The most powerful thing you can do for your kids

As parents, we are called to be co-creators with God. Let us never forget the partner we have working along side us — actually in us! Through our baptism, we are inserted into the mystical body of Christ, that is, the Church. We are clothed with him; he is so very close to us — he is with us and in us. There is great power in this relationship. As Jeannie Cunnion points out in her article The most powerful thing you can do for your kids, we build and maintain this relationship with prayer, and through it, we can find peace.
