We love the children’s garden in Little Lost Nun, with its peg doll saints and nuns in procession. We wanted to extend the joy of the little lost nun by bringing you a peg doll with her own little icon, but when we looked around for a suitable icon of the Raising of St. Tabitha, we could not find one. We commissioned this digital icon from iconographer Elina Pelikan. You can print out the mini version on card stock or postcard paper to supply your little nuns or children’s prayer area with tiny icons to revere, or print out the postcard for a print to include in your family prayer corner. Make sure to follow us on Instagram for updates on how to build a children’s prayer garden in your home!
