Catechist Resources

This is a listing of catechist resources I've found helpful over the years. Hope it helps you!

    Marian Resources

    My devotion to Mary has grown over the years, and since I've been getting an increasing number of requests for my favorite Marian recommendations, here you go.

      Welcome Baby Jesus
      Welcome Risen Jesus

      When I saw this on his phone, I assumed he was capturing the fabulous light and the sunset. He was, of course, getting the combine in action. Good reminder that things aren’t often what they seem.

      Cue the old lady voice, in which I intone about how I remember waaaaay back when the first edition of this book came out and how excited I was for my dear inspiration, friend, and mentor @lisahendey for her first book. And now it’s been TEN YEARS! And there’s a NEW EDITION! With THE CUTEST COVER EVER! And I’m just as proud and excited and inspired, ten years later. Thank you, dear Lisa, for the gift you are and have been for Catholic moms. ❤️🎉🙌 #lisahendeyftw #handbookforcatholicmoms #catholicmombooks #musthavebooks #greatcatholicbooks #catholicbookstagram ...

      This is the book version of “where does the time go?” Also know as “how has it been TEN YEARS since one of my favorite books came out?” And also “hey, how awesome is my life? THAT’S MY FRIEND!” #lisahendeyFTW #bookofsaintsforcatholicmoms #mybookishlife #bookview #whenyouhavebothversions #catholicmombooks ...

      I. Will. Finish. This. Book. 🤪
      Don’t get me wrong, it’s great. I’m just full of many other books. And my heart isn’t all-in on zipping through it when there is another book nearby. But now my Finish The Book side is screeeeeammmming and...well, maybe I will.
      But maybe not tonight. 😬😉

      Back porch #bookview with a porter, a novel on my Kindle, and the very wonderful new book by @kendra_tierney that I’m ever hopeful about finishing before my reviews are due... but I’m in a novel kind of mood. What’s in your hands tonight? ...
