The youngest of 16, Bridget Green is a Catholic, wife, and mother to six children. After being homeschooled through high school, she attended Seton Hall University where she earned a Bachelors degree in English and Religious Studies (with a concentration in the Christian Tradition) and minors in Latin and Catholic Studies. Currently, she and her family live in her hometown of Newark, NJ. When not busy with homeschooling her own growing brood and otherwise caring for her family, she writes about it all at her blog, Life at Le. Rheims.
Recently, I was given the opportunity to review a copy of Witnesses to Mystery, a lavish coffee table style book written by Grzegorz Gorny with photographs by Janusz Rosikon.

Children are great mimics. I usually remember this, unfortunately, a few moments after I’ve blurted out something that was, probably, not the best thing for my kids to hear.

My husband and I have 7 children, 6 of whom we are blessed enough to be raising together (the seventh being already in heaven). We live, all eight of us, in a 900 square foot apartment. There’s no yard, no basement, only one bathroom, and a kitchen the size of a shoe box. Living here, […]
Recently, my husband and I didn’t attend a wedding. This has happened more than once in the past few years. We keep getting invited to weddings and not being able to attend. There were no prior engagements or sick children. We just couldn’t, in good conscience, attend. I could say it hasn’t been easy, but […]
