It's the Thought that Counts

Gracieland Table Talk: We would like to encourage you to share a family meal and Gracieland together. Each week we will be posting some discussion starters that you can share with your family. Share the webstrip with your kids, grab a plate, pull up a chair, and talk.

Ask your child:

Why is Gracie freaking out?
Do you think Gracie’s mom is right?
Why does Gracie want to go to the dollar store?
Where do you like to shop for birthday gifts for your friends?
