Saints Book (1)
This 60-page book includes full-color illustrations of the saints and an easy-to-read story of their lives. It also includes an explanation of each virtue and coloring pages!
Stickers (2 sets)
A set of stickers--one for each of the nine saints--makes the kit interactive. The beautiful, original illustrations appeal to children and include the symbolism for each saint. Each kit includes two sets.
from St. Paul's Epistle to the Hebrews
Everybody has a role model, someone they look up to and emulate.
Unfortunately, our society is full of terrible role models. The loudest voices in the world are often pushing immoral agendas.
Whose picture is your child going to have on the wall? Who will he or she look up to?
I'm a mother of two young children myself, and I know I have a small window of opportunity to fill their lives with powerful, holy mentors before the world tries to sway them in a different direction.
That is why I created Our Heavenly Friends, a way to systematically introduce your child to nine different saints.
"I have a small window of opportunity to fill their lives with powerful, holy mentors before the world tries to sway them in a different direction."
The best part of Our Heavenly Friends is that every saint is associated with a virtue we want to instill in our children: courage, kindness, integrity. These markers of good character help children apply what they learn about a saint's life directly to their own.
OHF was originally designed to be used by servants in the Sunday school room. Posters and stickers have gone out to 600 children across the globe--four countries and 13 states.
But SO many parents wrote to me asking for individual kits, wanting to work one-on-one with their child. Finally, it's a reality and available now!
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
Each kit comes with an Our Heavenly Friends workbook, with stories of the saints, an explanation of the virtue associated with each saint, and coloring pages. Each kit also comes with two folded posters and two sets of stickers.
I have included in every kit two posters and two sets of stickers so each child has their own. It makes sense to order a second kit if there's a large age gap, and you don't feel they would share the book well. (For example, my daughter is eight and would be very upset if her three-year-old brother scribbled all over her book.)
The nine saints in these kits are St. Mary, St. George, St. Demiana, St. Mina, St. Marina the Monk, St. Moses, St. Helena, St. Pishoy, and St. Verena. May all their prayers be with us!
For a limited time, shipping within the United States is FREE! International shipping is a flat rate of $12 for the first kit ($10 each additional). If you would like to place a large international order, please contact me first.
These kits are designed for ages 4-11. My three-year-old son loves his, asking to be tested on identifying the saints on his poster and flipping through the book.
You can always contact me with any questions.
