A Good Mail Day

Do you subscribe to Faith & Family?  It is one of the few magazines that I actually subscribe to, and definitely a favorite.
Earlier today, after receiving an email from a friend who had just received her copy, I sent the children out to check the mail.  The Spring edition had arrived and I had them turn to page 82.   
Do those little faces look familiar?  
You should have heard all the giggles!! 
I have a feeling we will be hanging on to this edition! 
As if I didn’t keep them all already! lol!  I just wish the mailman would be a little more careful! 


  1. Teresa with lots of kids

    how neat is that 🙂 I got mine on Monday but still haven't been able to sit down with it 🙁 I'll have to make some time now 😉

    OH MY GOD!!! I got my issue a day or two ago, but hadn't had the chance to go through it yet. I can't believe they're in it. How wonderful!!!! You'll have to get a copy for each one 🙂

    I'm with you, Faith & Family is one of my favorites. Right up there with Family Foundations by CCL.

    Very cool Jessica. I just got our copy today. The ideas shared in this magazine are so worth the wait. When I see the Faith & Family title in my mailbox I truly feel happy.

    I bet the kids got a real kick out of the pictures.

    Have a wonder evening!

  4. Grace in my Heart

    I got my issue earlier today, saw your article, and was super excited for you! I bet the kids loved it! Congrats!

    I'm so glad they put your blog address too so more people can be inspired to live out their faith more fully with all your wonderful ideas! 🙂

  5. Shelly

    congrats to you Jessica! that is wonderful 🙂 how totally cool for your children to see!

  6. Tween Lit Crit

    So Glad you alerted me, Jessica! I would not have noticed. Actually, I'm waiting until Sunday to cozy up with my mag because I have to sit down with it and a cup of coffee, and no children awake… and guess what I'm not drinking during Lent? Sigh.

  7. Gina

    I haven't gotten my issue yet…Hope it comes soon because I can't wait to read it and try out the cookies.

  8. Lori

    How wonderful! God is so good to us, isn't He? I'm clicking over to order my subscription now! Blessings, Lori

  9. Nadja

    It helps to have such photogenic kids!

  10. Jessica Gordon

    Thank you everyone! I am going to have to look into seeing how to purchase a couple more copies. If any of you don't hang on to your copies indefinitely (like I do) let me know! 🙂

    Kelly ~ I have never seen Family Foundations. I am going to have to look into it!

  11. Our Catholic Family

    AW!! My subscription lapsed at the birth of our latest member. I kept reminding myself to reorder! I love your blog, you inspire me to be the best mother I can be. And, am so grateful to you. Having not been raised Catholic I had no idea how to begin raising my children. Ha, I'm still learning!! Now…on to track down a copy! 🙂

  12. Kelly

    You're more than welcome to ours. It may take a while before I can part with it though 🙂

    Family Foundations comes with a yearly membership to CCL (~$35 I think), I'm not sure if you get a subscription separate or not. Membership includes unlimited NFP chart review too (good for those unsure post-partum times :).

  13. Sarah

    I got my copy today (before I read this on your blog), and I just smiled when I got to that page. Congrats! That is very fun to be in print. I'm sure your children are just delighted =)

    You're famous! How awesome. I'm glad more people besides your blog readers can be inspired by your hard work and dedication to your children's education.

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.
