    Jessica–These are a St. Nicholaus tradition around here. I never know if I’ll get to the baking so these are always ready and waiting for tea time. This year I found beautiful 3D Lindt chocolate Santas that were dressed very European style, which made lovely St. Nick’s….hope your family enjoys.

    I love it! I just saw these at the grocery store yesterday. Now I wish I had bought them 🙁

    Squix ~ Thanks 🙂

    Colleen ~ Your St. Nick's sound awesome!! I am sure this will become one of our traditions as well.. It was so easy and they turn out so cute!

    Regan & Ruth ~ Had I not seen the link at the St. Nicholas Center yesterday, I would have never bought the Santa candy either. Now we know 🙂

    He is the cutest! I will be making these–celebrating a bit late…

    Jessica , What a beautiful person you are. I think of you when I think of St. Therese the Little Flower. Today, I will offer up Mass for you and your family.

    I have been following you for a few years now and have never took the time to post. The last few years have been filled with constant transition. I always think things are more complex when it comes to the computer, but I am finding the opposite as God helps me. So posting is not that complex after all:)
    Jessica, you have helped me more than you know. Your path has greatly blessed us and has allowed me to continue what God has called me to do.
    Losing pretty much everything financially, by God's hand, I believe,and through these last few years you have kept me in so many ways from throwing in the towel.
    When we did not have enough money for new books, you helped me figure out ways to continue. Thank you so much for posting what you do. Your work has assisted me when I had to return to work. When we rented a house that had cockroaches crawling all over the place I seeked solace in your website. As God has allowed me to die to self and humble I believe He allowed me things such as your website as comfort and that there is HOPE.You are a joy to me and so is your family.
    Thank you so dearly,

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.
