~ Our 2011 Saintly Symbols :: Patron Saints ~

The children all decided to carve a symbol associated with their patron saints this year!

“The Sons of Thunder Saint-O-Lanterns!”

Crown with Heart

St. Clare’s Monstrance

St. Michael’s Flaming Sword

* Note:  It is much easier to carve a Rose on a large pumpkin…

If you carve a “Saint-O-Lantern” this year, be sure to share pictures at

    So beautiful!! We celebrated All Hallow's Eve instead of Halloween for the first time this year 🙂 (although our costumes weren't technically of Saints…) BUT, it was wonderful to join in the holiday with so much more meaning behind it. Thanks as always for your inspiration 🙂

    Wow! These are amazing! The sword is really a flaming sword!

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.
