School is back in session, and you know what that means? The Lego and Craft Challenges are back! As you can see from this perfect example above sent to us by Carley, Legos allow the imagination to merge into reality as creations, developed within the mind, make a physical appearance through our God-given hands and these tiny plastic wonders. Because of this, we are afforded an awesome opportunity to express the knowledge and understanding of our faith through their use!
At the suggestion of someone who has developed and overseen an extremely successful Catholic Lego Club in her area, we are thrilled to re-introduce you to the home of the "Catholic Lego and Craft Challenge."
Here, children (and adults!) will find a place to express their understanding of Scripture, the Church, and the lives of the saints. Your submissions will have a home to be loved and enjoyed by others, giving witness to the faith and teaching lessons along the way!
September Challenge: Jericho
A favorite from the past and exemplified in the submission above, this story has a LOT of potential in both Lego and craft creating! Submissions in the gallery have wowed us on this subject, and we can't wait to see the other ideas in store!
Just Click on the Catholic Challenge Zone Tab above and choose either the Lego or Craft option to submit your photos.
We can't wait to see your take on this fun theme!
Well, we knew there would be some issues, but we didn't expect to have NO success in achieving the Livestream! Apparently, the main problem centered around insuffiecient wifi strength. Justina will try to look for alternatives to get around this issue. Thank you for your patience as we figure this out, and we GREATLY look forward to chatting with you in the future Livestreams ahead! :)
It's time!! Justina's first Livestream! It will be held TODAY, at 3:00 EST. (Can anyone guess the reason behind this hour?)
Please get ready to join us in the chat. Please do be patient, though, in case we encounter some issues. We hear that the first time doing a livestream can pose some initial challenges! :)
We hope to see you there!!
Well, in every life, change inevitably occurs, and for us here in the Catholic Conundrum family, change is in the air!
For the first time, both Julia and Justina will be heading to college. Although we will still be making videos, the vision of what we do will be changing and transforming into new possibilities as God leads our family through these next phases of our lives. Below is one of our newest additions, and one that we are very excited about. Join Justina as she discusses this exciting new prospect: our first weekly livestream!
Especially designed for young adults, teens and tweens, this livestream will focus on prayer and all things Catholic. We truly hope you will join in as we support each other on our journey of faith!
This isn't your everyday relationship video. Today Julia, Justina and Kenzie from The Overnight Mom YouTube channel discuss relationships, love and the practicality of living them out in a God-centered way. In today's world, we could use some perspective on these issues in regards to the loving care of the Church and what God designed for us!
The words of the saints have inspired poetry and songs for centuries. On her travels, Julia felt called to write this beautiful round inspired by the words of St. Francis in "The Canticle of the Creatures." We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Please use the Closed Caption feature for these beautiful words of St. Francis.
PS...We don't claim to be singers, but we have learned to not be afraid to use the voices God gave us. :) Join us with the voice God gave you! (It's a round, so it's purposefully easy!)
I'm sure you have heard many assumptions about the Catholic Church, what she believes, etc., as you live your faith out and about in the real world. Check out this discussion as Julia and Justina briefly discuss 8 of the top assumptions/misconceptions about our Catholic faith. Please join in and add your thoughts to the comments below the video...the girls wanted to go into so much more detail but couldn't since they didn't want to make it an hour long video, so your thoughts and additions to helping debunk these assumptions could go a long way in the comments!
God bless your day!
Do you do morning and night prayer? What do you think about changing it up? Join Justina and Jocelyn as they discuss the purposes and benefits of these types and prayers and share your comments and suggestions on how YOU take this time for God!
Well, we're finally back! And how incredily apropos that our return back to media takes place on Pentecost...the birthday of the Church!
We've had one of those crazy last couple of months with unexpected health issues, finishing school, graduation, end- of-the-year ministries, etc. I had hoped this summer wouldn't be quite so busy, but we have taken on some major projects that originally had me concerned about keeping the channel and blog going. However, I have some amazing kids who are determined to do otherwise, even developing a plan of videos to produce as we prepare to take on the summer! Here's their "We're Back" video with some sneak previews of a few future videos!
May God bless you with a truly blessed summer.
Come Holy Spirit...Let the Fire Fall!
Although every attempt was made to get this up yesterday, it's better late than never (and at least is up before the Easter Vigil!) :)
People have been asking two questions for centeries...
Was this the only way that God could have saved us?
Why did Jesus have to undergo such a horrible death to save us?
We can't wait to share with you how the Church answers these questions through scripture and the writings of amazing saints like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas. Although this short synopsis can only touch on this deep subject, it still provides enlightenment and encouragement for all of the faithful!
