Rose Cupcakes for St. Thérèse

The Little Flower of Jesus by Sister Julita

Two boxes of cake mix = cupcakes to celebrate three back-to-back feast days for our family of nine with just a few leftover! I baked the white cupcakes yesterday, while baking the face for St. Jerome’s lion, and decorated them this afternoon with cream cheese frosting, white roses from Wilton, and my attempt at some ribbon roses and leaves with the extra frosting… They are far from perfect but still turned out pretty!


“You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them.” ~ St. Thérèse

    Great job on the cupcake roses! Did you make the crocheted St. Thérèse? Or was it from an Etsy site? Love your blog!

    Years later, and I am still blown away with all you do! And, with such love! I have not been very good about commenting on any of my favorite blogs lately, but I still enjoy visiting and read nearly all of your posts. And, your blog is one of the first resources that I go to when I am looking for a creative idea to "borrow"! 🙂 Peace. +JMJ+

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.
