Family the Forming Center

A Vision of the Role of Family in Spiritual Formation  

by Marjorie J. Thompson
Paperback
Children Legacy

The first place most of us experience God and learn the values that shape our lives is within the family. Is it any wonder, then, that all manner of current social ills are blamed on the disintegration of family life?

Children need to see that the spiritual life is significant to their parents at home as well as at church. If your home life differs from the image you present at church, your kids will see faith as contrived and irrelevant.

In this revised and expanded edition, Thompson suggests models, rituals, and celebrations that will inspire your children to grow spiritually and will help center your family on God. Family the Forming Center will help you, as parents, develop close family relationships filled with God's love, trust, and values.
