Foundations of Home Blog

This year I was blessed to travel to Austin Texas for the Edel Gathering as a vendor for Holy Heroes. Edel is a gathering for mothers and was masterminded by bloggers and authors Jen Fulwlier and Hallie Lord. I met so many amazing women, mothers of 12, “moms-to-be” other twin mommies, just a whole bunch of women striving to live out their vocation of Catholic Motherhood. I have to say that one of the cutest women I met there was a fellow Canadian, Christy. She is so cute and young I assumed she was maybe on her first kid. Low and behold, she has five beautiful Children! See, how cute is she? Her blog is just as cute and I love how much she and I have in common (five children, homeschooling, Canadian, Catholic…) Maybe what I love most about her blog are her cute pictures that

Preparing for Christ During Advent and Every Day

Finding ways to Truly Celebrate Advent with Family and Friends

The Holidays. The commercials, the radio, and the store fronts won’t let you forget it: the holidays are just ahead. As the weather cools and the familiar Fall sights and smells invade our senses we look forward to pumpkin pie, seeing family we haven’t in a while, exchanging gifts, and all the traditions the fall and winter brings.As the hubbub and chaos ensues, I often find that everything is over before I really get a chance to reflect on the meaning of these Holy Days, these Holidays. My best laid plans to really teach my kids what this time is all about get pushed aside and before we know it we are packing up the manger after Epiphany and trying to sneak in some lessons as we wrap the Baby Jesus in tissue paper. The problem of finding time to reflect on the Holidays and celebrate the
