WELCOME! Here is my not-terribly-eloquent attempt to grow closer to God via... blogging. Unfortunately for you, I'm not sure what that means either. I guess we'll find out!

I'm 30 years old, married to an IT Guy and a stay-at-home-mom to two spectacularly gorgeous children. While we attend Mass on Sunday mornings, I spend the entirety of the Eucharistic Prayer focused on making sure the baby uses her crayons on the bulletin, not the pew

Have you seen this? http://www.aholyexperience.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/TrailtotheTree1.pdf

It's sort of like a calendar & great for talking with kids although I certainly don't go into as much detail since my girls are 3 & 6. We did it last year, though, and really liked it.


I'm sorry, I just looked at it again & realized it's not a full Lent thing. For some reason it's 17 days long, including Easter. I think we just incorporated it into our Lent observance, that's why I was thinking it was for Lent.


One way we incorporated praying with our kids more was that anytime we see/hear sirens or emergency personnel we collectively say a prayer to guide them and be with those who need their services. It's usually when we're driving, but anytime we see someone in need, we say a little prayer for them. I'm so glad we started doing it too.


Our very churchy Protestant neighbor gave us a set of resurrection eggs she made at MOPS.... I thought it was a neat idea and then I completely forgot to use them with the kids.
Does going out for Friday fish fries count as something special for Lent?
