To prepare for the sacraments we will be receiving this year, we are focusing on the Fruits of the Spirit to refine keep our hearts pure, and touch the lives of those around us. Our first fruit we are focusing on is self-control. We will be talking and working on ways to practice self-control in our homes, in the classroom, and out in the world.
This week, brainstorm ideas of how we already practice self-control. You can also discuss areas where more self-control can be practiced. Make sure to celebrate the moments when your child practices self-control. This might be one of the hardest fruits to cultivate, but one worthy of our time indeed!
