Welcome to Sunday Snippets – A Catholic Carnival, where a group of Catholic bloggers meet up at RAnn's blog to share their posts for the week and answer a question.
This week's question: Introduce yourself.
Answer: I am a freelance writer and author of three books, a retired school psychologist (who has worked with both children and adults, ages 2 - 82 in schools, social service agencies, and private practice settings), and a retired educator (elementary through college age). I have a Master of Science degree in School Psychology and a Master of Arts degree in Theology. I am an oblate with the Community of St. John, a parish and diocesan presenter, and have served as a leader in adult education formation for twenty-three years. My areas of specialty include: saints, spirituality, sacraments, and moral theology. I am also a trained crisis pregnancy counselor, a trained sidewalk counselor, and a prayer intercessor who has served the pro-life movement in these positions in both Illinois and Kansas. I am the author of the award-wining weblog, Catholic Fire, for the past ten years and a contributor to an additional five Catholic weblogs. I have been married to my husband, William (Bill) for the past twenty-two years and have one adult stepson. We live in Wichita, Kansas.
