The Joyful Mysteries of Life
Price: $9.95


Written by Catholic parents for their own children, this book introduces the "facts of life" to pre-teens in a reverent and respectful manner by presenting the biological facts in the context of meditations on the joyful mysteries of the Rosary. Chastity is shown to be the Christian way of living out God's will as it encourages an attitude of reverence for the mysteries of procreation. Illustrated.

Originally published in France, this book has been so popular that it has already been translated and published in six other language editions.

The Joyful Mysteries of Life is a response to the Church's call for good resources for education in sexuality. With its predominantly spiritual and moral emphasis, in a positive, clear and delicate way, this book is designed to assist parents in their task of formation."
- Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, President, Pontifical Council for the Family

Every Parent Should Have This Little Orange Book! December 14, 2018
Reviewer: Jessica Garza Weinress from Soquel, CA United States  
Very simple and sweet.  Each chapter is about 2 pages plus a black and white photo plus review questions at the end of each section.  It is not overwhelming and it’s an easy read. My son was very interested in the book and he almost thought the chapters were too short but in my opinion it really just leaves you more time for conversation about the chapter you read together.

The chapters are titled:
1)The cradle of the tiniest babies
2)God prepares a cradle in every woman
3)The baby is born
4)The vacations of women
5)The role of the father
6)The vocations of men
7)Original sin, and why God gave us marriage
8)Love is not so much what you feel as what you do
9)A girl’s virginity
10)A boy’s purity
11)Temptations, falls, forgiveness
12)What is freedom
13)Making a commitment ‘For a boy’ ‘For a girl’

I would recommend it to any parent!
