Family life is a spiritual path Is your family calendar so jammed that there’s never enough time to “be spiritual”? Maybe you need to think about spirituality in a new way. Author, editor, and speaker Tom McGrath shows how the hectic and ordinary moments of family life offer endless opportunities to live more deeply. This book is full of stories and ideas for parents who care about their children’s souls. McGrath suggests how we can foster a healthy spirituality in our children—while tending to our own spirits as well. He presents many useful lessons and practical strategies for passing on religious heritage, including: • Introducing children to sacred time • Examining the image of God we actively (or passively) present to our children • Fostering empathy to build our children’s moral character • Learning to pray creatively as a family • Developing spiritual disciplines as parents • Cultivating a spirit of forgiveness in the home “If you ever wanted to be a great and inspiring parent, this book gives you the tools to learn how.” —Mark Victor Hansen, co-creator, #1 New York Times best-selling series Chicken Soup for the Soul

The producer of An Inconvenient Truth, Laurie David's new mission is to help America's overwhelmed families sit down to a Family Dinner, and she provides all the reasons, recipes and fun tools to do so. Laurie David speaks from her own experience confronting the challenges of raising two teenage girls. Today's parents have lots to deal with and technology is making their job harder than ever. Research has proven that everything we worry about as parents--from drugs to alcohol, promiscuity, to obesity, academic achievement and just good old nutrition--can all be improved by the simple act of eating and talking together around the table. Laurie has written a practical, inspirational, fun (and, of course, green) guide to the most important hour in any parent's day. Chock-full chapters include: Over seventy-five kid approved fantastic recipes; tips on teaching green values; conversation starters; games to play to help even the shyest family member become engaged; ways to express gratitude; the family dinner after divorce (hint: keep eating together) and much more. Filled with moving memories and advice from the country's experts and teachers, this book will get everyone away from electronic screens and back to the dinner table.
