Delicious Rose Wine in our wedding champagne glasses!

    Looks like so much fun! They all look so adorably happy in the last picture… but how can one not look happy when there is a cake in front of them?

    Nancy ~ It is a 1st Class Relic (a tiny piece of one of her bones) that was given to us by my brother-in-law! We are so blessed to have it in our possession, especially since she is a favorite saint in our home, and has been very instrumental in our lives.

    Looks like you enjoyed your celebration. My kids would love to live at your house!

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.
