Catholic Sistas 2014 Year in Review

Happy new year, friends! Can you believe 2014 has come to a close? Each year I am excited to look back and see what we have accomplished as friends. As I started the year in review post, it became evident that a longer list made better sense than last year’s Top 10 most popular posts for 2014. A longer list also gives new folks a good snapshot at the wide range of the topics we write.

In addition to blogging, we continue to have a strong presence on Facebook with our daily prayer requests and What’s For Dinner? threads, on Instagram with our Lenten and {new this year!} Advent photo challenges, and on Pinterest with our over 150 boards. With such carved out boards, you can find anything you need!

If you are new to Catholic Sistas, please sign up so you can receive our weekly articles! If you are currently receiving our e-mails, but not yet following us on Instagram, Pinterest, or Facebook, please do so! It’s a great place to personally connect with many of our Ink Slingers. We look forward to getting to know you all better in 2015 – please continue to pray for the mission of the blog and the writers as we move forward. And, please know that we pray for all of your intentions as well.

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.
