I've always been a fan of the radio program Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippett Recently, I listened to the episode entitled "Spiritual Parenting" http://speakingoffaith.publicradio.org/programs/spiritualityofparenting/index.shtml and it inspired me to begin this blog. If you are a parent, grandparent, caregiver, or godparent I encourage you to find an hour to listen to this on your computer (at work, while surfing the web, while reconciling your checkbook) or on your MP3 player (in the car, while working out, while waiting for your child's practice to finish).
This segment is an interview with Rabbi Sandy Sasso. I have several of her children's books in my collection, and loved their beauty and insightfulness the moment I saw them. For her, spirituality is both simple and enormous, challenging and embracing, joyful and serious.
I hope that you make the effort to multi-task this podcast into your life over the next few weeks, and then take a moment to respond here about your thoughts.
