Catholic Truths for Our Children
Parents are asked to consider their primary obligation to their children--to raise them to love and serve God and spend eternity with Him. Scripture, reason, and personal experience are used to encourage parents to put God and the Catholic faith at the center of their lives. The first step in raising good Catholics is instilling a rock-solid faith and love for God. There are plenty of people who learned the facts of their religion but one day lost all faith, not only in religion but in God. God is so obvious and so wonderful in our lives, that we can introduce our children to Him daily. They can feel, see and experience Him in the world around them as well as read about Him in the Bible. Part of believing in God however, is still believing in Him when the going gets tough. Lots of scripture, personal experiences and thoughts used throughout.

Dear God, I Don't Get It!
This is the perfect story for 3rd through 6th grade Catholic kids and classrooms with excellent writing, vocabulary and thinking activities incorporated at the end of the book. It combines a great story with age-appropriate apologetics and is endorsed by best-selling authors Emily and Jeff Cavins as well as Bishop Zipfel.
Mary Kochan, Senior Editor of Catholic Exchange and homeschooler, endorses "Dear God, I don't get it!" and explains, "Sixth-grader, Aaron Ajax is happily comfortable, with not much more than the annoyances of a little brother to disturb him and he takes his friendship with God for granted. When a sudden change in family circumstances uproots him from the home and friends he has known his whole life, Aaron wonders what has happened to his relationship with God. Through this true-to-life story we follow the journey of a young boy coming to grips with a lesson we all need - that real friendship with God means God is in charge."

The word "family" brings to mind thoughts of joy, sacrifice, affection, hardship, and humor. Yet it is love that defines what it means to be a family, and it is this same love that gives a family their purpose. In bearing witness to the mystery of the love of Christ, the family becomes the "domestic sanctuary of the Church."
