Season of the Liturgical Calendar: Advent!

The Advent Calendar

The Advent Calendar is a great way to countdown the days until Christmas. You’ll find lots of chocolate covered ones in the stores now, but you can make your own and fill it with dollarstore Nativity figures, holy medals, Saint pegs, Super Saints, printable Advent Quest challenges and of course your favorite treats or chocolates. There are so many ways to make an Advent Calendar (including this one we made years ago) and we found 35 [Awesome} DIY Advent Calendars here.

Be Yourself! A Journal for Catholic Girls: {Book Review}

I was intrigued about this book Be Yourself: A Journal for Catholic Girls* and thought that it would be just the right thing for 11 year old Bridget. I was right!

Journals and All about Me type books have been pretty popular with my daughters…especially during the tween years! While my older girls still journal, this one is perfect to launch Bridget into thoughtful journaling…and prayer journaling. I just love that this is a Catholic Journal featuring female saints among the prompts and activities.
