Today marks the fifth anniversary of my blog! Time has flown by. Over the past five years, I shined a spotlight on why we should embrace virtue. Vice and virtue oppose each other, and when we turn away from sin, we draw closer to virtue. In turn, virtue draws us closer to God. To me, that’s a mighty good reason for embracing virtue, as I would like to grow closer to God.
I’ve seen the blog morph over the years, by adding some posts on spirituality. Sharing information about the saints, and how they embodied virtue, brought forth a sense of spirituality to the blog posts. This spirituality only enhanced the emphasis on embracing virtue.
As we continued this journey, together, I began to review good books written by Catholic authors. Many of these books either directly dealt with virtue and spirituality or had characters who espoused virtue worth modeling.
This Anniversary is Worth Celebrating…
The business I started five years ago, was nothing more than a blog and a dream. From there, I published a children’s book. Then I began to speak publicly on the Catholic faith. I’ve branched out and done some freelance writing. Now, I am officially adding a fifth element to my business as a manuscript editor. Appropriate to add a fifth element as I celebrate my fifth anniversary, don’t you think?
My business continues to grow because God has much for me to do. Today, I set aside my usual posts to say “thank you” for following my blog, for purchasing my book, for asking me to speak at your parish/event, for reading my articles, and for entrusting me with your manuscripts.
Please look around the website today, and notice the changes I made. You will see a newly designed:
