We often don't realize the impact of those lessons, those Catholic lessons, that are taught each day to our children. It is so much worth the effort! The signs of the cross, kneeling to say prayers, dipping fingers in holy water, laying fresh flowers at the statue of Our Lady, etc., etc. These are gold nuggets that will live on in your children's lives. This is building Catholic Culture!

The following two books are to help you parents with those little things.....They are story books from my new little series, "Catholic Hearth Stories". I wrote them especially for my grandchildren....and am sharing them with yours.

Catholic Hearth Stories are tales filled with traditional, old-fashioned values. They are about everyday situations in the life of a Catholic family…Tales about home, friends, fun, sacrifice, prayer, etc. These are full-color books sure to capture the heart of your children.

Each book is about 35 pages of full-color pictures that tell a lovely Catholic story. The ages they are appropriate for are approximately 4 - 12 years.

Celine's Advent: Take a walk through Advent as Celine and her family prepare for the coming of the Baby Jesus at Christmas! You will enjoy celebrating the beauty of the season with Celine as she helps her mom with the special traditions and activities that make the liturgy come alive in their home! Her "peanut gallery" consists of a mouse named Percy and some charming and delightful Christmas Angels! They are sure to capture your heart!

Joseph and the Bow Shoot: Meet Joseph, a Catholic boy who wants to enter the Parish Bow Shoot but doesn't have a bow. How does he overcome this obstacle and what lessons does he learn along the way?

Two Tea Parties and a Sacrifice: Meet Agnes, a fourteen-year-old Catholic girl, who is challenged to make a sacrifice. Will she cheerfully accept what she knows is God’s will in this situation?

Brendan, The Seafarer: It's Brendan's birthday and he is fighting pirates, steering ships and wielding swords! He learns of St. Brendan, the Navigator and the pious Christopher Columbus. Life is a nautical adventure for him! Will his daydreaming cause him trouble? What lessons does he learn?
There is a "peanut gallery" in this book....a turtle named Ollie and a seahorse named Sherman and other sea creatures that make their appearance now and again and have their own chats among themselves!

So pleased with this purchase! My 8 year old is only a few days in but loves to fill out her journal. It helps her think about who to pray for each day and helps her to remember to do all the things she tends to forget! I love it! We’ll have to get another one after she’s done with this one. ❤️

A lovely way to incorporate prayer into your everyday life. I appreciate that this helps me journal my days as well as keep track of my prayers, show my gratitude, and express my love for God more and more. A great concept that is executed with grace and beauty.

Love this!! Fun poems, reminisce of the classic Mother Goose poetry but with meaning behind the ditties! A great way to both entertain littles and inspire and educate them in their Catholic faith! My little 14 month old so far enjoys these as far as her little attention span can handle. Only thing I might change would be to add color to the pictures! But the pencil art in there is very good and I know color pictures would have to raise the price! All in all a great purchase, you will be glad you added this book to your collection and your children will be too!
