Former United States Vice President Mike Pence has advised the American people to strengthen their family bond by getting back round the dinner table and making their families a priority. According to him, this is vital for the future of the country.
This is the key message in his new book, Go Home for Dinner: Advice on How Faith Makes a Family and Family Makes a Life, which he co-authored with his daughter, Charlotte Pence Bond.
“The wellspring of our nation’s strength has always been the faith of the American people and American families. And when our faith is strong, when our families are strong, America is strong,” Pence said while talking to The Christian Post about the book.
Pence, who was formerly governor of Indiana and served as US Vice President in the Trump administration, shared how strong family bonds remained a priority for him throughout his political career, and he made a commitment to be home every night with his wife, Karen, and their three children.
Pence believes that if people really want to fix the country’s problems, they can start by making sure their own house is in order.
“When I think about the concern that tens of millions of Americans have for the future of this country, I want to encourage people: focus on your own, make your family a priority,” he said.
“I hold the view that faith makes a family, and family makes a life. And in these busy days, I hope they go home for dinner.
“The encouragement and the stories in this book hopefully make people smile, but also may also make them think about their own corner of the world and being there for their spouse and for their children in new and renewed ways.”
“We will strengthen America by strengthening families and faith,” He added.
