NEW Catholic Rubber Stamps…in the Shoppe!

We’ve added a couple Catholic Stamps to the Prayer Impressions Journal Stamp Shop!

The 2″ Divine Mercy Stamp includes counting beads in the border and a prayer intentions space so that you can keep track of the 5 decades, the 10 “For the Sake of…” prayers for each decade and the 3 “Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One” prayers at the end of the five decades. This is a nice visual for journalers to incorporate the Divine Mercy Chaplet with their prayer-journaling!

Review: The Illustrated Bible for Children by Magnificat/Ignatius Press

I am so excited to review this NEW Illustrated Bible for Children by the Magnificat division of Ignatius Press. It’s beautifully illustrated with relatively simple and very sweet illustrations in a comic book format for kids 7 years old and up. The font is a nice size with a combination of CAPS for narration and upper and lower case for dialogue. The people are smiley cartoon (my categorization) in gentle and friendly settings, color and formatting.

My Instagram Account was Kidnapped, but here’s an EASTER Giveaway!

One week ago, my Instagram account was disabled, for some mysterious violation that I don’t think exists. I have repeatedly appealed this violation every day to no avail. I really appreciated my Instagram account, not only as kind of family diary of family trips, and special occasions celebrated with our family but also as an awesome visual venue to get the word out on the Catholic books, craft kits, quizzing cards and stamps I have created through my Catholic Business Arma Dei.
