The lovely and wonderful Emily Wilson wrote in a recent blog, "Saints are made at night in the nursery across the world." This statement rings so true as write this after rocking my newborn countless times through out the night in the nursery, a place where "suffering is endured and extravagant love is poured out".
The nursery not only houses children, toys, loads of clean and unclean laundry, and other treasures our children find but it also houses the initial starting ground for raising and growing saints. While the paint on the walls colors the space, what it is filled with matters the most.
To make even the most busy spaces holy in your Catholic home, consider hanging art or photos of your childrens' patrons or namesakes.
Add beautiful Catholic toys like Saint Squishies or Guardian Angel dolls.
A definite kid favorite is a cozy and warm minky blanket that quickly makes the nursery a fun, faith-filled place to play and rest.
While little ones lay down for the night or for a nap, inspiring crib sheets remind our babies and ourselves of the holiness of raising children and what a gift they are.
A customer recently shared a story with us about her daughter finding comfort in our products. "One evening this spring, while the wild winds whipped through Colorado, we lost power to our house. Startled by the sound of the wind and sudden darkness, my daughter first cried out from the nursery in concern and fear then quickly shouted, "Mommy! I am going to get my Guardian Angel doll to keep me safe!" The availability of her beautiful doll from the Little Rose Shop gave her comfort and peace when the outside world was literally roaring."
We love hearing these stories and are so happy our products can serve your families in such unique and powerful ways.
