Catholic Women Scopes: Periscope With Us!


Catholic Periscope Facebook Group


Periscope? Really? No way. That was the first thing that went through my head when I first heard about this live streaming app called Periscope. Not only did my phone at the time not support the app, but you couldn't even pay me to broadcast a live video of myself. I have a fear of public speaking and have a mild case of self-diagnosed social phobia.  


So what made me eagerly download Periscope and broadcast 4 live videos within the first week of getting my new phone? That would be the Catholic Women Scopes Facebook group

A Music Themed First Birthday Party!


This post contains affiliate links
Happy first birthday, little one! I wanted to share with you some pictures of my baby girl's Music themed birthday party. I chose this theme because she loves to dance even though she isn't even walking yet, and her favorite toys to play with are musical instruments, especially her keyboard!

Motherhood Monday #7: Motherhood Mindset



Today is the 6th week of the #MotherhoodMonday series hosted by "The Mom Who Blogs" of TheMotherBlog.com. 

The topic this week is Motherhood Mindset.

Motherhood has certainly required me to take on a new mindset. Raising a baby has made me aware of the enormous influence I will have on my children. They will go through an entire stage of imitating exactly what they see me do. 
So what will they notice me doing? What actions will they be imitating?

Lenten Blogging Hiatus


It is finally here....the season of Lent. This is a time to prepare our hearts for Easter through fasting, prayer, and almsgiving.  
This year, I want my Lenten experience to be life changing. I am ashamed and embarrassed to admit this, but for the past several years, I have abandoned my Lenten promises about a week into the season and entered into Easter unchanged and unprepared. 

I will not let it happen again this year. Lent 2016 will be my journey toward a richer more rewarding relationship with Christ...and this time, I can't afford to fail. Why? Because never has my faith life been more important than now. I gave birth to my first child one year ago and I had to face the reality that she will be watching me very closely! So will all of my future children! What example am I setting if they never see me making my prayer life a priority?
