How Our Family Prays Each Day
A Read-Aloud Story for Catholic Families
Author: Gregory K. Popcak
Illustrated by: Jacob Flores-Popcak
Are you looking for an easy way to teach your young children how to talk with Jesus throughout the day?
How Our Family Prays Each Day is a read-aloud book for children ages 4 to 8 that emphasizes the importance of praying together as a family and offers lessons on how to pray and spend time with God each day.
This 32-page hardcover book includes charming, full-color illustrations that depict eight-year-old Marty and his family—parents Joseph and Maria, siblings Zelie and Baby Lou, and their pet pelican, Pascha—as they find reasons to pray throughout their day.
From their first “Good morning, God!” to their final bedtime cuddle, the family will help your children learn an important spiritual lesson: We can talk to God whenever we need him—like before a game or test, or when someone is hurt or struggling—not just during Mass or family prayer time. The book also includes a prayer for your family to say together when you’re done reading.
How Our Family Prays Each Day was written by psychotherapist Gregory K. Popcak, illustrated by Jacob Flores-Popcak, and developed by the Catholic HŌM (Households of Mission) program at the Peyton Institute for Domestic Church Life at Holy Cross Family Ministries.
