What's For Dinner?

Summer brings a welcome break for some families, but for others, the lack of routine can be chaotic. As a mom of seven (ages 22 - 3), I know both sides of that coin! With everyone home, the days can be a whirlwind, especially during work hours. My husband and I own an online store and work from home, so summer is a time of fun and but it’s also somewhat chaotic. The kids are constantly asking questions about playdates with friends, pool time, and of course, the ever-present "what's for dinner?"

Make Time for Family Meals

Experts say dinnertime is important for healthy, holy families. It's a chance to connect, unplug from technology, and have real conversations with real people. In our Catholic household, keeping God at the center of our lives is a priority. But with the constant distractions of the world, it can be a challenge. We are not perfect at the family dinner routine by any means, we do our best. As a mom, I want this to happen daily, but it really happens 2-3 times a week.

Make a schedule for meal-times. Keep it simple and work with your family, but scheduling family meal-times will help ensure this happens for your house-hold. Even if you only get one meal a week, that's a great start!

That's why I was so excited to discover's collection of scripture-based dinnerware. These beautiful plates and mugs aren't just functional, they provide a wonderful prompt for conversation around the table.

Scripture Dinnerware for Bringing the Word of the Lord to Your Tables and Gatherings

How to Use this Dinnerware Set

  1. 1
    Picture this: your family gathers for a summer meal. The sun might be setting, casting a warm glow on the table. Each person has a plate or mug with a Bible verse inscribed on it. We take a moment to read the verse, then ask ourselves and each other, "What is God telling us through this verse today?"
  2. 2
    We can discuss the meaning, look up the verse for context, or even memorize it together and quiz each other. Making a fun game of memorizing God’s Word as a family is a simple yet powerful way to weave faith into our daily lives, even amidst the summer craziness.
  3. 3
    These dinnerware sets would also make a fantastic wedding gift! Starting married life with a focus on God at every meal is a beautiful Christian family tradition. I’m saving this idea for my adult children.

Here's what I love most about these faith-based dishes:

  • Conversation Starters: The verses spark meaningful discussions around the table.
  • Family Bonding: Sharing a meal and reflecting on scripture strengthens family connections.
  • Beautiful Design: The plates are elegant for special occasions, yet sturdy enough for everyday use.
  • A Gift of Faith: These sets would be cherished by newlyweds or any family looking to deepen their faith.
  • Summer is a time for fun, relaxation, and creating lasting memories. By incorporating these scripture-based dinnerware sets, we can ensure those memories are filled with faith and togetherness.
