And, I've gone and pledged myself to something crazy during this time. I hope I don't regret … Continue reading Instagram Live: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

The Mystery Blogger Award

Fiat Mihi Secundum Verbum Tuum: What I Intend to Learn from the Lives of Female Saints

Like the mother bird to its chickens or a shield to the arm'd knight: so is the Lord to her mind, in His unchanging lucidity.... She may walk among … Continue reading Fiat Mihi Secundum Verbum Tuum: What I Intend to Learn from the Lives of Female Saints
