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

OMW I'm totally cracking up because that is something that would so happen to me. (One year, I gave my sister's family, who are not church-goers, the Nativity movie, because we love it. But I forgot it starts out with the mass slaughter of all the Jewish kids 3 years and under (they don't SHOW it, but it's implied) ... she was totally freaked out and I'm pretty sure they didn't finish the movie. OOOPS.)

Also, I'm so happy I can share with you the verse God gave me this morning! It was tucked into the middle of a section about Love in 1 John 3 and at first I thought for sure I read it wrong, but NOPE, I read the commentary and it really says what I thought it said. Check this out:

"for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything."

It's talking to believers, and basically says, yeah sometimes in our hearts we feel terrible about ourselves but GOD KNOWS BETTER because He sees us through the blood of the Lamb and in Him we are not condemned! I've been having a really hard time lately and just super needed to hear this. I'm so glad you are able to hear this from God now, after so many years of not really believing it. (know that feeling well, btw!)


We have a book of kid-friendly Bible stories, and I still find myself censoring things. I keep skipping Cain and Abel, and I freaked a little bit when we ready the creation story because the drawings, while completely censored, were clearly naked. I have no idea how to talk to my kids about faith and God. Christmas makes it a little easier, but again, Easter is a little tough with the suffering and death and all. But my kids have no interest in praying and my older one, who could use God's peace a lot in his life, just can't seem to grasp it right now, and it scares me. I grew up with all this stuff and just accepted it, but Sunday School isn't quite doing the job right now. Sigh.
