Mitzi Perdue is the author of several books on the family including How to Keep Your Family Connected and How to Make Your Family Business Last. Going back several generations, both her family and the Perdue family have maintained family businesses for over 125 years. To this day, both families serve as role models for how to keep your family together. The adage of “the family that prays together, stays together” is well founded. Popular TV programs such as Blue Bloods that have weekly dinners in which praying at the dinner table each week with all family members present reflects this adage and demonstrates Mitzi’s commitment to family.
Mitzi prepared the following talk for the 30th Educational Policy Conference in January 2019.
