Made This Way: How to Prepare Kids to Face Today’s Tough Moral Issues - Bulk Order - Case of 20 Books
A generation ago, Christian parents didn’t have to worry about how to explain transgenderism to their nine-year-old, or help their teenager deal with mockery at school for believing in traditional marriage.
But today, as our culture’s moral center continues to fly apart and with every form of deviance publicly aired and celebrated, we have no choice but to equip our kids to understand and to own the truth about such issues.
It’s not easy, though—these are sensitive questions, and with the wrong approach we can harm our kids’ innocence even as we try to preserve it.
In Made This Way: How to Prepare Kids to Face Today’s Tough Moral Issues, Leila Miller and Trent Horn give parents (guardians and teachers, too!) crucial tools and techniques to form children with the understanding they need—appropriate to their age and maturity level—to meet the world’s challenges.
Their secret lies in an approach that begins not with the Bible or Church teaching but with the natural law. In kid-friendly ways, Miller (Primal Loss) and Horn (Persuasive Pro-Life) help you communicate how the right way to live is rooted in the way we’re made. God’s design for human nature is a blueprint or owner’s manual for moral living that any child can grasp through reason and apply to modern controversies over sex, marriage, life… and the quest for human fulfillment.
Topics covered include:
- Sex Outside of Marriage
- Same-Sex Marriage
- Reproductive Technologies
Silence can no longer be an option. If we’re not teaching our children how to understand tough moral issues, then the world will. Read Made This Way and learn how to give your kids a firm foundation on which to build a life of moral clarity and happiness.
Made This Way is an excellent resource for all parents who wish to introduce their children to the beauty of the Church’s moral teaching concerning human sexuality. In a practical way it allows the adults themselves to become more acquainted with the rich natural law tradition thus enabling it to be shared with a new generation. + Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments
We love this book! It’s practical, easy-to-read, and well researched. It’s great not just for parents, but for anyone who wants to defend what the Church teaches about God’s plan for marriage and the gift of our sexuality. -Matt and Cameron Fradd
Made This Way shares the common inheritance of natural law and the supernatural wisdom of the Church on the most fundamental and controversial issues tearing us and our families apart: from abortion to divorce to an assortment of novel and flawed views about human sexuality that make the headlines every day. Made This Way will arm you with intelligent, loving, and practical ways to inoculate or heal your young children and teens, and to joyfully share with others the beautiful way God has made us. -Kevin Vost, Psy.D., psychologist, author of How to Think Like Aquinas
Down to earth, informed, and ordered to the nature of the child in different stages of life, Made This Way is a ready aid to parents—both for their own reference on the truth of difficult moral subjects and for the confidence it gives them to know what to say to their kids and what not to say. Leila Miller and Trent Horn offer parents exactly what they need to guide their family with honesty and yes, the delicacy approptiate to the subject matter, in a morally treacherous world. Fathers and mothers, read this book!

Excellent Resource for Families!
I am a DRE, and I make copies of this book available to every family in our programs. It is the best handbook I have found for understanding difficult moral topics and presenting them to young children and teenagers.
Made this way
This may be the best book to help parents teach children young and teens, how to live their life as a catholic. I gave these to my children and am giving to other couples with kids.
Book Made This Way
Made This Way explains controversial topics in a simple way. From the teachings of the Catholic faith. Wish I had learned it years ago.
This book faces the challenges of sharing our faith in current times head on. I am buying this for all our Religious Education teachers.
Among the best!
This was so helpful to me with all my questions. Leila and Trent know church teaching and know kids!
Very good detailed information on how to talk to kids about current issues.
1. I had a hard time understanding Chapter about natural law. 2. It would be interesting if you develop a "study" format to follow with questions and answers as a "Bible study" subject, maybe work with Jeff Cavins-Ascension Press?
This is a must for all who have responsibility to guide a little one or teenager. I've ordered several boxes of this book and circulating around our parish. It is being well-received.
"Made This Way" is a sight for weary and wary eyes! My eyeballs found that "Made This Way" reads easy tackling difficult moral topics. Relevant. Superbly written. Understandable."Made This Way" makes perfect sense to everyone who values the truth
Thanks be to God for "Made This Way" Our Lady Undoer of Knots, untie society from the tracks of moral depravity and corruption! Our Lady of Good Success, triumph and reign!
Love this book and have been sharing it with friends and family. Grateful to have a very applicable book for our times and a strong tool to help talk about these subjects in a loving way based in truth.
