• History is being made right now, as I type this! The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage, which started on May 18th is on the move and the momentum is undeniable. Four routes are making a literal cross across the United States, all coming together on July 17th in Indianapolis for the first National Eucharistic Congress in 83 […]

  • What do motivational posters, charismatic preachers, and embroidered pillows have in common? They regularly tell us to count our blessings. If we’re in the midst of a good day, we’d probably admit it would take a long time to count all our blessings. Maybe even longer than it would take to count all the seeds […]

  • I’ve never been an atheist. But I’ve certainly been a skeptic, especially when it comes to the Catholic Church. I went to Catholic school up to 8th grade before transitioning to a public high school. It gave me a foundation, but I didn’t own my faith. Religion was just another class, like science or math […]

  • I remember it clearly. I was about five years old. My parents were watching a Christian TV program (on our console television set, the one with the dial channel changer). The subject being discussed was the Holy Ghost. Yikes! The Holy Ghost?! 👻 This got my attention!! I sat on our family room floor, our […]

  • On a visit to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion about an hour north of Sheboygan, my son Ben and I were marveling at the fact that the chapel had relics of each of the original Apostles (minus Judas, of course).  In the Catholic Church, a relic is a fragment of the body […]

  • I made it thirty-seven years as a coffee virgin. It may have been our third child that pushed me over. While I’m hardly a connoisseur, I am now a fan. I’ve always been a fan of companies that embrace good design and have a sense of humor. So I was delighted to discover Catholic Coffee, […]

  • The kids and I watched the livestream of the Rite of Ordination of Priests held today at The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Milwaukee. Nine men were ordained!  (This happens to be the biggest ordination class for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in 30 years, Praise the Lord!) Oh MY, what a beautiful gift it […]

  • Sixteen years ago I celebrated my first Mother’s Day, being just a few months pregnant with “Uncle Ben” (this was our funny little nickname for the baby I carried). When I first learned I was pregnant, the website said the baby at this early stage was the size of a piece of rice. This inspired […]

  • As a work-at-home, homeschool Mom, who runs a business with her husband, I’m always in search of peace. ALWAYS! Plus, as an Enneagram 9w8, I’m a bit of a peace junkie. I literally can’t get enough. You’ve heard of “Tuesdays with Morrie”? We have Tuesdays with Jesus. … in Eucharistic Adoration. 🙏🏻 (Not familiar with […]

  • The movie Unsung Hero is a true story about a family who lost everything and moved from Australia to the United States in search of opportunity.
