    Spinneretta — that is too funny! Don’t you just love this image of St. George?? Sounds like a lot of us moms are thinking along the same lines today. It’s awesome!

    Michele–we’ve been loving the stories on Homeschool Radio Shows… I think Amy (Knit Together in Love) was the first that pointed them out to us. The internet is such an amazing resource, isn’t it!

    Jamie– can’t wait to see your pictures!

    Also–everyone should hop over to Matilda’s blog. This years dragon is even cuter than last years!

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.
