Households of Faith

Discover Households

Discover the Joy of a Spiritually Vibrant Household!

Barna Group studies developed in partnership with Lutheran Hour Ministries have revealed much about the state of religion in the United States and how faith is perceived and discussed in public. But what about how faith is being nurtured in private—with the spouses, children, parents, roommates and even frequent visitors who spend time under our roofs?

The timeliness of this research is so important since people are spending more time at home than they have before. This makes for a great opportunity to examine our own households and start practices that we can continue in the future.

Let’s get started!

Check out the videos below to learn from LHM staff about the materials created for Households of Faith.

Do you have a spiritually vibrant home?

The research for Households of Faith identified three practices that anyone can apply to their households. Spiritually vibrant Christian households are more likely to regularly participate in applying spiritual disciplines, engaging in spiritual conversations, and extending hospitality. Our resources are meant to nurture the faith in your household no matter how spiritually vibrant it is.

Where do I begin?

Nurturing the faith in our households can seem like quite a task, but it doesn’t have to be! Our FREE LHM Learn courses will help equip you to nurture the faith in your household.
