“Families are so busy today. We are always on the go. Even with the best of intentions, family fun time can easily get swallowed up by all the ‘must-do’s’ of life. It seems like there is no time for having fun together. Yet, having fun together is exactly what we need in order to grow in love and to keep our family close. My own family needs a healthy dose of fun on a daily basis. But if you’re like me, sometimes I’m at a loss for new ideas. We end up doing the same old things together, which can drastically reduce the fun-factor for all of us. “We need something different, something new. What we need is inspiration and a bunch of great ideas. And that’s exactly what we find in Sarah A. Reinhard’sCatholic Family Fun: A Guide for the Adventurous, Overwhelmed, Creative, or Clueless. “Sarah A. Reinhard has a knack for getting to the heart of things. In simple and plain language, Sarah shares with us a multitude of good, fun, and practical ideas for families to row in love to ether. And she
shares these ideas with us with a dose of ‘Yes, you can do this’ encouragement. Catholic Family Fun gives me the extra boost I need to make room in my busy life to have holy and wholesome fun with the people who are most important to me, my family.”
