    Holy Thursday Lesson

    Overview Holy Thursday is the first part of the Paschal Triduum which represents the three Holiest Days in the Church.  Annually, this day falls on the Thursday before Easter Sunday.  Through Holy Thursday, the Last Supper that Jesus Christ shared with his Disciples in commemorated.  Since it’s difficult for children, and some adults, to grasp the main concepts of the Triduum,  it best to focus on one component! As a result, I decided to focus on the Feet Washing. Welcome Activity I like to start all of my classes out with a short activity as they arrive!  I have found that for this coloring sheets, mazes, word-searches, or crosswords work…

    Ash Wednesday Lesson

    Overview Lent is such an important time in the Christian faith!  The Lent and Easter seasons can be confusing for children because there are so many Church “holidays” within the season.  These are all things that children will take time to learn because they are still confusing to us as adults.  Over the next few weeks I will be releasing the lessons I am using for my Sunday School class that I hope help you with your children ! Welcome Activity I don’t know about you but my students trickle in slowly over the first 10 to 15 minutes of our class.   I always plan a “Welcome Activity” that students…

There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of…

    Becoming the Proverbs 31 Wife

    This post may contain affiliate links, please see my disclosure policy here ! The perfect woman in the Bible is consistently the Proverbs 31 Wife, she is truly the Holy Grail of femininity!  One might ask themselves, does my husband truly want the Proverbs 31 Wife?  The answer to that question, whether your husband wants to admit it, is yes.  The Proverbs 31 Wife is not afraid of anything, she is beautiful, and she is strong.  If you ask me, I would love become the Proverbs 31 Wife!  So often the idea of the Proverbs 31 Wife is put down for being archaic or representing the old teachings of the Church,…

    The Forbidden Fruit

    The story of the forbidden fruit is a story that is as old as time, but it is a story that our children and students must familiarize themselves with.  The two most important themes in the story are original sin and temptation.  You might be thinking, how in the world can I teach younger children about sin and temptation when they have not experienced much in their life so far?  The answer is to do this by bringing those themes into other parts of their religion that they have already learned.  In the Catholic faith for example, children learn about Baptism at a very early stage.  When children are first…
