I am a wife and mother that is passionate about sharing content that helps us each live a beautiful and virtuous life. As an etiquette instructor, I love to seek out the beautiful things that surround us. You can often find me making a meal with my husband, building LEGOs with my son, and reading a good book - all in a beautiful dress! Thank you for being a part of this community, I am so happy you are here!

Catholic Crate

Thank you Catholic Family Crate for sponsoring this post!

We were so excited to open the crate Catholic Family Crate sent us! This company creates beautifully curated Catholic crates. Each crate is filled with picture books, educational toys, activities, crafts, coloring pages, items to help parents grow in their faith and an amazing magazine to guide families through the materials in each crate and bring them together for rich discussions on the faith!
I love Catholic Family Crate’s mission to empower parents as the primary educators of their
children and build a Catholic culture in our homes. Their team includes two priests who theologically edit their material and ensure they are faithful to the teachings of the Magisterium. Their content is created under the guidance of Catholic Montessori teachers and Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Catechists.
These crates make wonderful gift for your child, godchildren, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren! Catholic Family Crate ships out crates quarterly and their next crate is Advent and Christmas themed! The other three crates include a Lenten and Easter themed crate and two faith formation crates that focus on topics like the Bible, the Rosary, and the Mass. If you are interested in subscribing to Catholic Family Crate know that there are no contracts and you can cancel at any time! You can even skip a quarterly crate if you want to! We cannot wait to see what is inside the other crates, we loved this one so much!
