Back in May 2006, I started my blog on a whim and a prayer.
And over the years, as both my confidence and my numbers have grown, I’ve come to appreciate that, more than anything, it’s about the people.
One of the relationships I’ve come to treasure in those years is the one that’s grown with the gracious and lovely Lisa Hendey, founder of CatholicMom.com. In the years since I first cracked open my first blog post, Lisa has been a mentor, a guide, and, best of all, a friend to me.
When my most recent book was proposed as the first of the CatholicMom.com Books, I was, first of all, immensely humbled. Right on the heels of that, though, was the excitement of putting one of my favorite websites on the covers of a book that I had poured so much of myself into.
This Lent, I find myself once again humbled by the work I get to do with Lisa and CatholicMom.com. Thanks to the generosity of both Lisa and Ave Maria Press, we have an awesome initiative:
I’m learning about how my little blogging–which started as a way of keeping myself accountable for daily writing–has turned into so much more. Lisa’s own work over at CatholicMom.com began as a response to a need in her community.
If you’re inclined, I’d love to have your support for this project. Whether you’re in a position to donate and help us meet our goal or if you can offer a prayer or three, know that we greatly appreciate your participation!
