Faith Folders for Catholics
LapbooksTM With the Catholic Family & Classroom in Mind
"Lindy Meyer is a busy mother and active parishioner at Our Lady of Perpetual Help
Parish in Concordia. She has developed a very practical tool which parents and catechists
will find helpful as a supplement to their catechetical programs. I am grateful
for her initiative in designing these Faith Folders for Catholics."
In the Works:
What is a Faith Folder?

What is a Lapbook?TM
A lapbookTM is a tool used to showcase and consolidate material studied and learned on a given topic. A lapbookTM is created from a file folder, refolded to create a book which can be held in the lap. Many different mini-books and other special projects are then stored and displayed in the lapbookTM. LapbooksTM can be used for science, social studies, phonics, religion and so much more. The possibilities are endless!
What are Faith Rings?
Faith Rings are a new product available from Faith Folders for Catholics. Each ring holds a set of laminated cards on a variety
of faith based topics. Examples include Catholic Prayers, Ten Commandments and Works of Mercy. These are sold as a finished product
that will be shipped to the customer.

I have been blessed with such a beautiful family. My husband, Tony, and I have six children: George, Isaac, Erin, Laura, Elizabeth, and Clare. Ranging in age from 16 to 5 years old. We live in rural Kansas and have been married for 17 years. Passing on the faith has always been top priority for Tony and I as parents. Our children currently attend a Catholic School about 30 miles from our home and we’ve also dabbed into homeschooling for a time. Much to my children’s dismay I love having “school” at home when they have days off. It’s during this time that we discovered lapbooksTM.
A friend and I were first exposed to lapbooksTM through the Little Flowers Girls Club. Many of the moms there mentioned lapbooksTM and we were curious. Several Google searches later, we were drawn in to the lapbookingTM world. There are so many great resources and even free lapbooksTM on the internet but we were disappointed that we weren’t finding any Catholic lapbooksTM. This good friend mentioned the numerous possibilities and topics for lapbooksTM related to the Catholic faith...and here we are.
After beginning this new endeavor, I discovered the term lapbookTM was actually trademarked. Thus came the term Faith Folders. This is really quite appropriate as our lapbooksTM are based on the Catholic Faith and are for the purpose of spreading the Faith.
My sister, Dee, has been a great blessing through all of this. If you've seen my booth at a conference, you've likely met Dee. She has been a great help in numerous ways. She is a treasure!
When putting together the Faith Folders, I use the New St. Joseph Baltimore Catechism Series, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Faith & Life Series from Ignatius Press and the St. Joseph Edition of the New American Bible and other great Catholic books.
As a mom of 6, my spare time for such projects is limited. This is very much a work in progress. I welcome your input and suggestions so feel free to contact me.
I am also very thankful to my beautiful family for their patience, support and help in keeping this ministry and business venture going. They are my inspiration.
God Bless and thanks for looking at my site.
