Faithful Families at Home helps you connect faith to your family’s everyday lives and share meaningful spiritual experiences with your children, especially during these long and uncertain days and evenings isolated at home.

Praise for Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home

“Traci Smith is a gracious guide through practices that are simple, profound, and welcoming.” —MaryAnn McKibben Dana, author of Sabbath in the Suburbs: A Family's Experiment with Holy Time

“In a culture that has become isolating, technological, fractious, and cold, Traci Smith has given us a survival kit of practices to help families stay close to what is sacred, meaningful, intimate, and alive. Faithful Families will not only help parents nurture the souls of their children, it will keep them sane within the chaotic forces of 21st century family life." —Mark Yaconelli, author, The Gift of Hard Things and Contemplative Youth Ministry

“This book is a must-have for any family wishing to live as faithful disciples of Jesus. Traci Smith has created a gold mine of resources, ideas, and practices that invite children, teens, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, houseguests, pets—everyone who makes up all kinds of families—to actively form one another in authentic Christian faith. Get this book for your family. Give it to families in your faith community. Drop copies of it from an airplane. It’s sure to have an impact on all who use it.”—David M. Csinos, Assistant Professor of Practical Theology at Atlantic School of Theology and Founder of Faith Forward
