It is a place of stark beauty. There are no distractions here, no sound but the wind, nothing but the soothing softness of the sand and the majesty of God's Heaven above. In this place of quiet, we can hear His call more clearly. Temptations will surely come, but through prayer, we will be strengthened. At the end of our journey, we will be souls transformed. Made into beautiful votives which will carry the light of Christ from Easter for always.
This year, I have decided that we should focus on the dignity and blessing of our married vocations; and how we can pray Lent to help us grow in sanctifying grace, making us worthy of the title of Daughters of a King and the honor of marriage and motherhood.
This year, we welcome Kathryn Mulderink, the author of several wonderful books that will surely deepen your Faith and love for God. We are also welcoming Donna Cooper O'Boyle as a contributor this year. I am pleased and honored to have her here. Her newest publication, "Catholic Saints Prayer Book" is due out in March.
In addition to reflections and devotions for your spiritual growth, we offer you articles with practical ways to transform your daily life, and resources for helping your children grow in faith. Our regular content will be coupled with audio talks with women, who will share their personal stories and thoughts, throughout the season.
Finally, we are invited to experience Lent with Our Blessed Mother's through an original fictional series that I have been inspired to write. I pray that the Holy Spirit will speak through the story, touching your heart and soul.
Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit this website. I hope that you will come often to refresh yourself throughout this beautiful season. My prayers are with each and every one of you. May you be richly blessed!
