Recently I have had some conversations with a friend who made her own Blessed Mother doll for her girls to snuggle with at night. It is an absolutely adorable and soft doll that brings comforts to her girls, and reminds us that Mary is always helping us. I am a big fan of her title "Mary Help of Christians."

Hmmmm. Interesting. I considered the entire conversation prejudiced against Catholics, and in a heavily evangelical mecca such as Charlotte, it was not unfounded. The back and forth with the confused lady at the cash register was completely hillarious. At some point unbeknownst to her, I turned the conversation into an argument about faith, and not about dolls. Needless to say it was memorable.
Remembering this funny story made me want to see all the other fun little Catholic gifts we can give to our children. Many of these things are not just cool for kids, but for Adults too.
