The contractor we hired earlier this week, after months of trying to come up with a plan and bid that fits our budget, is HERE and just started working!

I just had to tell someone, or I might be tempted to join our children as they run from room to room peeking out all the windows!  ðŸ˜‰  It’s so exciting!

    Jessica, I would love your opinion on my daybook post from May 11. We are making a move to another state and beginning the house hunting process after two years in a rental. I would love to know what things you, as a homeschooling mother of many small children, would consider necessities for a home, and what you would love to have that maybe wouldn't be considered a necessity, but just nice. Thanks for your help! And have fun with the remodel! At least the school year is winding down!

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.
