The story we read in this book about St. Patrick said he used a shamrock to explain the Trinity. I’m not sure if this story is true, but I like the idea of having another visual to help children understand the trinity.
Here’s a free 3-in-1 Shamrock Coloring page from Christian Preschool Printables that goes along with the lesson about the trinity:

Motherhood is rewarding, challenging, and sometimes just plain hard.
If we’re not careful, we can find ourselves worn out, burned out, and discouraged.
Transform Your Mind
Meditating on God’s Word can transform our minds and give us the strength we need to keep going and live abundantly.
Romans 12:2 tells us:
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
It’s so easy to fall into negative patterns of thinking, and that can really affect how we view life. If we’re thinking negative or untrue thoughts about ourselves, our families, or God, it can keep us from being joyful mothers.
Instead, we need to meditate on truth, goodness, and beauty.
As Philippians 4:8 says:
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
St. Patrick’s Day crafts, recipes, and book ideas!
Our family has quite a bit of Irish in our background, so we enjoy celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in March. Besides, March seems like the perfect time to celebrate all things green!
At the beginning of the month, we read a few of our favorite books about St. Patrick’s Day and Ireland. We almost always plan to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day (just for fun), and we also plan a special meal and dessert.

I’ve gathered up a few of the cutest St. Patrick’s Day crafts. We’ll probably make several of them this year.

How to install a beadboard kitchen backsplash yourself and save money! Our DIY beadboard backsplash tutorial.
When we moved into our current home over seven years ago, the kitchen was painted a brick red. At the time, I was into a rustic, country look, and I was thrilled with our new kitchen.
But this little country kitchen has only one window (the one over the sink), and then a little bit of light comes in from the back door, which also has a window.
The main thing I started to really dislike about our kitchen back then was that it was dark. Very dark. And if there’s one thing I love, it’s lots of natural light.
You can get a glimpse of what our kitchen looked like before in this post.
Since we couldn’t afford a complete kitchen remodel to add more windows, I decided to paint everything white to try to lighten it up. Even though I had planned to paint a long time ago, we didn’t get to it until June 2016 (you can see the before and after pictures here).
When we moved in, the previous owners had installed a new tin backsplash.
This list is filled with our favorite winter picture books.
Shortly after Christmas is over, I put away all the Christmas picture books and pull out the snow and winter-themed books. Since we only have them out for such a short amount of time, everyone looks forward to seeing them again.

These easy popcorn balls are the perfect no-stress cooking project for a winter afternoon!
Winter afternoons always seem perfect for cooking, baking, and crafting. Years ago, my children and I made these easy popcorn balls together, and I posted the recipe on my blog after a reader requested it.
Since the weather has been snowy and cold where we live, I was reminded of this recipe and decided to republish it.

The awesome thing about popcorn balls is that they easily resemble snowballs! They would go perfectly with a unit on snow, especially with this book (one of our favorite books about snow days).
Easy Popcorn Balls
This recipe for easy popcorn balls is super simple and only has 3 ingredients! As I mentioned above, it’s a great recipe to have your children help with.
In the photo below, my youngest daughter (who was around 5 at the time—she’s now 12!) is helping to stir the marshmallows. Be sure to use caution when you have little ones around a hot stove!
If your children are too young to help around the stove, you could always have them help you measure out the ingredients.
