Publisher's Description

Faith Beginnings helps parents form and nurture their preschool children's faith development, even in the earliest stages of life. In an era when preschool child development is being more deliberately understood, one might consider how essential it is to teach children about their faith. The authors provide concrete faith-related activities and suggestions to help parents nurture the faith life of their infant, toddler, and preschool children.

Author Bio

Amy M. Garro received her B.A. in theology from the University of Notre Dame. During her time there, she was trained to be an assistant teacher at a local daycare, and learned specifically about catechizing to different age groups. After graduating, she went on to complete an internship at a parish youth ministry office. She worked with a mentor who instructed her in adapting catechetical programs and tools, and also worked on a dynamic team providing ministry to high schoolers. After completing her internship, Amy taught at a small Catholic school that focused its schedule around daily Mass and sought to incorporate faith and catechesis into all of its subjects. She currently works at home where she mothers her toddler and newborn, and spends her free time writing and sewing. Michele E. Chronister received her B.A. and M.A. degrees in theology from the University of Notre Dame. While completing her Master's degree through Notre Dame's Institute for Church Life's ECHO program, she had the opportunity to work with preschoolers in a catechetical setting, through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program. She was amazed by what children so young could learn about their faith, and that realization continues to inspire her. Through the ECHO program she had the opportunity to take master's level courses on the art of catechesis, studying how to catechize, the history of catechesis, and the process of developing and evaluating catechetical materials. She works to apply all of this in her daily life, as she raises her two year old daughter, and shares nuggets of catechetical inspiration for parents on her blog, "MyDomestic Monastery" (welcometomydomesticmonastery.blogspot.com), a blog with readers from across the country, as well as internationally. She currently resides in Missouri with her husband and daughter.
