Listing more books for my mom…

by | Aug 5, 2016 | Book Sale | 0 comments

My mom has been asking all summer if I was going to host another book sale this year. A couple of my sisters, the twins, have been helping her clean out her attic this summer. The other night JoAnn dropped off a few books for me to sort through and list for sale….


The majority of these books are old, have been used by many children, stored in boxes in an attic, and are not in the best shape. I’ve priced them accordingly. If there is anything you are interested in for your family or have any additional questions, please leave a comment listing the books you would like, along with your email address. (The email address box is now part of the comment form here at Shower of Roses and it won’t be displayed publicly.) I will send you a private email with your total, including shipping, along with payment information.

The books in this post will be shipped directly from my mom, Josephine. Paypal payment is preferred, though contact me privately if this isn’t an option. Out of consideration for myself and anyone else who might like to purchase books from this post, please only request items that you intend to purchase and are able to submit payment for promptly, unless other arrangements have been made. If multiple visitors request the same book it will be sold to the first request. Comments are moderated, but I will do my best to approve them as quickly as possible.

Shipping will be a flat rate of $5.00 for 1-3 items and $7.00 for 4+ items, to cover the cost of packaging and media rate postage in the U.S.

The following Baltimore Catechisms are old and in awful shape. Perhaps someone still has a use for them though? “Cure of Ars” (written across the top of some of these books) was the small school that my Grandparents (my Dad’s parents) started with a few other families when my Dad was growing up. My Grandma JoAnn was always so supportive of homeschooling! If you can use any of these they are free with postage paid:

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.
