About Me

My goal and purpose in life is to bring my family, kicking and screaming if I must, to heaven. The best way I can do that is by loving God, my husband, and my children in that order specifically.

Messy Buns and Latin Chant was started to stave off the stay-at-home-mom blues, but I quickly fell in love with writing and the wonderful world of blogging. My little corner of the internet over here is a place to share my thoughts as a wife, mother, Catholic, and American.

I was raised in a big Catholic family on a steady diet of traditional liturgy (Old and New Rite), 4H, and homeschooling. I studied psychology and dabbled in philosophy in college, then met a handsome engineering student, and settled into domestic life. We are striving to raise our expanding family with traditional values, and end up being about half-crunchy parents most of the time. If you ask my husband what our “parenting philosophy” is, he will respond: “We don’t negotiate with terrorists.”

On weekends, I work as an organist at our parish, playing both the Novus Ordo and Tridentine Masses. I truly do love both but have to admit, there really isn’t anything as magnificent as Gregorian Chant.

I write for Catholicmom.com monthly and usually write here once or twice a week. You can find me on facebook, instagram, and twitter a lot more often than that too. Scroll on down to the bottom of the page to see what I’m up to on the rest of the internet.

Thanks for stopping by, and y’all come on back soon now, ya’ hear?
