    Hi, Lacy!
    I’ve been following your posts and ideas for a while, and there have been a TON of things I’ve used over the years, but I’m stuck on this idea of putting up a home altar.
    What can I do to make it accessible for my older kids (like have books, Rosaries, etc.), but out of our little kids’ destructive reach? Super glue? Hang things from the ceiling? I’ve had so many statues destroyed, Holy Water from special places spilled (or drank!), etc. that I’m truly at a loss. Thoughts?

    • Hi Sara –

      Would it work in your house to have a home altar on a mantle or a shelf? It doesn’t have to be on a table, so maybe you could find an area that is high enough that your older kids can see it and reach it but that your younger ones cannot.

      Good luck!
