I am the fifth child of five, blessed with five little miracles of my own. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a counselor, a homeschooler, a practicing (though often failing) Catholic. My life journey has been amazing. I am blessed beyond my ability to believe most days.

Holy Mary, Mother of God
The Blessed Mother has been on my heart and in my mind a lot lately (more on that later) so it was so wonderful to spend today with my family, pointing our hearts and minds in her direction so that she might ultimately lead us to her Son. In all the rush and confusion of these times, I am so thankful to have days like this one.

Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
O most pure heart of Mary, full of goodness, show your love towards us. Let the flame of your heart, O Mary, descend on all people. We love you immensely. Impress on our hearts true love so that we may long for you. O Mary, gentle and humble of heart, remember us when we sin. You know that all people sin. Grant that through your most pure and motherly heart, we may be healed from every spiritual sickness. Grant that we may always experience the goodness of your motherly heart, and that through the flame of your heart we may be converted. Amen.
(Dictated by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj of Medurgorje, 18 November 1983.)
