Practicing Families is an on-line ministry that seeks to support families in their efforts to follow the way of Jesus. This blog is the primary component of the ministry. You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

In this (virtual) place, we are about:

  • Real Faith–This isn’t about saying or believing the “right” things. It’s about doing the best we can to honor God and follow Jesus every day.
  • Real Life–But, of course, we screw up a lot. We are not perfect parents or perfect Christians. And we won’t pretend to be.
  • Real Grace–We celebrate together the good news that God loves us anyway. In the midst of our imperfect parenting, our imperfect families, God meets us and sustains us.

Here’s what you’ll find on the blog:

  • Every Monday: Family Liturgies–Prayers and practices for you to use with your family (or not)

  • Every Wednesday: Practicing with Children–Stories of how we experience God in the midst of family life

  • Every Friday: Practicing Parents–Spiritual insight gleaned from parenting, and about parenting

If you are in need of prayer or feel called to offer prayer for other parents, please visit the prayer room.

You will find information on other resources for practicing families on the resource page.

Lots of people make this blog possible. You can read about some of them on our contributor page.

And finally, if you want to read about the dream for this project, check out the Welcome post.

Thanks for stopping by. And we hope you’ll join in the conversations.
