    Jessica, your little ones look so sweet panting there leaves. We used your idea and made a tree of blessings as well this week. Thanks for the idea the girls just loved it.

    I love how your older boys still paint and do your crafts!! My son just doesn’t do the same things anymore.

    I love babies coloring, how cute!!

    Oh, my goodness, look how well the baby can color! Mine would be chewing on them and my two year old would be scribbling all over the page!

    Why isn’t Snuggles eating his crayons? 🙂
    Beautiful pictures of a nice, orderly project… that reminds me, my house is messy and maybe we could do a nice, orderly project if I cleaned it up a little.
    Have a great weekend!

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.
