This is one of the best buried treasure stories I have ever seen. If you look deeper, it is a parable for how God LOVES to delight each of us. If you click over to the full Family Conquest, the “To Do” activity in the Wrapping It Up section brought out some fun family history for my kids.

Spiritual Nuggets for Family Discussion

Open with a prayer.
(i.e. a Glory Be, or Our Father, or Hail Mary, or ‘Jesus, Mary, Joseph, we love You! Save souls!’)

Did this man put a lot of effort and planning into his proposal?

  • Yes!

How do you think the woman felt when they unearthed hidden treasure?

  • Really excited!
  • She felt the joy of discovery.

How do you think she felt when she realized that he had buried the treasure in order to propose to her?

  • She was ecstatic and moved to tears.

What was the real treasure they found?

  • They found in each other the greatest treasure: loving and being loved in return.

What does this teach us about how God likes to pursue us?

  • God loves to excite us, delight us, and move us deeply!
  • He wants to draw us to Him by attraction, not by force.

Close with a prayer.

Feed that Fire!

The FREE Family Conquest program helps parents “Feed that Fire today… before it’s too late!”

  • What Fire? The love of God and of family.
  • Too Late? 13 is the average age a child rejects the Faith and his family in his heart! By age 22, that decision shows itself. Today, 85% of Catholic kids leave the Faith!
  • Why This Works? WATCHING together Viral YouTube videos and BONDING together through the faith Q&A’s is fun and effective. It also helps parents and kids learn God’s language of parable, so they can discern God speaking in their prayer!

DONATE HERE. Help us help families before it’s too late!
