Two New Things

I’ve just added a little something of a free handwriting review, since my kids seemed to need it after this summer. 🙂 Also . . .

Brief Handwriting Review


Daily Bible Readings for Three Years

Makes me think maybe I should make a compiled resource for Bible reading plans, though many of us follow curriculum or a plan already.

Let me know if there is more you’d like to see available on!

Three new freebies

I have never met Mrs. Gandy (only exchanged emails & texts), but I am already very impressed with how productive she is and how much she prepares to raise her children in the faith! She has prepared three new freebies:

As you can guess, in reverse order, there is a template you print with one of Augustine’s prayers. Then you can color, if you’d like, and fold it in three around a candle (loosely around the candle, obviously!). 🙂 The Ten Commandments are arranged classically, with two tables, Roman numerals, and with traditional Lutheran numbering. Then the Roman Wax Tabula is a craft to commemorate St. Zechariah on September 5th. Yep! That means writing, “His name is John.” I love it!

Mrs. Gandy’s commemoration resources are great, so feel free to see them all at her store page. Let’s see . . . 15 resources thus far and all of them free & typically revolving around the church year!

By the way, I got some great feedback this past week, including more Lutheran resources to point people to and a request for more compiled resources! Yay! So please accept this as a friendly reminder that relies heavily on Lutherans at large to know what is out there and what needs to be developed.

Thank you!

Four more Lutheran crafts is pleased to offer four more FREE Lutheran crafts!

  1. A Liturgicraft Printable – Time of the Church Kaleidocycle (AMAZING)
  2. A very nice Magnificat Coloring Page pairing free artwork with TLH text (and remember that August 15th commemorates Mary, the Mother of our Lord),
  3. A very nice Benedictus Coloring Page (similar to the Magnificat for September 6th), and
  4. A Rosary Poster for beading prayer beads (Yes, some Lutherans pray with a Rosary or prayer beads and kids often love to bead. Luther continued to pray the “Hail Mary” in this way: “Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.” )

Hymns for the Church Year

Our latest resource on is “Hymns for the Church Year.”  Using the Lutheran Service BookI selected three (or four) hymns per week of the church year to correspond with each week’s lectionary readings. That way, if you want to have a “hymn of the week” at home, you can have one organized around congregational practices through this easy, thorough, approach.

After three years, you and your family can know 156 hymns! You can start any time.

I followed the one-year Historic Lectionary readings & Sunday numbering, but this should work for the three-year also. The two big differences to be aware of are 1) different times to celebrate Transfiguration, and 2) the one-year lists Sundays after Trinity while the three-year lists Sundays after Pentecost. My columns didn’t allow listing both, but you can mark in a few for ease of practice.

I am charging $5 for it. I put a lot of work into it so there are no duplications!
