WELCOME! Here is my not-terribly-eloquent attempt to grow closer to God via... blogging. Unfortunately for you, I'm not sure what that means either. I guess we'll find out!

I'm 30 years old, married to an IT Guy and a stay-at-home-mom to two spectacularly gorgeous children. While we attend Mass on Sunday mornings, I spend the entirety of the Eucharistic Prayer focused on making sure the baby uses her crayons on the bulletin, not the pew

I remember being 'on fire' during a resurgence of faith during my 2nd year of University. I remember thinking "faith will ALWAYS be like this." Unrealistic expectations, much? It's no wonder that my reversion faded over time, then waxed and waned for a few years.

Adult faith is much more of a slow burn for me, but it's much deeper. I have periods of dryness, but there are moments of unexpected joy even in the midst of that. Little nuggets of sweetness, moments when my soul just sings. I hope that despite the dryness, you are still being blessed with those moments. xo


I'm not feeling it right now, either (at my charismatic church, even!) Even worse, due to newborn sleep deprivation, I often fall asleep during the sermon. Oops.


No, its not just you. Before kids I was very involved with churchy committees and events and felt connected and fulfilled at mass. Not so much lately - probably because I hardly get a chance to listen/reflect on the readings/sermon because I'm focused on having my girls sit still and stop touching each other. And now its worse since our energetic pastor retired. Going to church is mostly blah and making sure one (or both) girls isn't flashing the congregation.

BUT - I must say I am getting excited about my girls starting at the Catholic school in a few weeks. Still have a few months before baby three shows up, plenty of time to join a school committee to make new connections and hopefully rekindle living my faith.


Would I be remiss to say that this reminds me of the Chris Rock bit where he says the number one sign you are in a good relationship is that it's boring? Ehh...grasping at straws. Hope you get your flashing signs soon. :)
