Praying Together

All Family Time is Sacred Time.

Each moment counts. From getting ready in the morning, through meals and sports practices, to the final kiss goodnight, each moment given to your child matters. It may not always be the beautifully, scripted Instagram shot, in fact, it may be a messy moment that matters most. Just remember, God is with you in each of these moments, messy or beautiful. 

  Praying together may feel weird in the beginning, but the pay off can be pretty great.
