While at Mass recently, Christine was praying before the Infant of Prague statue asking God's guidance with her storytelling business. She had been doing a novena to the Infant of Prague too. With the outbreak of Covid 19, her business came to a complete standstill~previously she had been doing about 18 performances a month. While praying about what to do now with her business, an idea came to her ~ to make videos using her puppets and storytelling skills to teach the faith. This was something she never had considered before. Christine believes that her guardian angel and/or the Infant of Prague gave her the idea. As she thought and prayed she felt led to creating this First Communion program.
Christine and her husband have been married 26 years and are the parents of six children ranging in age from 25 to 14. Two of their sons serve in the military: one is a Marine and the other is in the National Guard and two of their daughters are in nursing school. The remaining two children are a junior in high school and an 8th grader. They are active members of a traditional Latin Mass parish in Kansas.
Known for her storytelling skills, Christine was contacted by Our Sunday Visitor to write children's saint stories in their upcoming new magazine, Catholic Kids!. The first issue of the magazine will be published December, 2020. (Since magazines prepare their content months in advance, she has already written several of the saint stories already for them.)
Prior to having children, Christine taught 2nd grade in a Catholic school and has now been homeschooling for twenty-one years. Some of her children have attended public school for high school.
Her storytelling business, Never Too Old For Stories has given her the opportunity to tell 100's of stories. (www.NeverTooOldForStories.com) She tells stories in schools, libraries and senior homes. She also performs 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)
