Why Do I Write Blog Posts?

I ask myself this question often. What makes sitting in front of my computer and organizing my thoughts a productive use of my time when the alternative activities for baby’s nap time (aka my recess) are: dishes, cleaning, sleep, a few episodes of The Office, reading, or catching up with a friend?

On Learning How To Wife

I’ll be honest, before I got married I thought being a wife looked pretty easy from the outside.

So here’s my thing. This week we’re also celebrating the 4th of July. This […]

He picked up one: Popes Against Modern Errors, Hard Hitting Condemnations of Many of Today’s Most Noxious Errors. It’s a book of 16 papal documents […]

Catholicism 101: Why Do Catholics Pray the Rosary?

You’ve seen them before, the mysterious strand of beads that Catholics have hanging from their rearview mirror. You wonder what kind of prayer could possibly require a necklace to pray? First of all, the rosary was never and is still not meant to serve as jewelry. If you’ve ever worn it as a necklace, you […]
