About Me

autumn_mist_path-wallpaper-1920x1080[1].jpg I’m a Catholic working mum of six much loved ones, blogging whenever I sense something written on my heart. I’m a member of the Blue Army of Fatima and also a Lay Associate of the Priesthood, which is an external prayer apostolate in which lay men and women share in the charism of the Handmaids of the Precious Blood.

For many long years, I was denied the right to be ME. I lived in a dark place then, depression and despair – my companions.

But there is a God above, and the turnaround in my life is testament to that. By the grace of the Most High, I am now free. I no longer live someone else’s life. I no longer live someone else’s hopes and dreams.

But the suffering, – all suffering – has value. To paraphrase Elisabeth Elliot – we have been accorded the privilege of suffering with Jesus, and we must now pour ourselves out for others. And that is what this blog is about. My posts on writingonmyheart are my ponderings on lives lived, being lived, and to be lived. It is my hope that they can be little lanterns to light up the path ahead.

For me and for you.




  1. From Marie:

    I have just ‘discovered’ you through Charlie’s and Peli’s blogs. A quick look through your blog tells me I have stumbled upon something beautiful. I’m looking forward to reading all your posts. ☺ The photos you post are breathtaking.

    What caught my attention was your Gravatar. I LOVE the Flower Fairies! Always have done since I was a little girl many, many years ago. Just seeing this brought back happy memories. Thank you.

    God bless you


    1. Welcome Marie.

      Pictures mean a lot to me as I believe they compensate where words fail. I use them to complete the picture, so to speak. There’s a lot of noise in my life, and this blog is my quiet corner off Bedlam Street! It’s where I try to listen out for my Lord, and where Heaven speaks to me. Feel free to comment ( I will remove your email for you, as and when it pops up), because Lord knows, I too need help to reach heaven. It will be my joy if you find comfort or healing or anything, really, that you can take for yourself and others, that will help on this our journey to God’s Arms*:) happy.

      God bless you, Marie.


  2. Caitlynn, I followed your comment on The Mad-Eyed Monk blog and am enthralled with the beauty of your blog. But best of all, was delighted to see that you are a mother to five and a Lay Associate of the Priesthood with the Handmaids of the Precious Blood! I am also a mother to five and am an Oblate of the Precious Blood. Also, I am involved with Roses for Our Lady, a lay apostolate in Milwaukee that is very similar the the Blue Army. What joy to find a kindred spirit with whom I have so much in common! Thanks for sharing your heart here-it’s inspiring!
