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.

Feast Day Fun: St Monica, Patron Saint of Moms!

{August27} Feast Day Fun: St Monica!

St Monica is remembered as having a stressful life, between her ill-tempered husband and rebellious son! Through persistent prayer, sacrifice, patience and gentleness, St Monica’s husband converted before he died. Her rebellious son Augustine was also converted and became a bishop and saint and is recognized as a Doctor of the Church. With patience, gentleness and persistence, St Monica reminds us to pray for others, even when they are difficult to get along with …and resistant to changing their ways! She offers us hope in our prayer for those who stray from Jesus.
