Almost 2 years ago, February 2012, our family launched Design My Rosary. Design My Rosary was developed to give individuals the opportunity to completely design their Rosary from 100s of centers, crucifixes, and Rosary beads. As our business continued to grow our families commitment to praying the family Rosary grew as well. When we started to pray the Rosary at night with our young children it seemed like a loosing battle. Sometimes the Rosary took us 40 minutes to pray and included a great deal of craziness. Then we discovered that our family could pray the Rosary much better if we listened to a recitation of the Rosary and prayed along with it. This allowed the occasional wrangling of children without stopping the family Rosary and increased our ability to successfully pray the family Rosary. We still thought that our family was missing out on the opportunity to meditate on the mysteries and learn the prayers. We also had been driven near crazy by the question, “Which bead are we on?!?”
Inspired by our experiences we set out to produce a DVD that would help our kids learn the prayers of the Rosary by displaying the words of the prayers at the beginning and end of the Rosary, give them a sacred image to help them understand and meditate on each mystery, and provide a visual guide to help them answer that persistent question, “What bead are we on?!?”
From this Pray the Rosary DVD was created. It is not a kids cartoon meant to entertain, it has very simple transitions that keep the focus on the prayers and mysteries of the Rosary. It is not geared for kids alone, but great for all those that pray the Rosary. Since the completion of this DVD our kids have been better able to focus during the Rosary and even our 3 year old can use the guide on the screen to keep her place on her Rosary.
We hope that this DVD will be as helpful for you and your family as it has been for ours!
