Introduction I'm the mother of 13 living children and 7 in heaven. I am the wife of an awesome man of whom our 20 year old son recently asked me: 'Is there anything Padre can't do?' after watching his dad waltz with his older sister at her wedding. I love to write and have recently been published in a book about the Eucharist, Confession 101 compiled By Sister Patrica Proctor and most recently written for Family Foundations the official magazine for the Couple to Couple League. I also love photography, reading, playing with my children and sharing the joy they bring with my husband. I love being Catholic and am in awe that Jesus is really there in the Eucharist. I love that He is as present to me as He was to the Apostles.
