This devotional is uniquely Catholic in that the meditation is based on the daily readings for the Mass, called the Lectionary. But you don't have to be Catholic to find a home here! Click on 'Today's reading' for the lectionary link to read the bible readings, then click the back button and spend a few minutes with the meditation. Relax! This is your time, well deserved, much needed, and holy. Let all the things you "should be doing" melt away and bask in the presence of your God who loves you!

Before we begin, let us pray,

Father, you created me and put me on earth for a purpose. Jesus, you died for me and called me to complete your work. Holy Spirit, you help me to carry out the work for which I was created and called. In your presence and name - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - I begin my meditation.

Here we go!

Okay, here I go. The Holy Spirit has drug me into yet another adventure. I'm hanging on because when He gets going, there is usually a fun ride ahead. My dream is to have a place for Catholic moms to delve further into the weekly readings and get a distinctly Catholic view of motherhood. All are welcome here, but as a Catholic mom, I am often left searching for inspiration, biblical gems, and parenting talk with a Catholic flavor. I love my faith and want to embrace it more deeply, but rest assured, I am no theologian, or biblical scholar. So if you want to muddle through with me with the Holy Spirit as our guide, buckle up!
