Sowing_in_Chinawal_1

Lately, the readings of the liturgical cycle have been focusing on the parable of the sower. And since last week was Natural Family Planning (NFP) Awareness week, I wanted to follow up with some reflections on sowing the seed of NFP.

Bonding Bucket List

Bucket_list_20054800529

The other night my husband and I were discussing our bucket lists. Mine went something like this: go to the Grand Canyon, go to the Sand Dunes, go on a cruise, travel to Europe…
His bucket list was a little different: go heli-skiing, go skydiving, go parasailing, get a motorcycle…
Since I am deathly afraid of heights and he gets motion sickness, it doesn’t sound like we will be accomplishing many of our bucket list items together.

Jesus-Christ-from-Hagia-Sophi_20170622-205207_1

Marriage Advice from the Trenches

Marriage Advice from the Trenches

All I knew is that I loved my husband and we would be starting an adventure together.

Praying While You Work

Praying While You Work

My 5-year old son was standing quietly watching me steam clean our floor one evening, which I just figured was amazing in itself since I do it so infrequently. But after a few minutes he said, “Hey mom, if you say a prayer and then steam comes out, then your prayer can rise to heaven on the steam.” I was floored (pun intended) that he would make such a connection between work and prayer. “Yes,” I replied,  “Steam cleaning the floor can become a prayer to God!”
