A Beautiful, Camouflaged Mess of A Life: Hi, I’m Anni! I’m a proud Catholic, Army wife, and mother to two children and a couple canines. I am currently a stay at home mom, blogging about my faith and its daily application, parenthood, and army life from a wife’s perspective. I am a social worker by education and trade. And I often draw upon my professional experience to infuse my blog with engaging stories and practical ways to implement effective parenting techniques, while wading through the unfamiliar waters of faith-based parenting!
This Wholly Imperfect Life: Hi, my name is Alejandra. I am a wife and mother of two beautiful and rambunctious boys. I first started blogging when I lived abroad in Italy with my husband from 2012 to 2013. I blogged mainly to keep in touch with family and friends. This new blog is really a result of my desire to seek what is true, good and beautiful in my daily life. Being a mother and wife is one of the most challenging things I have ever taken up. However, it is by far the most rewarding. I grow daily in my striving to give of myself and faltering, well, most of the time. That is what life is made up of, imperfections. Imperfections that help us strive for holiness: perfection. Daily we struggle to live this imperfect life and yet we recognize that in each challenge, in each difficulty, in each new day, if we focus on what is true, good and beautiful, this imperfect life is a bit more perfect.
Sarah Damm: Sarah Damm is a Catholic wife and mother to six children, ages 5 to 13. Like many moms, she spends her days driving kids around, running errands, cooking meals, and helping with homework. And in the thick of it, she strives to weave the Catholic faith, in all its rich beauty and tradition, into daily life as well as into family celebrations. In addition to her own blog, Sarah is a regular contributor for CatholicMom.com, Catholic Evangelizers, and WINE: Women in the New Evangelization. She writes about faith, family, health, books, and more. She enjoys reading, knitting, and going out for coffee with friends.
The Fish Blog: Gigi is happily married to Mike and she has 2 Younglings, George & Gracie. She loves her family, relatives, friends, home, watching tv, movies, steak, sushi, taking photos of her kiddos, checking out Facebook, discovering new things, listening to Praise and Worship songs, watching the sunset, taking long walks at the beach… wait … what?
Daily Graces: Finding God in Cooking, Cleaning and the Everyday Ordinary: Kate Taliaferro is an Air Force wife and mother of 3 children under 4. She enjoys homeschooling her two oldest while chasing her dare-devil toddler off tables and out from under cushions. When she’s not herding her ducklings (as they like to be called) she is blogging, working with Felician University on their new online courses, pretending to write a book, knitting, crocheting, reading and most definitely sleeping!
Erin McCole Cupp: Erin McCole Cupp is a wife, mother, and lay Dominican who lives with her family of vertebrates somewhere out in the middle of Nowhere, Pennsylvania. Her short writing has appeared in Canticle Magazine, The Catholic Standard and Times, Parents, The Philadelphia City Paper, The White Shoe Irregular, Outer Darkness Magazine, and the newsletter of her children’s playgroup. She is a contributor to CatholicMom.com and has been a guest blogger for the Catholic Writers Guild, and she occasionally blogs about year-round meatless Fridays at Mrs. Mackerelsnapper, OP. Her other professional experiences include acting, costuming, youth ministry, international scholar advising, and waiting tables. When Erin is not writing, cooking or parenting, she can be found reading, singing a bit too loudly, sewing for people she loves, gardening in spite of herself, or dragging loved ones to visitors centers at tourist spots around the country. Erin’s books are available on Amazon.
Theology is a Verb: Elizabeth Reardon of Theology is a Verb and An Engaging Faith is a lay minister, catechist, presenter and facilitator for the Catholic Church. With a heart for connecting the faith to the work of justice and reconciliation in our communities, her hope is for people to become captivated with the “more” that our faith offers. Her writing, often Ignatian in practice, is an invitation to seek and create space for God in the midst of the busyness of everyday life.
Mama Needs Coffee: Jenny Uebbing is the outspoken voice behind Mama Needs Coffee. Wife to Dave, mother to a growing child army and a graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville, she blogs on matters of faith, sexuality, morality, and family life. A freelance writer and editor, her work has been featured by Our Sunday Visitor, FOCUS, Endow, the National Catholic Register, Catholic Exchange, and now Catholic News Agency, where her blog is hosted. Her blogs are regularly reprinted in diocesan publications nationwide and outside the US. She likes coffee a lot, but actually prefers espresso, truth be told.
Prayer, Wine, Chocolate: Hi, I’m Amy! I’m the wife to an amazingly patient man. I’m the mom of an adorable, compassionate, funny, smart boy. I long to fill my house with more children. I’m a dreamer, a believer and a constant work in progress. I am all about setting goals and going for it. I think hard work is important and rewarding. I believe in life’s abundance, the Lord’s love for each and every individual and that every day is a new beginning that can be filled with hope.

After 30-some years as an uneducated lukewarm Catholic, she moved to the Arlington Diocese and was exposed to the truth and riches of the Catholic faith. Though it was initially jarring, she is very grateful for that exposure. You will generally find her trying to bring the faith, with its incumbent joys and struggles, to anyone who will listen (including the dog). Emily is a Master Catechist for the Diocese of Arlington and holds an Advanced Certificate in Youth Ministry from the Diocese of Arlington in conjunction with the Franciscan University of Steubenville.
