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

Wow, that is quite a story. A few things popped into my head while reading that. 1) I think we all feel like, "What impact can I really have? How can I ever make a REAL difference?" They certainly did. 2) The willingness of those people to accept Christ is such a contrast to attitudes in developed countries. They touched on it near the end of the article, but it goes to show that those who have nothing have nothing to lose when they follow Christ. We're so caught up in our lives and possessions and it's just one more thing to take our time and energy...but for them, it might be all they have and the one thing that can improve their world. Never thought about it quite like that before. 3) There is such a fine line between faith and irresponsibility. Going out and buying food and trucks without money took a lot of faith, and it worked out, thank God. But if it hadn't...I don't know...I can see it giving the Christians a bad name, you know? They can't pay their debts, etc. I'm thankful they were hearing so clearly from God and it worked out, but man...that's a little scary.

Oh, and thanks for the heads up on the NEEDTOBREATHE song. I am seeing them in concert in two weeks and I have been lazy about getting their new album...but based on that song I think it'll be a good one.
