Hi, I’m Annie! I’m a Catholic wife, writer & producer. I love to read, to write, and to share some of the best things I find here — and those are the things that point us to God, remind us of what living life as a Catholic wife is all about, and things that inspire us to grow in our faith and vocations.
And I love community. Working from home for the past couple of years has proven to be a little isolating at times, and it has reminded me that we all need people and that a community of faithful friends can be so life-giving!
That’s what I hope to bring to you here, and on my Facebook page and Instagram; a sense of community, a place where we can interact on all things-Catholic, and a place where we can support one another as we all strive to get to Heaven in each of our vocations.
Just like our friendships can serve to bring us closer to Christ, I hope I can do that for you here. From sharing my own experiences to hearing about yours as well; I hope and pray we can learn from each other and bring out the best in one another! So, thank you for stopping by, for reading — and sharing!
I look forward to sharing some of the best things I find with you!
Now, a little more about me…
I used to broadcast the news.
Now, I broadcast prayers.
And honestly, the two aren’t as different as you would think.
I got into journalism because I wanted to become, “as close as possible to the heart of the world.” I wanted to talk to people, learn about them, tell their stories.
I was able to do that fairly well while I worked in the news business, but I always felt that something was missing…
At the end of a work day, I would go home and I would pray — I would pray for those people whose stories I had told, for those people whose deaths I covered, and for those who were suffering and mourning their losses.
But in that darkness, there is light — there is hope… and I wanted to seek, uncover, and share more of that.
And now, I do — through interacting with faithful people from all around the world.
I work from home on a prayer ministry I run with my husband: Pray More Novenas. Together, we pray a novena online as a community each month — we have people praying with us from all around the world. This community shares its hopes, dreams, losses, answered prayers… And it is through this work that I truly have felt myself becoming closer to the heart of the world — to God through the people I get to interact with on a daily basis.
When I was a morning show producer, I would start my day scouring the internet for the big news of the day. I basically do the same thing now — the only difference is I’m at home, sometimes I’m in my pj’s, and all of the things I find and share have something to do with our Catholic faith. I look forward to bringing you some good news — my favorite type of news 🙂
