Weaving the Faith Liturgical Living Book by Catholic Icing {Review}

Finally! ONE Binder to contain all the Liturgical Living Printables, Saints Day Celebrations, Catholic Planner, Prayer Bank, Family Recipes, Sacrament, Saint and Calendar printables I have gathered over the years! I have over 50 Catholic Craft Kit Printables in the Arma Dei Shoppe
packed with the Saints, Sacraments, Catechism, Prayers, and Catholic Crafts. I have also collected a plethora of awesome resources through the Catholic Mom Bundles for the last four years. I have SO much Catholic Clipart to make this Liturgical Living Book my own and I think it will be an incredible Family Heirloom that I’d like to replicate for each child as they start their own families.

Feast Day Fun: Catholic Crafts for February

Equipping Catholic Families for February Saints Days!

This is our monthly summary of crafts and family traditions related to the Monthly Devotion, Key Feast Days and the appropriate Season of the Liturgical Calendar. As our kids get older, our activities and commitment to Catholic crafts has changed and adjusted (at least for our tween, teen, and young adult kids)!

Prompt Me to Pray through Advent and Christmas

I’ve always been a fan of living more liturgically throughout the Catholic Seasons AND I’ve got a renewed passion for developing personal prayer and those TWO things are coming together!

We’ve actually heard from some readers that this little book has changed their prayer life! I’m humbled and honored…and so excited to find others as excited as I am with this practical plan that works to develop more consistent prayer from the heart and a deeper relationship with Jesus!
