Have You Seen These “Dolls From Heaven?”

They are so cute! Seriously, they make me almost wish I had a daughter. LOL!

StTDoll

St. Therese

This doll of St. Therese is the first in a line of dolls to be created by the Kiczek family. The Kiczeks are a Catholic, pro-life family seeking to help raise up a generation of future saints! Besides the doll, there are even accessories, a book about St. Therese, and an additional outfit for purchase.

The additional outfit is an adorable “Sunday Best” outfit:

The doll is affordable and no doubt will be a source of inspiration for your girls in helping them develop a relationship with the Lord.

You can preorder the book here and you can find more about the dolls here. (Make sure you watch the promotional video.)

10 Prolife Charities Worthy of Support

We all know that Christmas time is a popular time for giving money to our favorite organizations. Right before the year’s end is usually someone’s last chance to donate in order to get his or her tax break. If this is you and you are looking for organizations, I’ve got some great suggestions. 🙂 All of these suggestions are for organizations either directly or indirectly support life in all its stages.

*A reader, in the comments, expressed her negative experience with Priest for Life so I looked up their charity rating: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=6438#.VfwLuJcer-s. My experience with them have always been positive, but use your own discretion in deciding to support this group or not.
