Encouraging Confession

A few weeks ago, a friend asked me how we encourage our children to go to confession. I shared the following with her. I am sharing it here just in case it helps any other mothers. 

In my family, we make it a habit to go to confession on the First Friday/First Saturday of each month. If any of the children want to go before then, they can do so. Having your child review his conscience each night before bed is a good habit. We can help our children by focusing on the 10 Commandments with prompting questions (Did I always listen to my mommy and daddy?) and letting the child reflect on each one quietly in his head. We have been known to go over the 10 Commandments with questions on our way to Mass. Don't ever tell your child that he has sinned. Do gently help him see that he has done so by encouraging him to examine his conscience at the end of each day.

Summer Garden



One of the benefits of gardening is having a ready supply of cut flowers to place around the house.

One of the Eight Best

I am happy to share that Lilla Rose has been named one of the eight best direct sales companies by Woman's Day,
I became an independent Lilla Rose stylist in 2014. When I first signed up, I thought that I was doing so for the 30% discount, but I soon realized that selling beautiful, comfortable, durable hair accessories is a great way to earn a little extra money. For a one time fee of $49.95, plus shipping and tax, Lilla Rose provides a free website and commissions of 30% to 45%. There are no quotas to meet. This means that I can focus on my family. I am thankful that I found Lilla Rose, as the extra income really does help my family. I am also thankful to have made some wonderful friends. If you would like to learn more about becoming a Lilla Rose consultant, please let me know. I would love to have more people join my growing team.
