THE CATHOLIC PARENTING PROGRAM THAT IS

BEAUTIFUL

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Length: 5 hours and 40 min (approx.)

Format: DVD set, Downloadable

Language: English

Company: Evango

Me & My House is a practical game plan for Catholic parents who are struggling with all the things that parents struggle with. We challenge you to do little things. To make little changes that will make a huge impact on your family.

In this Catholic Parenting Program, you will discover the foundations that can strengthen your motherhood and fatherhood. You will learn the habits that can make parenting easier, and the habits that you absolutely want to avoid. In fact, we will get so practical that we'll discuss discipline and how to set boundaries, so that by the end of the program you will have a very clear sense of how you want to build your unique family culture with the children God has given you.

We have also included an entire section on the Faith, so that you can begin guiding your son or daughter towards God’s plan for their lives in a way that is natural and effective.

The program runtime is approximately 5 hours and 40 minutes, and comes with a Participant's Guide and Leader's Guide. 

Me & My House has been reviewed by the Church and has been awarded Her two seals​ of approval, the Nihil Obstat and the Imprimatur.

 

The first indicates that our Catholic Parenting Program is without doctrinal or moral error, and the second is a statement on behalf of our Ordinary that the work can be printed.  

Without these, no Catholic family, parish or even diocese would know if the content of a program is in line with Catholic teaching OR EVEN if the Church is aware of the program at all. 

Nihil Obstat:
Rev. Fausto Bailo
Censor Deputatus
25 September 2018

Imprimatur:

Kyla Sullivan, proud mother of nine

I am so proud of my husband, Patrick. By gathering our experiences and combining them with his unique gifts, Me & My House has the potential to help so many Catholic parents move from surviving to thriving in their God-given vocations. Imagine what that could do for the universal Church!”

The dioceses are starting to talk...

Elizabeth A. Nguyen

Diocese of Corpus Christi

I watched all of the sample videos, and I was so impressed that I ordered the full set of DVDs.

 

This is exactly the message that is needed for Catholic parents everywhere.

 

I also love the quality of the videos and how short and sweet they are.

 

Sometimes the parents are even more distracted than the children, so it is a challenge to keep their attention for more than 10 minutes at a time.

Yvette Bourque

Diocese of Pembroke

To the best of my knowledge this is the first ever video series on raising your kids in a Catholic family….its long overdue.
 

The short videos are so helpful. I can see this would be especially useful for those Catholics who have not been brought up in their faith and have never seen the faith lived themselves.

 

The videos are a must see if you are going to raise your kids Catholic. I wish there were available when my children were young.

Me & My House is the highest-quality and most practical  Catholic parenting course I've ever seen.  Thank you so much for creating this spectacular program Patrick! Prayers for you, your beautiful family, and your mission”

Charisse Tierney

Paving the Path to Purity Blog

I love the practical tips this program provides. Not only does it inspire me to strive for holiness within our family, but it also shows me exactly how to do that.

Rosa Sautner

A Catholic Mom in Hawaii Blog

These videos are very practical.  Patrick gradually introduces ways to help you implement solid, Catholic teaching in your home, in raising your children, and in relating to your spouse

Kate Taliaferro

Daily Graces Blog

These videos are very impactful and are full – I mean really, really full! – of great ideas, tips, exercises and things to consider for your own unique family.”

Gessica Tastove

Catholic Mom Vibes Blog

I loved that I found all of these things in just one program. From a dad who understands, and has been through it! Not just a childless child psychologist who has ” all the answers”

Desiree Hausam

Green Catholic Burrow Blog

This is one reason I am so pleased with the Me & My House program. It fills a need that seems underserved in the Church – a full-orbed, integrated class on childrearing that is founded upon the faith and isn’t afraid to touch on things like habits and discipline.

Sara Estabrooks

To Jesus Sincerely Blog

While ideal for new and growing parents, I think this course is a great refresher for all – and will help increase support and build a stronger, more vibrant community among Catholic families.

Kate Eschbach

Songs Kate Sang Blog

I sincerely appreciate that Evango sought out these indications [i.e. ecclesiastical approval]. This immediately saves us time, researching if we should be concerned of contradictions to our faith.

Alicia

Sweeping Up Joy Blog

For the parents that worry about doing enough or being enough, Sullivan’s approach is to focus on the aspects of parenting that will actually have a lasting impact on children.

Anni

A Beautiful, Camouflauged, Mess of a Life Blog

I felt as though there was a camaraderie – a feeling as though he is in the proverbial trenches with me, rather than fighting against my approach to parenting. In the episodes I viewed, Mr. Sullivan wasn’t interested in laying blame; rather, he was interested in cultivating and deepening his viewer’s intentionality toward parenting.

Carissa Pluta

The Myth Retold Blog

The episodes were the perfect combination of theology and practicality, making it both edifying and encouraging.”

“I also loved that, while each episode built on the last, they could easily stand alone, making them perfect for busy parents watching them in their ‘free time.’

Monica McConkey

Arma Dei - Equipping Catholic Families

These videos are very practical.  Patrick gradually introduces ways to help you implement solid, Catholic teaching in your home, in raising your children, and in relating to your spouse.
