When I tell you that this giveaway is Holy Spirit inspired, I mean it.
I recently received an email from one of my favorite Dominican Sisters, Sr. Maria Gemma. She said, and I quote,
OK – this is what I had to share. www.happysaints.com – he has the cutest pictures of the saints! Padre Pio, Clare and JPII are absolutely precious… no St Luke yet, though. I knew you’d get a big smile out of seeing these.
After clicking on that link, I did indeed fall in love. At first, I expected to simply see cute renderings of awesome saints. Then I saw there were two ebooks full of them! Each ebook is filled with 15 different saints. In the book are a plethora of resources: posters, prayer cards, notecards, badges and coloring pages. Yes, if you homeschool, teach religious education or are just looking for a fun way to introduce the saints to your children, I HAVE YOUR ANSWER!
As All Saints Day approaches I couldn’t help but start brainstorming about the ways I could use all these resources. I was impressed with the quality of the design (occupational hazard) and the myriad of uses. Because all my children are named after saints, the notecards will be a great thing for them to use. Certainly, the posters (sized 8.5×11″) and prayer cards (come in two sizes) would be awesome in a school or religious education setting.
I have a fun surprise in store for my children to celebrate All Saints Day. I’ve taken both sizes of the prayer cards, laminated them and plan on affixing the small one to each child’s backpack and then laminating the bigger card for use as a bookmark. Both treats will await them when they wake up that morning. Even if there’s not a prayer card associated with your child’s name, I’m betting they have a favorite! The coloring pages will be great for feast days, like when we we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day.
There are two eBooks, one and two, for a total of 30 saints (eBook three is coming soon!). The downside is that not every saint you love is in these books, but the saints included are done extremely well. I’m happy to share that I’m giving away the eBook of your choicem (one, two or three) for this month’s giveaway, just in time for All Saint’s Day on November 1! Just enter to win below, using Rafflecopter (oh, I am all fancy now).
