Free Glory Stories Entertain and Provide Faith Formation

Glory StoriesGuest post by Caitlin Bootsma

With summer fast approaching, it’s always a challenge to adjust to the new normal, whatever that means for your family. Whether it’s fewer classes or none at all, more family togetherness on car trips and vacations or more downtime, it can be a challenge to encourage children to stay active, both physically and mentally.

This can be especially true with faith education. I don’t know about your parish, but everything seems to slow down to a snail’s pace at mine. Religious education classes are done for the year, new groups of children have received the sacraments for the first time and the youth groups have stopped meeting as regularly.

It is for this reason that Holy Heroes offer of free Glory Stories is particularly appropriate at this time of year. If you’re not familiar with Holy Heroes, they are a Catholic company whose mission is to help parents bring the joy of the faith to their families. Among many other offerings, Glory Stories are audio CDs that tell about the lives of the saints in a way that engages kids and inspires them to pursue virtue.

What’s great is that it is entertainment (but not mind-numbing TV) and the kids are learning about their faith in a fun way. Glory Stories can definitely be a lifesaver on road trips.

If you’re interested in seeing if Glory Stories are a good fit for your kids, you can sign up to receive a free audio CD with two Glory Stories as well as coloring pages that follow along with the stories and a prayer card of your choosing. Faithful, fun and free…you can’t really beat that!
