Recycling Votive Candles

Do you have a few too many tired/well-used/burnt votive candles lying around the house? We did…and we decided to try recycling votive candles! We gave them new life with leftover wax and stubby candles…along with our favorite watercolored Kelly Saints from this craft kit. After having just released our new Lock Screen Prayer Prompts, I think I might need to recycle a couple more votives and adhere these images with Kelly Saints and Prayer Prompts: which is your favorite here?

Teach Me to Love My Littleness

I’ve found a new inexhaustible source of prompts to remind me to pray. And they’re all in-house. I don’t even need to look as far as the next person for pet peeves or sacrifices. Those pesky feelings of anger, resentment, pride and envy well up while I’m busy trying to get things done.
The near-occasion-of-sin translates into a real-life mad mom moment that just may or may not end well.
The incessant voice of frustration or negativity…confirms that the struggle is real. And maybe, the prevalence, the recurring nature of the struggle…can be used for good.
