Spring Books for Kids
Nurturing Little Saints
by NurturingLittleSaints
2M ago
I love to bring out seasonal books for my kids. They come out during liturgical seasons, but they also come out during the physical seasons of the year, too. I will admit that Spring and Fall are the easiest seasons for me to remember to bring them out at the right time because of the corresponding liturgical season changes of Easter and preparing for Advent. The books that I have linked in this article are some of my kids favorite books. They make me read them over and over again. For reference, I have five children, ages 8 years to 8 months and there are books for each of them. This post co ..read more

Pregnancy After Miscarriage

Pregnancy after a miscarriage can be a really confusing time. On the one hand, you’re looking forward to this new little life within you, on the other hand you’re terrified to lose it like the last one. On the third hand you are still mourning your previous loss (because you always will) and on the fourth hand… See, confusing… This post contains affiliate links, which means I make a small commission at no extra cost to you.

Stations of the Cross with Kids
Nurturing Little Saints
by NurturingLittleSaints
2M ago
Stations of the Cross is such a beautiful expression of God’s love for us. Although it can be said and followed all year round we try to say it weekly during Lent. Our parish has Stations of the Cross every Friday and typically that is the day we say it, but with 5 children all under the age of 8 we find going to the chapel at our parish difficult. We have, therefore, come up with a simple interactive way of bringing stations to our home and to our children.

Easter Books for Kids and Toddlers
Nurturing Little Saints
by NurturingLittleSaints
2M ago
My favorite part of Easter baskets (other than the candy, of course) is getting my kids good wholesome books to add to our Library. I like it to be a wide variety of Christ-centered, faith-based, and seasonal books as well. Some of them we bring out when Lent starts to help my children understand what Lent is, what it leads to, and what makes Easter so important. Another group of them we bring out on Easter Sunday. Finally, we give each child one or two in their baskets. This post contains affiliate links, which means I make a small commission at no extra cost to you. Get my full disclosure&nb ..read more

I can’t tell you or anyone how to heal after miscarriage, but I can tell you what has helped me. I lost my baby to miscarriage 18 months ago. The first few months were so incredibly difficult and although every day is still hard I have found a few ways to incorporate my little Frankie into my daily life. I have another article about my loss journey regarding remembering your little one after miscarriage. Some of the ways that have helped me heal from my loss are also ways that I remember my little Frankie, for me, they are sympatico. Remembering Frankie, helps to heal the wound of his absence ..read more

Photo by RDNE Stock Project Breastfeeding Essentials- From an Experienced Breastfeeding Mom of 5  You read that title correctly. I have five children and I have breastfed all of them. Each child and each experience were vastly different from the other.   They were all exclusively breastfed for different amounts of time too. My first nursed for 6 months, my second nursed for 9 months, my third only nursed for 3weeks before I pumped for 9 months, my third nursed for 15 months, and I am currently 3 months into nursing my fifth.  Through all of these experiences I have found the tri ..read more

Celebrating St. Andrew’s Feast Day

9M ago
Going big on St. Andrew’s Feast Day has been very important to me over the past few years. The proximity to the start of Advent really helps me get into the spirit of the season. I enjoy getting everything together a few days in advance so that I am totally prepared.   For those who do not know, St. Andrew was the brother of St. Peter, both of whom were fishermen before our Lord called them to be disciples. They left behind all that they knew to follow the strange and wonderful ways of Christ. We can learn some really profound lessons in that. We aren’t all called to be priests, religiou ..read more

The Best Catholic Mom Podcasts

I became a huge podcast junky starting in the winter of 2020 when I was super pregnant with my 4th baby and wanted to watch less TV, but still have some sort of entertainment. It was during Lent that I was determined to find good Catholic podcasts that would help me become a better SAHM. I had started staying home only 5 months prior and was not good in the domestic arts.  The first podcast I found was the best podcast to start me on my enriching journey to thriving in Catholic motherhood and that is why it is first on my list.  1. The Modern Lady Podcast  I have religiously lis ..read more

Easter Basket Ideas for Children Under 8

by NurturingLittleSaints
9M ago
I love finding the perfect items for my kids’ Easter baskets. This year I am hoping to come up with some really practical, fun, Faith-filled, and preferably consumable items. In the past I have loaded up on Dollar Tree toys and candy that last a couple of days, break, or add to the clutter in my home. This was necessary for us in recent years when the budget was very tight. I hope to be a little more intentional about the items we get for the kids that will last a long time or be consumed and leave less of an imprint on my home and the environment.  This post contains affiliate links, wh ..read more
