My New Book – Don’t Forget About Me

My dear readers, I have some exciting news to share with you..

I wrote my first book!

In this quick read, you will learn a little more about me, and be comforted that you are not alone in the trials of life. It is my hope that you will leave reading the book inspired and with a renewed sense of hope.

Interesting facts:

  • The title is close to one of my favorite 80’s songs by the band Simple Minds. I chose this because the book is about me learning not to forget myself in my journey of loving and serving others.
  • I drew all the art on the cover. Each symbol represents something about me. For example, people who have inspired me, and hobbies I have like reading.

Below you will find a link to my book as well as be able to see a preview of it. It’s available on kindle, or paperback. Please enjoy!

When it comes to discipline, sometimes I’d rather ignore the behavior or prevent the situation from happening by having the T.V. on. Hey, I’m being honest. Here’s what the Catechism of the Catholic Church has  to say about discipline: Continue reading “Reflecting on Lent: Stature, Wisdom, and Grace”

My Lenten Focus

I read something on a blog recently that struck a chord. A woman with young children was talking with a friend about her list of things to do for Lent and her friend interrupted her and said “You live Lent.” Ha! This made me realize that I can be overzealous when it comes to all the ways I want to grow spiritually and that maybe JUST MAYBE I should be a little more realistic and gracious with myself. So for Lent, I’ve decided what I need most is to live my vocation joyfully, peacefully, and diligently.
