When I grow up…As a girl the completion to this phrase always centered around my yearning desire to be a wife and mother. My romantic soul dreamed of finding that lasting love and starting my own little family. I simply gushed over romances and penned numerous letters to my future spouse.
Those dreams came true when the Lord led me to my wonderful husband, Tom, and we said “I do” on December 29, 2012. Almost a year later we were blessed with our sweet daughter and then her little brother came along eighteen months later.
Though not easy or glamorous, marriage and motherhood have undoubtedly been my greatest gifts in life because they continuously teach me the meaning of true love and sacrifice. Each day I am called to die to myself in some way, reflecting more closely God’s unconditional love. I stumble often, but God in his goodness picks me up and helps me begin again each new day.
Beyond mothering, I enjoy writing (hence the blog), reading (most especially the classics), and enjoying heart to hearts with loved ones. I’ve lived most of my life in Louisiana and would consider myself a southern girl through and through. I’m one of nine children, six girlsand three boys, so family gatherings are always loud and
boisterous. Currently, I stay busy between my job as a consultant writer for Catholic Stewardship Consultants, Inc., working online with my handful of students through Mother of Divine Grace School, and blogging. I’m grateful for each of these opportunities which allow me to continue using my professional and ministerial gifts while also remaining home with my two little people. I hope you will be encouraged by this small corner of cyberspace and that you will walk away feeling reinvigorated in your important calling.
