About Me

Lilacs make me happy (you too?)

Lilacs make me happy (you too?)

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; I have less time than ever to meditate, but more than ever to meditate on (yes, even English teachers occasionally end with a preposition).   But if parenthood has taught me anything, it’s taught me that I don’t have to have silence and solitude to find God.  If I work on being mindful, I can recognize God in this toy-strewn house, in the lunchboxes I pack and the bedtime stories I read, in all the random little moments that make up the life of a mom.   This blog is a chance to share some of those moments of recognition, hopefully with a little humor as well.

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.)

And if you want to contact me?  Email  me at ginny@randomactsofmomness.com.

Me, in a nutshell

 My favorite way to pray: Any way I can.

My favorite flower: Lilacs.  Also roses.  Okay, pretty  much any flower.

My favorite way to spend an evening alone: Watching any BBC drama that features women in bonnets.

The kids’ book that I think every child should read: Andrew Henry’s Meadow. Also Pickle-Chiffon Pie.

Where I’m from: the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.

A place I’d love to see again: Paris.

My personal theme song: I’m a Catholic girl named Virginia.  Of course it’s going to be this.

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.
