Family Faith Kit



ISBN-13: 846863022564



 This special book bundle was created for families to enrich their practices of faith in the home.

  • Faithful Celebrations: Making Time with Family and Friends by Sharon Ely Pearson provides a treasure trove of ideas, activities, recipes and crafts which can be used in a variety of contexts and with all ages throughout the summer, joyfully connecting our Christian faith to the secular calendar.
  • Cross Words by Duana Cisney is a refreshingly approachable weekly devotional for youth, offering opportunities to reflect on both the blessings and challenges of daily life, with room for personal notes and drawings.
  • Faith at Home: A Handbook for Cautiously Christian Parents by Wendy Claire Barrie offers a friendly guide for families to nurture and explore faith together, with simple and inviting suggestions for such practices as creative prayer, engaging the Bible, celebrating the church year, and making home holy.
  • A packet of 5 small wooden crosses is included, to be worn or held in the hand, used in art or as part of a blessing bowl.

With over eleven years experience at both church and diocesan levels, Duana Cisney continually seeks to serve youth in new ways. She received her Advance Certification in Youth Ministry at the Seminary of the Southwest. As a teenager, she faced some tough challenges and regrets not having had a safe church family to walk alongside her. She wants our teens today to know that they will make mistakes and that God will be there for them no matter what. She feels it is important for students to know they aren’t perfect, but they are made in the image of God and that alone is wonderful. She lives in Greensboro, NC, with her husband and three teenage children.

Wendy Claire Barrie has directed programs for children, youth, and families since 1989 in seven Episcopal congregations large and small on both coasts. A former Vice-President and board member of Forma, a network of Christian formation professionals, she began her career teaching preschool and drama. A storyteller by nature and an actor by training, leading workshops and preaching are two activities she enjoys more than she ever expected. Wendy is also the exhausted mother of an especially curious son. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
