When you feel like the littlest of flowers

I’ve never had a great devotion to St. Therese of Lisiuex whose feast day is celebrated today in the Catholic Church.  Sure, she has an incredibly interesting backstory.  Yes, she’s known to have been incredibly pious.  She’s one of only four women Doctors of the […]

Catholic Books I Don’t Want to Read Because I’m a Wuss

Catholic Books I Don’t Want to Read Because I’m a Wuss

Honestly, the actual title of this post should be “Catholic Books I Really Should Read Because They’d Make Me a Better Human.” Of course, that’s they way of things, isn’t it?  We tend to avoid what might push us out of our comfort zones, no […]

August Reads: Simply Miraculous

It’s time for some August Reads, friends!  Now, let’s be honest.  Some months are better than others when it comes to the quality of books I read.  Sometimes I share with you nothing but a rash of historical fiction.  Sometimes, I’ll even admit to starting […]

July Reads: Two Heavy Hitters

Only two books on the July Reads list?  Say it isn’t so!  Yes, friends.  I only got around to reading two books this month, but they were both heavy hitters in their own rights.  One was an historical fiction novel that’s on all the must-read […]

Spring Reads: Slightly Inspired and Moderately Good

Well, if that title for this Spring Reads post didn’t just grab you by the eyeballs and pull you in, I don’t know what will! Let’s just suffice it to say that the absolute reading bender that I went on in March totally sobered up […]

It Was An Easter Vigil Miracle

It Was An Easter Vigil Miracle

As much as I believe in their existence, I can’t say that I’m always on the lookout for miracles.  However, this past Saturday night as we celebrated the Easter Vigil, a miracle was on the lookout for me. Now, you may read this story and […]

Humility Doesn’t Equal Self-Deprecation

Humility Doesn’t Equal Self-Deprecation

If there is one thing about my inner monologue that needs to change, it’s self-deprecation.  For how long have I thought that being humble, showing humility was all about putting myself down?  Or denying what is true and good about myself? Have you done that?  […]

2018 – The Good Parts Version

In an effort to not end the year in a total buzzkill of a hormonal funk (see previous post), I’ve decided that my last blog post for 2018 should be nothing but good stuff.  It’s time to shake off the grinchy green and feel a […]
