Dads, be aware – the Spiritual State of a family can be determined by their Christmas card letter. Simply determine what portion of the letter is of a spiritual nature (“We hope you take some time to reflect on . . . . “.) compared to the rest of the letter.

I recommend doing a total word count and a spiritual word count (including Bible Verses) and taking a percentage.

Bonus points for a smooth transition between “New about our Year” and the theological truths.

The Jamison Family, with a 6% Spiritual Content and a fairly awkward segue, has some room for growth in this area.
