Hi, I’m Sara.
I’m here to open wide the doors of my heart and let you in on my joys, my struggles, my questions, and my life lessons. I invite you to pray and reflect along with me. Together, we can lift our mind and hearts to God, seeking to walk the path of holiness He sets before us.
Head over to the blog to read my latest thoughts, prayers, and inspiration.
P.S. I love when you comment. It warms my heart to know you’re there, reading along, and sharing this journey with me.
My blog began because of the encouragement of my sister. She knew my love for writing when I pray. My desire to enter into real conversation with God that went much deeper than memorized prayer.
So, many times, you’ll find me sharing what may seem like random thoughts.
These thoughts are a peek into my prayer life, as imperfect as it may be. A peek into my personal conversations with God.
I want to share these thoughts to inspire you to learn the art of prayer. To go deeper in your relationship with Your Savior. To get to know Him like never before.
My Mass Takeaway
Sunday is the Lord’s day… but how do we set it apart from every other day of the week? Sometimes, just by going to Mass for an hour in the morning, then business as usual.
But I decided I want more.
I don’t want to walk away from Mass and forget the readings, the homily, the grace I’ve been given through God’s Word and His very Body. I want to carry Him with me in my heart, truly devoting the day to loving Him.
We’re all called to sainthood. But sometimes we can forget this in our day-to-day life.
With the Virtue Challenge, we will renew our efforts to live our daily call to holiness and focus on one virtue to cultivate each month.
But you don’t have to do this alone!
You can also join the Virtue Challenge Team, a supportive Facebook community where we learn and pray together, lifting each other up and supporting each other in our call pursuing virtue and holiness.
While I don’t set out to be a mom blog, many times my personal meditations are centered around my vocation as a wife and mom.
When I feel others may be uplifted by those meditations, I let myself be vulnerable in my imperfection, and share them with you. I hope that you’ll look at me with a kind and forgiving heart when you read my parenting reflections.
And I hope that you’ll find some inspiration to try each day, like I do, to be more perfect in your vocation.
Marriage is my primary vocation.
I do my best to keep my husband first (after God, of course). To love him and support him in all his endeavors.
We’re a team. We pray together. We make family decisions together. We strive to treat each other with love and respect. We try to help each other draw closer to Jesus.
My husband and I are also an NFP (Natural Family Planning) teaching couple. We love to share our witness about this practice that has benefited our marriage so much.
I’ve been immersed in the darkness of depression. And through the grace of God, I’ve emerged, whole and healed on the other side.
But through my experience, I’ve realized what a stigma and silence there can be. The suffering of isolation and self-condemnation that comes along with this illness.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Through sharing my story, I want to offer you the same promise hope and healing I’ve found.
I’ve created some resources I think you’ll love as part of my ministry to help boost your prayer life.
Visit me on Etsy to buy prayer life products.
And stop by my printables shop any time for instant downloads (many of them are free!)
So Much More
There is so much more I want to share with you. To make sure you don’t miss a thing, sign up to join my mailing list.
I’ve got a busy life too, and I know how overwhelming email inboxes can be. So I promise not to spam you, or overwhelm you with messages.
But I WILL send you the best and most recent updates a couple times a month. I’m looking forward to this opportunity to connect with you more, and walk alongside you on the path to Heaven.
