A blog written by a mother of nine
whose children formed her spirituality
St. Francis of Assisi is one of the patron saints for this blog because he embodies simple joy , freedom, a child like spirit and self-deprecating humour. Just like Francis, I also discovered slowly how to let go of control and live in joyful simplicity.
This My Call
This is My Vocation
This is my Witness to the World
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, for me.-Galatians 2:2
I converted to Catholicism at 19 years old at university after Mary basically moved into my heart while I had a Protestant brain. If Mary lives in your heart and you have a hunger for the Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist, there is really nowhere else to go but the Catholic Church. I struggled for about ten years to resolve theological issues but I have always treasured Mary’s relationship with me.
.“Prayer is a surge of the heart, a simple look toward heaven, a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy” (St. Therese of Lisieux).
