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 am so right there with you! I thought my blog was going to be Catholic, and then I started subscribing to 'real' Catholic blogs and found out, 'HOLY MAN! I am not as Catholic as I thought.'

We are trying to up our Catholic too with more prayer time, men's groups, women's groups, adoration, etc. But I really love your emphasis on loving where you are at too! I get really sick of the self-doubt and self-criticism, and frankly it seems to me to be Satan-based sorts of negative messages anyhow.

You also are definitely not the only ones who struggle with NFP. Talk about a toughie... so do I want to have 10 kids, or do I want to 'cheat' a little?

So much to say, thanks for this awesome post, for being so relatable, and for 'getting' where I am at without knowing it!


Good post. I think we all question and search, not matter what our denomination. And as a non-Catholic who is hugely blessed by your prayer nights, thank you for keeping them open for us non-Catholics as well. :) Your faith and your willingness to listen to God and follow is an inspiration to me.


Oh, I have lots of thoughts in my head about this sort of stuff, lately. I keep coming back to the thing about God meeting us where we are. Where I am - not where I wish I were, or think I should be. Otherwise I get caught up in not knowing enough, or being enough, and comparing myself to people who know more, or believe more fervently. And all of that gets in the way of me doing anything, getting anywhere with all of this.

I think I'll file away the things you've said, too - "God said: let ME make you over." That resonates. That's all I'm doing these days. Picking the things that feel right, and going over them again and again, and seeing what I can make of it all.


I always love hearing your thoughts!
