Family Life and Parenting

Welcoming Children

Married couples are called to be open to life and generously welcome children into their home. Children are a great blessing to a family! They are not without their challenges, though, and adding children to the family can cause financial strain, career questions, and marital tension, in addition to bringing so much joy. Learning Natural Family Planning can help couples discern and respond to God’s will for their family, and adoption is also a beautiful way for families to grow.

Daily Marriage Tip

“As I have done for you, you should also do,” Jesus tells his disciples after washing their feet. (Jn 13:15) A tall order! Talk with your spouse about ways to “wash their feet” – do small, humble acts of service for each other.
