Hi friends, welcome! My name is Claire, and I am unabashedly Catholic to the core. I received a degree in theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, and I still find in the Church a garden of wisdom and grace which surprises me with it’s beauty every day. I love to write my reflections about faith and the sacramentality of daily life here – that is, when I find time in my busy life as a wife of one, mom of six, Coordinator of Adult Faith Formation in my wonderful parish, local speaker, and graduate student of Spiritual Theology at the amazing Avila Institute. You can also find my posts at Catholicmom.com and Women of Grace. I’d love to connect with you on Facebook, too. Thanks for visiting, and may God bring you and yours much grace and peace!
