Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m Ginny Kubitz Moyer, author of Random MOMents of Grace: Experiencing God in the Adventures of Motherhood and Mary and Me: Catholic Women Reflect on the Mother of God. I’m also an English teacher and a mother to two young boys.
My spiritual life has changed dramatically since having kids; like many moms, I have less time than ever to meditate, but more than ever to meditate on. *** This blog is a chance to share some of the many insights I’m gaining from parenting … insights into faith, community, love, and Mary, one of my favorite mothers of all time.
As you’ll see, I also veer into other topics, like nerdy odes to Jane Austen and shameless flaunting of my roses. (To be honest, they don’t all look as good as the ones you’ll see here. I don’t take pictures of the ones with the aphids.)
*** Even English teachers occasionally end with a preposition.
Me, in a nutshell
My favorite way to pray: Any way I can.
My favorite way to spend an evening alone: Watching any BBC drama that features women in crinolines.
My favorite literary classic: Jane Eyre … or maybe The Great Gatsby.
Where I’m from: the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.
A place I’d love to see again: Paris.
My favorite name for Mary : Don’t make me pick.
Okay: Star of the Sea.
Someone I’ve never met who has profoundly shaped my spiritual life: Father Mychal Judge.
Someone I have met who has profoundly shaped my spiritual life: my friend Mary.
Two things I’d like in life, besides world peace: More free time, and a second bathroom.
