I truly loved this book. It was filled with simple, practical, doable, nuggets of inspiration. Little things you can start doing today to grow your own faith as well as share that faith with your children. I found myself getting excited on nearly every page. Encouraged.

And this book made it seem not only possible but a privilege and exciting journey to do together as parents and as a family ...more
Filled with many wonderful suggestions, and helpful ideas to enrich ones faith through the mission of the family. True to the teachings of the Catholic Church, this book offers many insightful and intuitive tips for practically implementing faith based acts in one's daily life with children. My favorite part of the book is that all of the insights provided are aimed at helping each individual in the family fall in love with their faith each time they are practiced. Very helpful!
This book has a lot of good content to help create or boost a Catholic family home life (ie. domestic church). Even if you are doing some of the suggested tips it helps to encourage your decisions and give you new ideas to help form your own and your children's spiritual life. The studies mentioned throughout the book supported the suggestions for effective faith formation and were fascinating as well.

This book helped in this regard but was not as much as I had hoped. However it had great information send practical tips for becoming a family who pray and worships together. It was an easy re ...more
