Suzie Botross - Author of ‘She Will Run’
"As the daughter in law of Lynne, I feel that I am qualified to give a behind the scenes comment on All-In Night and Lynne’s amazing parenting skills. I joined the Burgess family officially in 2006, but I knew all the Burgess kids prior to that- I was good friends with Daniel and I had Steph, Clare and Case at youth. One thing that always struck me about the Burgess family was that they were all amazing people in their own way, they all seemed to have a maturity and kindness that was well beyond their years, I now understand why this was- Lynne and Chris faithfully invested in their kids for years before I ever met them.
Josh and I will be doing All-In Night as soon as our kids are old enough to understand! We see the fruit of Lynne and Chris’ efforts and we want that for our kids. I believe there is nothing more important than investing time, prayer and effort into your kids to teach them Godly values and life skills, by doing so, you are equipping them to have an incredible and abundant life and who doesn’t want that for their kids?
Buy this book, read it and implement All-In Night in your family life, you will not be sorry you did."
Tree Burgess - Mother of two young girls
"Lynne and Chris Burgess have done two great things. They have raised a large family rather well, and they have found a simple family ritual which helps parents to proactively teach and learn with their children about the things that matter. In an age when most families let the consumer culture roll over them, Lynne and Chris took a stand and figured out how to give their kids confidence, dreams, and a place to be themselves."
Steve Biddulph - author of Raising Boys and Manhood
"All In Night is such a wonderful resource for parents! At a time when so many parents are busy and time poor, we cannot forget that one of our greatest privelleges is raising strong and happy children with a clear sense of purpose and social conscience. All In Night is a true example of how setting aside purposeful family time can create a bond and sense of unity within families. I loved reading this book. It is easy to follow and gives clear examples for any parent to follow. What a wonderful gift Lynne has provided for families!"

Sonia Cann-Milland - Chaplain, Baxter Primary School
"I bought Lynne's book after hearing her speak about her All-In-Nights, and I just love the way, she and Chris have built a solid foundation for their kids, and that even as adults, they still keep coming home for All-In-Night. I really want that. I want that ongoing connection, and being a part of my kid's lives. I don't want my kids to leave home, and not keep in touch. Most of all, I have been inspired by Lynne and Chris, to teach my kids and give them a good grounding so they can deal with the challenges that life throws at them. Things like attitudes, honesty and having confidence in their own worth and abilities. Thank you Lynne for the great advice, encouragement and practical examples."
