Six Sacred Rules for Families
A Spirituality for the Home
by Tim and Sue Muldoon
"Tim and Sue Muldoon's lovely work is a warm, practical, inviting, user-friendly, and family-tested manual on ways to find God in the complex world of the family."
—James Martin, S.J., author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything
Tim and Sue Muldoon bring a wealth of experience as parents, spiritual guides, and religious educators to a practical book for parents that offers six sacred rules for integrating faith formation into everyday family life.
The Muldoons talk about cultivating a spirituality of the home and how to create meaning-making within your family, everyday.
"This new book helps to fill a huge gap in the world of Christian spiritual writing: the home." Read what James Martin and others are saying about the Muldoon's new book.
In this book, we are suggesting that authentic spirituality is not something above or beyond everyday life but embedded right in the messy midst of it.

To the extent that we offer our children ways of imagining God always present among us in our families, we help them to understand that everyday life is shot through with grace.
The Muldoons offer a realistic picture of a family, struggling together to find God and grace as they face trials, celebrate life and learn about love from one another.
We’re going to have to be Christian in new ways in this post-Christian society. Perhaps the best way to begin that project is by resurrecting the lost art of Christian homemaking.
The Muldoons manage, in a slender volume, to outline and discuss what a terrible, beautiful, intrusive, and ultimately enriching thing it is to cast our nets into the depths of marriage and family life.
This is the nature of family life and spirituality: doing ordinary things in extraordinary ways and making sacred the present moments of life one by one.
This is a book I’ll be dipping back into, reminding myself of my priorities and the helps I have, encouraging myself on this parenting journey.
