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!
Holy Week is Here!! This is undoubtedly one of my favorite times of the year. Certainly the extreme in the mixed bag of emotions on the spiritual level, this week brings about the greatest highs and lows of our faith. This year, our plans for great Holy Week videos haven't quite worked out yet due to some crazy life happenings, so I wanted to put together some videos we made last year that supported this great week.
For families and parish classes, I HIGHLY recommend the "Holy Week- Unique Experience" video... this was truly an awesome way to bring Holy Week to life. I have since used the idea in catechetical classes for grades 6-8 and the kids have done an amazing job!
I am praying that you each experience this truly blessed week that reveals the climax in the greatest love story ever told. May Jesus, the Lover of Our Hearts, fill you with every possible grace this week and draw you closer to the unimaginable glory of all that He is!
Here is Episode 2 of our kid science series...EASY Gas and Fizz Experiments that kids can do all by themselves!
Focusing mainly on the power of carbon dioxide, John Joseph, Ben, Hannah, Sarah, and Ava demonstrate how fun the science of gasses can be.
We hope that your kids are inspired to have a "blast" learning about science in this off-the cuff, yet informational, kid science video!
She's back! Justina welcomes Kenzie Mormile of The Overnight Mom YouTube channel back to discuss everything rosary!
From tips, ideas, and favorites, they have plenty to share about this beautiful gift given to us by Our Lady.
Please join in and add your thoughts to the conversation in the comment section of the video!
I can't tell you how often I have heard parents claim how hard it is for their kids to learn and understand the point of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. So...enter the birth of a new song that will hopefully accomplish just that! This song is actually sung by my attention-shy teen, whom I am so proud of, and performed by my brother Ron on ukelele and bass guitar. This one is not just for kids...it is written Jason Mraz-style in the hopes that the words will never be forgotten and is great for receiving the sacrament of Confirmation at ANY age!
God put this song in my heart about 6 months ago, so I am so excited to get it done, even though we faced a LOT of challenges along the way.
I hope you enjoy it! Please feel free to pass it on!
May God continue to give you a fruitful Lent!
