The children's planners are new this year, many of you have been enjoying the free download and voiced the desire to have a printed version. We have answered that request in the Maidens for Mary and Crusaders for Christ children's planners!
Maidens for Mary Young Ladies Catholic Lesson Planner features an easy monthly layout for writing down appointments, classes, chores, and other items and then each week also has its own page with 9 subject spaces for writing down lessons completed or for writing lessons out ahead of time for the child to follow themselves and help to teach self regulation and discipline in regards to their daily lesson plans and education. Each week also features a saint quote as well as a new image of Our Lady or another maiden devoted to Our Blessed Mother. There is also a section on the weekly page for keeping track of weekly chores and errands as well as a daily check list for virtue practice. Another section is including for other basic record keeping such as a book reading log and more. For more information on this girls Catholic lesson planner please click here.
Crusader's for Christ Catholic Young Man's Lesson Planner is very similar to the young ladies planner but is designed to appeal to young men. The theme for these planners features a new image of a crusader on each weeks page and has a very knightly design and layout. Otherwise this planner has the same features as the young ladies: monthly calendar, weekly planning pages with daily task list, virtue practice and 9 subject spaces for lesson planning. To view more on all of these planners please visit our new book store site!
Our blog has been a little quite since Lent, Holy Week and Easter as we were busying keeping the season ( or in the case of Lent taking a break to keep the season) but we have also been working not only on these three projects but another exciting adventure for our little family!
Along with the release of the pre-orders on the lesson planners we also opened a book store featuring vintage Catholic reprints of some wonderful books! So many of these books we have reviewed and shared on our site and many of them can be hard to find. Quite a few of them are dated from the late 1800's and early 1900's. True treasures and full of the Catholic faith! We are so excited to be able to share these with you and make them readily available for your enjoyment. The book store may be found by going to www.AllTheSaintsAndPeterAndPaul.com and clicking on the book store tab to the top right.
We are still in the process of growing our selection so please check back weekly to see what is new. We are adding an average of one new title a day. To keep up on the new selections without the hassle please sign up for our e-newsletter that will come out once a month. The link to sign sign up for the All The Saints and Peter & Paul Newsletter is here or you can also find it on our main book store site at the bottom right of the page.
Many different subject matters are covered in the book selections but special attention has been given to educational books as well as books on motherhood as we understand that our readers (of this blog) seek those sort of books out most and they can be hard to find. Please if there is a topic you feel is missing or a subject that you have been searching for let us know by emailing us.
