Faith Family Formation ~ An anonymous wise person said, “It is through repetition that possibility becomes ability.” Making space for God in your family’s busy schedule can be hard. But creating regular family faith habits and practices will have a life-changing impact on your kids – and on you! The new resource Everyday Family Faith (available at FaithAliveResources.org), a pocket-sized family formation guide, can help you get started.
