Simplifying truly frees your mind and soul. We cut our income by 2/3 when I left my corporate job to stay home when our 4th child was born. All the sacrifices we've made to be able to do this have been worth it. The kids still talk about the picnics we've had (instead of stopping for fast food). Less "stuff" to take care of means more time to focus on what's important. God is good! -- while it was scary to take the plunge into His calling, He has carried us and blessed us abundantly.

Mission Statement|Catholic Digest connects with readers through personal stories of triumphs and struggles, joys and challenges, and also the lighter side of Catholic living. We are a source of support and encouragement for those who love their faith, those who struggle with their faith, and those who long to learn more about the richness of Catholic tradition.
We seek the positive in the world and in our Church. We emphasize those things that Catholics are doing right and well as a means of inspiring and encouraging others to do the same. We are hope-filled, optimistic, and forward-looking.
We highlight the goodness and beauty of God’s creation and the truths of His Church. We find abundant joy in Catholic living and aim to express that joy through inspiring words, images, and ideas.
We move our readers beyond inspiration and toward action. We give Catholics the information, tools, and resources they need to answer God’s call to holiness and bring the light of Christ to others.
Catholic life is both uniquely joyful and uniquely challenging. At Catholic Digest, we invite all to join us as we encourage and support one another in the joyful, challenging, important work of faith and family living.
