Why I Bail My Kids Out Sometimes

It’s such a hard thing figuring out what works best with parenting! And each family and child has different needs. While I don’t encourage the “helicopter parent” mentality, here’s why I think kids need you to give them mercy and intervene for them sometimes. When you are able. I recently spent a whole weekend with my cousins, mourning the loss of their beautiful godly mother. Each of them got up and shared how her constant, unconditional love and acceptance of them, even through their “rough spots”, affected them and changed them. It has made me think deeply about, what matters in the end, is love. My cousins, as grown-ups, have followed their mom’s example. They are humble, God-loving people that take care of others. I know there’s such a thing as tough love. But I also know God tends to show way more mercy to me always than I show on a daily basis.
And ultimately, we learn mercy by being shown mercy. (Micah 6:8)

Remembering Barbara Morgan

A most beloved mentor and spiritual mother to my husband and myself, Barbara Morgan, a professor we had the privilege of working with and for, while we were at Franciscan University of Steubenville, has recently passed away. Those of you who knew and loved her, I hope can smile, laugh, and cry with me as I remember her beautiful, holy soul. I was blessed to know her for a short time, but she remained forever in my heart and mind, leading me on to holiness.

What's a Saint, and Why Do We Have Them, and Why Do I Care?

Hey y'all this is a short video I made about the saints. They are our brothers and sisters in Christ cheering us on, whose lives inspire us on to holiness! I am so grateful for the family of God praying for me in heaven 💛
