If you’re hoping to find my Theology of the Body credentials here, you will be disappointed. I have none.
I read and study Theology of the Body as a hobby and for spiritual enrichment. In this blog, I share my personal reflections and understanding of the topic, and the fruit of my conversations with my husband, my friends and others.
I’m Catholic. I was raised Baptist and converted in high school in 2007. I believe and profess all that the Catholic Church believes, teaches and proclaims to be revealed by God. I belong to Mary with all that I am, and all that I have in this life and the next. (See True Devotion by St. Louis de Montfort if you want the shortest, easiest, safest path to Heaven!)
I am a full-time homemaker, so I spend most of my time with my mostly-delightful toddler and my snuggly, wiggly infant. I really enjoy crafts, and my hobbies include sewing clothes for myself and my babies, cross-stitching and knitting. Chad and I play board games. I read a lot, mostly in random tangents – must read all books in the local library about ___ now!
My husband, Chad Meyer, is a postdoc at Los Alamos National Lab. He simulates explosions. He studies Theology of the Body as a hobby, too. My older son, Henry Albert, currently enjoys stuffing his face, playing in the dirt, building with blocks, and reading one book 50 times in a row. He’s exceptionally cute, so I can’t risk posting pictures here in case you want to steal him. My younger son’s hobbies include blowing spit bubbles and grabbing his feet.
I love teaching, explaining, over-analyzing, correcting, reflecting and exhorting. So I think this blog will be good for me.
