The Real Reason for St. Patrick’s Day

Besides being a fun reason to wear green and pinch those who don’t, it is a celebration of a man of God who sacrificed all for the sake of the gospel. Hands down, the best book for telling the true story of St. Patrick’s Day is The Story of St. Patrick: More Than Shamrocks and Leprechauns Full Disclosure: At no additional cost to you, I earn a commission if you click this link and make a purchase. Thanks for your support! .

This is a great book to read for family worship time together, as it will certainly bring up some good conversations about a heart for the lost, and sacrifice for the sake of others and their salvation.

Highly recommend this book! You can read more about The Story of St. Patrick book in last year’s post.

Fun Ideas for St. Patrick’s Day

We had all sorts of fun with the color GREEN last year! A quick trip to The Dollar Store and we were set with fun accessories! We ate pistachio pudding (yummie!) and green macaroni and cheese (just add green dye to the water when you boil the noodles.)

Green food, St. Patrick's, fun with kids

    Adults need to learn or be reminded of this great Man of the faith. Thanks Katie, for all the helps and study guides you offer. I am truly enjoying Run to Him, but taking it very slowly and gleaning some powerful truths from the Word.

    Thanks for the recommendation. It wasn’t available at my library but it’s on Amazon and free shipping (with $25) and of course, there’s more on my wish list to make up the difference 😀

    This book is much cheaper on Voice of the Martyrs website- $12 alone or St. Nicholas, St. Patrick, and St. Valentine together for $30. Great organization to support!
