HI! I’m a cradle catholic married with 3 small kids. I homeschool my oldest and we are in general a busy family. I am struggling with how to pray. We pray rote prayers daily, a morning offering, small prayers thru the day and nightly prayers. My husband prays a daily rosary and we sometimes do it together. The problem I’m having is this; I do not have a relationship with Christ. I say the prayers, go thru the motions but I’m not ‘there’, centered & focused. I understand it’s important to ‘fake it until you make it’, be an example for my kids. But I want more. I need more.
I am looking for suggestions or ideas (books, links ect) of what you do for daily prayer?, how do you teach your kids to pray?, how do you pray for your kids? how do you do it all and remain sane? We need something simple yet powerful. I’m open to all suggestions. Thanks for your help.
