      Hey, who knew? Voting early is one of the great goods of life and YES I DID!!! (If you can’t, at least make sure you vote! Ok? Ok.) Also, these little styluses? Sure to delight the 5yo farmer in MY life... 🙃🤟😂 ...

      Such a fun audiobook. I loved reading Rob Reid’s novel After On, so it should be no surprise that this had me finding every excuse to listen (and constantly checking used book prices and debating whether I should buy it because I WILL WANT TO REREAD IT). Such fun. Yes, go read it. Unless you’re sensitive to strong language...but still. ...

      Highly recommended. 💙 A current reading of Mama Mary, #BlessedMother by @catholichipster is full of wisdom (and posting ideas in case you are inclined that way 😇) and truth and goodness. It’s well done, worth a read, and definitely something you should share. 😏 ...

      Wow. Nope, it doesn’t tell you who to vote for, but rather lays out the priorities that define “Catholic.” So well written and clear, like a course to bolster you as you pray over your ballot choices. Highly recommended. ...
