Struggling to reconcile faith with work, work with home, marriage and children with my selfish wants. I will finish my master’s in bioethics this fall (only one short class this summer and then a thesis). I work in research in oncology and struggle to balance my faith with work, trying to keep my sense of humor in the face of illness and death. I daily witness those who live with grace and dignity in the face of incredible difficulties and I struggle to keep my perspective when dealing with my own failings and frustrations.
But I want this to be a happy, thoughtful place to talk about faith, love, and ethics. Oh, and did I mention that I live in a house constantly undergoing some type of renovation, two teenage boys, a Catholic convert husband, four dogs, and a cat?
