Great Holy Week Resources

Wow, I was just reminded this morning about Family in Feast and Feria – a great website for solid Catholic resources. Today they posted a set of resources for Holy Week, including prayers, crafts, reflections, activities and planning for the week and Easter. I’m excited to share this with you!

Easter Family Devotions from Little House Studio

I just downloaded this really nice Easter resource for our family from Little House Studio. She is offering this free! I really like the idea of having an Easter Tree, like a Jesse Tree. And, considering I just took the Valentine Day ornaments off our Jesse tree (which wasn’t too long after I took the partial Jesse tree ornaments off of it…), I now have a bare branch in our dining room, waiting for some sweet Easter ornaments to adorn it. I’m looking forward to using these this Easter season! Click here and enjoy!

Seasonal Planner from Cajun Cottage

Today must be a “blessed” day (instead of it being my “lucky” day) because I’m finding some really awesome resources! Cajun Cottage publishes this sweet seasonal planner, which I think would be really beneficial for me. Unfortunately, she is all sold out of the spring planner, but I’m going to make sure I check in time enough to be able to get the summer version! Check out Cajun Cottage’s website here:

Beginning each homeshooling day with faith…

I just ran across this blog and post by School of Immaculata. It’s a beautiful website with lots of information I’m looking forward to reading myself! I thought I would share the post and link with you here.

Why is faith the first subject every day?

Fear of the Lord… an explanation of what that means

I love reading what Fr. Z (Fr. John Zuhlsdorf) writes. He is a very knowledgeable, solid, orthodox, Catholic priest. And, he has a good sense of humor too. He just posted something on his blog that I was just discussing with our young children – the Gift of the Fear of the Lord. I think he does a really great job explaining what exactly that fear is all about…

Preparing for Lent…Things to consider

I love reading posts from Catholic All Year. She has some very practical suggestions for living out our Catholic faith in a family.

This is a great post about what to do or not do during Lent… I’m taking notes!

Well, it’s Candlemas. Time to take down the last of the Christmas decorations . . . and panic because IT’S ALMOST LENT!

Or don’t. Because I’m here to help with my most popular post of all time:
