Family life is a spiritual path Is your family calendar so jammed that there's never enough time to "be spiritual"? Maybe you need to think about spirituality in a new way. Author, editor, and speaker Tom McGrath shows how the hectic and ordinary moments of family life offer endless opportunities to live more deeply. This book is full of stories and ideas for parents who care about their children's souls. McGrath suggests how we can foster a healthy spirituality in our children--while tending to our own spirits as well. He presents many useful lessons and practical strategies for passing on religious heritage, including: - Introducing children to sacred time - Examining the image of God we actively (or passively) present to our children - Fostering empathy to build our children's moral character - Learning to pray creatively as a family - Developing spiritual disciplines as parents - Cultivating a spirit of forgiveness in the home "If you ever wanted to be a great and inspiring parent, this book gives you the tools to learn how." --Mark Victor Hansen, co-creator, #1 "New York Times "best-selling series "Chicken Soup for the Soul"
