Parenting Your Kids with Grace (Birth to Age 10)

release date: Apr 01, 2021
Parenting Your Kids with Grace (Birth to Age 10)
Believe it or not, the Catholic family isn’t primarily a human institution. It’s a divine one. By uniting with the sacramental life of the Church, your common, ordinary, crazy family becomes something sacred, a “domestic church." Family therapist and parent Gregory Popcak and his wife, Lisa, are back with Parenting Your Kids with Grace. Building on their best-selling book Parenting with Grace, first published twenty years ago, this new volume draws on the same parenting principles and provides up-to-date research to guide parents through each stage of child development from birth to age ten. Practical, faithful, and humorous, Parenting Your Kids with Grace addresses four key questions: Are Catholic families called to be different from other families in the way we relate to one another in the home? If so, how? What does an authentic, family-based approach to Catholic spirituality look like in practice? What can the latest research tell us about creating a faithful home and raising faithful kids? How can Catholic families be outposts of evangelization and positive social change? By checking our basic assumptions about parenting against both the Church’s vision and what science can teach about living out that vision in healthy ways, we can discover God’s plan for parenting healthy, godly kids.

The Corporal Works of Mommy (and Daddy Too)

release date: Apr 18, 2016
The Corporal Works of Mommy (and Daddy Too)
How do you turn your home into a place where saints are made? By practicing the “little way” of family life at home, every day. St. Therese of Lisieux’s “little way” shows us that we can achieve holiness by performing even the smallest acts with great love. For the family, every day is made up of many, many small acts – feeding hungry tummies, comforting a feverish child, getting a squirmy toddler dressed for mass – and in each one we have the opportunity to practice mercy and be a living example of how to love and follow God. The Corporal Works of Mommy (And Daddy Too) gives parents practical suggestions, tips, and ideas for ways to practice the corporal works of mercy in the home, and reflection questions for delving deeper into the topics. Each chapter also includes a prayer for God’s guidance in our pursuit of the “little way” of the family. Let God set your family ablaze with his love when you practice The Corporal Works of Mommy (And Daddy Too).
