Activities

Saint Peter reminds us:
“Always to ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do it with gentleness and reverence” (1 Pet. 3:15).
Make a special effort this week to share opinions and insights with gentleness and reverence.

“Let all the earth cry out to God with joy” (Ps. 66:1).
Write your own version of Psalm 66, highlighting all that God has done for you and your own reasons to cry out to Him with joy and gratitude. Use your personal psalms as part of your family prayer this week.
