A “divine” way to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday

Jessica from Shower of Roses shared a delicious sounding way to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday today. I’m always behind with the novena and everything leading up to this very special day, so I appreciate it when I can see a simple way to get our children’s attention and incorporate the meaning and history of Divine Mercy Sunday. Here is a link to her post on her website. Always a great resource!

Small Budget Christmas – A post from Mama Needs Coffee

This is a nicely written post on Catholic News Agency today, by Jenny of Mama Needs Coffee, titled “Silver Linings of a Small Budget Christmas“. She makes some very good points that are good to keep in mind no matter what our budgets allow or don’t allow. Merry Christmas!

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…
