  • “Oh, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pour them all out, as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.” Dinah Mulock Craik


Practicing the Presence of God

  • He is always near you and with you. Do not leave Him by Himself. You would think it uncivil to leave a friend by himself who was visiting you. Why abandon God and leave Him by Himself? ~Brother Lawrence

Mother Teresa Quote

  • Thoughtfulness is the beginning of great sanctity. If you learn this art of being thoughtful, you will become more and more Christlike, for His heart was meek and always thought of others.

Oh Donna, I LOVE all your dc's books, thank you so much for the sneak peek at how you like to learn! They are beautiful, have the BEST year!! Blessings!

These are all beautiful! I'm going to show them to my dc :-).

I love these! We have saved many similar things, but not preserved in such a nice way. You are inspiring me to bind up my children's work in a much nicer fashion. :)

Great job! We love notebooking!

Donna these books are just wonderful, thank you for sharing.

Beautiful and very inspiring!

Donna your dc's books are amazing. What wonderful memories you all have.

I am wearing a big smile as I look at these clever, sweet, CREATIVE books.

  • Then, without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn't know it must learn and find by experience that a quiet conscience makes one strong. ~Anne Frank
