Absolutely Amazing

I've known Fr. Beck for over a decade and he was instrumental in my conversion to traditional Catholicism when I was a teenager, but now I am married with 4 young children and these conferences are invaluable. They have so much depth and practical ways to raise children in a way that will set them up for success in the Faith. I wish I had listened to these before I started having children so that I could have implemented it from the very beginning. Absolutely amazing!
