“Our children come from God and it is our responsibility to see that they return to him. Good religious education begins at birth. Reading Questions for God to/with your child and making nightly prayers a priority will go far in laying a strong, Catholic foundation.
As parents, we realize how inquisitive our children are about life, but we tend to ignore this quality when it comes to our Faith. Our little ones are eager to learn how everything began and is sustained. They are able to understand and absorb so much more than we realize. It is our responsibility to capitalize on the eagerness of the little ones and teach them their spiritual heritage. It is never too early to begin.
Children easily learn material in story form. Q4G presents God’s salvation history plan as a story, complete with a beginning (creation), a middle (the prophets and covenants) and an end (redemption and eternity). The prayers at the end of each book will be quickly learned when incorporated into nightly prayers.
Parents and teachers know that learning begins at birth. Language and basic rules are learned through an ongoing process throughout the life of a child. It is my belief that we are amply addressing the “reading, writing and arithmetic” aspects of the child’s early development, however, the spiritual aspect of a child’s development has been generally overlooked. If a child can learn the vocabulary of the English language, the child can learn the vocabulary of the Church. If a child can learn the ABC’s, a child can learn the basic prayers of the Church. If a child is to believe that God loves him/her and he/she should love Him back, a child needs to know Who and what God is. It is our responsibility to begin teaching the truths of our faith as early as we begin teaching the ABC’s.
My goal has been to help children and families on this earthly journey to better know, love and serve God, beginning today. God Bless you all!

“Spend quality quiet time together with your young children. In a day, we have 1440 minutes available: we can find 10-15 minutes for our child — it is called time management. Outstanding athletes have one thing in common they must do: repetition, repetition, repetition.
God bless you and your family that our Lord will give you the desire to invest the quality time each day with your firstborn child and all the others to follow.”
Deacon Roger B. Olds, Sr., husband of Peggy Olds, author of Q4G, VirTru Powers LLC
