I know so many of you are looking into purchasing a planner for the upcoming academic year, so I thought I'd share a bit about some of the planners I tested out for you! Here's a list of the planners that I'm comparing: The Blessed is She Planner (Big & Mini), The Recollections Brand from Michaels, The Living Well Planner, and the Day Designer (Mini).
In The Messiah Comes to Middle-Earth, Philip Ryken reflects on the three-fold offices of Christ as Priest, Prophet, and King as they are echoed in the characters of Gandalf, Frodo (and Sam), and Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings. The book is comprised of three lectures given by Ryken, as well as a response to each lecture.
Happy Easter! Just wanted to take a second to share some of my most recent Etsy finds with you, friends! I love discovering new shops and makers so I thought you might, too. If you know of any other Etsy shops we might love, leave them in the comments!
Katie's blog, Look to Him and Be Radiant, has been a source of inspiration and encouragement in the past few years as we've begun learning about and experiencing the richness of our Catholic faith. I've found so many ideas for projects and ways to incorporate our faith into our home and family life through both her blog and Instagram feed!
Last April, as our book club was reading The Fellowship of the Ring and preparing to begin The Two Towers, I began writing a companion journal to accompany and enrich our discussion as we journeyed through Tolkien's world together. Since then, we've released a journal for The Two Towers as well as one for The Return of the King, and today we're finally launching the Pre-Sale of our Fellowship of the Ring Journal! (How awkward to have done things out of order, but now we're all good!)
Each chapter includes a reflection on a theme, quality, or quote from the book. I’ve included space for lettering favorite quotes or doodling, as well as lined area for note-taking and discussion. My hope is to foster a love for beauty and truth as it is present in Tolkien’s world, to draw you closer to Christ through its meaning and philosophy, and to inspire you to action through journaling prompts.
