“Footprints for Life”

 Cultivating a Culture of Life in Our Children

What is it? Footprints for Life is a program designed to  build a Culture of Life in our children.  This program builds on a foundation of love, truth and dignity.  The program covers all of the USCCB Culture of Life topics age-appropriately, and incorporates the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy into the study of these issues.  It is designed to be easily integrated into an already existing program. 

Who should use it?  This program can be adapted for grades Kindergarten through 12th Grade.  The material was written to teach children of those ages and can be easily adjusted as needed.

Why should I use it with my students/children?  As a mother of six children and a former elementary teacher, I see the many challenges to human dignity that our children are faced with daily. It is important that we teach them to love & respect others – regardless of race, beliefs, abilities, etc. Also, children need to know that they CAN make a difference, even with the smallest of actions. By teaching our children to pray for, respect, and support those in need, we raise children that stand for what they believe in and, most importantly, come to know that God will provide. The children of today have a passion for protecting life….they just need a path.

How do I use it?  The program was created to focus on one or two USCCB topics per month.  Each month contains everything you need to create a discussion and complete a fun activity with your children.  The lessons offer material that can be incorporated into one lesson or carried out in several lessons.  “Footprints for Life” is designed to be used during the school year, September – May.
