Back to school

Live audio chat with Melanie Wahlberg, C.S.

In this chat Melanie answers questions such as: How can I pray to support the schools in our communities, if I don't have children? How can a new college-age student go off to school and not "fall from grace" in a party environment? Tell us more about the spiritual discernment that both teachers and staff need to express. What are some ways we can actively support our schools? What prayerful ideas can you provide regarding the issue of addiction to video games that impacts doing homework? And what if my child's talents are being ignored by his teacher?

In each of her answers, Melanie points to the underlying spiritual reality of the situation and the power of God to make this seen. She also shows how being a witness to the universality of divine Love brings the school community together in progressive and productive ways for everyone involved – students, teachers, parents. And Melanie points to how important it is for the parents to trust their child's relationship to God. God is the Parent and He knows what His children need.
