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

Overjoyed to hear you have a babysitter and a date for your prayer gatherings! I have a feeling it will quickly become a regular event that both the grown-ups and kiddos will be excited about.


I think sometimes when life gets busy it's easy to see even the things we love to do as obligations we HAVE to do. Maybe this is just a busy season in your life and that's why church is hard right now.

I think your prayer nights sound awesome. And even though I am a terribly lazy commenter I love it when you post here about your fake protestantism and it just makes me want to be FRIENDS with you. (I'm presbyterian, which is very, errm, liturgical. So I also often feel like a fake protestant.)


Just saying hi.


Love this post. I've been thinking a ton about this lately. I have such a hard time accepting that anyone loves me just for who I am. God, Daniel, even the kids, most days. I think for people who like to accomplish things and "do" things, it's hard to understand being loved just for who we are.

Love that song too. I generally refuse to stand up during worship at church, but that one gets me.


LOVE that song. We sing it at church and I go all Pentecostal, hands lifted, tears pouring down my face. It's just so. miraculous to be able to say "Here in the power of Christ I'll stand."
And I love your intentionality of just letting your love and adoration of Christ shine in front of your kids - they will take note, believe me. (17 year old and I were just talking about this very thing yesterday!)
