It’s been almost 2 years since I created Maronite Mum.
When I created it I had a couple of months old baby, two toddlers, in the middle of scary times with the Pandemic, and no one knew what would happen in the future. However, Maronite Mum was not created in a moment, it was an idea, a thought at first, from years before.
I love to write. Especially, I love to write about God and His love for us. Maybe none of you know this, but I never spoke English at home. I was born in Venezuela – a Spanish speaking country – and lived there all of my school and university years, graduating as a lawyer with honours. I had a blog in Spanish and life was passing by normally.
When I came to Australia in 2014 with a shockingly broken english, a suit case, and a big question mark drawn into my future, I would never would’ve guessed that this page would exist. But Gods plans aren’t ours. They become ours when we surrender to Him.
I always doubted myself thinking I would never have a blog or write again because my english was so bad. But I had a lot of support and encouragement from my family, and God kept knocking on the door, keeping that thought alive in my heart.
So one day, Maronite Mum was created. Logo, webpage, and social media. I only expected a few followers, maybe a few mums from anywhere in the world that might feel encouraged and united in the same goal of raising little catholic children while keeping God in our lives. It is so hard to have a spiritual life as a mum of little ones, that I needed something to keep me accountable and share with like-minded mothers.
What a journey!!
Today I say GOOD BYE to my old logo…
But stay tuned…
