Book Launch: Simple Mercies

There was an amazing article in The Florida Times-Union this past Sunday about the year I spent doing works of mercy. Please check it out: https://www.jacksonville.com/story/news/local/2021/05/21/turning-40-led-jacksonville-woman-year-service-writing-book/5091085001/t

The author did such an amazing job capturing the intention of the year and of the book, Simple Mercies.ย 

I spoke at my home parish this past Saturday and celebrated with a book launch reception afterward. It was one of those magic nights that made all of the hard days seem so far away. If a picture captures 1,000 words, then surely these capture the joy, gratitude, and love that made my heart simply happy!

      Thank you, Vicki! It feels like a long way away from those early days of mothering! It was such a fun night and so nice to celebrate something after the Covid curse of isolation. I would love to speak at San Juan someday. When things settle down we can work on that! (and I love the quote from Carla!)

      Thank you, Roger! I missed you at the talk. I was hoping to see you and Jane. (That’s me giving you Catholic guilt! But, seriously, it’s true!)
