Hello fans and friends of The Anchoress and a huge thanks to my friend Elizabeth for inviting me to take the helm for the day here at one of my favorite blogs! Like you, I’m a longtime follower of Elizabeth’s work, so being here and having the opportunity to interact with you in her space is indeed a joy. As I line up my thoughts for the day, I thought I would invite you to pose a few questions or comments below on any topics you’d like to see discussed today. Those can be related to faith topics, the news of the day, to popular culture, or even personal questions for me.
To give you a bit of context, I’m a Catholic wife and mom of two sons. My husband Greg, an Emergency Medicine physician, is a convert to the faith. Son Eric is a sophomore at Harvard and my wonderful Adam is a junior in high school. I am the founder of CatholicMom.com, which isn’t just for Catholics or even just for moms. Elizabeth is helping me to celebrate the launch of my new book, A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms. Personally, I’m a cradle Catholic, a major geek and loving all things New Media, a Notre Dame grad (licking her wounds from a football trouncing this weekend), and love spending time in the company of family and friends.
I’ll be back soon to pose our first discussion topic of the day, but until then I invite you to send your thoughts and comments via the comments below. I hope you’ll also join me in continued prayers for Kitty and again thanks to Elizabeth for her hospitality.
