While at Mass recently, I was praying before the Infant of Prague statue asking God's guidance with my storytelling business. I had been doing a novena to the Infant of Prague too. With the outbreak of Covid 19, my business came to a complete standstill~previously I had been doing about 18 performances a month. While praying about what to do now with my business, an idea came to me ~ to make videos using my puppets and storytelling skills to teach the faith. This was something I never had considered before. I know that it was my guardian angel's and/or the Infant of Prague's idea.
My husband and I have been married 26 years and are the parents of six children ranging in age from 25 to 14. Two of our sons serve in the military: one is a Marine and the other is in the National Guard and two of our daughters are in nursing school. Our remaining two children are a junior in high school and an 8th grader. We are active members of a traditional Latin Mass parish in Kansas.
Our Sunday Visitor contacted me awhile back to write children's saint stories for their upcoming new magazine, Catholic Kids! The first issue will be published December, 2020. (Since magazines prepare their content months in advance, I already have written for them several saint stories.)
Before we had children I taught 2nd grade in a Catholic school and have now been homeschooling for twenty-one years. Some of our children have attended public school for high school.
My storytelling business, Never Too Old For Stories has given me the opportunity to tell 100's of stories. (www.NeverTooOldForStories.com) I tell stories in schools, libraries and senior homes. I also perform historical reenactments for schools and libraries portraying various characters such as Nancy Hart (a Revolutionary War patriot) and Elizabeth Van Lew (A spy for the Union army during the Civil War)
