Does this sound like you?
- ”I feel like we all come home and plug into our digital devices. We’re in the same room, but we’re connecting to everyone but our own family.”
- “I’m stuck in a rut — chores, homework, sports — what can we do to break out of the routine?”
- “We aren’t talking to each other, we’re talking at each other. Help!”
- “Summer vacation terrifies me. What am I going to do with these kids all summer long?”
- “I see these beautiful magazine layouts, and feel like my family is a failure. How can I make memories when I can barely make dinner? And no hot glue guns, please.”
- “I know family is important. I know God is important. But I’m afraid the faith is becoming one more chore for us.”
- “I miss being active in ministry. What can families with young children do to serve the Church?”
Here’s why Catholic Family Fun is for YOU:
- No-tech family activities for unplugged family-connecting time.
- Outings and adventures for invisible budgets.

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 Reinhard’s Catholic Family Fun: A Guide for the Adventurous, Overwhelmed, Creative, or Clueless.
Sarah 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 grow in love together. 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.
