My hands were shaking, but I am not quite sure why. I quit my job, I am not sure where I am. I am not yet a full-time mother, not yet a professional writer, but somewhere in between. I sat in the pew while I watched my family from the other side of the church.… Continue reading The Better Part
I’ve had three cups of coffee and an overpriced latte from Starbucks. I spent the day taking care of my youngest who has hand, foot, mouth (no not mad cow disease). As the days wind down until I hand over my career to the creator of the universe, I am more at peace than I… Continue reading Why Personal Branding is not very Christian of you
The shoes were not quiet. I scurried into the 8 am mass wondering what I was doing there. Earlier in the morning, God told me I wouldn’t be praying that early morning rosary; that it would be prayed at a later time. But it’s day 53, I thought. When would I have the time?

Right where you are
One idea sparks another. Your writing and God inspired stories touch my soul. They provide wisdom and truth and open up doors. The likes and comments are human features, it’s the words and conversation that stirs my soul. I oftentimes find myself writing about God’s gifts and calling. It has been a sort of obsession… Continue reading Yes, you are here for a reason, but it’s not what you think: Why am I here?
“Work is Prayer too.” (Thank you Br Andrew Efo) He is the man without property or home who has no place to lay his head (Mt.8:19, Lk 9:58, From Jesus of Nazareth by Pope Benedict XVI, which I highly reccommend) Have you found Jesus yet, Gump? I didn’t know I was supposed to be looking… Continue reading The shore
