Raising faithful Catholic children in today's generation is a challenging task for even the best parents.

Due to the importance of this subject, Dr. Gregory Popcak and his wife Lisa have written a book entitled Discovering God Together. The book begins with an invitation, to not only pass on the Faith to your children, but to also deepen your faith in the process. It then proceeds to list the "Five Mar ...more

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. Teaching faith to children in this day and age is no easy matter. It is a huge and sacred responsibility. 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.

I bought this book because my children are at or approaching the age of reason and will receive the Sacraments of Confession and First Holy Communion soon. As such I am looking for information on how to guide them in forming their own personal faith and prayer life instead of just relying on family prayer. 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
