Life makes many demands on today’s families, and lives are often full and hectic. Finding the time for prayer can seem difficult - especially if you aren’t sure where to begin or how to pray as a family.
Take the time to create a plan for your own personal prayer life and for the prayer life of your family. The plan should be written down and agreed upon and discussed by everyone in the family. It doesn’t have to be rigidly followed, but can serve as a grounding reminder -- a thriving, regular, consistent time of worship of and communion with God in prayer.
Find a Disciple.
Pope Francis recently reminded us of the truth in the African Proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child." Parenting and raising a faith-filled family can be hard. The good news is that you do not have to do it alone! Even Mary, after her encounter with the angel, traveled to be with another family who could support and pray with and for her as she and Joseph began their lives together (Luke 1:39-40).
We'll pair you with a 1 to 1 Family Disciple who can walk with you and encourage you as you seek to raise your family in the faith. Your Burning Hearts Family Disciple desires to build a Christ-centered relationship with your family while sharing the Catholic Faith.
