Sponsor Spotlight: Mamas Movin' with Mary

Today, I would like to introduce you to one of our other Sponsors, Mamas Movin' With Mary. Simply put, the Mamas are a group of moms who got together to pray a rosary while they walked together.  From these Saturday morning walks, grew a deeper devotion to Christ and praying the rosary (and some half marathons too!!).  And out of that came Mamas Movin' with Mary and their famous tee!

 

(The following is a review of the shirt and information about the Mama's charitable work.  This is being republished from a post I wrote in September 2010).

I ordered one right after I saw it. It came in the mail just a few days later. It was cutely wrapped with a blue ribbon, with a one decade rosary attached; perfect to pray with on your walks/runs. I do have to say that the shirt it A LOT cuter in person than the picture on their website shows. The shirt is black with blue lettering. It is more of a fitted cut, so be prepared to order one size larger if you do not like your shirts too tight. I purchased a medium and it was a perfect fit! The cut of the shirt is flattering. And the material is an athletic-wicking material. But, it is a real nice, soft one, not like many of the scratchy race shirts I have gotten!


The day I got it, I took the shirt out for a "test-drive" and wore it to the gym while I biked. Well, it worked perfectly! It kept me cool and dry. Then, this weekend, I wore it out and about with khaki pants. The t-shirt is such a nice cut and fit that you do not have to wear it just for working out. So, I am sold on the shirt.

This is me wearing the shirt during my first marathon.

20% of the profits from the sales of the t-shirt go to the Run the Race Club of Columbus. Run the Race is part of the Brian Muha foundation. Run the Race works with the kids of Columbus to give them activities to participate in and to be a positive influence in the lives of children that may not have many of them.


This charity really struck me because, although I did not know Brian Muha, I was working as a Residence Director at Franciscan University when he was killed. And, from the time he was abducted, to the time of the end of the trial of the accused, I remember Brian's mother and founder of Run the Race Club, Rachel Muha, being such a true example of what holiness, Christian charity and forgiveness are meant to be.


And, thanks to the Mama's generosity, one lucky registrant/donor will get the "Hail Mary's" tee!! 

Thank you Mamas for supporting this fundraiser!

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

Yonanas and a yummy protein chocolate peanut butter ice cream

I have to admit, I have a sweet tooth.  A big sweet tooth.  I blame it on genetics.  My dad loves sweets and I think my grandmother, his mother, subsisted only on foods that contained sugar.  But, when you are working on eating healthy and bringing the whole family along with you, things like ice cream, cookies and cakes have to replaced by something better.

So, when Lena from JOYfilled family posted about the Yonanas she got, I wanted to try it!  Yonanas makes "ice cream" from frozen bananas.  I have heard of making "ice cream" this way before and I have tried it in our blended, but it usually came out quite liquidy.  So, when we got a gift card for Amazon, I knew exactly what I wanted to buy.

I have used the Yonanas several times and I love it!!  The consistency of the "ice cream" is very smooth, light and creamy.  My 4 year old, who is a very picky eater, loves his new "ice cream."  Now, my older boys could not be fooled . . . they immediatel…
