Healthy Families Can Cope With Uncertainty 

We are in the midst of raging waves delivering bad news and uncertainty.  Healthy Families know how to roll with raging waves and uncertainty.  Healthy Families know and accept they cannot change the rolling waves; they have been working together to build a set of beliefs, principals and skills that keep their boat from capsizing. Think of a sail boat - there are 8 pieces that make up the design.  What keeps the boat steady is what you don’t see. It is the size of the keel, which provides an underwater balancing force that keeps the boat from tipping over.

You can’t build a boat in a hurricane with winds and rough seas. You must build a boat when the weather is good in preparation for the storms and uncertainty that will surely come with life.  Informed Families’ mission is to help you build a healthy family structure. We provide lots of information and tools, but you have to access the information and start building your very own healthy family structure.  

Our Family Table Time toolkit shares information that is FUN AND EASY to use.  No one said that getting healthy has to be hard.  We encourage you to light up and focus on the moment when you can relax and relate to your kids, spouse and extended family. Please sign up for the Family Table Time free trial and let us know how you like the activities.  Focus on what you can change. Put a smile on your face, it is easier than frowning and does wonders for your health and for the health of those around you.  Get your Family Table Time toolkit and start building a healthy family!  Stay safe.
