Catholic family happiness begins here

Time-tested strategies
to help you strengthen your
marriage and raise good kids!


Here's the book you need to help shield your family from the effects of our selfish secular culture which destroys families and poisons relationships.

Fr. Lawrence Lovasik, popular author of the bestselling Hidden Power of Kindness and dozens of other books, offers faithful Catholics the essential ingredients to a loving marriage and a stable, happy family.

Unlike most modern guides for parents, The Catholic Family Handbookdetails simple but often overlooked ways you can develop the virtues necessary for a good marriage, instill good character in your children, protect them from the many sinful enticements of the world, and make child-rearing truly spiritual.

Fr. Lovasik even explains how to teach your children the all-but-vanished art of good manners, and gives you common-sense tips on how to deal with misbehavior, use punishment prudently, and even discipline teenagers wisely and effectively.

You'll also learn:
  • The secret of gaining God's blessing and peace upon your family: do you know it?
  • Common mistakes fathers make that can damage their families irrevocably
  • Two sacrifices you must make if you want to have a good Catholic family
  • Ten rights your children have — and three duties you have to them
  • Sex education: how to navigate this minefield in a way that's good for your kids
  • Eleven simple steps you can take to bring harmony to your marriage right now
  • Four qualities that every good parent has
  • Plus hundreds of other helpful hints and wise suggestions to help you imbue your marriage and family with solid Catholic values

The Catholic Family Handbook will
make your family happier — and holier!

Keeping a faithful prayer life with your family isn't easy. From herding distracted children to managing the seemingly endless litany of prayers and devotions, our spiritual life all too often feels frantic and burdensome.

This isn't the way it should be. Our prayer life, our family life, and our work life should — and can! — be in harmony. When they are, our family is a powerhouse of grace, and Our Lord transforms our home into a little Eden — a little bit of heaven on earth.

With simplicity and holy wisdom, authors David Clayton and Leila Marie Lawler show you how to bring peace to your home by integrating your family into the calm, truly joyful way of Mother Church. Her feasts and seasons, prayers and devotions are gifts that draw us closer to God and unfold before us His marvelous plan of salvation.

To help you live the liturgical life of the Church more fully, David and Leila reclaim here an almost lost tradition that families used for centuries to build a beautiful bridge between home and church: the little oratory.

Consisting of a modest table and icons, the little oratory is a visible sign of spiritual awareness and devotion. It extends the Eucharistic worship of the Mass into the heart of your home, spiritually nourishing your family and preparing them to transform the world through prayer and charity.
Building your own little oratory is simple, and in these pages you'll discover just how easy it is. In fact, you likely have most of the pieces in your home already except, perhaps, the sacred art. That's why we've included here seven full-colored icons that are ready for framing, enabling you to get started right away!

"This is one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen. How I wish I'd had it when I first became a Catholic, not just for myself, as a husband and father, but for my family, too."
Scott Hahn

"This book is a rare treasure."

"Leila Lawler and David Clayton offer wisdom and grace to Catholics seeking to make their homes a holy shelter."
