The Dinner Table
We are on a mission to reunite families at the Dinner Table.
Join us at The Dinner Table to help families reconnect and communicate more effectively.
We want to help families be closer, sharing and loving. The Dining Table is not only an area for eating but a place for gathering, sharing, communicating and where relationships grow.
Here we will share ideas that will help make gathering around the table enjoyable and meaningful for all members of your family and we invite you to share your ideas and what has worked – and not worked for you.
As the weather improves you may be looking for a delicious, quick and easy meal to cook on the BBQ. What a great way to have the family enjoy a meal together! Have everyone help in the preparation.
Gathering at the Dinner Table provides an opportunity to connect with your family. Sometimes it may be difficult to start a conversation, but asking questions can help your family members to connect on a deeper level. Here are a wide range of interesting topics that they will enjoy and even learn from, without any lecturing. We have hundreds of questions for you to use that will get everyone involved.
Sitting together as a family for dinner is one of the most important things you can do daily. Here are some of the best mealtime prayers for families that will bring you closer together and create an environment where love and sharing happens. We have many differnt prayers for you to choose from.
In this new podcast series, we are on a mission to reunite families at the Dinner Table. We want to help families be closer, sharing and more loving. The dinner table is not only an area for eating but a place for gathering, sharing, communicating and where relationships can grow. Studies show there are enormous mental and physical health benefits for the whole family with reduced rates of anxiety and depression. There are so many benefits, and, in this series, we’ll give you ideas on how to get your family to the dinner table and how to make it a valuable experience for everyone.
We are joined again by Derek Boylen who featured in our Focus Sessions series. Derek is a father of nine, and director of the Centre for Life, Marriage and Family in the Archdiocese of Perth. He’s also a lecturer in the Discipline of Counselling at the University of Notre Dame in Perth specialising in grief and loss, professional and personal growth, and couple and family therapy.
