Jesus has been traveling with me throughout my study of the saints since 2012 and my long spiritual journey through a confusing and difficult period of recovery from codependency and psychological abuse. I turned around and recognized Him on May 10, 2017. Check out my archives and/or begin journeying along with me now as I ponder God, spiritual awakenings, saints, their recipes for faithful living, angels, nature, recovery, books, and foods. Blessed Mother Mary is my namesake and Muse, and St. Francis of Assisi is my birthday patron and inspiration. Without my connection to them, this blog wouldn’t exist.
I’m writing a spiritual journey memoir about how studying and practicing recipes for saintly living led me, not to sainthood, but to sanity. It’s working title is “Connections,” and this is the cover:
I’m a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Wilmington, NC where I serve on the Wilmington Faiths Against Gun Violence Team, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America where I serve as the local religious liaison, and National Geography Society where I serve as reader of back issues in hopes of catching up one day.
I’m an intuitive empath, retired stay-at-home mom with a boy and a girl in college, and an adult child of an alcoholic recovering from codependency and psychological abuse. I’m also an activist, beach meanderer, mountain hiker, hippie, Whovian, and creator of the Bohemian Writers Coffee Club where craft comes first, unless we’re drinking coffee and discussing craft, then drinking coffee and discussing craft comes first.
