How to Overcome the Chaos of Family Life

Does your family life feel chaotic, most of the time? You’re not alone!  What if there was a simple framework for family life that curbed the chaos and got everyone focused on doing something good and helpful for each other?

In this episode, Jordan interviews Jay Ezell, father of 7, about managing the chaos of family life. His own experience of “parenting by accident” and “just blocking and tackling as things come up” helps us to see how implementing a very simple 3 step process can change all that.  Jay shares that when families get into a regular practice of growing together, by simply focusing on one character strength for 30-60 days, communicating that goal to everyone in the family by huddling up each week and then setting a simple goal to practically work at each day brings PEACE and JOY back to the family.
