Your Catholic Family: Simple Ways to Share the Faith at Home
by Jim Merhaut

"Your children receive their faith from you in much the same way that they receive their language, their loyalties, their preferences, their talents and their habits from you. Your faith will almost inevitably be their faith at whatever level you express it, so if you want them to have a deep, solid and lasting faith, then you will have to put some effort into the way you express your faith to them. The first goal of this book is to help you explore your own faith. The second goal is to give you simple and effective ways to share your faith with your children."—from the Introduction

Parents and grandparents will find many activities to explore and share faith at home, all based on the four themes of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: Scriptural Foundations, Celebration of the Christian Mystery, Life in Christ and Prayer.

Scriptural Q & A
Word games
Board games
Games for young children
Activities for teenagers
Creative art/learning projects
Topics for discussion
Countless ways to pray and faith-share and so much more!

The Imitation of Christ for Children: A Guide to Following Jesus
by Elizabeth Ficocelli

Read a letter from the author to our CatholicMom.com readers

Best selling writer Elizabeth Ficocelli, with her special gift of making religion fun and understandable to children, now brings this ageless classic The Imitation of Christ, by Thomas à Kempis, to a whole new audience—children. Writing in a kid-friendly and kid-relevant style, the author instills in children the same principal messages of the adult version. It teaches young people how and why to make Jesus our leader, provides practical ways to help the child become a better follower, and deepens the child's appreciation for the most intimate way we come in union with Jesus—the Holy Eucharist. This is the first book to capture the primary teachings of this timeless spiritual classic and present them in a manner that children can understand, appreciate, and apply.
