img_4640-editI am a Catholic wife and mother who is a devoted patriot and a selfish, self-obsessed sinner in desperate need of redemption.  For six years I have blogged on the wisdom of the ages as offered by our brothers and sisters in Christ who have shared their hearts and minds for our spiritual benefit.  My commentary has been featured and shared on National Catholic Register, Catholic Exchange and Big Pulpit, and I have contributed to study and leaders’ guides for The Augustine Institute, which “serves the formation of Catholics for the New Evangelization.” Additionally, I have been a guest on EWTN Live, EWTN Bookmark, The Busted Halo Show, The Son Rise Morning Show, EWTN Morning Glory and On Call with Wendy Wiese, among others. You can find our book club discussions at spiritualdirection.com. My first book is How to Read Your Way to Heaven – A Spiritual Reading Program for the Worst of Sinners, the Greatest of Saints, and Everyone in Between, published by Sophia Institute Press.

    Dear Vicky,

    After reading your interview with Brandon Vogt on your new book “How to read your way to heaven”, I knew exactly that this was the kind of tools I was desperately looking for a long time in France where I live.

    Starting your reading program on Pentecost 2017, I completed Year 1 last week: it changed everything…

    The bible is always at hand, the catechism has become my biggest ally in discussing and sharing with catholics and non-catholics, finally the books you recommended have helped me answering many questions I was struggling with as a catholic.

    Your program makes us fall deeper and deeper in love with the Catholic Church (my husband confirms that this is the best thing what can happen to us).

    Can’t wait starting with Year 2, be blessed for helping people like me getting to the next level!



    1. Catherine,
      What a beautiful note! I am so thrilled to hear that you have are moving on to Year Two!! Our God is so good and the gift of His Mystical Body, The Church, is beyond words! You use the word “deeper” in your email – I could not think of a more perfect word to describe the effect these resources can have on our faith! They absolutely help us to delve more deeply into His truth, and ultimately to fall more deeply in love with Him. Thank you so much for your kind words. May everything you read draw you closer to Christ.
      God bless you!

    Just wanted to let you know, I just found your blog and I am looking forward to participating in the book club. I am a recent Catholic convert, homeschooling mom and your article “When your family doesn’t measure up” brought tears to my eyes. You are so right and this will always be a struggle. Once a homeschooler always a homeschooler and I needed the verification today from your blog. THANK YOU.
