  1. Thank you so much for mentioning my blog. I can’t wait to check out the other links you posted. :)

  2. Hi Jared,

    I just thought that I would pop in to let you know that we have lots of great faith based resources on our blog and website, too, that catechists may find quite useful especially our Timeline of Christ and F3 Folders on the Sign of the Cross and Sacramentals. They are very hands on and fun for the kids.



    • Hi Kalie, I am sorry I didn’t mention your site. I’ve popped in to check it out periodically and you have some really creative things. Keep up the great work!
