Announcing the Winner…

by | Jan 18, 2013 | Giveaway | 10 comments

It took me longer than I thought it would to sort though all the comments and make entry slips for the giveaway! I think next time I will need to go back to numbered comments and a random number generator to make it a little easier… Nevertheless, it is always so much fun to hear from you all, and extra thanks to everyone who shared a favorite resource, organizational tip, or motivational quote!  I made sure that two entries were included in the giveaway for each of you!  I’m sure I will be revisiting those comments again when I need a little more inspiration.  That comment box is filled with so much great advice!

Since Rascal volunteered to help me fold all the entries I asked him if he would like to choose the winner.  After reading so many of your comments and realizing that the 2013 Saints Calendar & Daily Planner is out of stock everywhere I was really wishing I had more than one to give away… Next fall I will try and remember to post a reminder when the new 2014 Saints Calendar comes out in September, and maybe even host another giveaway.  

Congratulations to Shane Pruitt!  

Please email me at jessica(dot)showerofroses(at)gmail(dot)com with your mailing address and I will mail the Saints Calendar from the postoffice on Monday.  Thanks again to everyone who participated!  

UPDATE:  Please contact me by Wednesday, January 24th or I will need to choose another name.

    I didn't want to enter the giveaway since I already own the planner, but I want to share my best resource/organization tip. Listen to sermons downloaded off while cleaning. I am surprised you don't have a link to audiosancto on your website.

    I love Audio Sancto and listen to the sermons frequently! (Though usually when I am working on the computer or exercising, and not when cleaning the house.) I've linked to a number of them here at Shower of Roses. 🙂

    Congrats Shane! Jesus had you in mind all along!

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.
