Dear Readers,

Greetings from the Midwest!

I’m glad you clicked over.  I’ve been having fun with this blog for 4 years, writing about whatever captures my fancy.  If you have any ideas for me, please click on my Contact page and drop me a line.

Biographical Information

In brief, I was born and raised on a farm.  Well, born in a hospital, then raised on a farm. I’ve got two dear parents, a sister, and a brother.

For those interested in my faith journey, I’ve written briefly about it HERE.

For those interested in such things as degrees, I have a BA in Art History and English Literature from Concordia College, MN, and a MA in Catholic Studies from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN.

But these are nothing, really, in comparison to the last 14 years of Childbearing and Rearing.  Now that’s an education.  And well worth it.

My 7 Little Blessings

I probably should have first mentioned my best friend–my husband.  We met and fell in love during my time in graduate school.  We are married and now have those 7 Little Blessings that you can see above.

My husband.  He’s my Web Master too.

And Now For the Important Questions

  1. Kim, if you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have 3 books, what would it be?

Of course the Bible is already available on the aforesaid deserted island, right?  In that case, I’d definitely grab my Roman Breviary from Baronius Press, my 1962 Missal, and my Complete Works of Shakespeare.  That oughtta keep me busy for awhile anyway.

Necessary for Deserted Islands

Now don’t assume I’m choosing The Complete Works of William Shakespeare because I’ve actually read the entire thing…oh, no.  I’m choosing it because I haven’t.

2.  And let’s say that an airplane drops off a weekly shipment of 3 food items not found on the island…what would you choose?

Wine, naturally, bread and cheese.  Of course, I’d want to order the most expensive wines possible, and I’d want them paired with my cheese.

Happy Hour!

3.  And finally, Kim, have you ever picked up a hitchhiker?


4.  Ok, one more question.  Do you veil at Mass?
