Fabulously Featured: Heart of a Mother

Welcome to Catholic Sistas’ newest series, featuring some of our friends in the Catholic blogging world entitled Fabulously Featured which will run on Wednesdays. I have always wanted to introduce you to some new blogs to follow and support, but seriously lacked the time to put this together before now. In a Facebook group of fellow Catholic women bloggers, I asked ladies to answer some questions for this series, and they were all too excited to participate! I give you their answers in their own words. 🙂

HeartofaMother

 

Jenny at Heart of a Mother really gets to the heart’s desire of many of us Catholic mommas. She takes everyday internal dialogue and turns it into an opportunity to find Christ and shine for Him. If you’re on the lookout for something that is introspective when it comes to the Catholic faith, look no further. Read the feature here and then head over to her blog to find some creative and unique ways to find and call Christ into your heart. You won’t be disappointed. 🙂

Jenny

ESTABLISHED:

2007

THEME:

How my faith guides me as a Catholic homeschooling wife & mother.

INSPIRATION/MOTIVATION:

I first wrote as a way to recreate from a distance a weekly mother’s group. I had moved across the country and missed talking about my faith with my friends, so I wrote weekly reflections on the upcoming Gospels. Today, I want to write more as a part of taking care of mom. Writing brings me clarity, and I enjoy the process.

FAVORITE ELEMENT:

I process things through writing, so by the end of my posts, I often will be able to finally organize my chaotic thoughts. It is then that I draw conclusions and find peace.

FAVORITE POST:

Normal, Average, Regular Homeschoolers? and all of my Little Flowers Girls Club® posts

BALANCE:

I am a very haphazard blogger. To blog regularly, I literally have to set a timer for 30 minutes when I want to write and just write. Sometimes good stuff comes out, sometimes not.

AUDIENCE:

Other Catholic homeschooling mamas.
 Heart of a Mother

CATCH PHRASE/TAGLINE:

“The most beautiful masterpiece of the heart of God is the heart of a mother.” St. Therese of Lisieux ~ I chose this, because I wanted to write about how my motherhood brings me closer to God.

ADVICE:

If they like to write, they should just start and see how it goes. Our Church is beautifully diverse, so no two Catholic blogs are the same. I always remember that if each post touches the heart of just one other Catholic mom, it was worth writing.

About Martina Kreitzer

Martina is a cradle Catholic, wife to Neil, and mother to seven kiddos here {and three in heaven}– 4/96-1/17. She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.
