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.

2:1 Conference

Dear Friends,
I'm writing this extra post to ask for prayers as I consider attending the 2:1 Conference for bloggers. On this feast of St. Titus, I find it fitting to petition him specifically for intercession regarding this. The title of the conference is based on Titus 2:1

You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine.

My fervent prayer is that I might lead other mothers to a closer relationship with Christ, with what is in accord with sound doctrine. I've been praying about whether God wants me to expand this blog and this conference would teach me the tools to do that. For instance, I didn't know how to insert the link button into this post, a pretty basic thing I'm told. So I need to get my computer skills a bit more up to date if God wants this to reach a larger audience. I also need to learn how to organize my time and resources. While there are many wonderful conferences out there, this one is a Christian one and also has a track for homeschooling moms. Moms are moms, no matter how our children are educated, so I would be among my target audience too! So sisters and friends in faith, please utter a little prayer for me for guidance about this conference. Of course, winning the entrance ticket giveaway from Angie at The Homeschool Classroom would be a pretty big sign, right?
