“I am Catholic wife and mother of 7 (with one in heaven). I spend the day working in the world of banking & finance and the evening doing homework supervision, motivating and sometimes shouting and on weekends I am a homemaker, striving to do the will of God at all times. My hope for this blog is that others may come to know God more deeply.”
