I know awhile ago I mentioned that something is brewing in my life. Actually, there's a lot of changes happening in my life right now and I'm really excited about all of them. This Fall has been a busy one for us - four kids, Travis is pursuing his masters, lots of opportunities to develop my writing at Ignitum Today and other places, speaking engagements, meeting/speaking/working with many of my favorite Catholic celebrities, etc. Great things - but they keep us busy!

Rose and the rest of the Behold volunteers have been working on all kinds of exciting things to develop the ministry and I am 100% certain that their beautiful, fun plans are guided by the Holy Spirit.
I know that the Lord has blessed me with the opportunity to help found Behold Catholic Women's Ministries and the Behold Conference. He has definitely been generous to me as the work allowed me to collaborate with wonderful, fun, devout women throughout central Illinois and meet heroes of mine like Jennifer Fulwiler, Teresa Tomeo, and Kate Wicker.
At the next conference I will be sitting in the audience, taking it all in, cheering on my friends, and thanking God for Behold. Maybe we can sit by each other?
