Exciting News!

Most of the time, I try to focus this blog on my "home" life and I don't mention too many things I am involved in outside of these four walls, but since this impacts the occupants, I want to share!

I am in training to become a Catechist for the Good Shepherd program and I am getting ready to start Part II of Level I. Our mentors at training encouraged us to begin using our training as soon as we could.

Last month, another student, who is also a homeschool Mom, and I presented the "idea" of the program to our homeschool group.

During the presentation, we discovered 2 more trained catechists who were very excited to help.

Then, someone mentioned that the very parish we were having our meeting at, had a room with what they believed were Good Shepherd materials in it...and that we should check it out before we left.

We have around 40 kids on the "waiting list" to participate. The parents were all very excited and eager to help with the program.

In all my activities/ministries/volunteer work...etc... I have NEVER seen such enthusiasm!

We have checked the room's perfect, they have almost everything we will need ,which is extensive, which makes it all the more amazing.

It's CRAZY how everything is falling into's almost too perfect...but we all feel that this is the stirring of the Holy Spirit. This program is truth and light. I am blessed to be a part of it. I encourage anyone reading this post to discover this treasure HERE 

"Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth."


  1. Praise be to WONDERFUL!!!! It really is amazing, when you sit back and realize it, how the Holy Spirit works in our lives.

    I'm happy for you, Debi!

  2. that's great! I have always wanted to learn more about this. Where will you have the 'meetings'? is it just for your homeschool group?

  3. Erika, anyone who is interested in learning more about the Good Shepherd program is welcome to join us on Monday, September 12th at 6:30 PM in the basement of the old rectory at St. Francis parish. Feel free to bring your friend you told me about. We would love to have you!
