The Gospel in your Family
This Gospel shares the way to true happiness: The Beatitudes.
What does it mean to be poor in spirit? Why do you think Jesus lifts this up as a desirable trait?
What does it mean to be merciful? Do you think you are merciful? Explain your answer.
What are some ways that people today are persecuted or insulted for following Jesus? What encouragement would you give them?
Gather your family today for a little brain exercise! Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw or Sudoku, puzzles engage our brains in more ways than one. Scientists have discovered that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we utilize both sides of the brain, improving memory, cognitive function, and problem-solving skills. Here are some ideas to consider:
· Do a jigsaw puzzle together as a family, Print an easy crossword, word search, or sudoku puzzle for each family member and see who can finish it first. Create mixed-age teams to create an even playing field or give older children/adults more challenging puzzles. Search the Internet for create-your-own-puzzle templates. Make your own family puzzle using family photos or hand-drawn artwork.
