I was born in Nicaragua but came to the USA when I was five, lived in Florida for 30 years. At the end of 2002, Todd and I met on CatholicMatch.com, we were just a mere 1,500 miles away from one another. ;) I was very intrigued that he was a convert from Southern Baptist yet he knew so much about Catholicism. Quickly I discovered that Todd and I share a lot of loves: the Blessed Sacrament, the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, and thirst for Him in all we do. But I must confess that I (a cradle Catholic) have learned a lot about our beautiful Mother Church through his quest for knowledge of her; the greatest of these is my new-found love and devotion to Our Blessed Mother (I would ignore her in the past). Needless to say, it was a match made in Heaven and we married in 2004 and now have five amazing children as blessings of our union.
I have a double Bachelors in Elementary and Primary Education and a Masters in Reading Education K-12. I tried to be a working mommy and also be part of my children's lives, but I was missing way too many milestones in their young lives. So I prayed....and in 2008, after more than fifteen years in the education field, I “retired” to begin a new career as full time mommy and home educator for our children. A world I felt so foreign to but now see as a total blessing for our growing family. I enjoy blogging for Raising Little Saints (RLS) for two reasons: 1. I love sharing all of the blessings in our life with others and 2. it helps me stay sane ;)
Thank you for this opportunity to serve you,
