Here are 7 ways to ‘tend the field’ within each of us:

  1. Be thankful for God’s blessings. Keep a gratitude journal.


  1. Develop small, daily, life-giving habits.


  1. Ponder a little bit of Scripture each day.


  1. Stay close to the sacramental life of the Church.


  1. Don’t feed your mind with junk food. Be discerning about what you read, view.


  1. Stay focused on persons not things; on Jesus, not religious ideology.


  1. Raise your children according to God’s teachings of love.
