The movie theater was dark. My mom and one cousin sat on my left and another cousin or two sat on my right. I was just four years old, but I will remember the next moments for the rest of my life. A little fish dove off of the gray ship into the ocean and … Continue reading A Lifetime of Calling, A Life-long Storyteller
I had been planning to write a Lenten reflection–– I still have it in drafts!–– but I just couldn't bring myself to finish it. This has been the Lentiest Lent ever and we don't need me to reflect on that anymore than all of us are already doing. Rare shots where homeschooling in our house … Continue reading Lovers in a Time of Coronavirus
So, I'm still here. Despite my long absence! I picked up a new job this summer (I'm the marketing manager now for Catholic Young Adult Sports) and the kids have been home and not in camps/lessons/playdates 80% of the time. Re-organizing and re-learning time management while small people jump all around you and you're also … Continue reading Time Efficiency WTF
I sometimes am asked (by my husband sometimes!) how much time it really takes me to write an article or post, what actually goes into writing one.

I'm writing weekly (plus … Continue reading Looking into the New Year
I have finally accomplished it, the novel is finally finished. At least in so far as I have a complete story, have cut out the useless parts, and have uploaded it all on to Wattpad. Of course now I will agonize over the crappy parts and edit the shit out of them. What will happen … Continue reading My Novel– FIN

I also consume a lot of media– television, movies, music, literature, news, podcasts; you name it and I've probably at least heard of it, if not … Continue reading The Social Media God or God in Social Media?
Over on Contemplatio Culture today, I share a poem I wrote (many years ago!) about sledding. May you all make beautiful winter, snowy memories 🙂
Hi, I know it's Wednesday and. not Tuesday and that that means I'm, yet again, behind on getting my next chapter up. But it's here! AND I ended up splitting up this chapter, too, so you'll get one more chapter from me! I'm the writing gift that keeps on giving (unless you think my novel … Continue reading This Damn Novel
Well, well, well. I hope you all enjoyed your days off with stuffing your faces full of food, liquor, and pie, and then sleeping off the tryptophan overdose for several hours. Perhaps you even ended up passing out on your aunt's landing while watching some movie about *checks notes* Australia?? while the kids debate whether … Continue reading A Very Norovirus Thanksgiving to None of Your Nor Your Loved Ones
