The Anniversary of Roe v Wade: The Stories I Don’t Tell

I realized tonight that while I have discussed my issues with the pro-life movement, a million times, I have not talked much about why I do not believe in abortion. Part of that is that I have some larger work in production that I plan to use as a discussion point, but part of it... Continue Reading →

#Throughfire

As Quarantine began, the community led by Catholic Creatives exploded with innovators inspired to help others through their struggles. We faced our own giants of fear and trepidation, but something in us drove us to community and fellowship. My desire was to fill social media with art to help with the constant deluge of news...

Today is a Marathon, not a Sprint

I’m going to tell you about my favorite mom secret. The way I handle the days when everything is falling apart and you don’t even want to open your eyes, let alone run after toddlers all day long. It started when I was pregnant with my youngest and exhausted from HG. Willow and I would... Continue Reading →

Finding Freedom in Motherhood

When I became a mom, I was terrified. I thought this meant I had to be into legos, Lincoln logs, and other little people toys and I was going to have to give up on everything I actually do love. The problem with this that a lot of people don't have is that I wasn't... Continue Reading →

It's hard for me to take a side because I feel like I understand the arguments and feelings on either side. I have felt unwanted and that feeling is devastating, and I have... Continue Reading →

Post Partum Depression

A mama who I admire and respect posted a link about Post Partum Depression today. She commented above it about her own struggle with "raging hormones" and "stream of consciousness" thoughts. My stomach clenched in excitement and fear. Someone saw me. Someone knew whats been happening to me. Something that I have been trying to... Continue Reading →

Motherhood DID Ruin My Life

I keep seeing all these posts from other women that are supposed to be jabs at "the liberals" for talking about how miserable having lots of kids makes them.(I know I know Stereotype but it's not my stereotype it's theirs!) Instead it just makes me feel like they are showing off how awesome their life... Continue Reading →

The Ever-Mother Part 2

"But" the poor one groaned in ignorance, How could you loose the chains ignominible? They each tread diamond black on my chest, And render dirty hands incapable. A glare descended from nearby on high, A towerer who had come to her once And asking dear one to with the Lord's will comply Looked on with joy... Continue Reading →
