We are only about a week past Litha, but the Lammas harvest season is already in full force here on the homestead. We haven’t had a lot of spare time, but we did acquire a new book recently. Little ones, homeschooling and related things have been on my mind lately. Unfortunately, I haven’t found many Pagan themed children’s books. So when I saw Rupert’s Tales: The Nature of Elements by Kyrja, I immediately decided to buy it.
After finding Wicca, I struggled to find ways to celebrate the Sabbats. Even though I grew up in a Christian household, holidays were not big events. I wanted to change that tradition, but I wasn’t sure what to do. Over the years, I have tried a lot of different things. Some were great, and some flopped. I want to share with you my top five ideas for celebrating Litha.
I love libraries. Growing up, my Mom and I went to the library every Saturday. I looked forward to it all week. There is just something special about libraries and books.

I looked up Amazon’s list of best selling children’s religious holiday books today. Unfortunately, there is only one Pagan book on the list. I have never understood why there are so few resources for the children of Wiccans and Pagans. There is a seemingly endless supply of beginner books for teens and adults. However, I have only found a handful of resources for little ones. With the Solstice fast approaching, I wanted to create a Sabbat themed worksheet. So, I created this free Litha word search printable.
In my family, holidays and celebrations center around food. It isn’t the healthiest tradition, but it is how I was raised. We are less than three weeks away from Litha. That means it is time to plan the menu. In my opinion, this Southern Tea Cakes recipe is perfect for summer. I make them every […]
We are quickly approaching Midsummer. Here that means the temperature will soon reach triple digits. While I admire those who live off grid, it just isn’t feasible for my family at this time. So, my mission is to minimize our energy consumption and carbon footprint. As of 5/31, we now pay an average of $51 a month for electricity. Here are the top 5 ways we reduced our electric bill.
