My secret to being a more joyful Catholic Mom!
In this video, I want to share with you three books that have helped me overcome negative thinking and become a happier, more joyful and optimistic catholic wife and mom. I know that sometimes it can be hard to stay positive when we face so many challenges and difficulties in our lives, such as scandals in the church or the stressors of family life as a mom. But I believe that God wants us to have a hopeful and grateful attitude, and that we can learn to change our mindset and habits with God's grace and guidance.
Two videos that helped to inspire this video and that I highly recommend watching are:
Fr Ripperger's video about the psychology of negative thinking:
The two part Sister Talk Series about "What Mary Wants from You":
All three books are easy reads so don’t worry that they will be long and arduous, that’s the last thing you would need when you are feeling down or need a pick me upper! On the contrary, these are all short and uplifting books that will leave you feeling inspired and encouraged. Progress and baby steps is what really matters, so start by trying to play the glad game. ☺

WHO I AM:
Hi! I’m a Catholic wife and homeschooling mother of 6 children.
I have an MS degree in Biological Sciences with an emphasis in Neuroscience and (before being a stay at home mom) I used to work in a research lab studying the reward system and the effects that cues have on our behavior. In my routine, I use a lot of habit stacking and sensory cues (visual reminder like statues, scented candles paired with prayer time, etc.) to keep my routines running smoothly, even if there are interruptions I try to make it flexible and adaptable.
I’ve discovered so many things from timeless, traditional Catholic books, and other amazing resources and I just want to share them with the world, so others can benefit from them, as I have and as I continue to strive to grow in virtue.
I strive to do all things for the greater glory of God!
