Each year then the Lenten season comes around, I long to help my children grow in a deeper relationship with the Lord and truly understand his suffering.

Lately, I've found myself longing for a deeper, more consistent and meaningful prayer life. It felt impossible with the hours available in the day and I found myself at the end of the day, disappointed that I hadn’t prayed like I’d hoped.  Improving Personal Prayer Our gracious Lord understands our struggles.

So I prayed for help, guidance and direction, I brought my desires to the Lord and he showed me the way ..read more

This post went into details of body image anxiety, body changes they essentially hate themselves for, and how they can’t get past it. I read the post and comments and instantly felt sorrow for these woman. I didn't feel sorrow because I can relate…of course I can! I am in my late thirties, I have dealt with acne since adolescence, I have given birth & nursed six children, plus a number of other contributing factors.

Humility is something I truly strive towards for myself & for my children. But striving is just a nice way of saying I keep trying and failing. We all do... but sainthood happens because we KEEP trying. Are you unsure of what true humility looks like? Here are St. Josemaria’s 17 Signs…signs you too may be lacking in humility. Prayerfully reflect on these with me: 17 Signs of Lacking Humility > Thinking that what you do or say is better than what others do or say > Always wanting to get your own way > Arguing when you are not right or—when you are—insisting stubbornly or with bad ..read more

Recently got the idea to create a small space for our younger children to pray throughout the day. They needed a comfortable space to just be with the Lord. So with that in mind, gathered a few things from around our home & created a kid's prayer corner! Our playroom prayer corner turned out just perfect and our little ones love it!
