Your Handy-Dandy List to Matrimony Resources

We are so excited about our next prayer campaign, which is set to begin on May 1! The title of the campaign is 40 Days for Sacred Matrimony. We couldn’t think of a better  way to announce the campaign than to come up with a list of great marriage resources for you all to visit, peruse, bookmark, or share. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook to see our daily petition buttons for you to share on your walls, to tweet, or to use in your own blog posts. We’d like to thank all our friends, and fellow contributors who helped us compile the list of intentions that make this campaign complete.

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.
