Getting Lost in a Book

Mr. Jason Joseph is a teacher at Cistercian Preparatory School in Irving where he lives with his wife Heather and three daughters.  Jason obtained his B.A. in Plan II/Philosophy from The University of Texas at Austin and his M.A. in Politics from the University of Dallas. 

 Being ‘well read’ is a saying similar to “being fit” or “staying healthy” in today’s society:  The resolution is made, but never carried out.  And if not for us, we want it at least for our kids.  But how do we get there?  With the many distractions, activities and busyness of daily life, how do we cultivate a culture of reading at home?  Jason Joseph offers his reflections based upon his time as a teacher and father.

Developing a Vision for your Family

Mr. John Keefe worked in a personal injury law firm, and in the City of Boston Law Department. John is a former Trustee at St. Sebastian’s School in Needham. He is married to Patti and have eleven children and 22 grandchildren. John has been involved with Family Enrichment.

Parents need to have a vision, an idea of where are we taking ourselves and the children. A family narrative can be useful in establishing a family culture that supports the development of children, who become adults, who know how to use freedom to choose the good. The spousal relationship creates the primary environment factor for the children and provides for the children what they need to learn how to love and thrive.
