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

Oh Maggie! Me TOO! This whole post is exactly what I've been struggling with the past 6 months. I was all set to orchestrate a way to have our family live abroad for a year or two (my husband's only stipulation was that our youngest must be potty-trained)....And then I found out I was pregnant and couldn't even tell anyone (because I was DONE with babies) and then at 9weeks I miscarried.
And now of course our youngest is potty trained and I've already told the world (including my dentist - who even tells their dentist these kind of hopes and dreams??) that we'll be moving abroad.
But my husband and I went to reconciliation and spiritual direction and we keep hearing God telling us NOT YET.
I love how you have shared this post so that now I can ask God how he wants me to use my time. Because clearly I am lost and I hate waiting but I do trust in Him.
P.S. Look at how God blessed you with the donations flooding in for IRC??? When we are obedient the grace just flows!

I love this. I want to ask God what He wants me to do, but here's where I get stuck: I don't know what his answer is. I mean, how do you know when God says, "Nope, don't do that" or "Hold off, young lady" or "Go ahead, this is where you need to be" ?? This is something I've always struggled with- I haven't ever felt or heard the will of God clearly in my life so I'm always stuck wondering if it's just my own inner voice I'm hearing in the back of my head. What are your thoughts?
