I look forward to hearing from you!


  1. Hi Colleen,

    I've been enjoying your blog since I found it via WIWS, but just today thought to read your "The Family" section. When I saw that your husband is a theology teacher at a Catholic high school (where you work as well), I thought I'd contact you and see if I could send you a copy of my novel, "Finding Grace." It's a Catholic coming-of-age love story that is pro-chastity and pro-life--and although adults have read and enjoyed it, my target audience was definitely teens/young adults. I would like to donate it to your school's library, if you're interested. (And if you and/or your husband would be willing to read it and write a review on your blog...that would be awesome. Or maybe he would be willing to recommend it to his students?)

    I feel a little nervy asking you this, but I'm trying to go outside my comfort zone a little in my efforts to promote the book. In fact, I blogged about this very thing today, not long before I went to check out your blog.

    If you would like a copy, let me know where I should send it. (You can contact me at

    Thanks so much.

  2. Well, I've seen Cari's blogposts about you guys and I've seen your blog and tonight! There we were looking on YouTube for family rosaries to help inspire my boys to start saying a nightly tradition and what should we see but YOUR FAMILY minus one cutie pie saying a Rosary! Too cute. I'm glad you shared.

  3. im sending you an email... got a few questions for you! :)

  4. Hi. Our parish is opening a school and I'm thinking of trying to get a job there because my son youngest son will be going into kindergarten and I'll be ready to go back to work. Can you tell me what positions a typical catholic school has? I saw you mention Business Manager and bookkeeper. Do these jobs usually continue throughout the summer? Do Catholic schools typically provide benefits? Also, if I can't find a job at the school if I find a job at the diceses can I get a discount on my kids tuition? Thanks in advance for the help. I'm a Catholic school newbie. 😉

    1. Email me at so we can discuss more :)

  5. Hi, thought you might want to know that cleric Pat Buckley has used one of your posts to mock Archbishop Martin of Armagh... you might wish to complain or lodge a copyright complaint, you can see his posting here:

  6. Hi Colleen,
    I found you blog from Camp Patton. You are my unicorn! I am working mom, who has 4 children 6 and under and am Catholic. I know some women that work, some that are Catholic, and some that have 4 or more littles, but not one person that is all of the above! It can be a bit of a lonely place! Luckily I have 4 beautiful little people that keep me very busy (in a good way!)
    Thank you for your blog ! Wish I could meet you IRL to swap tips!
    God Bless,
