A Savory Broth of Unforgettable TeachingsAnother:
"How do I get my family to spend more time together and treat Sundays as the Lord's day?"
I set the tone in my home for Sundays, and I also set the parameters and expectations for my family regarding Mass and Sunday dinner: not planning unnecessary shopping trips by fostering an atmosphere of rest and fun with friends and relatives, and hopefully even finding a quiet time to ponder and pray.
Excerpts from book:
"I remember when I was a little girl drying dishes after dinner each evening while my mother washed. I never thought of it being a painful or annoying chore. I actually enjoyed it because I was doing something with my mother. I was always bursting at the seams to let my mother in on the latest clues I had discovered in the many adventures of the Nancy Drew books I was reading at the time.

Or at times a distraught relative calls...There should be no concerns about a lost time with Jesus because our arranged prayer time was interrupted. We serve God in our children and in others. Our Lord hears our prayers..."
