Over the weekend this little blog had lots of new visitors and new friends thanks to my talk featured on the Catholic Conference 4 Moms. I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself and The Fam, and to welcome you. I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m Stephanie Weinert, wife to Peter and mom to Mark (4), Luke (3) and Garrett (18 months). We live in Charlotte, NC and hope you come visit us here in this beautiful little city.
Despite my eye rolling and assurances to God that I would never date someone I met on the internet, I met my husband on Catholic Match, and you can read that story here.
Before I was married, I worked for my Dad, Steve Wood, at his marriage and family apostolate called Family Life Center International. I ran the marketing division, the young adult ministry which was called NEXTWAVE, and I hosted a radio show on the EWTN Radio Network for young adults (also called NEXTWAVE) for 6 years – right up to the week I got married. It was a blessed time in my life – I traveled a lot, I met so many wonderful people, and I learned a lot about family life before I had one of my own. I’m really grateful for those years and that good work.
My new life as a stay-at-home mom is the hardest and most wonderful job I’ve ever had. This year we also started homeschooling our eldest, and so far so crazy and so good!
In my “spare” time (ha – I know) I read, I (try to) workout from home, I cook awesome “man food” recipes, I paint and repaint the furniture in my house (follow me on Instagram for that story), I teach classes on essential oils, and I beg the Hubs for more date nights.
Today is the last day of the Catholic Conference 4 Moms, and it seems you can re-view my talk, or view it for the last time, for free today if you’re registered (or register today and hopefully you’ll still get the Day 4 talks email).
Looking forward to connecting with you new readers! And the rest of y’all…well you already know I love you. =)
