Here you'll find current musings, as well as the archives from two blogs of yesteryear: YoungMarriedMom and What I Learned While Writing a Novel. Please comment and share. We love well when we are in conversation with one another.
One of my favorite parts of what my writing has become is reviewing books. I’ve been writing about books for a couple of years now, for CatholicMom.com, Verily, Aleteia, and more. Since books make GREAT gifts, I’m compiling the book reviews I’ve written thus far to help you give a meaningful gift to someone you love.
Note: Links to books are affiliate links, which means I may earn a small commission when you purchase through them. This is at no cost to you, but it helps pay for this site! Thanks!
