My day to day to day life has changed considerably since September, 2014. First, my daughter started school leaving me only 1 high-schooler to home school, with all this 'free' time, I embarked on full-time ministry work. That brought with it many opportunities I never expected - such as A Seeking Heart with Allison Gingras on Real Life Radio - a crazy LIVE radio gig I am blessed to experience daily at 10 a.m.
The show's format is basic - God, CATHOLIC BOOKS and Talking... all the discussions center on the themes and insights from awesome books, and lots of them! I couldn't possibly feature each of the great tomes that exist in the Catholic market, so I am taking to reviewing them on my blog as well.
I've been blessed to be offered many of them -- and I have yet to receive one that I thought stunk - for #SmallSuccess #1 - though that might be more a success credited to the fantastic editorial staffs of the Catholic Publishers - but I'll take it as a success for me not having to waste my time reading junkie books!!
As Lent approaches - less than a week away - it is time for me to discern my own Spiritual Reading for the Lenten journey, aside from those being featured on A Seeking Heart (be sure to visit my page and check out what is coming!!) #SmallSuccess #2 - finally wading through offerings from Ave Maria Press to determine which ones I'll be personally using:
One I did not choose but really enjoyed - that you may find a great companion for you and you family this Lent is Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle's Bringing Lent Home with St. John Paul II: Prayers, Reflections and Activities for Families.
Lastly, #SmallSuccess #3 is celebrating that after 3+ years of reviewing Catholic technology (particularly Android Apps) over at Catholicmom.com and my new gig, Ministry and Liturgy Magazine, I have finally broken down and purchased an iPad!! This ushers me into a new world of being able to explore, review and ENJOY Apps on both media formats!! My next goal - Windows Surface (but baby steps...wallet friendly, baby steps!)
What success (small or large) are you enjoying today? Share it in the Small Success link up over on Catholicmom.com! Don't have a blog, no problem, share your successes in the comment boxes below!!
