Holy Saturday

Today is Holy Saturday… We started the day with TWO Easter eggs at breakfast that were filled with a piece of paper towel and a rock symbolizing Jesus being in the tomb. Originally, I planned to do a resurrection garden with a group of ladies here in IL. Due to the shelter in place, I…

Good Friday?

Today is Good Friday…✝️✝️ There were many heavy lessons today. It was… emotional. I don’t understand what is so “Good” about today… At times, I thought this was maybe not appropriate to teach a preschooler. I mean, the brutality of it all is absolutely disgusting and heartbreaking. There were moments that brought me to tears…

Holy Thursday

Today is Holy Thursday… This lesson was fun, rich, and left my heart heavy. As we are trying to feast, I can’t help but feel sick to my stomach for what is to come tomorrow. I feel sad because though Jesus knew something was happening soon, He was taken so many years ago for the…

Holy Wednesday

Today was Holy Wednesday or “Spy Wednesday.” It was a sad day for me to recount the moment Judas betrayed Jesus. It was a hard concept for Lucas to grasp. We counted out 30 coins and talked about how sad it would be if I decided to sell him or Mike for those 30 coins….

Holy Tuesday

Today was Holy Tuesday! ❤️ We learned about Jesus teaching his apostles after cleansing the temple. I taught Lucas how to make a bird feeder, and he took the knowledge he learned and taught Mike. It was a great way to show the story of what Jesus did so long ago in the flesh. Lucas…

Holy Monday

Day 2 of Holy Week! 🙏🕊️🌴 Today was filled with discussing what Jesus did once He got to Jerusalem. We made a craft showing Lucas what the temple was used for when Jesus arrived. We talked about how selling things would be silly to do inside church these days and what we do when at…

Palm Sunday

Today I woke up just as excited as Christmas day, because we got to teach Lucas about the first day in Holy Week! I myself learned even more this year to create the daily activities. If there’s anything I’ve learned from marrying a Catholic, Holy Week is the Superbowl for Catholics.🤣 Palm Sunday was filled…

I Did a Thing!

Well, God’s timing is the perfect timing… Am I right? So many things God has been revealing to me while leading up to this post. Seriously. When we moved to the Midwest, I just thought we’d be building my dream home while Mike worked on his mission of “feeding the world.” Um…yeah, no. This whole…

Helpers

Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately. I’ve been feeling all the feels about this whole pandemic. I’ve literally been in tears the past few days worrying about all the people who might need help. Yet, I can’t find the people! Normally, I’m a worry wart. However, in these types of situations, I’m even more concerned about…

The Gathering Place

Sorry I’ve been away, but something big is coming to the Midwest…❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ More to come soon, I promise! Wish honest intentions, Krista ❤️
