Doing it Wrong
Ever get asked to describe yourself?  I've spent the past two weeks in interviews and one of the favorite questions is, "Describe yourself in three words."   My first thoughts?  "I don't know." or "You're joking right?" The problem with giving single word d...

Fasting Wednesday
Everyone who reads this knows I'm a big fan of Fr. John Riccardo of Our Lady of Good Counsel. He's calling for people to  pray and fast for our country as we prepare for the upcoming election.   Here is his first talk, but I recommend listening to all of th...

Got to Catch Them All
A sign outside the  Cathedral Basilica of Saint Augustine. I love this sign.  Why?  Because Catholicism is about proposing a greater relationship with God, and offering the fastest surest way to grow in intimacy with the mystery which is the infinite loving...

How To Be Holy When All I Do is Change Diapers
Last year, I participated in the online Catholic Conference 4 Moms.  Today, I found the video of it up on Youtube.  So today, you're getting my attempt to give a Ted type talk.

Flooding Feels Like Forever
As a kid, I remember our house flooding twice.  The first time, we were watching outside, thinking the rain would come in through the door.  Anyone who has ever been in a flood knows water doesn't work that way.  You walk into your room, thinking everything...

What I Know
Monday, I interviewed for a job. Tuesday, I interviewed for a job. Wednesday, I shipped a child off for college and waited to hear about either job. One is more suitable logistically, but will involve me hitting the books.  The other fits my interests but w...

Small Success Thursday
It's Thursday...and I write these things before we get to Thursday so I have to come clean. We haven't made it to the barber's yet.  We have procured shoes and lunch boxes and school supplies.  I'm trying to summon the will to fill out forms.   It's going t...

So Are the Rest of Us too Tepid? Or is it Just Me?
This past week, several friends in the Catholic blogosphere lost their spots as featured regular columnists at a national paper I sometimes write for and respect.  However, as the third person fell, I had to wonder, why are they being dismissed?  All three ...

For some reason, this piece never quite got off the ground. Resending.
Today, I'm feeling it. The house got smaller. We are now a family of ten, tomorrow it will be nine. Each time it shrinks as one leaves for college, it gets harder. I have a piece on it over at Aleteia. I wrote her an ema...

Over at Aleteia Today Too!
So today I take on the issue of how to teen whisper. It's similar to toddler whispering, but taller.   Please, go click, like, share, etc and enjoy.  Meanwhile, I'm going to pack up some kids for college...(Sniff), and maybe write about sending off my youn...

Catholic Writer, Wife and Mother
Introduction
My name is Sherry Antonetti.  I write about the trials and humor of raising children, reflection articles on the Catholic faith lived, and profiles of everyday holiness.  Why do I write on these things?  To discover the deeper beauty of the martyrdom lived out moment by moment, and to avoid being discouraged or bogged down by minutia.  Living out one's faith is an incremental experience of errands, stories, to do lists and details, it is not that we got to everything, but how we treated everyone in the process of trying to get to everything that reveals how much we live in the Holy Spirit, or how much we are estranged.

My husband and I decided to splurge for our date night. Everything we tried was delicious, different, and by itself worthy of being the highlight of the evening. We will return again, the food was a visual, textual gourmet experience and made us feel as though, while we have on many occasions eaten out and enjoyed the meal, that night, we dined. My favorite though was the beer reduction shrimp and grits. Magnificent!
