Epiphany house blessing
It's not too late to do something SUPER simple for Epiphany! All you need is a piece of chalk (we used chalk pastels) and a copy of the house blessing found here.
Christus Mansionem Benedicat!
I know it's popular to fuss about New Year's resolutions and remind everyone that those-things-never-stick, but GOLLY! I LOVE the opportunity to begin again!
As I looked back at the last year, one of the glaring opportunities for change in the new year was my own reading. I read a lot to my children, but over the past year, (that included having a baby, amongst other big changes) I've not read a lot of good, meaty material. I think I've been snacking on little bites and nibbles of information throughout the day, whether from blog posts or online articles. But I haven't really had any good, satisfying brain food this past year. And I want to change that.
So...I created a 2016 Book Challenge for myself...and for you, if you'd like it. My challenge included 24 categories/ criteria, which is pretty doable for me, I think. I printed this on both sides of a piece of parchment paper, which makes for two long bookmarks (obvious enough I shouldn't forget it). I also printed one on a single sheet of paper, folded it in half lengthwise and punched holes in it for the binder I use for homeschooling/ everything-else-in-my-life. I'm planning on writing titles in the space below every prompt.

Let me know if you decide to join my challenge!
