Fundamental to a life well lived is a foundation of faith.
We can try to rationalize that we don’t need faith, or that we don’t have time, or that we are stronger than that.

Aware of what a solid, shared, and practiced belief system can do to help each member of the family feel confident not only of their place in their own family, but also in their smaller community as well as the larger society as a whole.
Isn’t that really what each of us need, and want? To know that we belong?
