Novena to St. Therese

St. Therese Novena 2012
Starting on Saturday, I am joining more than 24,000 Catholics to pray a St. Therese Novena!
I’m actually trying to help this online prayer community ( to get 35,000 people praying this novena for St. Therese.
A lot of people out there love St. Therese, so help me get this novena to them!
You can sign up for handy email reminders to get the the novena prayers here:
After you sign up, maybe you can help spread the word as well. God’s Mercy is abundant and overflowing, let’s share it!

Thanks to Jessica over at Shower of Roses to posting about this earlier, so I can now share it with you :)

Catechism Cube, a review

We recently were given the opportunity to review the Catechism Cube by Monica at Arma Dei.  This is a printable craft that will help your children learn the basics of the Catechism. When printing this craft you have 2 choices, printing it on colored cardstock, in which case it is half way done and ready to play. Or printing it on white cardstock (or regular paper as we did) and coloring the pages before putting the cubes together. This option gave each child a opportunity to review at least some of the pages before we played.
Over all, the catechism cube was super easy to put together, I chose to glue the edges, you could staple them if you wanted to play with it right away, and it still was ready to play with after lunch. I would recommend this craft for any ages, my kids are 11-14years old, younger children could have the themes read to them by a parent, teacher or older sibling. This would be great for a CCD class, homeschool or just a fun get together with friends. My kids had fun color the pictures and seeing who knew what when they played with this craft, and have asked to play each day since we made it. I can see us getting a lot of use out of this!

 Head over to Arma Dei for a give away, there are 10 crafts to choose from and Monica will choose 4 winners. This give away will only be open until next Friday, so hurry over!!
