    My favorite is One Nation Under God. Great idea! They were all little troopers for sticking their hands right into the gooey sticky insides of the pumpkins. =)

    Rascal will be excited to hear that, especially since they didn't get to share their pumpkins with all their friends this year.

    His was my favorite too! =)

    These are GREAT! I love the unborn baby, but One Nation Under God was unique. I can't believe Captain came up with the scared side to represent the scourging! That was such a great idea.

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.
