Hello!!  Welcome to this little corner of the big internet world where I share thoughts, tips, and anything that could help you become a better person on this journey to Heaven.

With this blog I hope, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to primarily to encourage you to desire and strive for Heaven.

Our time on earth is short compared to eternity, but the struggle is hard and we need the prayers and encouragement of each other.  So I hope the posts on this blog will be just the beginning of the encouragement and inspirations to come from all of you in the comments below where I can hear your thoughts on certain posts, faith-filled experiences you’ve had, or insightful things that I missed in a post.

I am a the eldest of a big Catholic, home school family and treasure all the joys my crazy family and life bring me. 😉  I love to laugh and even more making others laugh.

St. Padre Pio said, “Serve the Lord with laughter” and there’s nothing better than the joy of Christ as I share here.

However, life is not all fun and games and so I also value when we challenge and encourage each other to grow, which is why I wanted to start this blog.  I LOVE my Catholic faith and especially Jesus in the Holy Eucharist and my ultimate role model and best girl friend: The Virgin Mary.  I aspire to someday reach Heaven and maybe be the patron saint of “smiley face” emoji. 😀

Please pray for me and I will be praying for you!
