Sharing 3 quick things I'm loving this week.

Dear Friends,

I wanted to connect with you real quick to share three small things I'm enjoying right now, because maybe you will too, and they will improve your week.

1) The Grail Prayer
 I have no idea why this is called "The Grail prayer," but apparently it is (Thank you, Google!). I stumbled upon it in a collection of prayers in a book I'm reading, and I just love its perfect simplicity. If we pray with this simple intention every day, how could we not grow in holiness?

Lord Jesus, I give you my hands to do your work.
I give you my feet to follow your way.
I give you my eyes to see as you do.
I give you my tongue to speak your words.
I give you my mind that you may think in me.
I give you my spirit that you may pray in me.
Above all, I give you my heart that you may love in me
your Father and all mankind.
I give you my whole self so that you may grow in me,
so that it is you, Lord Jesus, 
who live and work and pray in me.

Did you know that you can type "" into your browser and it will open a  new Google doc for you, ready to go? This has been life-changing for me as I probably create a dozen new Google docs each day. It's the small stuff, right? Enjoy!

3) An over-the-sink colander
Where has this thing been all my life? We recently put in a new kitchen sink, and Dan bought me this adjustable colander to go with it. I am amazed! I am in love! Am I easy to please, or what?

How about you? What small things are making your life better these days?

God bless your week,

PS: Speaking of good things, I have to remind you to register for the (free!) Catholic Moms Summit I'm hosting next month. With 80 fantastic presenters, this is one event you will not want to miss!

Manual for Marriage

Dan and I wrote a book together! It's one part reflective essays (by him and by me) and one part resources (prayers, Scripture, teachings of the Church, wisdom from the saints). I am praying this book will bless your marriage!
