Home Faith Formation
If you’re looking for an easy program to grow in faith as a family, you’ve come to the right place. Faith & Flavor’s vision is just that- easy to follow, whole family involvement with nuggets of inspiration and food for thought. I’m no “expert teacher”. This approach came from my personal experience in wanting something creative and fun while keeping the attention of my kids.
What is a Family Spice Packet? Each Family Spice Packets comes with a lesson, coloring page and recipe or activity. We offer several downloads for free so that you can try them out. Additional Family Spice Packets are available for purchase in our shop. The lessons are inspired by the book, The 35 Doctors of the Church by Fr. Christopher Rengers, O.F.M. Cap. This book is a masterpiece and well worth the time to read! While you as the parents don’t HAVE to read the book in order to do the lesson with your child, it is certainly recommended. This embraces the heart of family faith formation. EVERYONE is learning and growing TOGETHER. Every aspect of the Family Spice Packets might not be applicable to every age. However, it will offer some take-a-way for all involved.
Do I need to purchase the Coloring Book? Each Family Spice Packet DOES include the coloring page that you can make copies of. So no, you don’t need to purchase the coloring books. However, the coloring books are priced cheaply and are printed on thicker paper so as to not bleed through when using markers or watercolor pencils. I find that kids (big and small) enjoy having their own book. It gives them the ability to see the series as a whole instead of just individual lessons.
Remember, faith is caught as well as taught. Parents- model your faith. Be a living example. Even if you don’t consider yourself a strong Catholic Christian, you can model how to make faith a priority in your life.
Just a little extra- we’ve added all of our Christ Music Kids sheet music in the store that you can download for free. If your kids need some new music to practice, this could be a start and adds some worship music into the home. The recorded songs can be streamed or downloaded on youtube, iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
Thank you for joining in on this journey! Your feedback is welcomed and encouraged!
Blessings from my Domestic Church to yours!
