Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m Ginny Kubitz Moyer, author ofÂ Random MOMents of Grace: Experiencing God in the Adventures of MotherhoodÂ andÂ Â Mary andÂ Me:Â Catholic Women Reflect on the Mother of God. Â Â I’m also an EnglishÂ 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). Â Â But if parenthood has taught me anything, it’s taught me that I don’t have to have silence and solitude to find God. Â 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. Â Â 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. Â (To be honest, they don’t all look as good as the ones you’ll see here. Â I don’t take pictures of the ones with the aphids.)
And if you want to contact me? Â Email Â me atÂ firstname.lastname@example.org.
