"Advent is a time where we are encouraged to go deeper into a relationship with God - to take what faith you have been given, and to go deeper." Today, I explore some of the deep, intense thoughts which have plagued my mind for several weeks - and, hopefully impart some inspiration from a dear friend, as well as some I have found while spending time in prayer.
Being intentional about living in the season of Advent before Christmas lead me to 2 different product reviews - one for the mama, one for the family! Check 'em out, and let me know... how do *you* plan to Advent Like a Boss this year?
"I'm always trying to find ways to incorporate faith-based products into our everyday life. Growing up, I would devour any and all tales of saints. And, starting in second grade, I became active in participating in the Mass. I started out in the choir, then moved into altar serving, and eventually found myself lectoring, reading, and being an all-hands-on-deck member of the community..." If you are a Catholic mom, you do NOT want to miss this review of The Mass Box for ages 4-8, and as a Catholic woman, this is a reminder about the Catholic Mom Bundle - something in there for every Catholic family and every Catholic woman. Guaranteed!
"I am so excited to be able to officially announce the launch of this book right here on my blog. More details about it, to include some inside glimpses, will be made available next week!" Until then, don't miss out on this amazing Advent Catholic Mom Bundle resource, featured on the blog today.
"I am, hands-down, impressed at the mothers and families who all have family-reflective Advents. But, that is not me. Not this year. And, to any other Christian mama out there, worried they aren't "doing Advent right," may I impart this little reminder - there is no "one way," and there is no "right way," to have the perfect Advent. From this Catholic mommy blogger to the reader feeling overwhelmed, I'm giving you permission to meet yourself where you are at - to not feel guilty if you aren't having an Advent you either wanted, or envisioned." I get real and honest in tonight's piece about Advent. And, why my family is getting their "pass" this year.
