It’s not uncommon to be aware of the sacredness of the ordinary, such as daily life with children. As we know, children experience openings and have powerful spiritual experiences at times. Faithful Families, a new and expanded version of the 2014 title Seamless Faith, is a book that offers ways to make it easy to frame the ordinary as sacred, keeping the space open for spiritual experiences to be not only had, but talked about within the home. Smith divides the book into sections on traditions for morning, bedtime, and holidays; ceremonies for events like birth and death; and spiritual practices for all days or any day, like labyrinths. She includes things that will appeal to children, such as Listening Car Rides and Quiet Time Bags for meditation.
