This delightful book enthusiastically encourages families to gather round the family table for mealtime, prayer, storytelling, and affirmation. The activities here will help them connect family mealtime with the church’s mealtime at the Eucharistic table. The simple act of gathering for a meal is one of the most important “traits” of a healthy and happy family life.
Thus, this book is specifically designed for use in the home, to help guide parents as they fulfill their role as the primary teachers of the faith for their children.
As parents ourselves we know the importance of family mealtime gatherings, and so we have written Kitchen Table Conservations just for parents. It’s a simple, practical, step-by-step guide to help them share Scripture and converse about their faith. We hope that their own table conversations and activities will lead to greater faith in and appreciation of the Eucharist.
Pointers for Parents is a series of practical, easy-to-use, step-by-step booklets to guide parents as they help their children with sacramental and other faith formation projects. The authors have “been there and done that” with their own children, and thus they understand how “simple” projects can sometimes be daunting for busy parents. Upcoming topics include preparing children for Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter.
