A spirit of service to others is an integral part of our Catholic lives. As a busy mother of a large family, I often struggle with the call to do MORE for others, when I’m barely keeping my head above water at home.
The solution? Involve my family, and create a Catholic culture of service at home.
Sarah Reinhard’s new book, Catholic Family Fun is chock full of ideas to help mesh your faith with your family life, all while making it FUN! She divides her ideas into areas such as prayer, ways to serve, outdoor adventures, meals, and just silly things to do together. Each section is marked with the Faith Angle — ideas for getting you and your children to think about how their faith can be present in all aspects of their lives, as well as Make it Your Own – ways to personalize the ideas for your family.
As a pregnant momma, seeing a pregnancy center mentioned in the Ways to Serve section warmed my heart. This is a low cost way to serve those in need, stress the sacredness of life to your children, and help them identify ways they can help, from prayer, diaper drives and more.
For my non Catholic readers — this book has resources for EVERY family seeking to deepen family bonds, create lasting memories, and enrich your lives – body, soul and spirit.

Want more of Sarah’s writing? I have her booklets Welcome Risen Jesus – a preparation for Lent and Easter with children, as well as Welcome Baby Jesus, to help families prepare for Advent and Christmas. I’m anxiously awaiting her book A Catholic Mother’s Guide to Pregnancy, scheduled for release this fall.

It’s wonderful — and guess what? I have pictures on my site from last summer from when my kids played in the fire hydrant — so your post about CFF gave me a big, big chuckle.
