is not a mom’s favorite thing to do!

Of course there will always be rules to follow and enforce, but let’s look for ways to say “yes” sometimes - especially when it comes to laughing and having fun with our families.

Here are a few ideas to help us say “yes” to fun and laughter in our homes:
Serve ice-cream sundaes – and only ice cream sundaes – for dinner.
Watch old family movies and giggle at how much everyone has changed.
Turn on some music and dance!
Have a family game night and play charades.

Proverbs 31 Ministries is here to help you as mom. For more ideas on having fun with your family, visit
