We are excited to launch “Radiant Hearts” a full-year program for families to learn Baha’i prayers, Writings, and spiritual qualities together. A lesson based on a spiritual quality will be ready for you to download before each Baha’i Feast starting Naw Ruz 2012, complete with activities including music, print-outs, and photo examples for every day of the year.
First things first…
What is Radiant Hearts?
Radiant Hearts is a program for parents to learn about and teach spiritual qualities to their young children, as well as memorize Baha’i prayers and quotations of Baha’u’llah. Its mission is to help families with children from birth to four years old incorporate learning about spiritual qualities into their daily, weekly and/or monthly routines.
The aim for the program is for families:
- To learn prayers together
- To learn quotations of Baha’u’llah together
- To learn about spiritual qualities together
- To create and use resources that will help them incorporate learning about spiritual qualities into their daily routines
- To have materials available to host a Baha’i Preschool Class and/or a Devotional, should they wish to

I love having the list to look through and pick out quickly something fun and meaningful to do with Nika. Somehow you’ve put together a very appropriate list of activities that capture my 3 and a half year old’s attention. [/testimonial][/one_half]
What does the program consist of?
Nineteen lessons for each of the 19 Baha’i months, each focused on one spiritual quality. Each lesson consists of one prayer and one quotation set to music, and using stories, songs, and simple activities suited to young children (up to one for each day of the month) helps families learn about spiritual qualities together.
How can I get the materials?
Each Baha’i month, we will release a new lesson and post a notification on the blog to direct you to the Online Lesson. There, you will be able to download the materials a few days before Feast, so that you can begin studying a new virtue with your family each Baha’i month.
