quick takes: award winning Edition!

April 26, 2013

{One} Remember when I was first nominated for the Liebster? And then when it made its way back to my blog twice in the same week? It is back again! This time the wonderful Nancy over at Joy Alive nominated me for it! At this point it feels a bit like playing telephone because the rules change…


quick takes: snowy Edition.

April 19, 2013

{One} Snow is beautiful. I love snow…in winter. NOT in the spring. I’m so over that I’m getting really cranky because the sun and the mountains disappear, and then I hear friends complaining because it is *only* 75 degrees where they are at. In one day we had 14 inches of snow at my house this…


quick takes: entering chaos Edition.

April 12, 2013

{One} First, pray for Jen (the host of Quick Takes) and her sweet baby! What a wonderful name Joseph Thomas is! {Two} I totally can’t shake the feel that I’m staring down the barrel of a chaotic gun. The next four weeks of my life include, but are not limited to the following events: three…


quick takes: exhausted Edition.

April 5, 2013

{One} Yup, the exhausted edition. I love Holy Week. I love Easter. It is such a liturgically rich time that I so enjoy…and yet this year it was chaotic. Working for the Church meant that more often than not I was working while I was attending the various services. Call me crazy but it is hard to focus…


quick takes: the oh-my-goodness Edition.

March 22, 2013

{One} This week has shown my how insane my life is. Working two youth ministry jobs, editing two Catholic blogging sites, writing for my own blog plus two other sites, editing the book, marketing the book, and trying to maintain a social life is…a lot. Oh, I have three Confirmation ceremonies coming up at two…


quick takes: new Pope!

March 15, 2013

{One} WE HAVE A NEW POPE! I literally started bouncing up and down when the white smoke poured out and could not sit down until he came out on the balcony, at which point I started crying! Not to mention the fact that when the “Adopt a Cardinal” website made its way around, I ended up with Cardinal…


quick takes: more Awards!

March 8, 2013

{One} I’m a huge fan of countdowns.  In case you haven’t noticed, I added a countdown on the sidebar to the release date of the book.  I’m saddened that it doesn’t count the days (yet).  In all honesty, I’ve avoided counting the days because I think it would freak me out a bit.  I’ve got…


quick takes: March!?

March 1, 2013

{One} Don’t forget to enter for your chance to win a free, signed copy of my book – due out MAY 14th!  Also, I have no idea how I managed to blog, write the book, do my job, and maintain a relationship last year.  I just started a new job last week so I’m working a few more…


quick takes: what a Week.

February 15, 2013

{One} If you don’t know by now that Pope Benedict XVI has resigned as pope, I’m fairly certain that you live under a rock.  I was at daily Mass when the priest said that he wanted to offer Mass for our Holy Father who had just announced his resignation and it took every ounce of…


quick takes: oh, Life.

February 8, 2013

{One} I’m starting out all self-promote-y.  Deal with it.  You should totally come join the hangout tonight at 8pm EST.  Three other awesome Catholic bloggers and I will be discussing “7 Ways to Engage in the New Evangelization” Basically, it is going to be an amazing event and you are invited for FREE.  Come check it…


quick takes: holy Buckets.

February 1, 2013

{One} I’m sure you are all dying to know whether or not the book proposal has been accepted.  In case you are new to the blog and have no idea what on earth I’m talking about, I’ve written a book.  To learn all about the book and the road to writing it and submitting proposals…
