Book Review~All-In 2 Night

As my oldest two children begin their adult lives, I look back and wish I had more time with them as young, impressionable children.  There are so many amazing resources out there for parents.  I've just reviewed one of those resources, All-In 2 Night by Lynne Burgess.  This book follows All-In Night, which introduced the concept of the All In Night. 

All-In 2 Night is full of lots of information to help you connect with your children and as a family.  The book explains how an All-In Night works: You pick a night of the week everyone will be home, and keep it age appropriate and short (10-20 minutes).  All-In 2 Night then gives you 40 weeks (enough for a school year) of topics and ideas to use for your All-In Nights. Along with a different topic for each week, there is a Purpose for the week/topic, a bible verse, ideas and activities, Life Lesson, and a peek into the next week.

The topics cover many different issues: Courage, Prayer, Drugs, and Healthy Work Ethic to name just a few.  You might be thinking these topics wouldn't work for your younger children.  That's what is great about how All-In Nights work-you can modify to fit the different ages in your household. 

I think All-In 2 Night is a wonderful tool for Christian parents-I wish I had it many years ago when my youngest were little.  The book is full of wisdom for connecting to your kids while imparting important life lessons, and I look forward to making All-In Night a regular part of our lives.  So far everyone has enjoyed the All-In Nights we have had.  Compared to other family devotional-type activities we have done in the past, the older kids appreciated the short time commitment.  So even if everyone is really busy, you can carve out ten minutes together once a week. And if you have more time, make a fun evening of it!  The author even gives dessert suggestions for your night together. 

Just a warning, Lynne Burgess is from Australia, so some words may be a little different from what you are used to-like 'Mum'.  I highly recommend this book, and if you start your own All-In Night, I'd love to hear how it goes!
