Prayer Life of a Working Catholic Momma

Prayer is tricky. OK, prayer is not tricky…finding time to pray is tricky. OK, finding time to pray is not tricky…making time to pray – that’s on me. Why, even in Lent, do I find it difficult to develop a discipline of prayer? I want to be the biggest pray-er. I want to visit with […]

Angelic Sweetness: A Virtue in the Work Place

Lent is DEFINITELY upon us, and the desert sands are burning a hole in my foot! Sometimes that desert for me is the workplace. With so much competition, pressure to succeed, and different personalities in the workplace, the virtue of angelic sweetness is a difficult one to practice. However, Lent is giving me many opportunities […]

And Sometimes the Kids Teach You

With the Lenten season upon us, I sense the deep desert already. From the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “This is why Christ vanquished the Tempter for us: “For we have not a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tested as we are, […]

Run and Tell That: All Part of the New Evangelization

One of the things I like most in the Bible is that there are so many Mary’s, and it seems as if Christ was close to them all.  It makes me wonder about my grandmother, Edna Mary.  Was she close to Him as well?  I mean, was her heart connected to His Sacred Heart?  She […]

Cheerfulness and the Leader

How often do we do something beautiful for God at work?  I mean, in the ordinary things we do at work, when we consciously think of God, and move forward with joy, and intentionally do our work with the idea that our work is something beautiful for Him?
