Chosen: A Confirmation Program Worth Checking Out


As a Confirmation catechist and program leader, I am ALWAYS looking for great resources. With our Confirmation Boot Camp program, we have never found anything that works completely and totally.

Celebrating the Small #SmallSuccess

Here’s my three-pack of Small Success this week: 1. The floors are vacuumed. And NOT BY ME. #win 2. I said yes to the playground. TWICE. 3. That wonderful smell? Cupcakes by my budding chef. And I let her ice them too. (And THEN I let the other two “help” ice, too. The folks at […]
