OreMoose Leather Bible Covers

BIBLESSMALL-22.jpgThe Moose Theme features our red oak mesa leather. Stitched with thin black cord, the edges and banding give this cover a little more dimension and a classic aesthetic appeal. OréMoose Leatherwork started when Roger Johnson passed away on his ranch in Northern California. He left all his leatherwork tools to his 13 year-old grandson David Kruse. Little did either one of them know, David would experience a profound conversion after years of being a lost soul in the music industry and would end up joining Catholic Seminary in the Diocese of Winona-Rochester in Minnesota. In 2018 the OréMoose story began to take shape. David was on his one year parish internship and was being asked to make leather bible covers almost weekly. A year and half later, just before the world shut down from the COVID-19 pandemic, David felt an interruption in his call to the Catholic Priesthood. He felt God calling him out to evangelize through art. OréMoose Industries LLC was founded in September of 2020 and has been growing steadily since. The team is growing, the business is growing and the idea is expanding into many fields of art and evangelization.

Red Tractor Slim Leather Wallet

Carved Slim Leather WalletSlim leather wallet with a Cross and money clip, hand stitched and finished in three colors: Natural, Light Brown and Dark Brown. The money clip can be removed and doubles as a bottle opener. It has a front pocket for additional cards/money. They also offer custom belts, custom breviary covers, guitar straps, and more. The leather responds true to the cuts and stamps he makes, fueling the addiction to design more. Leather workers create artwork they can touch, feel and mold with their hands. We use methods that have been around for thousands of years. Nothing I create is mass produced or manufactured. All leather has imperfections and brand marks that actually aid in the design – adding to the personality of the piece.

They also offer Art classes for young and old! Click here to learn about what we offer and how to get involved!

It can be tough to raise our children in the faith, and even harder if it always feels like work.  This game makes learning about the saints and our faith fun. The cards themselves pack in a HUGE amount of info about each featured Saint, amounting to an entire biography in symbols and colors.  I love that there is so much to be learned while playing any version of the game…The possibilities are really limitless and could be adapted to be used with preschoolers all the way through adults.  It’s so nice to come across a faithful, well made, flexible game. Whether you are 5 years old or 105 years old, you will learn more about the history of the Catholic faith in a fun and engaging way with Saintcards.

Sacred Heart Holdings LLC is owned and operated by the Thomas family.  If you are looking for high quality Catholic crucifixes, statues, books, scapulars, and more, Catholic Sacramentals is the place to go. We hope to provide all people of good will with an opportunity to understand sacramentals and how they are to be used with devotion and faith.  Please use this site as a source of catechesis and devotion.  This site was created out of an acknowledgement of the reality of spiritual warfare that is so commonly denied by all in today’s times.

Baritus Catholic

Baritus Catholic has become our new favorite Catholic illustrator.

The two meanings of this Latin word come together graphically in the BARITUS logo through the representation of the angel blowing a trumpet while carrying a sword. This image reflects scenes from Scripture such as in the Old Testament where the Israelites rally around the sound of the trumpet where God fights for them, as well as in the New Testament where angels usher in the final judgment with the blast from a trumpet.

In the BARITUS icon, the trumpet and the sword are bound together with rope symbolizing the ever-present need to both proclaim the faith and defend the faith in evangelization.

Chris Lewis is the sole illustrator behind BARITUS Catholic Illustration. A convert to the Catholic faith with a professional background in graphic design and a love for illustration, this project came to fruition through a parallel journey in discovering the Truth of Christianity through Catholicism and a return to drawing after many years of setting it aside. The two paths converged after a series of spiritual and intellectual conversions in 2018, and the idea of beginning a project focused on sharing the Catholic faith through art was born. BARITUS is an artistic project dedicated to preserving the legacy of our rich Catholic artistic traditions, but in a way that resonates today.

Holy Bible – The Great Adventure Catholic Bible


The Great Adventure Bible makes the complexity of reading the Bible simple.

The narrative approach gives the big picture of salvation history and shows how everything ties together. This is the only Bible that incorporates The Great Adventure’s color-coded Bible Timeline learning system, a system that has made The Great Adventure Bible study resources the most popular and influential in the English speaking world. The color-coded tools make it easy to read and easy to remember.

This is a game changer. There has never been another Bible like it.


Why We’re Catholic from Catholic Answers

Why We’re Catholic assembles the clearest, friendliest, most helpful answers that Trent learned to give to all these people and more. Beginning with how we can know reality and ending with our hope of eternal life, it’s the perfect way to help skeptics and seekers (or Catholics who want to firm up their faith) understand the evidence that bolsters our belief—and brings us joy.

This is the number-one question Catholics get asked—and, sometimes, we ask ourselves. Why do we believe that God exists, that he became a man and came to save us, that what looks like a wafer of bread is actually his body? Why do we believe that he inspired a holy book and founded an infallible Church to teach us the one true way to live?

Ever since he became Catholic, Trent Horn has spent a lot of time answering these questions, trying to explain to friends, family, and total strangers the reasons for his faith

  • Some didn’t believe in God, or even in the existence of truth.
  • Others said they were spiritual but didn’t think you needed religion to be happy.
  • Some were Christians who thought Catholic doctrines over-complicated the pure gospel.
  • And some were fellow Catholics who had a hard time understanding everything they professed to believe on Sunday.

Why We’re Catholic assembles the clearest, friendliest, most helpful answers that Trent learned to give to all these people and more. Beginning with how we can know reality and ending with our hope of eternal life, it’s the perfect way to help skeptics and seekers (or Catholics who want to firm up their faith) understand the evidence that bolsters our belief—and brings us joy.

Memento Mori An Advent Companion On The Last Things

Memento Mori An Advent Companion On The Last Things

Memento mori or “remember your death” is a phrase long associated with the practice of remembering the unpredictable and inevitable end of one’s life. 
Memento Mori: An Advent Companion on the Last Things is the latest in a series of books by Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, FSP, that explores this traditional Christian practice of meditation on death in light of Christ.
Advent might seem like a liturgical season in which meditation on death and the other Last Things (judgment, hell, and heaven) is not appropriate. But, in times past, Advent was recognized as the perfect time to take a hard look at all the Last Things. In some parishes, priests used to give sermons on each of the Last Things to correspond to the four Sundays of Advent.

This book will help you to explore the reality that Advent means nothing without recognizing that Jesus came to save us from death, humanity’s most intimidating enemy and impossible adversary. Jesus was born to die so that we may live. Remembering this reality in light of our death changes lives.

Zelie Beans Coffee

Zelie Beans Coffee takes its name from Zelie Martin. She and her husband, Louis, lived in a small village in France. Both Louis and Zelie worked, he as a watchmaker/repairman and she as a lacemaker. They had 9 children, 4 of which would die in infancy or childhood. The 5 that lived into adulthood were all girls and they all entered into religious life. Zelie’s lace-making business did very well for her family that she was able to provide for the whole family. Though this did not mean her life was easy. She struggled with the deaths of her 4 children that died young. She also had trouble nursing her children. However, she persevered with faith and prayer. Zelie Beans Coffee is not just another coffee roaster. They strive to ensure that the growers and farm employees receive livable wages. With this in mind, Zelie Beans Coffee only sources beans from suppliers that provide fair and above fair prices for the unroasted beans. We also seek out those sources that continue to invest in women, their families, and their communities. Use promo code TCMS10 for 10% off at checkout!


The Illustrated Liturgical Year Calendar

The Illustrated Liturgical Year Calendar book cover

If you’d like to subscribe to receive a set of posters throughout the year, you can do so here.

There is a treasure trove of riches in the ancient Roman liturgy of the Church. The feasts and fasts, ember days, rogation days, and octaves make for a rising and falling as in the Gregorian Chant. Yet, we have forgotten so much, and it is difficult to recover these traditions in our age of noise and ugliness.

As a small offering to help families, and children especially, see sacred time illuminated in a beautiful way, Michaela Harrison and her family have worked together to make a set of fully illustrated calendars that follow the traditional liturgical calendar. These calendars present time not according to the months, but according to the different periods of the liturgical year.

With these calendars, you can ‘see’ time after Epiphany in a new light, Lent and Advent are framed with wood to remind us of the cross, and the seven weeks of Easter form a week of weeks that you can see all at once. This unique artwork presents in composition, color, and tone the things that Our Mother desires us to meditate on during each season of the year.

Each day in the calendars is fully illustrated with the Saint, feast or feria of that day. Themes from the breviary and from Dom Gueranger’s The Liturgical Year are woven throughout the imagery for each week. All of the information you need to see is there, fast days, the class of feast and even the color of vestments the priest will wear in the liturgy are available at a glance. The images of the saints are taken from the medieval and classical art traditions and represented together in such a way as to show the communion of the saints in our daily lives. Little nuggets such as the three epiphanies of Our Lord can be seen clearly depicted during the season of Epiphany.

These calendars are also a wonderful teaching aid to be used in homes, schools and anywhere the faith is taught.

The ideal companion for Kendra Tierney’s Advent book, “O Come Emmanuel”, available now! (Book not included.)

Sets are made with ¼ inch hardwood plywood. They are available in two sizes, and come with twenty-five ornaments coordinated with each day’s readings in the book.

These three-inch-wide ornaments are perfect for hanging on a pre-Christmas Tree or on a string across a wall or mantle. Hooks/string not included. See this listing for a set of two-inch ornaments with a wooden tree that can be hung on the wall, or used on a tabletop with the included stand.

Also check out our 2022 Liturgical calendars, available now in print and digital download!

Some notes . . .

  1. This is a home-manufactured wooden product cut with a laser. Expect to see some color variation in the wood, some knots, some scorch marks, and/or some slight splintering on the backs. There might be some soot or a burned wood smell on new ornaments. They can be wiped down with a damp cloth or baby wipe.
  2. These ornaments are designed to hold up to family use as Jesse Tree ornaments, but they have narrow places and probably can’t handle being played with as toys or dropped much.
  3. Sets take about many hours each just to cut, then they require finishing and packing, so there was a finite number we could create before Advent. I am offering just a few sets for sale. When they’re gone, they’re gone, so if you want one, please act quickly!
  4. No refunds or exchanges are available. But please let me know if there is a problem with your order so I can help.

Vintage Sacred Heart Medallion from House of Joppa

This Sacred Heart wall medallion is an iconic symbol representing the transformative power of divine love for all of humanity.  The heart opens to reveal a space to place a written prayer or notes of gratitude. It also has a hook on the back to hang on the wall or on an altar.  It can also be used as a Christmas ornament, baptismal or confirmation gift.

If you’re familiar with the story in the book of Acts when St. Peter visits the town of Joppa, he is led to the upper room where many widows are weeping at the death of Tabitha. St. Peter prays and says “Tabitha, arise!” and she opened her eyes. This verse has been significant to me my whole life, not just because my name is Tabitha, but because it made the word of God personal to me. My name is in there. And He knows it.

After more study I learned that “Joppa” means “beautiful”. When deciding on a name for our shop, it became clear that “House of Joppa” would reflect all that we’d hope to accomplish in our mission. We exist to offer modern Catholic Home Decor, jewelry and gifts to help others “live out the beauty” of the beloved Catholic faith.

Donate to Clear Creek Abbey 

Does your loved one already have everything they want? Donate to Clear Creek Abbey in their name.

What a joy it is to be able to sing in this truly monastic church, even if the walls have only risen, so far, to half their destined height! We are currently beginning the construction of the chevet, or eastern portion of the church containing the sanctuary. We will also be raising the transepts (arms of the cross) to their full height. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.




Sawzall AKA Reciprocating Saw

Best Sawzall Reciprocating Saw

What is a sawzall? It’s not a word that’s for sure. A sawzall is essentially the slang term or nickname (trademarked by the Milwaukee Tool Company) for a reciprocating saw. It’s basically one of the largest handheld power tools you’ll ever use (and it has many uses).

We talk about sawzalls in this episode. We really like The Saw Guy’s take on what to consider when buying a sawzall.

The bestselling book—more than 1.5 million copies sold—for every boy from eight to eighty, covering essential boyhood skills such as building tree houses, learning how to fish, finding true north, and even answering the age old question of what the big deal with girls is—now a Prime Original Series created by Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Greg Mottola (Superbad).

In this digital age, there is still a place for knots, skimming stones and stories of incredible courage. This book recaptures Sunday afternoons, stimulates curiosity, and makes for great father-son activities. The brothers Conn and Hal have put together a wonderful collection of all things that make being young or young at heart fun—building go-carts and electromagnets, identifying insects and spiders, and flying the world’s best paper airplanes.

Kreg Jig

Efficient Design and Hardened-Steel Drill Guides
Designed with the same tried-and-true efficient design and hardened-steel drill guides as the original Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig, the Pocket-Hole Jig HD lets you create joints in 1 1/2″ and thicker materials that are an amazing 50% stronger than traditional Kreg Joints™. If you are framing walls, building deck railings, outdoor furniture, or any other large project, you always want the strongest joint possible; and this is where the Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig HD excels — strength.

Great for 2x4s and 1 1/2″-Thick and Larger Stock
The Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig HD is optimized for working with 2x4s and 1 1/2″ thick and larger stock. It utilizes #14 heavy-duty, hardened-steel screws that provide incredible shear-resistance, as well as three anti-corrosion layers for incredible long-term moisture resistance.

Works As a Stand-Alone Jig
The Pocket-Hole Jig HD works great as a stand-alone jig. Simply connect it to your Kreg Face Clamp, lock it into place, and take it where you need to go. Depending on the project, the Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig HD can also connect directly to your model K3, K4, or K5 benchtop base for upright drilling.
