Taking It Home: Families and Faith
These booklets were written for congregations and families to use at home and in community to support them through life transitions and spiritual/ethical challenges.
Choose a booklet that interests or challenges you and your family and discover ways to talk about it. We hope these resources will help you deepen your faith and nurture your love as you learn and grow together.
These six booklets have been written by Unitarian Universalist (UU) leaders who have UU families of their own. We appreciate their faith-filled endeavors.

We acknowledge the active role of the Family Matters Task Force members and our many companions in this booklet-writing adventure. Their ideas and words, activities and pictures, creativity and pizzazz appear on the pages of every booklet. We appreciate the funding support of the Unitarian Sunday School Society and the Fund for Unitarian Universalism.
May these booklets promote intergenerational conversations, family faith development and fun!
