By Martina Kreitzer

Martina is a cradle Catholic, wife to Neil, and mother to eight kiddos here {and three in heaven}– 4/96-12/19. 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.

I’m new to this whole photo challenge thing. How does it work exactly? I understand I’m supposed to post pictures and tag you in them, but of what? On the pin all it has are one word phrases? What do you mean by Symbol or Suffering or any of the other words you have? Im sorry, I just want to make sure I’m doing it right. 🙂

Allis, glad you’ll be joining us! The words for the day are used to inspire the photo you will take for the day. So, for example…”suffering” could be something as simple as a picture of the crucifix if you happen to be at church…in my case, I might take a picture of something that causes me to suffer {washing a mountain of laundry, yard work, etc.}. There is no limit to what you can take a picture of, just tie it back to Lent somehow and it’s all good!

Have a look at our Instagram account and scroll back to the pictures that were posted during Advent for that challenge and see how we did them. You can also search using the hashtag #CSAdvent or even #CSLentIPJ to see what pictures looked like last year.

I hope this helps!
