I am a Roman Catholic faithful to the teaching of the Church and to the Magisterium. I am happily married (the photo of me to the right was taken on the best day of my life!), a Mom and a full-time working professional.
I have a strong interest in sharing the wisdom behind the virtue of Chastity. I am a big fan of Blessed John Paul II, Pope Paul VI, Dietrich and Alice von Hildebrand and St. Thomas Aquinas. I want to promote the wisdom of Humanae Vitae and Theology of the Body.
What qualifies me to offer advice to single girls? I got married when I was 38 years old. So, I understand the plight of the single girl. I understand the challenges singles face in meeting their spouse and the landmines that are present in the dating world.
I understand the challenges that come with waiting for something as precious, desirable and holy as marriage. I understand the confusion that results for faithful singles when others (who are snubbing their noses at God) go on to get married and appear to live happily every after. As a result of my own experience, I understand how to recognize a healthy, holy, marriage-bound courtship.
I made the most of my single years, as we should, but that doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a difficult time. I freely admit that I did not feel fulfilled in my singleness. My heart desired to be a wife and mother and that unfulfilled desire was tough to carry around. Yes, I may have had to accept perpetual singleness and I was willing to if it was the Lord’s will. But for me, the unfulfilled desire, while it lasted, was very difficult.
If you are also experiencing difficulty, then I understand. I remember it well. I wrote a soon to be published book called ‘The Veil’ with the benefit of hindsight; the hindsight I wish I had when I was single. I wrote the book with the knowledge of what it is like to be single when you want to be married and the sting of having to accept that it may never happen.
I hope this site encourages you and fills you with wisdom and hope! Please feel free contact me.
