Welcome Message

Welcome to my blog about Catholic life and family values.
This blog will center around the beauty of Catholicism and how to raise families, evangelize our faith, and fight the ongoing spritual battles that challenge us daily.

You are invited to share your wisdom on these pages with all the readers. Together we will address important life and faith issues and how to enhance our Catholic identity.

Key areas that you will find me addressing regularly will be about important Catholic doctrine and beliefs and how they help us raise strong Catholic Christian families. My hope is that you will learn, enjoy, and be challenged by my posts. You may be informed, amused, or even annoyed, but I hope it will in some way improve your Catholic faith.

New Year's Eve birthday

I've always loved my birthday, especially because it falls on New Year's Eve. Friends used to tell me that it must have been rough to have my birthday so close to Christmas.


It's great. I still receive cool presents, everyone celebrates on my day, and I'm very fiscally dated. PLUS...our family gives a birthday week, so I can use it over a two year period!

I've also recently taken a more spiritual look at my birthday. I guess that's what happens when you get older and wiser! It falls right in between the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ and the Solemnity of Our Blessed Mother. Now those are two of the greatest gifts I can ever receive! It is also a good reminder that another year has passed not only for me but for the world. One more year that was a gift from God and one day closer to eventually seeing Him. Another opportunity for prayer...

My wish for all my readers is for a glorious new year. And, don't forget tomorrow is a Holy Day of Obligation to honor Mary. See you at church!

Vivat Jesus,
