My New Divine Mercy Advent Series for Toddlers!

*This is a Divine Mercy themed Advent series created especially for toddlers.  If you’re eager to share the joy of this season with your littlest ones, keep on reading!  

A Note to Parents

Welcome!  This Watching the Horizon series is designed to help you talk to your littlest ones about this important and exciting season of Advent.  It is designed to help you instill within their little hearts a sense of wonder and reverence.  As you know, toddlers like to wiggle and play, so you can use this series as a tool to start a conversation with them.  It’s okay if you don’t get through each reflection.  I’m posting the first prompt ahead of Advent so you can have time to decide if and how you’d like to incorporate this into your days.

Building Up Our Church – St. Joseph College Seminary (Your Help Needed!)

Dear Friends,

I am so excited to share that the building project for the new St. Joseph College Seminary broke ground on September 15, 2018, the Feast Day of Our Lady of Sorrows.  (Perhaps only in Catholicism do we ever put the words “feast” and “sorrows” together, but that is for a different post!)  This morning, I want to direct your attention to Charlotte, NC for a moment.

A Spiritual Toolkit to Prepare You for Anything

I recently had an opportunity to review these three titles from TAN Books.  After reading them, I realized that they go together quite nicely.  I’m calling this “a toolkit that will prepare you for anything.”  Mundane Monday?  Encroaching army?  Mary and Jesus have got your back… Continue reading “A Spiritual Toolkit to Prepare You for Anything”

Mud Baths Before Easter

Before there was a garden on our property this year, there was just a big patch of soil.  Rather than till and water and prepare the soil by ourselves (okay I was like 8 months pregnant – let’s not lie – my husband was doing most of the gardening at this point), we enlisted the help of our three small children.

Happy Easter & A Book Review!

Happy Easter everyone!  So I know I’ve been all about reviewing books lately, and there’s a reason for that… I’ll share more about that at some point here with you!  Our family is now caring for 8 baby chicks as we continue our homestead plans and await the birth of our 4th child!  So there’s lots of exciting activity going on here at the Mason home.

The Case for Catholicism: Answers to Classic and Contemporary Protestant Objections

To call this book comprehensive would be an understatement.  Right out of the gate in The Case for Catholicism, Trent Horn begins a clear, concise, and extremely thorough explanation of our Faith.  The book truly delivers on its promise to provide us with answers to Protestant objections.

A Devotional to Lead You to Jesus in the Eucharist

The Catholic Church is blessed to hold many gems of literature, sprinkled throughout the ages by holy men and women seeking to draw souls closer to God.  Sometimes these gems remain hidden for decades or centuries.  But today, I am excited to be a part of unveiling this gem of a devotional for the world.
