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!

Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

Thank you, Blessed Is She, for sponsoring this post!

This will be my third year using a Blessed Is She Lenten journal. Blessed Is She journals keep my prayer simple and focused. This year, the theme is Here Too, Where We Meet God. Blessed Is She is offering 10% off the devotional with code, ‘claire10‘!

Here Too journeys through the different places in Scripture where we have encountered Jesus, using powerful metaphors for our own lives. In the desert, at home, on the road, in the storm, on the mountain, in the garden, and at the tomb – Jesus is found in the ordinary, the heartache, the joy, and the sorrows.

Each week of Lent focuses on one of those themes while each weekday follows a beautiful rhythm. Each Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday we read passages from the Gospel and answer some heart pondering questions on Tuesday and Thursday. On Mondays and Wednesdays we read a story. Every Friday we read a powerful reflection about the week and on Saturday we read a Psalm.

What I love the most about this journal is that you are praying with so many women. Throughout the past three years I have loved seeing women share their experiences using the journal during Lent – from reflections on blogs to pictures on Instagram – it is both edifying and encouraging knowing that I am praying in communion with others, even if we are across the world.

You can purchase your Blessed Is She Lenten Journal by clicking HERE. Be sure to use code, ‘claire10‘ for 10% off! This discount expires January 18th at midnight! You can also purchase the digital download by clicking HERE. The Lent Bundle includes the Here, Too devotional, a stretch and wrap rosary bracelet, and a cotton canvas Here, Too tote and you can purchase it by clicking HERE!
