How to be in the top 8%

new year resolutions Jan 10, 2018

Did you know that only 8% of people achieve their new year’s resolutions? (I read that on the internet so it must be true.) Although we are over a week into the new year, it’s not too late to make a resolution that sticks. 

I’ve made a lot of resolutions when it comes to parenting that I’ve failed at. Most of these failed resolutions have to do with my lack of patience.

  • “I am not going to lose my temper. I will be patient”
  • “I am won’t bribe my kids anymore.” 
  • “We won’t be late for church again.”

I’ve failed at these many times.

I’ve come to believe the best resolutions we can make as Catholic parents are in relationship to our faith journey and helping our kids in theirs. Perhaps you have heard the saying “you can’t give what you don’t have.” 

I want to suggest that one of your new year’s resolutions is being committed to knowing and receiving the love of Jesus in your daily life. This might sound simple or like a churchy answer, but when it comes to teaching our faith to our kids, it’s all about relationship. It’s difficult to share Jesus with our kids if our relationship with God is lacking.

Good news- today is a great day to start or to recommit ourselves. Here’s the best part. God’s going to show up. You can trust in his presence when we make time and space for him in our lives. Resolving to know and receive his love in a greater way this year is about trusting in him and his promises.

You can be in that top 8% of people who keep their resolutions.

The reason we created the Catholic Parenting 101 course isn’t about the nuts and bolts of parenting. It’s a course designed to help you grow in your faith and your relationship with Jesus. If you are looking for practical and dynamic teaching on prayer, Jesus, the Sacraments and more to help you with your resolutions, we guarantee you’ll get the help you are looking for in this series. It comes with a 21-day money back guarantee. 

Whether you buy the series or not, know that you are in our prayers today and may God bless your new year!

In Jesus,

Andy Lesnefsky
