4 The Love of Lexie

I post about DIY projects, lifestyle, fashion, beauty reviews, and other inspirational things. I am targeting a secular audience in an effort to slip in messages of faith in my posts, gently evangelizing the Catholic faith. I do it this way in order to build trust with my audience and slide in messages of Christ rather than to be rejected from the start. My plan within the next few years is to God-willing turn it into a Catholic ministry for young women.

Mrs. Andy, Anchored by Faith

I am Caitlyn Anderson, founder of Mrs. Andy, Anchored By Faith. I’m a blogger, fur-mama, Navy wife, and Catholic: in reverse order. I use my blog as a way to share my Catholic beliefs and how I use faith to navigate marriage, family, health, and military life! I do my best to link everything about my life- mind, body, and soul- back to my faith in God and my relationship with Jesus Christ. I hope that by sharing how the faith keeps me anchored in my crazy life as a young adult and military spouse, I can inspire others to anchor themselves in faith and face their temporal and spiritual storms knowing God is by their side. I am available for freelance writing opportunities and sponsored posts.

The Green Catholic Burrow

Hi, I’m Desiree. I’m a convert to the Catholic Church; I came into the Church at the Easter Vigil 2016 along with my husband Mark and our 8 children. I traveled a long road to come home to the Church. Along the way, I got my B.A. in Biblical Studies, while Mark earned a doctorate in Theology. I have been a “none,” a United Methodist, a Free Methodist, an Orthodox Presbyterian, and attempted to join the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Then, I finally found out where I had belonged all along. At The Green Catholic Burrow, I write about my own conversion to and new experiences in the Catholic Church. My focus is on creating resources to help other converts along the road home, as well as helping lifelong Catholics see their ancient faith through fresh eyes.

Healing Heart of Jesus

Healing Heart of Jesus was created in a response to a calling to spread the message of the love of Jesus’ Most Sacred Heart and how Jesus desires to heals us with His love. The blogs posted include the author, Laura Durant’s, own personal experiences of being transformed by the love of His Most Sacred Heart, as well as prayers that come to her heart during meditation in front of the Blessed Eucharist. I’m very blessed to have been married to my husband of 10 years, as well as to be the mother of two fur babies, our bulldog Winston and sweet kitty, Jake. I am also a member of the Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites of the Oklahoma Province of St. Therese. Living Carmelite spiritually has transformed my prayer life and brought me to a greater love of Mary and Her Most Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am humbled by the many blessings Our Lord has given my husband and I in order to allow us to spread His love, and I pray these blog posts and prayers bring anyone who reads them closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through Mary and Her Most Immaculate Heart.

The Essential Mother

The Essential Mother is a resource for every woman who is caught between a passionate desire to serve and the need to heal, rest, and rise. As a homeschooling mom of 8 and a chronic illness survivor, I see a need to reach women who are seeking a restoration of joy and health (of mind and body) as they serve through their vocation. Having been a faith-based author, blogger (at Blossoming Joy), and speaker, for over a decade , I knew that I was blessed with a platform to help facilitate that healing… and The Essential Mother was born. All glory to God!

Life in Every Limb

I describe myself on my blog as Catholic and Southern, Wife and Mother, which gives a quick but accurate snapshot of who I am and what is important to me. I was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, where I still live. I graduated from Georgetown University, majoring in Honors English and minoring in Theology. My husband and I met there, and we have been married for 28 years with five children aged 12-26. In addition to blogging, I work at home as my husband’s legal assistant, write grants and do editing for a non-profit run by my mother, and homeschool my youngest. In the past I’ve worked as correspondent for our Diocesan paper and I wrote a column on life issues for several years. I was a charter member and long-term chair of our Diocesan Respect Life Committee, via which I helped to design a pro-life CCD curriculum, sponsored a conference on end-of-life issues, and gave many talks on abortion. My blog is now my primary ministry. My niche is hard to define because I write about what I care about, which covers a lot of territory: Faith, Politics, Education, Parenting, Graveyards, Gardening, Hiking, and the occasional recipe or product review!

Being Catholic… Really.

I started the blog Being Catholic … Really on ChicagoNow on November of 2010. The name came from conversations I would have with people. When I would tell them I was Catholic, they would say, “Really?” I converted to the Catholic faith as an adult over 30 years ago. My conversion story started when I sarcastically said to my Catholic boyfriend at the time, “I suppose if we were to get married, you would want me to convert.” He thought for a moment and said, “Well, I am worried about your soul.” And so the journey began …
