How to Make Your Family Holy!

Turn on any sitcom, news hour program, reality TV show, or shock jock on the radio and modern family life is usually the butt of every joke -- bumbling dads, overworked moms, sarcastic kids, shallow relationships, and misdirected priorities.

Add in the real-life issues of money, time, technology, and peer pressure and it's no wonder families are feeling under attack.

The question is: How can we build a spiritual stronghold that can withstand the onslaught?

Author, speaker, and experienced mother of four Marge Fenelon offers simple, practical ways to foster a holy atmosphere in your home -- from which everything else can flow.

Discover how to set priorities, form ideals, and keep your family grounded with a workable spiritual schedule. Learn to live "in the world, but not of the world" as you help your children develop the skills and attitudes that will serve them well, no matter what the challenge.

"Strengthening Your Family presents a treasure trove of timeless truths of the Cathoilc Church that provide help, hope, and inspiration even in the most challenging of parenting situations." -- Teresa Tomeo, Syndicated Catholic Talk Show Host

"Marge gets it right as she relates how focusing on encouraging and expecting growth in virtue and character will lead to the only real, true, ultimate goal -- holiness of life." -- From the Foreword by Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York
