Why Children Need Ignatian Spirituality (Part 3)

Prayer is an extension of the conversations that you have together in your family. You bring God into the joys and concerns of your family life. Make prayer simple and relatable. Recall the day; pray for loved ones; pray for what your children hope for or are afraid of. Teach them that experience is the holy ground where Christ walks with them. They will, over time, hopefully, want to know more about Him.
