Last Chance for the Catholic Mom Bundle!

The offer expires at midnight tonight!

Have you taken any time to check out this year’s Catholic Mom Bundle Advent 2019? It took me until this afternoon to finally print out some of the gems in this year’s bundle!

  • The Catholic All Year Printable Advent and Christmas includes simple printable resources to help you have a fun and meaningful Advent and Christmas season.

I printed out the medallions for the Count Up to Christmas, 2 pages per sheet so that they are a little smaller and will fit my own fridge calendar. I haven’t decided if I will punch them out into stickers, add magnets, cut them out in squares (might be easier, because there are a lot of them) and/or laminate them all and use them next year!

New Saint Sacrament & Season Stamps

So, I’ve been adding a whole lot of Catholic Stamps over the last few years to my Prayer Impressions Journal Stamp Shoppe and I just counted them today.

I have 145 Saint, Journal, Consecration, Prayer…and now Sacrament and Season Stamps!

They are so fun to design and I’m finding all kinds of uses for them…from Prayer Journals, Bullet Journals, Calendars and Planners to Catholic Passport Badges, Snail Mail embellishments, lunch notes, sticky notes and Bible Journaling!

A Prayer Dispositions Workshop

So we’ve got a wonderful Women’s Ministry at our Parish. We only meet once a month from September to May and each meeting has a special theme. We have an Advent Wreath-making night, a Soup and Small Talk night, a Catholic Trivia night and a Praise and Worship night and a number of meetings with specially chosen guest speakers…and we pretty much always have snacks and wine. It’s a wonderful group of ladies and it has been a privilege to grow in our friendship and spiritual lives together, talking about Faith and prayer and supporting one another, well beyond the once-a-month meeting.
