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!

Fasting and the Current State of Our Church

I love researching diets.  If it is new and popular, I probably have read about it some and maybe have even tried it.  Lately, fasting has gained popularity.  You can find books that will provide research on just how good fasting is for the body.  And, I have been intrigued, mainly because I am horrible at fasting and the thought of restricting myself from eating food completely sounds too extreme. 



As Catholics we are called to days of fasting and abstinence, and for as strong as I like to think I am, I am quite a wimpy "faster."  But, after reading a great deal about fasting and its physical benefits, I started to feel like God was asking me to get more serious about fasting, not for the physical benefits but for the spiritual ones.  My husband and I were out for a walk the other night and I was talking about my new found respect for fasting and how I feel called to do it more, for spiritual reasons, and I started to speak about how amazing it is that fasting has so many …

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48


There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  


About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …

Settling In

I find it ironic that the last post I posted was about our move that did not happen and how God wanted me to be moldable.  When I typed those words and prayed those words, "God make me moldable," "Move to Wisconsin" was NOT what I was envisioning.  But, sometimes God's will is surprising and unexpected.

So, here we are.  18 days as Wisconsinites.  So many people have called and texted, asking me how we are doing and I often find my words fall short.  I am better at reflecting and writing out my thoughts, so this is for all those who have asked and are wondering . . .


We are doing well.  The move has felt very natural in so many ways.  It feels comfortable here. I haven't felt out of place or a "fish out of water" here at all. The kids all like it here.  Some miss their friends tremendously, which is expected.  One of my "littles" has shown some regression, also expected, but everyone is adjusting so well to the new house and neighborhood. …
