For Parents & Families
Of course we need to feed our kids–their lives depend on it!
But for our children to be really satisfied, we need to offer them The One Best Thing.
The One Best Thing: A Practical Guide for Raising Families of Faith is a multimedia resource that equips Catholic parents to recognize their children's deepest hunger, so they can guide them to experience the satisfaction that only the Lord can give.
How It Works
Step 1: Purchase your book and access all of the videos inside by using the QR code (or link, if you'd prefer).
Step 2: Let the book guide you through our research-based, customizable process to help each member of your family encounter and respond to the Lord.
Step 3: Grow in your love for one another and for the Lord, as you root your family more and more in Him.
“The One Best Thing is unlike anything I have come across in the plethora of Christian parenting books. It helps us customize our parenting to each of our children according to their developmental stages, personalities, and spiritual taste preferences. As a parent who wants my children to feast on The One Best Thing, God’s unconditional love, this video series and book is an answer to a prayer, and a resource I will gratefully turn to again and again in the years to come.”
Mary Cooney, Mom of 6
"The One Best Thing is more than good, it is perfect for its audience… it [is] both kid-friendly and orthodox, both psychologically and theologically interesting, both solid in content and practical in pedagogy. It’s exactly what our time calls for.”
Dr. Peter Kreeft, Renowned Author & Philosophy Professor at Boston College
"It's a really amazing program for teaching parents how to teach their children to pray. The materials (including the videos, which are short and very clear) are excellent and very high-quality, there are tons of resources included, and the program is so helpful with figuring out both what children's prayer preferences (and your own, while you're at it!) are and how to approach children whose prayer styles might be completely different from your own."
Monica Bernstein, Mom of 5
