Little Flowers Girls' Club Wreath IV Lap Book

I am so excited to share the Wreath IV Lap Book I've been working on this summer with you all!   I had a pretty good idea when I got started of what I wanted it to turn out like, but transferring it from my mind to actual printable mini-books was much more time consuming than I originally thought it would be.   So, even though it is rather simple, I am very proud of this "accomplishment!" :)

(Illustrated by my sister Julianna. Thank you Juli!! - of course each girl can decorate their cover however they would like!) 

(To be completed before the first meeting. - The girls can complete this book however they would like, either by writing, illustrating, or even pasting in photographs!) 

Here is an example of how simple this can be done:

.: Mini-Books that will be added to Monthly :.

(paste or write in one Definition and one Motto at each meeting)

(Compete and add one of each, at each meeting.  Have the girls write or narrate a little something they remember (or a lot!) about each person inside the profile books.)

(add one jewel to the Treasure Box at each meeting, pasting or writing the explanation on the back)

.: Additional Meeting Specific Mini Books :.

Meeting #1 - The Gift of Wisdom 
Have each girl find and copy their favorite quote from the book of Wisdom

Meeting #2 - The Gift of Understanding
Have each girl find a passage from the Book of Proverbs on Understanding to copy and memorize

Meeting #3 - The Gift of Knowledge
Have each girl find and copy their favorite quote from Psalm 139 on Knowledge

Meeting #4 - The Gift of Counsel
Words of Counsel from a Doctor of the Church
Have each girl find and copy a favorite quote from a Doctor of the Church

Meeting #5 - The Gift of Fortitude

Meeting #6 - The Gift of Piety
Copy some favorite quotes on Devotions at Mass, to remember at Mass

Meeting #7 - The Gift of Fear of the Lord

.: Prayer Booklet and Cards :.

.: Additional Coloring Pages :.
(choose one of these beautiful coloring pages found online for the back cover)

.: Assembly of Lap Book :.

This Lap Book was compiled with 2 light pink file folders with 2 hot pink sheets of cardstock added as flaps/pages for the Saints and Converts (attached with clear packing tape).   There are also a couple more sheets of pink cardstock used as well - one for behind the coloring page on the front, and the other creating a pocket on the back to store a St. Therese Paper Doll or St. Therese and Her Family Paper Dolls.   Here is a picture of my daughter holding my completed sample Lap Book:

The downloads for all of these Mini Books can all be found in this folder at Scribd.

I have also compiled a document listing which of the Member's Guide Assignments the Mini-Books included in this Wreath IV Lap Book satisfy towards earning each of the jewels for the Wreath IV patch.

St. Therese, the Little Flower, Pray for us! 


  1. Wow!!! God bless you for all the hard work Jessica!! Your children as so blessed with a mom like you!!

  2. WE are blessed to know you, Jessica~you are truly amazing.
    Your husband and children must be so proud of you my dear !
    Thank you, thank you so much.

  3. This is beautiful. Makes me wish my daughter were old enough to participate. :)

  4. Jessica, this lapbook is fantastic! What a treasure! Thank you so much for your hard work. Thank you so much for sharing your talents once again. My daughters and I will enjoy every minute of Wreath IV.

  5. Quite honestly I am speechless!


    Now get some rest LOL ;-)

  6. So amazing! What a wonderful resource you are, I am so blessed to have found your blog!

  7. Thanks for your generosity and sharing all your beautiful creations. I look forward to using these with my group. You are very talented:)

  8. Hi Jessica,
    We are getting ready to start this wonderful lapbook as part of our Little Flowers activities this year. I was unable to access the Knowledge document (A Quote from Psalm 139 on Knowledge) as it states that it has been removed from Scrib. Any chance you could email to me or let me know what to do? Thank you so much! God bless!

  9. Also, would love to have a copy of the coloring page created by your sister...but that also has been removed from Scribd. Thank you again for this amazing lapbook! We are so excited to get this started.

  10. On no, there's one more - 'Prayers to the Holy Spirit' pocket in which to place/store the prayers. That document has also been removed from Scribd. Could be something I am doing wrong. Any advice? Thanks again. I apologize for the multiple comments, ugh. Peace and blessings!

  11. Hi Elizabeth - No, you aren't doing anything wrong. Send me an email - jessica(dot)showerofroses(at)gmail(dot)com - so I have your direct email address and I will send them over to you. God bless!

  12. Hi, I just happened to find your site when researching curriculum for our Catholic Homeschool. I must say, I am so impressed by all of your hard work and beautiful lapbooks. I was wondering is there an area where I can just click on one link, and in one click, download all of the lapbooking pages for this Catholic lapbook on St. Therese? It would be a great time saver if there is one. Thanks, again, so very much! I look forward to hearing from you! :-)

    1. I'm sorry for the delay in responding. Unfortunately that isn't an option at this time. I'm slowly working on moving all my shared documents over to Dropbox, but these haven't been transferred yet. God bless!
