A Special Gift...

... arrived in the mail this afternoon, on the first of two very special days! I love the little ways in which the Holy Spirit is always working in our lives. 
God is good... all the time! 

Note: The author of this book, who kindly and generously gifted me with a copy of Saint Christopher following my post about their Saint Catherine of Alexandria book, has offered a special to my visitors here at Shower of Roses. If you would like to order any of the books from Potamatis Publishing, they will refund 10% and ship the books at no charge! Just mention that you "found them from Shower of Roses!"

  5. They have some beautiful publications on hard-to-find saints. We have the booklet The Story of the Vasilopita (St. Basil) which I like to read on the feast of St. Basil(January 2). It is small--a nice stocking stuffer or little gift for the "12 Days of Christmas." "The Nativity of Christ" and "The Gifts of the Magi" are also beautiful little booklets and nice stocking stuffers. I like to use the booklets to teach kids about "reading icons."

  6. What age would you say this book is geared to? Would it be a good read aloud book for preschool/kindergarten age? I am looking for a good St. Christopher book for my boys to help them learn about the saint we will be asking to watch over their daddy while he.is deployed.

    1. My Kindergartner did enjoy listening to the Saint Christopher book. If you'd like to preview it you can listen to an audio version here: Christopher Part 1 and Christopher - Conclusion

      You can also preview the pages of the book on the publisher's website.

      We will say a prayer for your husband, and you!! God bless you all!
