    So many great ideas! Thanks. I was looking for May liturgical celebration ideas aside from a May crowning. Do you usually celebrate Blessed Imelda's feast day? My daughter will receive next spring but has gotten very attached to Blessed Imelda. Thinking perhaps we need to celebrate her feast day as a kick off toward First Holy Communion preparation. Thanks, Jessica for all your great ideas. Hope everyone is well!

    The only thing we have done in the past is read a short story about her life on her feast day. I think celebrating her feast is the perfect way to kick off First Holy Communion preparation!! Great idea!

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.
