What is a Family Blessing?

The Bible is full of examples of God blessing people, fathers blessing children, and kings and apostles blessing the congregations they served. Sadly, blessing is a practice we have lost in our culture, and our kids are feeling this loss acutely. They may not realize it, but they suffer from lack of acceptance, identity, and purpose.
