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!

Simple, not easy
Any couple who reads this together and puts it into practice, problem solved! Although this advice can even help if your spouse is not with the program. Very helpful marriage tips.

Best parenting book in print!!!
This is hands down the best parenting book I have ever read. Unlike so many other parenting books which offer fluff, this one contains concrete actions you can take to strengthen your family and be both a better spouse and parent. On top of that, the advice in this book has withstood the test of time and doesn't contain the novelties or fads of modern parenting books that have either been discredited or soon will be.

Love the book
This book is a wonderful guide on how to incorporate the Catholic beliefs into your home. I am currently in the process of becoming Catholic, along with my two kids, and I can't get enough books to read because of my total amazement of how I have missed this in the past. I have since passed the book on to my husband and told him it would be good for him - even if he just reads a chapter or two.
