As For Me and My House

Anita Houghton

(Author of Kerygma 4 Kids)
What role do you want God to play in the life of your children when they are adults? Do you want faith to be a powerful force that supports them in their challenges and fears? Do you want faith to ground their moral compass? Do you want your children to have hope in a world that’s filled with despair? Do you want their faith in God to be strong enough so that they have the fortitude to raise their own children in the faith?


Many parents want to make a difference in the faith lives of their children but aren’t sure how to start. Sometimes it can be like trying to navigate a road without a GPS. As For Me and My House is a practical guide to help you lead your kids to Christ and navigate this winding and sometimes bumpy road.


Written in simple and accessible language, As For Me and My House not only explores who Jesus is and why he came, but also suggests ways to help you and your family encounter Christ in a whole new way and put him at the center of your family life.

For You:

Not only help your child grow in his or her faith but allow yourself to be transformed as you grow in a closer relationship with Jesus!

For a Friend:

Share the Good News with your friends and neighbors as well as give them a copy to help them and their family along in their faith journey.

For Your Parish:

Order as a gift for all your parents as well as your catechists!

“Mommy, Mommy! When you pray, what’s in your heart? What do you say?”
