Sponsor Spotlight: Clay Rosaries by Sarah


The first sponsor for our Run for the Little Flowers 5K Giveaway  I would like to spotlight this week is Sarah Harkins of Clay Rosaries.  I was first introduced to Sarah's amazing creations through the wonderful world of blogs.  Sarah is a fellow Franciscan grad who has a beautiful gift for handcrafting rosary beads.  She is a homeschooling mom to three precious kids, and one on the way and has been making clay bead rosaries for 15 years.

Above is one of my favorite pieces of Sarah's, The Saint Andrew Chaplet.  Please take a moment to click over to Sarah's blog, The Clay Rosary Girl, to see the process of how these beautiful beads are made.  Do not worry, I will wait for you!


If you go to Sarah's store and check out any of the many rosaries, chaplets, or jewelry pieces, you will often find a link to the meanings of the beads and how they were made.  All of the items are handcrafted and unique.  They make the perfect gift for Confirmations, First Communions, and birthdays!
 
And, lucky for you, Sarah has donated one of her rosaries the help raise money for the Little Flower Projects!!  So, please thank her by checking out her store and keeping her amazing items in mind when purchasing gifts!
 
After you have checked out the store, please come back and tell me which rosary you would pick if you won the giveaway!
 
All who have registered/donated to the run have a chance to win!
 
Thank you Sarah for your generosity!!

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

Hope's Birth Story

When it comes to birth stories, most women do not write up, nor do I think they want to read about, scheduled c-sections. But, I want to remember the day and if I do not write it here to publish, it is unlikely that I will sit down for my own sake, and write, so bear with me as I recount the day.

As with most scheduled, repeat c-sections, the date was scheduled months in advanced.  I knew that Hope would arrive on May 3 unless she decided to surprise us and my body would decide to go into labor for the first time ever.  Although I am older and anything is possible, I thought it highly unlikely, so I was not too worried that she would be born any sooner that May 3rd.

The hospital that I deliver at has started something called the "Family Centered C-Section."  If you are having a scheduled, routine, c-section, you can elect to have a family centered c-section.  Basically, they allow you to have some of the experiences that you miss in a c-section that you have in a natural birt…
