By Ana Borden I have been extraordinarily blessed having three sisters. We know each other better than anyone else thanks to childhood adventures, inside jokes and seeing each other through all different seasons, challenges and experiences. We are there for each other’s birthdays, special events and in our children’s lives, even if it might be […]
By Kristen Bourgeois I feel far from God when I don’t pray. I love a good devotional book, my journal and an hour in the adoration chapel. But being a stay at home momma with two littles, my prayer time has had to adjust, especially during this pandemic.
By Mary Bruno It only took one dose of not-so-tasty medicine for our 4-year-old daughter to cringe and run away screaming at the site of the next 29 doses. Thank God for chocolate syrup! But that antibiotic finally started to heal her from an aggressive sickness.
By Jenny Dendinger I was lost in lesson planning when my son approached me in tears. I automatically scanned his little body for signs of injury, but all I could find was a defeated look on his face. He crumbled into my arms and sobbed, “Mom, I wasted my money on this game! All of […]
By Greg Zambrano Last Sunday, we went to Mass. The Gospel reading was Matthew 13:1-23, “The parable of the sower” In this parable, Jesus speaks about how we are all different, like the types of soils ready or not to receive nutrients which are the words of God.

By Casey Sprehe On March 13, 2020, John Bel Edwards’ press conference changed life in an instant. My overly (probably imprudently so) spring schedule was wiped out within the week.

By Kim Roberts What a tumultuous world we are living in – the coronavirus, social distancing, riots, tropical storms, so many things weighing on us and our children. It is hard for an adult to work through the tensions, much less trying to keep their children informed and calm. We have always tried to have […]
By Kristy Solis Summertime is here! Due to this pandemic period, my daughters are eager to return to school. Keep in mind, they did not get a break from school. During this time, school was continued through online lessons. I asked both of my daughters “What do you miss about school?”
By Megan Lacourrege There has undoubtedly been a lot of disappointment at the number of activities that won’t happen this summer. The list is long: vacations, family get-togethers, birthday parties, camps, pool time and more. Additionally, some families have a member who is immunocompromised, so everyone may feel an extra need to be cautious. Other […]
By Stacy LaMorte We had an important new milestone in our home this week: our oldest child got her driver’s license. This is an exciting, yet understandably unsettling time. She went through a driver’s education program where the new drivers (and their parents) were taught the gravity of what they were about to undertake.
