How do you raise kids who care? Education professor William Damon says that one of the first and most important steps in raising moral children is to nurture their ability to feel empathy. It was an awesome night at Saint Michael! Because Jesus is both God and man, he reveals the nature of God in a way we humans can witness and understand. When Jesus learned of the death of his dear friend Lazarus, he was overcome by tears and revealed the compassionate nature of God.

My mother has inspired her children and grandchildren in this way for decades.

Here are two questions to add to your prayer before meals that will inspire your family to serve now and in the future: What am I grateful for today?
Whom did I help today? Parents spend a lot of time sorting. We sort the laundry and the silverware, toys and coupons, junk mail and bills. So how do you decide how your family will spend its precious time and energy? Prudence, the virtue that helps us make decisions based on wisdom rather than impulse, can help you sort.
