Two of my kids showing off our new favorite book!

The Popcaks begin their book with the question, “How do we share our faith in a way that will make sense to our kids and stick with them for a lifetime?”  The rest of the book is spent breaking down this overwhelming question into easy to follow spiritual steps.  Practical tips for creating faith-based rituals and routines within our homes, ideas for inspiring “discipleship hearts” in our children, and simple strategies for strengthening the prayer lives of our families, both as a whole and as individuals are just a few examples of the Popcaks’ proactive approach to family spirituality.  I especially liked the Popcaks’ clear, step-by-step explanation of how to instruct children of all ages in the development of their personal prayer lives.

The Popcaks’ experience as Catholic counselors is evident in the convincing teaching techniques they present throughout the book, but especially in the chapter entitled “For Families with Particular Struggles: Faith Development in Divorced and Single-Parent Households.”  Yes, it is possible to raise faithful children even in families that are struggling!

The final section of the book highlights several of the sacraments and shows families how to get the most of God’s grace out of each one.

Compelling statistics and research sprinkled throughout the book support the need for a resource like this in every Catholic home.  Let the Popcaks show you how to make disciples of your children, and enjoy a depth of faith and family closeness like you’ve never experienced before!
