    How wonderful – a great bonding experience and example for your two young men. God is so Good!

    The pictures of "Uncle Father" on the hike reminded me of a friend's brother. He's a Capuchin friar and missionary to the Pima Indians in Mexico. Hiking from village to village under the hot Sonoral Desert sun with a large brimmed hat and in his friar's habit.

    It's pretty awesome for your family to be personl witnesses to men like your brother in law.

    If you're interested, and have the time ;-), perhaps you'd like to read about Fr. David. He and his humble parish would be grateful for your prayers. They face many struggles and attacks, as you will read.


    God bless!

    I am praying for vocations to the priesthood and religious life for your children. There has to be at least one!

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.
