As a Catholic who loves her faith and a frequent adventurer who’s always up for a new journey, I thought it would be fun to combine my two passions into a new blog. I’m a wife and mom, a writer, a speaker and an impassioned traveler. I hope to use this space to share new places I discover, to offer tips for destinations and simplifying the journey, to meet fellow pilgrims and most especially to share my faith. Please introduce yourself in the comments below and share your ideas about what you’d like to see here at the site. LMH

    Lisa, so glad that you started this blog! We too love to travel. Our family has been in all 50 states and also has traveled to Europe several times with our four children. We have made visits in countless Catholic churches and shrines everywhere we have traveled. So this blog is probably going to be one of my favorites! Thanks for starting this blog!

    Lisa, I just got Kelly Wahlquist’s email about this new blog. Congratulations!

    I, too, love to travel , so I look forward to reading everything you have to offer! One thing I will share is that I don’t go anywhere or book any hotels without first checking them out on http://www.tripadvisor.com. That website is a godsend for getting the real scoop on hotels and fun things to do in a city.

    My other discovery is http://www.vrbo.com, where you can rent homes from people in different cities. I gravitate towards the eclectic and unusual, and this is a great place to find that. God bless you, Lisa, and I’ll see you in August!
