#WorthRevisit: Those Silly Online Quizzes

Time for another Wednesday #WorthRevisiting post.  I enjoy linking up at Reconciled to You, and reading what other bloggers have to share.  I decided to go way back today. In fact, this post was originally on my other blog, which is now dedicated to my stamping.  This was written in July 2014, just two months […]

He is Risen!

Happy Easter! It is getting late, but I just wanted to write a brief post.  I love Easter; I love all of Holy Week!  I was blessed to have a wonderfully full week with Church and family. I feel exhausted physically, but refreshed spiritually.  Not a bad combination. This morning I sang the Easter Sequence […]

Thank you, Indiana!

Today, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed into law a provision making it illegal to abort a child due to fetal anomalies such as Down’s Syndrome (as well as race or sex.) Indiana is only the 2nd state to do so, North Dakota being the other one. I am so excited to see this! And yet […]

#WorthRevisit: Arrivederci, Italia!

Time for another #WorthRevisit!  Most people are busy posting about Lent, and I do have thoughts in my head about this beautiful Holy Week, but today I am shifting gears.  In the fall of 2013, Bruce and I celebrated 20 years of marriage with a trip to Italy.  We saved up for a long time, […]

#WorthRevisit: Lion or a Lamb?

  Once again, I am participating in the Worth Revisiting Link-up found at Reconciled to You.  I did this last week for the first time, and truly enjoyed reading many other posts.  I also enjoy looking back on my own older posts.  This post is from March 2, 2015. ********************************************************************************************** You know the old saying […]

Laetare…Rejoice!

The 4th Sunday of Lent is Laetare Sunday.  Laetare means rejoice in Latin.  You see, we are just past the halfway point of Lent, so we begin to anticipate that Easter joy a bit more.  Here in the northern hemisphere, our days are getting longer…which I LOVE!  We will bump our clocks ahead one hour […]

#WorthRevisit: Divine Mercy

Today I am sharing a post from September of 2014. I am doing this as part of the link-up “Worth Revisiting Wednesday” at the blog Reconciled to You with Allison Gingras.  I have never participated in this link-up before, but today is the perfect day to do so.  You see, this post is about praying […]

Preparing for Lent

In just under a week, the Catholic Church (and others who use a liturgical calendar) will begin the beautiful season of Lent.  40 days of fasting, prayer, and alms giving, all with the purpose of growing close to Christ.  I realized, I better start getting my Lenten plan together. Of course, there will be the […]

My 2016 Spiritual Board of Directors

Happy New Year!  It has been quite a while since I have written anything.  I could blame it on the “holiday rush,” but that would be disingenuous.  I was just too scattered in my various projects…everything from making birthday and Christmas cards to writing new talks for some 2016 events to trying to stay healthy! […]

Advent & the Year of Mercy

I am excited to be starting a periodic column in The Catholic Post; the official diocesan paper for Peoria.  It is related to my work as PDCCW Evangelization Chair.  Here is a link to the issue.  My article is on page 17…something my husband has already shared on Facebook!  So grateful for his support!
