About

Originally from Newport News, Virginia and grown in the burbs of Omaha, Nebraska, I’m a housewife and mother, award-winning columnist for the Catholic Connectionand editor for the blog Truth & Charity.  I graduated from Benedictine College in 2008 with majors in Theology and Youth Ministry as well as minors in English and Psychology. I married my hero Andrew in June of the same year and God has since blessed us with three sweet boys. In June of 2013, I won 3rd Place in the Catholic Press Association Awards for Best Regular Column on Family Life among entries from both the United States and Canada.

My desire is to obtain sainthood through living my vocation and undergoing constant conversion to Christ. I dedicate all my efforts to the glory of God, through the intercession of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, who was renowned not only by her compassion for the poor, but also by her deep love for her husband.

She lived her married life affectionately, with every fiber of her being,
and revealed to her husband a sweet womanly charm full of tenderness.
