The Catholic Mother’s Traditional Lenten Journal is now available to pre-order. I will be sending out the books by around the third week of this month so please pre-order now if you would like this for Lent! Link is here.
“Lent is a remarkable and rewarding season. For a Catholic, it is a time of fasting, prayer, almsgiving, reflection…. It is also a personal time of spiritual growth. That personal growth must reach its tentacles out to the family. Mothers, we live out our lives of service and love, and every season becomes an opportunity of teaching and planting seeds of the Faith in the minds and hearts of our children. I have prepared this Lenten journal to help you to keep on track. It is to assist you in keeping focused on making Lent a special time for your family. We do not have to do great things to influence those little people. No, we must do the small things in a great way…with love and consistency. Catholic culture is built on celebrating, in the home, the feasts, the seasons, the saints, the holydays….making them come alive in a beautiful and charming way. Lent is that special season wherein we teach our children the value of sacrifice and of discipline. This journal will lay out some simple activities in which your children will be doing their sacrifices and will have a tangible means of “counting” them for Jesus. You, Mom, will have a place to put a check mark if that the activity is remembered and completed for the day. This journal also includes a place for you to check off whether you are fulfilling your own personal resolutions…your Spiritual Reading, your Family Rosary, etc. It makes it more palpable if you can check it off at the end of the day….there’s just something about putting pen to paper when an accomplishment has been fulfilled! My hope is that this journal may help you stay focused on making this Lent fruitful for your own soul and the souls of those little people entrusted to your care!”
It’s the New Year and we need to get in shape as best we can in our own unique circumstances. Below is my little blurb (written approximately 3 years ago) about T-Tapp that is found at the top of my page under the T-tapp tab.
So many mothers struggle with their weight. Wouldn’t it be great to find something doable for busy mothers?
I heard about T-Tapp and how great it was some time ago. I didn’t pay too much attention but then my mom handed me the book Fit and Fabulous, Lose 2 Sizes in 4 Weeks by Theresa Tapp. OK, now I was interested!!
Anyway, it held true to its promise. I lost 2 sizes in 4 weeks and felt so much better. My posture was better which certainly was a plus. Years of nursing babies takes its toll on your carriage!
What I like about this workout is that it only takes 15 minutes, you can do it in the privacy of your home…and it works! 🙂
Listen and watch Charlotte Siems, a mother of 12 who went from a size 22 to a size 6! It’s quite encouraging!
You can get the book Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes
and/or the DVD. The DVD is very helpful! I have got to the point to where I have memorized all the moves and recorded the audio of the DVD onto my phone. It is all I need to do my T-Tapp workout!

“As women, we bring a very special part of God’s beauty to the world by our presence and through our words, actions, and deeds. Girls and women stand for all that is pure and clean and noble in this world. What delight should fill our hearts!” – The Valiant Maiden’s Crusade http://amzn.to/2iO8eOQ (afflink)
Thank you for the sermon recommendation!
The Lenten Journal looks very very nice! 🙂
Since saints days rotate during Lent, how do you notate for example, St. Joseph, or St. Patrick, or the Annunciation?
Or do we fill those dates in ourselves?
Very good question Mary. They are not included in the Journal since Easter is a movable feast. Moms will add their own agenda on those days. 😊
