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 think what you're doing is wonderful. Whatever it is, whatever it becomes, it's amazing that you've stepped into this unknown and provided a space for yourself and others to walk down a path together. I wish I could be there to be a part of it.

I just went to my first prayer group last week, one that prays for everyone at my kids' school. I was so nervous walking in, having never done anything like this before (well, maybe in college). They made me feel welcome and I soon realized that if I wanted to say something, I could, but if I didn't that was OK, too, and that helped so much. We had some sort of loose guide someone printed off the internet, but it really didn't matter much. We prayed for each other's children, and I hope the other ladies felt something like I felt, that my kids were loved and being bolstered up by people they didn't even know. I was grateful to have the guts I needed to go in the first place. That you are putting such a thing together and being the leader that is needed right then, right there, that's incredible. I am so grateful for your example, and I hope it continues to grow and be everything you need it to be.

I'm rambling now, but I just can't find the right words I want, so I'll just say you're awesome, this is cool, and I'll send some prayers your way, too.

This is EXACTLY what I wanted. What I love about this is that you've found people who trust you enough to come and be lead. When we first moved down here, we had a solid group of friends who could always be relied upon to show up at whatever crazy party we threw in costume and committed to the theme. And we did the same in return. Now, I know a silly party < serious prayer meeting, but it's the trust and commitment that feels the same to me.

Oh! I have been meaning to tell you! I am taking a four-week prayer class ("class?" it's something like a class) at church and one of the first weeks they passed out cars with the Prayer of Examen on it and it was all about how we should REMEMBER our day and notice our FEELINGS about all the parts of our day, and then pray from those FEELINGS (even the hard ones) and the whole thing made me think of you.

(Also I have been doing it, and I am a little bit cynical but also must admit I do not hate it.)

So proud of you for jumping into prayer nights! I'm so glad you tried it and have stuck with it. Sounds like you are blossoming! I would be there if I had a magic transporter to beam me to Seattle.

Also I completely relate to this: "Ask me a few days later what I think about something, not right that second."
