Big Announcement at Green 4 God!!

Today I’m excited to announce the launch of my new blog: Seeking Suburban Sainthood  S.S.S. is where I’ll talk about the struggles and temptations we all face in striving for holiness and, ultimately, for sainthood.  It’s where I’ll share my imperfections (well, not ALL of them…) and the occasional success, insight, lesson learned, or reflection on all things spiritual.

I hope you’ll join me at SSS not only to read but to relate and share your struggles as well.  Quite frankly, I need your help.  Perhaps I’ll be able to help you in return.

Hope to see you there!

Blessings,
Laura

What IS Suburban Sainthood?

Laura2aLowRes (2)

Welcome to Seeking Suburban Sainthood!  S.S.S. is where I’ll be sharing my own struggles to attain holiness in my ordinary, suburban, mini-van-owning, carpool-driving, soccer mom life.  Given the fact that I struggle ALOT in my spiritual life, I have a feeling that there will be plenty to share with you.

But it’s not just about me.  It’s about all of us and the spiritual challenges that come with a suburban lifestyle.  It’s also about a new attitude toward sainthood.  After all, sainthood isn’t just for the dead.  St. Paul called the early Christians “saints” when he addressed them in his epistles.  In his eyes, a saint was merely a follower of Christ.  So if that’s the case, all Christians should consider themselves saints, albeit imperfect ones.

The goal here is to help each other become better saints so that, when the time comes, we’ll be ready to enter the Kingdom of Heaven together.  So, here’s the deal-I’ll help you with your sainthood if you help me with mine.  Who’s with me?

May your journey be blessed!

The Suburban Saint (S.S.)

Road Trip-The Aftermath

 
Wow!  I learned so much, met so many amazing people, and received so much encouragement and support that my heart just might burst!  Seriously, it was awesome!  I will be posting pictures of some of the cool people I met while I was playing the #CMNSelfie Scavenger Hunt created by Erin McCole Cupp at Will Write For Tomato Pie after this post.  So, watch your inbox!
 
Because of contacts that I made on the trip, I am now working on a book proposal for a major Catholic publisher as well as a new blog concept. (Insert squeal of excitement here!)
Soon you will see only green, stewardship-of-Creation posts here at Green 4 God.  To address all the other blog posts that I wish to write, I will be posting under the upcoming blog, Suburban Sainthood. 
Until SS is up and running I will continue to post here all the things that I want to say.  “Why” you say?  Because it’s my blog and I want to, that’s why!
