Starting at Home: Be the Change You Want to See

"And, if you are a spouse or parent, and the world is heavy right now, impacting your ability to be a kind, gracious, patient spouse or parent, this Catholic mom and blogger gives you permission to walk away from the negativity. Turn off the television, or turn it to Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood or reruns of Mr. Rogers. Walk away from social media for a while." In today's piece, I tackle the weight of the world - and share an important reminder of how our roles impact us... and, impact the world. Change starts at home.

"Yet, we aren't called to be perfect in our vocation. We are called to have dedication and perseverance in our vocation. We are called to recognize when we could do something better, and then put it into practice." It's "that time" in which I start to look forward to our next duty location, and how I can change things up. The last two weeks has crystalized an important lesson for me...

Being Intentional in Life’s Roles

"This particular song has resonated deeply within my soul. It isn't necessarily the words, but perhaps more the meaning behind the song." In today's piece, I explore how one secular song - has brought about some deep thoughts regarding being a wife and mother. And, I pose some questions we could all take a moment to ponder, regardless of being married or being parents. Are we all committed to enhancing our vocation - whatever it may be - to its fullest?

The Gratitude Project: Week Twelve

"Earlier this week, I wrote about two major milestones our family has undergone. And, while there has been an underlying element of grief throughout my life for the past couple weeks, as I prepared for these adjustments, my life has not come to a halt because of these changes." This week's Gratitude Project is all about finding the silver lining in the midst of the family changes! What are you grateful for this week?
