One Blessed Mamma

I think we need to come play in your backyard!


Hi Tiffany, Thanks! We definitely feel blessed!!


Julie, Yes! Please come and visit. We should be in your neck of the woods some time this summer!


Wow!!! Now I REALLY REALLY want to figure out a way to come visit you!!


That is beautiful! We lived a lot of different places growing up but in one of the houses there were some woods and a very small creek and we had soooo much fun back there. I have so many memories of that time!! What a blessing to be able to live on such beautiful land.




Hi Tracy, I will have to take some pictures of some of the fossils we have found. Two of them look like dinosaur teeth. We really can't figure out what they are. Our boys are just thrilled. Your right, It is a little slice of heaven for them!


Jennie, You guys can come up and play in ours anytime!!!


My son would think he had died and gone to heaven to have a creek and fossils in our backyard. Good move!


Barbara, That is awesome that it freezes so you can play hockey!! How fun! I actually do wish it was closer to the house. It is a little bit of a hike to get there.


We live in the suburbs, but are fortunate to have a creek in the backyard (sometimes is just about IS the backyard) and my kids have grown up in it. It is cleaner now than it was when we moved here 15 years ago, and now Faith is using it as a "water park." It's not deep enough for swimming, but there are smal fish and craw dads and cool rocks. It is a great place to grow up. In the winter it often freezes and then we have a little hit of hockey! Yours probably won't freeze, but it is a fun place even in the winter, and the landscape changes so much with snow and frozen water at the edges. You'll never regret having it!

Beautiful! I grew up with a woods and a creek and that's all I wish we had here.

About Me

  • Hi, my name is Kirsten. I am married to my best friend and we have nine awesome children including our little saint in heaven, Thomas Joseph. We are Catholic, loving, living, and learning about our faith every day. We just moved to a fixer upper farm here in beautiful Kentucky. We also homeschool some of our children. I really enjoy COFFEE, reading, gardening, running, and knitting. I try to enjoy, laundry and cleaning bathrooms and sweeping floors. But what I really love is to be home, with my husband and children, living this life. This blog is where I write about the good stuff (mostly). Thanks for stopping by!

Prayer to St. Joseph

  • PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH THE WORKMAN Composed by Pope St. Pius X O glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen.

A Considered Childhood by Elizabeth Foss

  • As much as I am able, every day, I will ensure that my child will: * Live the Liturgy * Experience loveliness * Breathe deeply: Fresh air and exercise * Serve others * Listen to, contemplate, and exchange ideas. * Develop expressive skills. * Practice logical reasoning. Math. * Receive focused attention and affection
