At Home with Our Faith, Claretian Publications’ award-winning newsletter for parents, is seeking your stories and examples of how you are handing on a living faith to your children. Feel free to answer any or all of the questions below. Please identify yourself by first name and tell us how many children you have.
If your answer is used in At Home with Our Faith, you’ll be identified only by first name and number of children. Thanks for sharing what has worked for you in passing on the faith!
1. What is the area of your faith life that you feel you are best equipped to teach or pass on to your child? (Examples: praying, concern for the poor, regular church attendance, belief in the sacraments, forgiveness, helping neighbors, living a moral life–anything in your life that you connect with your faith.)
2. Give an example of a moment that you felt that you taught something important to your child about an aspect of faith (and this includes moral life, how God is present in both good and bad situations, trust in God).
3. Give an example of a parent you know who has taught something important about an aspect of faith to his or her child.
