God shows up in my life every single day, every minute, every second. I’m actually a survivor of the Route 91 mass shooting that happened in Las Vegas. It was the largest mass shooting in modern-day American history, and that day, I went to celebrate my birthday in Las Vegas. It was really the unthinkable. […]

Many years ago, when I was trying to come up with a name for my production company, without missing a beat my mother said, “Call it St. Amos.” Neither of us knew that there was a real saint by that name—we just thought it sounded cool. Well, not only was St. Amos cool, he […]

Mother’s Day is beautiful because it’s a recognition of womanhood, not just motherhood. Sisterhood, daughterhood, we are women. The fullness of that. I don’t mean just motherhood. I mean how society sometimes will say, she’s just a mom. She’s just a housewife, she’s just a … No! Our ability to bring forth life is extraordinary, […]

When I think about the Seed of Life the thing that sticks out to me is the word life. And I think life is something that is just taken for granted. It’s kind of a reminder that life starts and ends with God. He’s involved in our life all the way through. In every moment of […]

When I met my husband, I wasn’t praying for love. I wasn’t praying for a boyfriend or a relationship. I was praying to draw closer to the Lord. I was at a crossroads in my life, and my prayer was simply that the Lord have His way in my life and that He turn my heart towards […]

Being a mom of three is the greatest gift God has given me. It has not only changed my perspective but showed me what matters. In the midst of it all, I am constantly seeking ways to strengthen my personal relationship with Jesus to, in turn, instill my faith to my children. How are you being bold […]

For two days last week we were able to offer 20 women the opportunity to slow down and learn about the meaning of Lent with Fr. Charbel. We then painted our own beautiful journal covers guided by the talented local watercolor artist Suzy Cyr.

Sometimes it's good to remember our story; to look back at where we started, how far we've come, and through it all, see God's hand at work.

Advent, which began on Sunday, is the beginning of the new year in the church. The word itself means coming. The Advent wreath is a beautiful opportunity for prayer as the candles are lit, especially together with the family. "The family that prays together..."

I came to believe as truth about who I am. I’ve got to offer that love and space up to others. Or what right do I have to it myself? There's no other way. We've got to do this together.

We’re all born with this amazing knowingness of who we are and then somehow along the way we just...forget. or probably more appropriately stated, we learn it away, being very powerfully pushed and herded into shapes and jobs and relationships that someone else, some society, some education system, some family upbringing decided for us. Not nefariously, but out of love and concern. But in the process, we lose the ability to hear our own voice. And believe me, as much of an overachiever as I have been in my life, as much success as some would perceive that I have had, there is absolutely nothing that satisfies my need to live life, fully contributing and participating open throttle, to my absolute capacity for joy, passion, forgiveness and love, as does answering the call of my inner voice. Because that voice has no agenda other than to live truthfully and love fully. And that's what this symbol reminds me, every day.

As we continued our journey in Israel with Nia Peeples, the age-old question as to the identity of Mary Magdalene became a topic of regular discussion. With child-like intrigue, she asked many people who we came upon what their thoughts/beliefs were on Mary Magdalene. If you have learned something about Mary Magdalene on your faith journey, please […]

Today we are remembering back to July 22, 2016, the first official feast day of St. Mary Magdalene in the church, and the first day that Nia Peeples walked through the doors of My Saint My Hero. We had been introduced to each other through a mutual friend, and because Nia loved our story and […]

My sweet sister and I sat in the car the other night and she asked me what it meant to hear God. And I said, “What the heck, lets just ask Him to speak to us.” We sat there, waiting on God and after not even 2 minutes she said, “Madi, God showed me a […]
