The importance of family

6 October 2013 Wesley Impact! TV

This week on Wesley Impact! TV we meet author and speaker, Lynne Burgess and the Rev Dr Keith Garner looks at Genesis.

Lynne's story 
Australian author, speaker and mother of five, Lynne Burgess, has found a secret ingredient to help keep household relationships strong. Lynne wanted to take a proactive role in helping her children discover their own identity by keeping the family at home and connected one night a week. All-in nights were standard in her home (every Monday night) for more than 16 years and included simple yet productive activities that involved the whole family.  Lynne is now spreading her passion by taking on a speaking role to help pass on the ‘All-in night’ concept to the next generation.
