I take my kids to Mass, parish faith-formation activities and Catholic School, what’s missing that I need to teach in the home? How can I create an organized and fun way to teach faith lessons in the home? What are the valuable and important lessons parents should teach their kids? What are the foundational conversations I need to teach to build family-bonding and unity? How can I help my kids discern a ‘word’ or theme for the New Year?
I love to see how families grow over the years and generations. We hadn’t done a Christmas card in so long I really wanted to say to everyone, we’re still here and our kids are now teenagers! –Kari
We want to help bring God into the various dimensions of family life, but it doesn’t happen through an hour at church or even family prayer… so we instituted SHLEP. -Tom
Dr. Tom and Kari Curran talk about the importance of family meetings: manners, medical emergencies, media, and more! Kari reads their family Christmas letter and explains SHLEP: Share, Home, Lesson, Eat, and Prayer. Tom talks about how to help kids and families discern a Word of the Year.
