All-In 2 Night

Now more than ever, I think spending time with family members has gotten lost in the shuffle of our busy lifestyles. More parents are working outside of the home, dinners are often a grab and go when there is time to stop and kids are immersed in technology in virtually every aspect of their lives. Much of the time spent together doing things as a family is now becoming a thing of the past, but as we know, there is a danger in losing our connection with one another, especially family members. That is where author Lynne Burgess got the idea to incorporate what she calls family nights back into her home and she has shared her secrets in her latest book called All-In2Night.

In this book, Lynne shares how they instilled God's values into their children every week through All-in Night. It's not a very long or complicated book. When her kids were little and busy, she wanted books that were easy to read and got to the point. Some of the topics in this book include resilience, wisdom, purpose, a healthy self-esteem, pride, managing yourself, self discipline, plus so much more. Through every one of her All-In Nights, they wove God's beautiful acceptance of everyone, and they made sure that their kids knew He loved them unconditionally.

There are 40 topics in this book that Lynne shares with you not only her family's issues in that particular area such as fear. The section includes what the purpose of this week discussion will be about, in this case, to discuss scenarios where your child might feel afraid and teach them strategies to cope.

Then there are activities you work on together beginning with a verse from the Bible that you reward your kids for memorizing. In this case, Joshua 1:9 "I have commanded you to be strong and brave. Don't ever be afraid or discouraged! I am the Lord your God, and I will be there to help wherever you go. (CEV). There are some great conversation opening questions to discuss fear and situations that one might be afraid of. Next comes a fun family activity that solidifies the point to your family. In this case it's a new twist on Hide and Seek and Marco Polo in the dark.

The book is definitely among one I would highly recommend to new parents or even soon to be parents to gain a foothold on making learning valuable Godly lessons and behaviors not only fun, but ones that hopefully they will carry into their own family as they grow. I received All-In 2Night by Lynne Burgess compliments of Even Before Publishing and Book Crash for my honest review and received no monetary compensation for a favorable one. Hands down, this is such an excellent resource, I wish I would have had this when my children were much younger to create lasting memories and lessons that will enable them to be confident young adults as they grow. In my opinion, I'd rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars.

  1. Thank you for this lovely review!
    I just wanted you to know that our adult kids (all in their 20's now) still come home every Monday night to share dinner together. They bring their families too. This was a by-product of doing All-in Night for all those years. Im loving sharing about All-in Night now, by speaking at Playgroups, Womans groups and in schools :)
    Thank you Heart2Heart for your beautiful ministry!
    Kind Regards
    Lynne Burgess
