GIVEAWAY: Fill Your Easter Basket!

Can you believe Easter is just around the corner? It seems like seasons and years have just begun only to find out, we are already into month three of the year, and a mere weeks from the Resurrection of Our Lord, Jesus Christ! While our goal is not to detract from the penitential nature of the season of Lent, we do understand that Easter baskets are probably on your radar by now {or maybe it just now hit you?}. 

Just after Robin’s Eggs candy, Peeps, and plastic grass to get stuck to it, how would some amazing Catholic movies for your kiddos/godchildren/nieces/nephews sound? {details to enter at the bottom of this post}

About Martina Kreitzer

Martina is a cradle Catholic, wife to Neil, and mother to seven kiddos here {and three in heaven}– 4/96-1/17. She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.
