I am a proud and happy, Catholic homeschooling mother of eight children! (I was recently blessed with my second pregnancy in addition to my six adopted children.)
I probably should change my screen name to Helen instead of Mary Vitamin, but I really like the way "Mary Vitamin" looks. I have this idea that it points readers to the apostolate of Mary Vitamin (the Yahoogroup listed above.) Be that as it may, here in my "internet journal", I hope to bring together ideas, projects and prayers which connect a life of prayer with Catholic family life and homeschooling.
"The Christian family is the first place of education in prayer. Based on the sacrament of marriage, the family is the 'domestic church' where God's children learn to pray 'as the Church' and to persevere in prayer. For young children in particular, daily family prayer is the first witness of the Church's living memory as awakened patiently by the Holy Spirit." Catechism of the Catholic Church, #2685.
