Time-tested strategies to help you strengthen your marriage and raise good kids

Here is a crucial book for you if you want to shield your family from the effects of our selfish secular culture, which destroys families and poisons relationships.

Fr. Lawrence Lovasik, the renowned author of The Hidden Power of Kindness, gives faithful Catholics all the essential ingredients of a stable and loving Catholic marriage and family — ingredients that are in danger of being lost in our turbulent age.

Using Scripture and Church teachings in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step format, Fr. Lovasik helps you understand the proper role of the Catholic father and mother and the blessings of family. He shows you how you can secure happiness in marriage, develop the virtues necessary for a successful marriage, raise children in a truly Catholic way, and much more.

Let Fr. Lovasik strengthen your marriage and family as you discover:

  • Three things you can learn from the Holy Family about living as a family today
  • The secret of gaining God’s blessing and peace upon your family: do you know it?
  • Four crucial lessons no school can teach to your children (only you can!)
  • Why marital happiness is not automatic, but must be earned (and how to earn it)
  • Common mistakes fathers make that can damage their families irrevocably
  • The primary requirement for family happiness: does your family measure up?
  • The secret of overcoming the anger that can disrupt any relationship
  • Eleven simple steps you can take to bring harmony to your marriage right now
  • Are you selfish? Sixteen searching questions to ask yourself in order to find out
  • Four qualities that every good parent has: can you name them? Do you have them?
  • Sex education: how to navigate this minefield in a way that is good for your kids
  • Plus much more that will help you imbue your family with Catholic values!

A wonderful book - so glad it is available once again!
This is a wonderful and valuable book. I welcomed its advice while my husband and I were raising our family, and often returned to its pages to reread the wisdom within. When Sophia stopped printing it a few years ago, I was crestfallen at the loss of its sound counsel, and at not being able to share it with those it would benefit. I am so happy you are printing it again, and am ordering it for our own grown children for their families, and for other growing families we know. Do not overlook this gem, or let it pass you by!

Purchased this gift for a couple with children and in need of some values and guidance. Have received positive feedback from them even though they are not practicing Catholics.
