KITCHEN TABLE CHATS

Pull up a chair in my domestic church and let's chat!

I have worn many labels (Not in any particular order): Catholic, Wife, Mom,Gramma, Doctor, Major, Soccer Mom, Military Wife, Professor, Fellow.

All of these filter my views of the world. I hope that like St. Monica, I can through prayer, words and example, lead my children and others to Faith.
"The important thing is that we do not let a single day go by in vain without putting it to good use for eternity"--Blessed Franz J├Ągerst├Ątter

One Book Meme--Family Style

The One Book Meme has been making its way around the blogosphere. Rather than filling it out by my self I took it to the dinner table.

I love Jane Austin, but I don't think many men do. She's definitely the matter of chick flicks.

Some good books here. The Screwtape Letters is a good and quick read.
