We, Jose Luis and Carol Ivette Granados, are starting A.R.T. Domine (a Catholic Family Institute) after many years of trials. We where both missionaries for about 8-10 years before we meet and got married.
We have been through for better and worse (health, job...) Now, we see the Blessing of all of it as it has brought us to start our own home business, to homeschool, to be much more closer as a family and putting prayer as the center of our marriage and family, to truly put all our Hope in the Lord.
Through the mercy of God, some families came to our rescue and helped us out. With out them we will not be here. It is amazing what a family can do for another family. One major thing we have learned in our 13 years of marriage is to continue with God's plan as families helping families and this should be a must within our ministry. Just as the early Christians were known by their charity.
In our Missionary years, we were giving so much by God (it just can't be transmitted in words). We have also seen and experienced how the world, culture and the enemy is attacking the family... the need to form and help families.
Isn’t awkward?: How many years do we take to have our BA or any education degrees? How much do we worry about our kids having a good education so they can go to a great college and get a good job, to be "successful"...? but how many years do we take preparing ourselves to become a successful Father or Mother or in forming our family to the level God expects from us? definitely, it not the same.
Please look at our website . There is still lots of work to be done on the webpage... it is not finished yet. Our goal is to make it non-profit (this has a cost), to reach as many families as possible giving the great opportunity to see the workshops,conferences.... online, blogs, clubs,podcast.... we are working on the family conferences/ workshops, clubs, the first family event, marketing, no-profit application...scholarships...but we can't do it by ourselves we need help please.
At this moment we need about $8500 dollars in order to continue and launch it asap with a family event. We already started with baby steps with the summer camps and the Characters boys clubs.
How you can help us:
1) Please pray for this Ministry (we are specially doing the Novena of Our Lady of Good Remedy)
2) Please support our fundraising activities (you can see it on the website)
3) Please Donate through here any amount helps ($1.00, $5.00, $10.00 or more please)
4) Please share this campaign and our website... Pass it on!
We truly appreciate it and we are sure many families will benefit from it.
United in Christ and Mary
