About Me

Hi, I'm Corrine

I am a blessed wife to my husband of many years and proud mom of 3 beautiful children. I am passionate about helping moms find Christ in their ordinary routines and deepen their Catholic faith.

I never really knew the Father’s love until I became a mother, so motherhood is really my continuous story of conversion.

This blog is a place for me to share my best days and my worst days. I want to be a support for other moms who struggle with home life and parenting.

I love to share solutions, reflections, and resources that have helped me see how God is nurturing us each day through the little moments.

Keep reading below to learn more about me and the blog!

My story

I was always a dreamer, a writer, and a romantic since I was young. I never wanted to grow up except in the moments when I was farthest away from God. Thankfully God gave me the grace of conversion in high school and then a year later, He gave me my husband who is my greatest support.

I was devoted to being a “nice person” and to the Catholic faith, but I didn’t really come to personally know God until I became a mother. The more children I had, the more I came to know Him through the laughter and the tears. We had three children within a time period of 3 years and 1 month. To say it was a little crazy is an understatement but His plan is perfect! I wouldn’t change any moment.

Being stripped of my self-centeredness, I could open my heart to God more easily. I felt like I could identify with God in His parenting because I saw myself in my own children. My children’s stubbornness, temper tantrums, and rebellion were very similar to my own toward God. That is when God gave me a glimpse of how patient He is with me. Oh! How many times I have failed! Yet, God still loves me unconditionally in the same way that there is nothing my children could do to make me love them less.

And that realization alone changed how I saw my purpose, my sins and my image of God.

This unconditional love could cause many to believe that you can get away with whatever you want, but just as a child always wants the approval of their parent, so do I. And that is why I’m writing this blog. I honestly despise any attention toward me and have delayed creating this blog for too many years. I’m an introvert and love the simple life, but I am so much happier when I am following God’s will for me.

I have notebooks full of what I’ve been through and the thoughts, prayers, mindsets, and quotes that are getting me through the struggles of motherhood, home life, past sins, and actually living the Catholic faith. I saw that I really could have benefitted from this when I had first become a mother. That is why I feel an obligation to share it with you!!

I don’t want you to have to struggle when you don’t need to.

If a simple way of thinking can help you deepen your faith, love your family more deeply, or get through a rough time, then I will be the happiest person!

I hope you will stick around and we can get to know each other!

After reading this blog, I hope that you will begin to:

  • Practice consistent and deeper prayer
  • Be fully present to your children
  • Use your phones, social media and other distractions with a purpose
  • Embrace the ordinary life and childlikeness
  • Discover the Father's love by relating your own parenting
