Item Description...
Overview
Jim provides parents with the wisdom and guidance they need to share the Catholic faith with their children - and leads families through a journey of discovery, uncovering the riches of the Catholic tradition and helping families apply their learning to life today.

Publishers Description
"Your children receive their faith from you in much the same way that they receive their language, their loyalties, their preferences, their talents and their habits from you. Your faith will almost inevitably be their faith at whatever level you express it, so if you want them to have a deep, solid and lasting faith, then you will have to put some effort into the way you express your faith to them. The first goal of this book is to help you explore your own faith. The second goal is to give you simple and effective ways to share your faith with your children."--from the Introduction
"Jim Merhaut has accepted the challenge to prepare a new generation of parents (and grandparents) with this wonderful new resource. This encyclopedic work is a treasure chest of solid content and engaging activities. Jim provides parents with the wisdom and guidance they need to share the Catholic faith with their children... and] leads families through a journey of discovery, uncovering the riches of the Catholic tradition and helping families apply their learning to life today."--from the Foreword by John Roberto, Center for Ministry Development
"Jim Merhaut's book is a creative breakthrough toward solving the catechetical challenges that face the Church in the United States today...a breath of fresh air in catechesis."--Father Ken Miller, former executive director of pastoral and educational services for the Diocese of Youngstown and pastor of St. Louis Church in Louisville, Ohio

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Glad to have this in my home  Sep 16, 2006
Jim Merhaut's "Your Catholic Family" has been described as "encyclopedic" and I would concur with that description. The book is truly a wonderful resource for Catholic families looking to live out the faith in their homes. Divided into four sections which parallel the themes of the Catechism, Merhaut's book provides point by point learning objectives and activities. The book's activities are wide ranging in nature and will appeal to a broad cross-section of ages. At the conclusion of the book, a brief appendix for DREs is included. I look forward to implementing this book in my own home.
 
Comprehensive and Practical  Sep 8, 2006
Author Jim Merhaut has five children, holds a master's degree in religious education, and directs a parish religious ed program, all experiences that shine through in this comprehensive, practical resource. In the introduction and throughout the text Merhaut offers ideas for engaging children and promoting a general Catholic atmosphere within the home.

The content is divided into four main parts dealing with scripture and tradition, liturgy and sacraments, Christian morality, and prayer. The parts are broken into subsections, each with a general introduction and several topics that include learning objectives and activities. A list of activities organized by category (younger and older children, parents, and family) is provided, as is an appendix for catechetical leaders and a bibliography.
 
Great buy  Aug 18, 2006
I love this book, and it's a must-have for any Catholic family. It's also a wonderful resource for religious educators, as well as lay people. The book provides great insight into how to incoporate the faith into your daily life.
