Angel of God, My Guardian Dear…

I love you, good angel, 
My guardian dear.
I know that I’ll always 
Be safe while you’re near.

Enjoying his new colored pencils… 
… while coloring this beautiful Guardian Angel Coloring Page

Stay with me, angel, 
Through daytime and night. 
Help me especially to 
Do what is right. 

Illustrating an Altar from A Catholic How-to-Draw For Ages 3-Up
… with Guardian Angels on each side.  

And at last, my dear angel, 
When this life is o’er.
Just set me down safely
At heaven’s gold door. 

I hope you all had a very lovely and blessed feast of the Holy Guardian Angels!
 (…which also happens to be our 14th Wedding Anniversary!)

“When tempted, invoke your Angel. He is more eager to help you than you are to be helped! Ignore the devil and do not be afraid of him: He trembles and flees at the sight of your Guardian Angel.”
~St. John Bosco

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! I would love to be entered in the giveaway! We LOVE the Catholic Treasure Box Books and I've been meaning to replace book one ever since my youngest got ahold of it with a crayon. Angel in the Waters looks like a precious book too. Thanks for offering all the giveaways!

    I took a look at "Little Saints Preschool: Color/ Guardian Angels" back in 10/2011 and can't wait to try those adorable flower eggs!

    Happy anniversary! And thank you so much for all your giveaways and craft ideas!
    I totally nabbed your idea and made those angels you did last year with the hands and foot for the feast day yesterday.
    Oh and I'd love to win either of those books. Who wouldn't love to add to their children's book library?

  46. Anyclean

    I felt so happy reading through your post mainly because of the lovely kids. They have made lovely drawings and all the thing you do are amazing. I wish you best of luck in everything you do.

    Jessica, thank you for hosting a give away. I have found wonderful treasures on your blog to build our home library. I would love to add one of these to our home. May God Bless you for your generosity. Heather Wilson


    we have long wished for a catholic children's treasure box book. thanks for entering us!

  58. Robina

    Do you know anywhere else than amazon to get that Catholic Drawing book? I want to get it so bad for my kiddos but it's $59+ at amazon. bummer. cute feast day.

  59. Jessica Gordon

    Check Cathswap. I think that might be where I purchased my copy years ago. It was made by Sara Johnson (of CHC) so you could contact CHC and ask them directly. I know they offer A Catholic How-to-Draw E-Book by a different author, but the same idea. I hope that helps!

  60. Lindsay K

    These are some great books! Thanks!

  61. Krista

    Just read "Angel in the Waters" today for pro-life march in Washington and all the pro-life events today – January 22, 2014! What an amazing book and I'm so glad to have it! Will do a little something from Catholic Mosaic, too! A great little "unit" for science/health, religion, handwriting, literature….!

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.
