Family Observation Game (FOG)
Today's Task: Play the family observation game (FOG)
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Phil. 4:8-9
This is a fun one! I believe that observing family members and becoming experts on them is the most effective way to strengthen families. I knew last night at dinner, that my 20 year-old wanted both offers of dessert just by the way he glanced back and forth when I asked which he would like. Try this game, all you need is two pens and two pads of paper...or the scap pieces that clutter all our homes.
Pick a family member. Then another member asks a questions. For example: "If you went to eat dinner at McDonalds you would order...?" One family member has to write down what the other will answer. The person picked writes down his/her own answer. It's like the Newlywed game (for those of us old enough to remember) for families. See how well you know each other. Have fun!
