I am not afraid. I was born to do this!

— Joan of Arc

St. Joan of Arc was a lowly maiden called by God to defeat the enemy on behalf of her country. She accepted the task, won the victory, suffered greatly, received her eternal reward and was declared a saint.

We as Catholic wives and mothers have been called to this vocation, to this particular husband, to these particular children. Like St. Joan, we don’t know where it all will lead, and we know that it’s just plain hard to embrace it and daily trudge forward. And we, like St. Joan of Arc, we have been wounded and can get discouraged, feeling as though “I’m the only one struggling.” And like Joan, we are called to greatness and sainthood.

Sisters, I started this blog to explore some of these ideas and challenges and to bring us mamas together to ponder them. Will you join me?
