Stressed to Blessed: The Interior Life of the Homeschooling Parent

Fr. Edward Hathaway

The sanctity of everyday, seemingly mundane, life provides a wonderful opportunity for us to practice virtue and gain graces. This talk will cover how to cultivate and grow holiness, build a strong marriage, and keep your focus on Christ while raising a family in this world.

Talk notes - 
* Nazareth is a lesson in silence, prayer, family life - what it should be.  A community of love from which there is no substitute.
* From it we also learn lessons from the Craftsman Son on work, which is demanding yet redeeming.  Jesus was a small business owner.
* Say the noon Angelus - a telegram to God
* Spiritual reading keeps us fresh

* Have holy images in every room
* Let people see Jesus in you, be merciful.
