Spiritual Life

The Family that Prays Together Stays Together.

We hear this phrase all the time, but what does praying as a family actually look like?  How can we turn our hearts to God when our kids are turning to screens, fighting with each other, or using their rosaries as weapons? (and not just spiritual ones!)


If this sounds like your family, then be assured that this situation is perfectly normal!  But that doesn’t mean that you can’t make the spiritual life of your home an intentional, vibrant part of your family culture.  As a matter of fact, parents must do this to fulfill the mission that God has given them.  The church is very clear – parents are the first “heralds of the gospel” for their children.  And that role is absolutely essential.

The Spiritual Life of the Family

On this page you’ll find resources that help you realize…

      • For our kids to be followers of Christ, we need to be.  They need to see how our faith affects our life.
      • When your child is secure in your love for them, they are going to be more secure in God’s love for them.
      • No youth minister, priest, or teacher can take your place.  Parents are responsible for passing on the faith to their children with the support of others. 
      • After we build a platform of love in our child’s heart, then we can open up to them the treasures of our faith.

Our mission is to empower parents to embrace their sacred calling, and it IS a sacred calling.  This is a calling given to you not by your profession or by the state, but by God himself!  We want to help you step into this role as the first evangelist of your child – and for you to know the love of Christ ever more deeply in your own life.
