My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

My 13-year-old daughter, Rosie, paints little peg saints all year long, usually on their feast days, but occasionally when she reads about one that intrigues her, or when I tell her I would like a peg-statue of one saint in particular.

Since she's been doing this for a number of years now, I have quite a lot of these little peg saints, and we put them all on display for the great feast day of All Saints!

Happy all saints day.

Happy All Saints Day!


I also use cards from a collection called Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives. to display underneath my clear plastic tablecloth. Old holy cards or other pictures you can find and save also work very well.

I put them on the table cloth and cover them with a plastic covering, that way the kids can talk about them during meals. I also put up some of the children's other holiday art including pumpkins and spiders!

All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day and All Souls Day are a wonderful Christian time of the year. With a little thought and creativity it can make wonderful memories for families and provide our children with more education about their Catholic faith and Christian heritage as well as deepening their faith.
