I’m Amy. My husband is Ben. I’m a mom to three beautiful daughters under six years old: Miss (5), Lass (4), and Sis (2). I used to be a prison/forensic psychologist, so I’m paranoid, and I don’t use my kids’ real names here.
I am a Catholic convert. I am a stay-at-home mom. I am in the very early days of homeschooling my girls. I love to read, write, cook, craft, and take lots and lots of photos. This blog is my way to document our life and share it with our family and friends. I also just love to write about being a mom, being a Catholic, and other various endeavors.
I used to be an atheist. For about 10 years I was a nonbeliever. Then in January 2013, I began a journey to learn about faith and religion, and ended up falling in love with the beautiful Catholic Faith. I entered the Church at the Easter Vigil in 2014.
I have been a blogger longer than I have been a Catholic, so my conversion is documented, in real time mostly, throughout my posts since March 2013. I’ve discovered that I love to learn about and to share about Catholicism, as I’m increasing my own understanding of it all the time.
This is my space to write about my family and my faith, post lots of photos, and tell plenty of stories about being a Mom. I try to write about motherhood in all its glory, including the beautiful times, the ugly moments, and even some of the humdrum in between. I try to find the humor in even the toughest times, and usually end up laughing at myself. I’m learning to find God’s grace in everything.
