What I Have Been Writing

Greetings, readers! This school year has been one of transition for our family. We shifted all of our children into our parish Classical Catholic school and I have been devoting my daytime hours to my intellectual life and my afternoons and evenings undivided to family life. It has been overall a good family transition as I have been exploring how God is calling me to use my gifts in my home and for the Church. I have been loving my quiet time, including more time for prayer, jumping late onto the sourdough bandwagon, and reveling in motherhood when my children are home.

The Fall semester was full of reading St. Edith Stein’s Essays on Woman and participating in a reading group. In addition to my reading, I wrote several features for the National Catholic Register and worked on Content and Theological editing for Blessed is She. I have been also working with my mother on her memoirs as she is going through the process of moving towards her final home of heaven from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

This next semester, I hope to continue writing articles and have been revising a book for which I hope to find a publisher soon. My resolution for this year is to share my articles more frequently with you all through this website.

In the meantime, here is a list of the most recent articles I have published on the NCRegister (in case you have not seen them yet!):
