    How do you make the "paint" for your sugar cookies? This looks like a fun project for my little ones. 🙂

    It was the first time we've ever "Painted" Cookies and it really WAS a lot of fun. My children loved it!

    I am sure there are a number of ways to make the paint, but I just used Powdered Sugar mixed with a little bit of milk and various food coloring. It worked great!

    Looks so much easier than just using the powdered sugar icing. Easier for the kids to get in on the fun too! Thanks for the 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.
