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 love your writing here because I think church-wise we are similar in that I'm Protestant with Catholic leanings, but your gusts are so different from mine (I stink at prayer, and I have no idea at the moment where God is leading) that you provide a much needed alternate viewpoint. You also helped me to cement my views on homosexuality by saying you'd rather err on the side of love. All that to say, I'd love to read anything you write about faith.


Everything you say about being Catholic? That's why I like reading you. I'm a Catholic who loves charismatic worship with Protestants and I don't fit in with a lot of the Catholic mommy bloggers I read. I only hope I can someday get over my social anxiety and introversion and embarrassment (are people looking at me? Am I saying something stupid?) to get to the point where I can say I'm chasing the Holy Spirit, too.


I've been wondering whether your other blog post was intended as a farewell. I'll miss seeing you write there, but have to admit that this blog has become my favorite of yours over the past year or two. I have intended to comment so many times to tell you how much I enjoy it but am usually reading from my phone and then promptly forget to do it once I'm on a computer.

I was raised in an observant Catholic family and have explored other religions and ways to feel connected spiritually as an adult. While I am not an observant Catholic now, in my heart I think the church will always feel like my spiritual home. Seeing you find a way to stay rooted in Catholicism while connecting with aspects of other religions is very reassuring and inspiring to me. I love reading what you write here and really hope you keep sharing!


My husband - of all people - literally just asked me last night: Whatever happened to Maggie Cheung's blog? Why doesn't she write anymore?

I too have fallen away from blogging as much lately because I am not as courageous in my faith journey as you are.

For The Love of God PLEASE do NOT stop sharing your faith journey with us. Your story is one of my most favorites to read and ponder and enjoy. You help me be a bit more courageous in my real life. You have a true gift in writing and sharing your faith. Do not quit!
