Let Him Serve You

Let Him Serve You

My husband – much like his father – gets things done on his own time schedule. If I ask him to fold the laundry or wash the dishes, he will do it, but perhaps not in the time frame I would desire. In certain instances this has been a struggle in our marriage because I […]

More Than A Picture

More Than A Picture

I’m not changing my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media profile pictures. There’s a thing going around in light of the Supreme Court decision last week to allow gay marriage in all states that people change their pictures to their traditional marriage. I’m not hopping on the bandwagon. First off, what about the single […]

To See and Love as Him

I can’t stop talking about my daughter. Well, I could, but I have absolutely no desire to. I want to take a zillion more pictures of her and show them off to anyone who will talk to me for more than a second. When she’s sleeping I want to watch her sleep, to soak up […]

On Family

Family, it seems, is an ever-changing concept in my world as of late. While it is always changing, it is also growing. In an obvious way, it grew when I got married. Before I had no one I could call “sister” in that sense, and now I have two sisters. I’ve got cousins and family […]

My Husband Isn’t Trained

My Husband Isn’t Trained

My husband isn’t trained to pause his video game and come downstairs to greet me when I get home after a long day. My husband isn’t trained to take out the trash. My husband isn’t trained to put his dishes in the dishwasher and set it to run. My husband isn’t trained to pray with […]

Learning Patience

{Warning: I mention miscarriage in this post – not mine – but it comes up.} There we were, waiting in the waiting room. Waiting rooms make me nervous. I’d rather sit in my car until its my turn and then just go straight into the appointment. Doctor, dentist, ultrasound, doesn’t matter, keep me out of […]

Passing On Motherhood

I’ve always loved my mom. It could be that hindsight is 20/20, but I don’t remember my teenage years being awful. My mom and I had our spats, but on the whole I think we got along fairly well. Even in college – halfway across the country – we’d have our tiffs, but at the […]

The Beggar In Me

I’ll be honest, more often than not when I pass a homeless person or someone begging on the side of the road I give them nothing more than a smile. Maybe, just maybe, if I happen to have extra food in my car and the light doesn’t change, I’ll give them of my excess, but […]

To The Mothers In Church

Dear Moms who bring their kids to daily Mass, Church, adoration, and other church-ly activities, Thanks. Thanks for being an inspiration to women like me who are getting ready to start our own little screaming, crying, talk-whenever-they-want, make-all-kinds-of-bodily-noises brood. The fact that you bring your one (or seven, or somewhere in between) children to daily […]

It Isn’t Mine

It Isn’t Mine

There is a tendency in ministry to talk about what we do as “ours” or “mine”. I’ve fallen into that trap more times than I can count. My ministry is growing or my program has seen much change and improvement. Wrong. This ministry I’m blessed to work with isn’t mine. It is God’s – He just lets me be […]

Now, Make Your Act of Contrition

Now, Make Your Act of Contrition

My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you, whom I should love above all things. I firmly resolve, with Your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. […]

Submission Does Not Mean Losing Your Voice

Submission Does Not Mean Losing Your Voice

Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord. -Ephesians 5:22 I used to think that being submissive or subordinate meant that you didn’t have a say in anything, and that, in essence, you lost your voice. No wonder, then, that Ephesians 5 gets such a bad reputation and is so highly quoted […]
