-if you’re looking for a wood rosary that is not dedicated to St. Joseph, send me an email at and let me know what center piece you want swapped in!-

In the unlikely event that this rosary should break, simply gather all the beads you can find and email me. You only pay for shipping and the replacement of missing parts; major beads and the medals.




St. Joseph, the husband of Mary, watched over and protected the Holy Family through Jesus’ childhood. As a carpenter he provided for his family through the same kind of daily grind that we go through. That hidden life that no one really sees.

What is your hidden life like? As you pray this rosary, unite your daily struggles and joys with Joseph and Mary.

And remember that in every moment of Joseph’s hidden life, Jesus, the God of the universe, was with him. He allowed Joseph to teach Him carpentry – even though He had invented the trees themselves – and worked along side him. And when Joseph died, Jesus continued his work until He began the work of His Father in Heaven.

It’s interesting, fitting, that Jesus chose to be a carpenter when He knew what kind of death He would have – nailed to a wood cross. With each stroke of the plane did He mediate on His death?

Immerse yourself in your hidden life and realize Jesus is just as close to you as He was to Joseph. He dwells in your heart with its every beat.


This rosary, unlike my other rosaries, is made with wood, so it is rather light. However, if you decide on the large version, the crucifix is hefty and will add that weight back in.

The wood is sandalwood which smells AMAZING. And will remain for years (or that’s what they say).

The large rosary is 20.5in long while the small version is the standard 16in long.

The rosary is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors, so it is super strong and will last a lifetime of use. While I do strength test every rosary, it is still a handmade piece and prone to human error. So, should it break, simply gather all the beads you can find and contact me and I’ll gladly repair it for you for free sans shipping and the replacement of major beads (if you loose the spacers, don’t even worry about it).

The beading wire stretches slightly as it is used (this is normal – it wears in like good leather boots) so you will still be able to slide the beads along as you pray.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
