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 mom baking?
  • Have other people ever made you feel badly?
  • Did you want to “show them”? Is that a good way to feel or behave?
  • What do you like to bake?
