November 4, 2018

The holidays are coming and the influx of catalogs in my mailbox confirms it.

October 28, 2018

As a mother of strong-willed toddlers, I was instructed to “pick your battles.” Now, as a mother of strong-willed teenagers, I still follow this instruction.

The Walking with Purpose Blogging Team is excited to mix things up this week! We introduce to you the fabulous Maria Koshute, a blogger we discovered over at The Young Catholic Woman (TYCW).

July 29, 2018

At the end of my first year of BLAZE, I turned to my darling group of middle school girls and asked them what they had learned.
