About Martina
I am a 30-something stay-at-home mom to six kiddos, 4/96 through 6/12. We recently decided to homeschool after many years in the public schools. In my "spare time," I serve as the chair for the Pastoral Council at my home parish of St. William in Round Rock and I help with our Adult Faith Formation program, from the planning committee to facilitating and mentoring incoming facilitators. I also enjoy photography as a hobby and once photographed with Ron Parks back in the day. I enjoy talking about all things Catholic and always look to infuse a little bit of humor whenever possible. You can also catch me writing at
