I 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.
