The Saints


Nuts and Bolts, or what is holy water, anyway??

Liturgical Living




 Favorite Blogs

Carrots for Michaelmas – Liturgy, homeschooling, and literature. A favorite of mine long before I ever imagined I’d ever be Catholic.

A Catholic Newbie – Tons of resources for the new Catholic.

Catholic All Year – Catholic family life and liturgical living. – If you are or were Reformed, or you have Reformed friends or family, or want some meaty answers to theological questions, go here. I spent hours on this blog when I was contemplating conversion, and they were hours well spent.

Sweeping Up Joy – Catholic faith and family life, and reflections on coping with a child with a serious illness.

Elizabeth Clare – Lovely Catholic blog by a fellow convert with a lot of homeschooling resources.

House Unseen Life Unscripted

This Ain’t the Lyceum

The Christian Freethinker – This is my hubby’s blog. He’s pretty awesome. Just saying.
