Beautiful Examples of Mrs. Arlinghaus' Restoration Work

In the first episode of this new show for Season 4, host Wendy Haught is joined by guest Marlys Arlinghaus, a wife, mother, and Catholic statue restorer, for a look into establishing the centerpiece of the domestic Church, the home altar. Find out the basics of creating a home altar and how to adapt it to your particular circumstances--where to put it, how to outfit it, and ideas on where to find Catholic devotional items at reasonable prices.

In the second half of the show, Marlys shares her expertise on Catholic statue restoration, beginning with the wonderful story of how she got started doing it. She tells many fascinating anecdotes, gives encouragement to beginners, and shares tips for finding, repairing, and painting Catholic statues.

Finally, Marlys draws on her years of homeschooling and mothering experience to offer advice about encouraging creativity in children.

Pour yourself a cup of tea and join Wendy and Marlys at the kitchen table as they share the joy of being the heart of the home in the center of the domestic Church.
