You Should Be On Team Raoul

You Should Be On Team Raoul

  The Phantom of the Opera is one of those beautifully atmospheric novels, and musicals, that enthrals audiences all over the world. I confess to loving it myself – I’ve read the book more times than I can count and watched the musical, the Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler version, several times. Recently I stumbled […]

Father's Day Freebies

Father’s Day Freebies

  Father’s Day rolls around every year and I’m scratching my head for ideas as to what to get hubby this year, I mean, aside from the socks and chocolate that is! Considering the amount of time hubby has to spend on the computer and his smart phone for work I decided that designing a wallpaper […]

Supernatural Heroes

Supernatural Heroes

  There is a certain type of magnetism that pulls little boys towards fictional superheroes. As the mother of 3 boys (and 2 girls) I know this all too well! Certainly, there is little wrong in wanting to be a hero and save the day – nobody in my house actually enjoys playing the villain […]

Jesus We’re Here And We Love You

Jesus We’re Here And We Love You

  To say we struggled with the services over Easter this year is something of an understatement. And Good Friday proved to be too much altogether. To begin with, the cathedral was packed and our family of seven ended up being divided into two pews one behind the other which of course, Masters 3 and […]

Don’t Wait, Lead!

Don’t Wait, Lead!

  I have been devouring The Benedict Option by Rob Dreher (which, if you haven’t heard of yet you need to google it now and order a copy, I’m just saying) and whilst I am really loving the content there is something that’s bugging me. I mean, this guy has taken the time to research […]

Falling Short Of Perfect

Falling Short Of Perfect

   Over the course of the past two weeks I’ve missed two events at my children’s school that I wanted to attend. Unfortunately, as much as I admire the children’s school for so many reasons, one of its weaknesses has been the communication with parents and what’s happening around the school. Having said this, they have made […]

Share In His Suffering

Share In His Suffering

      Saint Teresa of Calcutta is a spiritual inspiration of mine. Perhaps you may have already gathered that from my recent post on the Domestic Missionary? My daily meditations are taken from the book Jesus, The Word To Be Spoken which is a collection of prayers and meditations for every day of the […]

Backyard Stations of the Cross

Backyard Stations of the Cross

    We are once again in the midst of Lent, and you may be feeling, like me, a strong desire to attend stations of the cross. Although, some times the demands of family life or husbands work schedules can make this near impossible. Being a mother is important and so is being available to […]
