What is The Strong Family Project?

The Strong Family Project Challenge {#strongfamilyproject} is here to help you make memories together, grow in faith and strengthen the bond of your family unit.

So often the busyness of life threatens to overshadow our family time and we are left as strangers passing in the night.  The Strong Family Project encourages families to schedule intentional time and actions over the next 65 days to create a stronger family bond.

We believe that families of any size and season of life can make intentional choices to unite their family, even if they’ve drifted far apart.

In fact, we’re so passionate about family that we’ve created The Strong Family Project printable pack filled with tools to help you make these intentional acts easy and stress free.  In this pack, you’ll receive conversation cards, date night jar cards, a calendar of activities, goal setting sheets, Scripture Writing Challenge and ways to teach kids to pray.  The best part is, it’s FREE!

To have access to your printable pack and other exclusive freebies, simply subscribe to Faith Along the Way using the form below.  Check your e-mail soon after to confirm your subscription and to grab the password to access our exclusive subscriber only page.

Ways to  use the Summer Family Photo Scavenger Hunt

1. Do every item in one grand day of fun, with pictures to prove the fun you’ve had together. The kids will be raving about your Family Fun Day for months after.

2. Consider this a family bucket list, where your goal is to complete it over the summer.  Schedule activities according to your schedule and free time, such as completing one activity over the weekend.

3. Find a Summer Fun Family, another family you’ll do life with over the summer, and have a race around town to see who can be the first to complete every item on the photo scavenger hunt.  Enjoy the here and now by celebrating the friendships of another family.

What’s your favorite fun activity to strengthen your family?


  1. This sounds fun, for sure! I’ve done different variations of photo scavenger hunts before–they always make for great memories!

  2. This is a great idea. Summer starts on Friday for us and I’ve been looking for some activities that aren’t typical. My kids are teens now but will be home a lot. I want to find some volunteer opportunities for all of us this summer so we’re not just indulging ourselves but helping others.

    1. Teens will love a photo scavenger hunt and would especially love to compete with others to see who can finish the fastest. Have fun with it!

  3. My favorite fun activity is eating ice cream together and sit down to watch a family movie.

  4. I’ve never done a photo scavenger hunt but it looks like fun!

    1. I haven’t either, Angela, and can’t wait to try it with my kids!

  5. My favorite family fun activity is going to the park together. The girls love getting to play on the equipment with other kids.

  6. What a fabulous idea!! One of our favorite fun things to do as a family is to visit our local trails and parks. We get to enjoy nature and my daughter gets to discover new plants and bugs! Sometimes we even see some animals! We love being outdoors and exploring what the world has to offer!!

    1. Being outside is so great and it’s amazing how well the kids sleep after a day of exploring. 🙂

  7. This is such a fun idea! As a mom of a toddler this challenge is so helpful to think of fun ways to keep busy this summer. He loves taking pictures and I know this will be a fun thing to do this week!

    1. My little guy loves selfies, so I know he’ll love it too. Enjoy the fun!

    1. It is! I love that it’s for all ages so I can do it with my little kids, too!

  8. What a fun idea! I’m totally going to do this with my kids!

  9. Sarah, this is such a good challenge. Our favorite activity in the summer definitely has to be anything we can do in the pool 🙂 . Did your family do this challenge this week? I’ll be waiting to hear how it goes!

    1. Thanks, Deborah! My daughter is recovering from a stomach bug, so we haven’t done the photo scavenger hunt yet, but I look forward to introducing them to this. They will have so much fun!

      1. Oh no 🙁 . Well, at least there are some fun things lined up for them when she gets to feeling better. Hope it’s soon!

  10. This week one of our fun family activities included going to a workshop at Home Depot to build a truck together. We all took turns hammering the nails and painting the truck. We all learned something new, practiced fine motor skills, encouraged each other and laughed together. The bonus is the activity was free and we got to bring our truck home which my son has been playing with ever since! We also went to a free family fun festival that we had never attended before. While that was fun and we did it together, I think the workshop was a better family experience – filled with bonding and memories that will stay longer than attending a festival that is similar to other festivals.

    1. GREAT ideas! I bet the kids loved going to Home Depot for something for them and getting a freebie. I love the enjoyment that comes from small objects as a child.

  11. Sarah – you have such wonderful ideas for family time and fun! It’s going to be an adventurous and fun summer for you and your family! I love the idea of the scavenger hunt – It’s been years…..
