So, 5 year old Adam saw the pieces I've received in the mail to make our first ever Play Mass kit. He asks me everyday if it's finished. When I told him that I also needed to make some priest vestments...he dragged my sewing machine up for me, from the basement. It took 2 hands...and a little dragging, but the sewing machine still works. =)
Last week, Adam (with his sister/new altar server Bridget assisting) tried to celebrate Mass in our family room.
They clearly couldn't wait for me Read more [...]

I'm so excited about this book! I received my ebook before Christmas and what perfect timing! It's an entertaining read...and also an uncomfortable one at times, but as I eagerly read on...a necessary one.
It's so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing, wanting the best for your kids and wanting them to have every advantage. But our kids aren't the only ones prone to entitlement, from spending for so-called necessities...rewarding and consoling ourselves through purchases, and even Read more [...]
The Catholic Conference 4 Moms is an online conference for this coming Year of Mercy, particularly catered to moms. It is set up so that Moms' groups or parishes can use the presentations to put together their own simple conference/retreat/mom’s day out. So far, we have about 25 parishes all over the US hosting the conference. But, starting January 20, we are opening it up for individual moms to attend at their own convenience in their own homes throughout the rest of Lent.

When I first saw the logo for the Holy Year of Mercy, I have to admit it kind of bugged me. Having stared at it on the wall of the Sanctuary of our Church for a couple weeks now, I've been reflecting on it more and more.
Over the last year and a half, we've been creating craft kits and quizzing cards developed from the sketches of our now 17 year old daughter Kelly and we just can't hide our love for these inviting, adorable yet-kind-of-sophisticated Saints drawings featured in our 54 card Read more [...]
From time to time, I receive Catholic products and books in exchange for my honest review. From time to time, I will write about our family's innovative way of using a particular product or I will include a short quote from the book to help convey how it equips Catholic families.
I offer the direct links to the sponsoring company (no commission) but sometimes offer the Amazon affiliate link discreetly for the convenience of my subscribers.
If you click on the Amazon Affiliate links and purchase something, I may receive a small commission...but this does not raise the price of your purchase. These linked products are books or items I either have or wish that I had, but the opinions are my own. Thanks for your support!
