Thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Leah, and I’m a happy, Catholic, 20-something living my life and loving my Faith in East Texas. I was home schooled, then got my degree in Science education from UT Tyler! I am married to the Love of my life, Ben, and we have a sweet little daughter born last May. Baby number two coming in August!
I started blogging in 2010, mainly sharing thoughts about the good God was working in my life. This has continued, and along with a few series (Holy Week, the Hail Mary), my posts primarily reflect what God is moving in my heart and my life.
The name “Mary’s Ghillie” comes from an old Gaelic word “gillie’ (GIL-lee) which was the name given to a chieftain’s primary assistant or attendant. ‘Ghillie’ has been a nickname of mine since my Irish Dancing and Summer Camp days, so when I became devoted to Our Lady, calling myself her attendant or servant just seemed to fit. Mary is a gentle mother, and thank goodness! This little Ghillie has a long way to go!
Holiness is an adventure, so hold on tight!
