Just Enough Info…or We’re Holy-Rollin’ Here

Linking up again with Sweeping Up Joy, for a quick post squeezed in during a magical moment when ALL of the girls are sleeping!

1.What are your favorite devotions?

I have been so blessed by Marian consecration according to St. Louis de Montfort, especially the new and updated version in “33 Days to Morning Glory.”

I also love the Rosary, have because a faithful prayer of Morning and Evening Prayer (Liturgy of the Hours) and do the monthly novenas with Pray More Novenas.  

2.Have any of your prayers been answered? Do you have any prayers that you are glad weren’t answered the way you’d hoped?

After reading Alicia’s post, I too realized how quickly I forget answered prayers. Healthy deliveries of three out of our four daughters, slow but noticeable improvements in relationships, homes, jobs. 

Novenas to St. Joseph have been powerful for us. One year, we prayed for the NFP class we were teaching and 10 couples signed up. This spring, an unexpected, possible answer to prayers for my husband’s job came during a St. Joseph novena. 

Another prayer that was noticeably answered was when I asked God for friends, and after two years in our town, I finally made some great Catholic friends. 

The most memorable prayer I’m glad wasn’t answered the way I hoped was praying for all the dating relationships that didn’t work out, before I met my wonderful husband. 

3. How do you pray with your kids?

Mass. I’ve been happily amazed how much they pick up from going to church a couple times a week. Also prayers before meals and before bed. We’re doing prayers during school time now too. One day, I like to say family Rosary!

  1. I really enjoyed the 33 Days to Morning Glory! It was a lot more user-friendly than the old school True Devotion consecration for me as a busy mom. My husband prefers the original, though.

    I’d love to try the 33 Days to Merciful Love retreat (for the Year of Mercy!!!), but it’s hard for me to buy books for myself. Is that silly to admit?

    Thanks for linking up again, I’ve enjoyed learning a little more about your corner of the world. 🙂

  2. Thanks for joining in with us for JEI. Bringing little children to mass is such a special experience. Especially when they find things that interest them. I love it when my daughter decides to sing along.
