Night of Mysterious Blessings

Night of Mysterious Blessings takes you on an adventure with a boy and his beloved dog. Enter this curious, oh-so-mysterious night, and be amazed at what you see in the morning’s light. Best of all, you will discover the priceless key to worrying less and smiling more.

So many books stress God is always with us. How fantastic for a book to proclaim the incredible truth that God is also within. For children to discover such intimacy with God—while their hearts are open to receiving the mystery of his presence—is a lifelong gift.

Jesus, Were You Little?

“Out of the mouths of infants and nurslings you have brought forth praise” (Mt 21:16).

In Jesus, Were You Little? children full of questions and wonder take readers on a journey of discovery, making Jesus real and relatable to young and old. With innocent curiosity, children ask the King of kings if he ever climbed a tree, spilled his milk, or skinned his knee.

“Were you little? Just like me?”

Adventure by adventure, we realize that Jesus knew the joys, pains, and vulnerability of being little. Finally when a child, with budding devotion, asks the ultimate question — “Jesus, were you little? Just for me?” — we join together in the youngsters’ joy at the answer.

Spiritual Exercises – Discernment and Examen

Helping Children Grow in Jesus

Jesus calming the sea. Spiritual Exercises.

Spiritual Exercises

If we merely read about Jesus calming the sea, we miss the boat. But if we use our imaginations to experience the assault of the wet wind, the rocking of the boat, and Jesus bringing utter calm to the waves with one command, the biblical story comes alive as never before.

Discernment and Examen

Discernment and Examen

How often do you need to make a decision, and NEED to make the right one? Ever wish God would send you a text giving you some good advice? It would be helpful to see what the Source of all wisdom says, even in smaller matters.

In this workshop, I’ll share some of St. Ignatius’ “rules of discernment.”

Helping Children Grow in Their Love for Jesus

Scripture wasn’t written only to record how Christ interacted with people 2,000 years ago. Christ’s love and words of wisdom are meant for each one of us today. The sensory details in the guided prayer below allow children to imagine themselves with Christ in a Bible story and, ultimately, to experience his love for them.
