Reading on the Porch Swing


  1. Allison

    Looks like a great book….

    Seems like a wonderful spot….

    Definetely a sweet picture….

    Bet the kid behind it is great too. 😉

  2. Shelly

    Just a little FYI:
    If you google ‘Louis and Marie-Zélie Martin’ IMAGES – your blog shows up in the 3rd and 8th spot!
    Just thought you’d like to know :o)

  3. Jamie Jo

    You have a beautiful porch too!! Love those reading pictures. I can’t even count the pictures I have of Jedi reading!

    All your pictures are beautiful, That’s a great picture with that wonderful priest, you look SO, SO thin!! (Fr Casimir?)

  4. Laura The Crazy Mama

    Oh geez, I have this huge, lovely porch and NO swing. My hubs will NOT get me a swing because he’s not sure how to install it or if the trusses will hold it (or where to find them under the soffits). I would love to take porch swing pictures like these.
    It’s just so peaceful looking!

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.
