Family and Parent Resources
These resources help parents as they engage the question: “What does it mean to be a family of Integrity?” In addition to families using them at home, you might also use them to engage parents collectively, for instance in a Parent Circle that meets on Sunday afternoon or mid-week. And don’t forget to check out Soul Matters family guide called Soulful Home. It helps your families weave the monthly theme into their home life. Learn more about it HERE.

Why is it important to spend time together? What happens if people get too busy sometimes to “go fly a kite”?
How does Mary Poppins teach and demonstrate … integrity? ” – Common Sense Media
