It’s difficult to let go and hand over our worries and concerns to God.  There is no better time than now to pray the Litany of Trust during Lent.

Lent is an excellent opportunity to help kids develop a habit of prayer; an ongoing conversation and friendship with God that is essential to living the Christian life. St. Therese of Lisieux is a great example of how she lived a simple life of prayer. Her ‘little way’ is a lifestyle that we, as well as kids, can certainly learn from. All quotes below are from this beautiful, humble and joy-filled Saint.

On your wedding day, when you said your vows at the altar, there was absolutely no way of knowing what God would have in store for you and your spouse. You gave your yes recognizing that there would be both joys and hardships, but that you would weather everything with someone by your side. 

Now the years have passed, and maybe it’s become harder to find the joy in marriage amidst the chaos of raising a family. Perhaps it’s been more difficult for you and your spouse to spend time together and feel connected in your relationship.

As parents, we have the difficult yet beautiful task of raising children for the kingdom of God. Every day is filled with its own set of joys and challenges, accompanied of course by the hundreds of questions that each child seems to ask.

I think for most of us, the thought of having to talk to our kids about tough moral issues like abortion and euthanasia sends momentary panic through our system. It’s hard to imagine what we would say to our six year old about topics that they shouldn't even be thinking about, and yet the culture we live in makes it almost unavoidable. We want our children to be raised in the truth of what the Church teaches, and that is why we as parents need to be prepared to have these important discussions with our kids.

Here are a few things to remember when discussing tough moral issues with young children:

Catholic VBS

 

When you ask people what they think of VBS, some might say it's something for kids to do during the summer months or it's child care at the church for a week. As VBS leaders, we know that although there may be some truth behind that, it doesn’t change the fact that summer VBS makes a huge impact on a child’s faith life, especially if a child isn’t being raised with faith in the home. 

VBS is making a difference in the lives of kids all over the world, and it's something that every child should have the chance to be a part of. 

Here are five reasons why kids need Catholic VBS in their life.
