My name is JoAnna Wahlund, and I’ve been a Catholic working mom for over 10 years. I’m a convert to the catholic faith, as is my husband. We jointly converted from the ELCA in 2003. I have five children here on earth, ages 10, 7, 5, 3, and 1. We also have three saints in heaven. I’ve worked full-time during all of my pregnancies, and returned to work within 6-8 weeks of each birth. I am intimately familiar with the joys and challenges of this hectic lifestyle.

Of Sound Mind and Spirit: A few things about us: we’re both Catholic, raised during the late 70s, early 80’s era of “lost Catholics”. After 12 years of CCE we couldn’t recite the catechism or discern the difference between a mortal and venial sin, but we knew that “God Loves Us. ” It has been as adults, as mothers, raising our children in the Catholic church, that we are experiencing a return to our faith, a need to delve more deeply into what it means to us. Our Spirit of Love.
We were raised to respect authority, but to reason and think for ourselves. Throughout our lives we were told to be independent, and as grown women with families and children we both call ourselves conservative. We respect life, individuality, and personal responsibility. We believe in education, as both of us have upper level degrees – in History and in the Law. Our Spirit of Power. So here is our place to contemplate the changes facing our society today. We hope that you will follow us as we discuss issues important to our lives.
