Perfect for Families Young and Old
This podcast will help you and your family get more out of Mass on Sundays. Listen to it on the way to Mass to prepare, or turn it on after Mass as a meaningful reflection. It is a great source of discussion topics for you and your kids. My kids from the ages of 6 to 10 all sit still and listen to it, and I can tell that they are paying attention! The topics and reflections are also relatable for older kids and adults too. Give it a listen!
A perfect addition to our family’s routine!
This has been such a warm, comforting addition that has been so easy to add to our family’s routine! The messages are short and sweet, but full of pertinent and insightful information that is easy for everyone in our house to process and listen to. We started listening during Advent this year, and it has been a treat- festive, peaceful, and enriching. It feels like a new Advent tradition, but I’m confident that we will love the content and continue listening after the Christmas season too.
Enkindle enriches our experience of the Mass!
We listen to Enkindle every week on the way to church as a way to prepare our hearts for Mass. The kids are always engaged by the anecdotes and often bring up the connections they’ve made later in the week. Enkindle has been wonderful for our family—Mom and Dad too!!
