Austin Catholic New Media Column: Part 3 of 5 – Setting Our Families Ablaze – Integration

Set your families ablaze through integration of the faith into life.



  1. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your thoughts prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing
    my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?

    • Thanks for your kind words. Sorry for the delay. We were unable to access the site from our vacation spot. With regard to your own writing, begin with prayer, asking that God would reveal to you what he would like you to share with others. Carry a pad and pen with you. As ideas come, jot them down on that sheet of paper. Keep it with you. Also, look at what is going on in your own life, and how God is working in it. Have you received an insight as a result of something that has happened? If you see an intersection between what you are experiencing and what is coming to you from your prayer time and your notes, that probably is the topic. At that point, try to organize the idea into a few bullet points that others can implement in their life. Or a few bullet points that you’ve learned through the experience. Then pray and begin to write. Let us know if this helps. God bless and thanks again!
