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

Maggie. This is beautiful. And the truest true.


Make it six children and I could have pretty much written this. Hang in there. :)


I'm so sorry things are so hard right now. The good news is that you're still longing for that connection somewhere in your soul and you can even think in those terms to type this out. Some days I just feel like I've totally given up on recapturing the relationship with God that I once had. I still want it, but I am so overwhelmed by my daily life that I don't even know how to go there. If I tried I'd fall asleep or get distracted. And I agree, church with kids is hard. Almost why-bother hard. I keep hoping that despite the misery it will sneak into their existence and they'll know someday they need to be there. And if it makes you feel any better, I am totally failing at feeding my family. My son has Celiac disease so we can't even go out to eat easily, and half the time I get halfway through the day and realize I have no plan for dinner and half of those times I get home and want to give up. And yet I can't bring myself to read recipe books because no one in my house (except me) likes much of anything that's in most recipes. I know I can't give up, and I should take initiative to find more things that will work, but it's just TOO HARD right now. And I have no idea why. I think we all get in funks for one part of life or another and it just has to suck for a time. Hope yours breaks soon. Sorry I'm babbling...but just know you're not the only one.
