Our First Tea-and-Craft Day!

by | Sep 5, 2007 | Catholic Mosaic, Crafts, Home Education, Mother Teresa, Saints | 0 comments

We are so excited to start our Liturgical Year Notebooks using the Catholic Mosaic program as our guide!

Today is the feast of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta and I have almost everything ready for our Tea-and-Craft time!! We are making Indian Sweet Bread for our snack, and we will be having milk or Chai tea with it! Yummy!!

We started reading Mother Teresa by Demi last night and we will finish it up during our tea, and then we will color the picture of her from Fenestra Fidei while we listen to The Gospel on Five Fingers put out by Glory Stories.

For copy work I have a list of quotes for the children to choose from, and we will add these to our Notebooks as well. If we have time we may even make a time line of her life using free note-booking pages we found online!

It is not how much we do
But how much love
We put in the doing
That makes our offering
Something beautiful for God.

— Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
