  1. Grace in my Heart

    Very cute!

    I've been a lurker for a while and just had to let you know that I'm in awe of your organization and all your fun projects. You are inspiring me to homeschool. 🙂

    Many blessings to your beautiful family!

  2. Megan

    What ages do you suggest boys start learning how to use a rifle? My husband and I debate on the age.

  3. Jessica Gordon

    Lol, I don't want to get in the middle of a debate between you and your husband! 🙂

    For our boys, I've left that decision up to my husband. Our boys are currently 8 & 9, and it has just been in this past year that my husband has started teaching them to shoot a bb gun, with complete supervision.

  4. The Wades

    I liked your comment about not wanting to get in the middle of that argument. My husband started our boys a little earlier, but we do have a family cattle ranch. It's a part of the culture out there. Your boys look so cute with their weapons.

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.
