St. Joseph Novena

O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. O St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most Loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us.

Real Learning: Education in the Heart of the Home

Real Learning: Education in the Heart of the Home, by Elizabeth Foss, By Way of the Family, 2003

Real Learning belongs in all homeschooling libraries.  I have read this book three times, since purchasing it in 2004.  Elizabeth Foss draws on the writings of St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (St. Edith Stein), while at the same time sharing ideas for teaching Language Arts, Math, History,  Science, Religion, Art and more in a loving and gentle manner.   Each time I read this book, I come away feeling refreshed and thankful for the gift of homeschooling.  I can't wait to read it again!
