the importance of the family

Our seminars are founded on the dignity of the person, marriage and family, and embrace all women regardless of religious, racial, ethnic or economic status.

How important it is to take good care of the family! It is and should be the fertile soil in which our path begins, develops and finishes. At each stage of life, in each situation, and in each social condition we are and remain sons and daughters.

The family is the place where we discover the beauty of authentic human values.

Although we are not completely determined by the circumstances of our birth and upbringing, the harmonious development of a child’ personality requires that from the first moment children know they are loved in the family, so they in turn may love others.

In the family, a woman discovers that her qualities as a mother are irreplaceable. The effort to be faithful to God in her mission will prompt her to create a welcoming environment that is apt for personal growth, for affection and respect, for sacrifice and self-giving.

Women are called to bring to the family, to society and to the Church, characteristics which are their own and which they alone can give: their gentle warmth and untiring generosity, their love for detail, their quick-wittedness and intuition, their simple and deep piety, their constancy...
— St. Josemaria Escriva, Conversations, 87

opportunity to share ideas with other women

The Art of Living for Women provides women with a time and space to exchange ideas with other women... some your same age, others older, who can serve as role models and mentors. 

 
 

ART of LIVING VISION & MISSION


We believe that work in the home has a universal value that is founded on these stable realities:

  • The human person is composed of body and soul, matter and spirit.

  • Marriage is the foundation of the family.

  • Family is the foundation of society.

  • All work is service, and people learn to serve in the home.

We believe the home is both a physical space and a spiritual reality.

  • The home provides an environment where people develop and mature humanly and spiritually.

  • The home teaches through the material order and beauty of its walls, floors, bedrooms, and table settings.

  • The home is a place where one’s individuality is nurtured and loved, and where one learns to work and care for others.

We believe that women play a vital and unique role within and from their homes.

  • Whether married or single, with or without children, living alone or with others, women have a special capacity and intuition to provide for the basic needs of others: food, shelter, clothing, health, unconditional love, a sense of belonging and security. Housework, far from being an obstacle to a woman’s development, can be enriching and fulfilling.

We believe that the work of the home is true professional work, and requires professional preparation.

  • In the past women have fought hard for the freedom to be in the public square and to work in professions such as business, government, science, technology and engineering. These have been welcome and necessary achievements. We likewise believe that the work of the home is true professional work, which needs to be justly recognized, compensated and esteemed by women themselves, as well as by their families and society at large.
