Turn Off Your Autopilot Mom
Question: I love my faith and that doesn’t change, but as a busy mom of two toddlers I don’t have the same time I used to to spontaneously go to adoration prayer journal, or research news – simply to invest. I am in a rut and on auto pilot with a lot of brain fog. I don’t want to be here and I know its normal, but do you have any advice on practical ways to reconnect with our Lord on a heart level. I just want to feel connected, even to a saint, something. I know the truth, but I feel numb. I’d love a strong, loving boost out of this complacency, I want to do something different, be reminded of the adventure he has us on, but I’m so tired.

Screen Time - Is it Damaging My Kids?
Question: I want Catholic advice on screen time. Not for myself, but for my kids. Not just TV, but having parents that constantly look at their phones and computers throughout the day. Am I going to be damaging my child as a working mom? How do I balance this necessity of checking emails and phone calls with quality time with my little ones?

Catholic Feminism
Question: “As a Catholic woman who wears the hats of mom, wife, and professional, how do you live out true authentic Catholic feminism? I am not asking for the ideal, but the reality of what it looks like in these areas in a normal lived out week. I have so many friends who are feminist in the secular sense, and they bond together and fight and grieve over the same issues they share, but I don’t have a good idea what Catholic feminism looks likes nor feel part of a larger community of women fighting to live it authentically. Help.”
