Day 113 – Diary of a Socially Awkward, Emotionally Stunted, Extreme Introvert

Tuesday, July 7, 2020 – I do not know what a “spirit animal” is, but someone once told me that I am a snapping turtle / sloth chimera. I suppose that if I had to pick what animal represents me, that amalgamation seems about right…I guess. Truth is I really like my shell…a lot! It Read More

Day 111 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on Church Architecture (Part XIV)

Sunday, July 5, 2020 – I swear this is going to be the last primer on Church architecture (for now…muahaha!).

In Read More

Saturday, July 4, 2020 – Yesterday we installed the massive front door for our Church on the West side (because, remember, that is where we keep our Church entrance!).

Day 107 – July and the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord, Jesus Christ!

Wednesday, July 1, 2020 – July brings us the devotion to the Most Precious Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ. And, just like June, I have made a handy-dandy handout chock-full of history, information, and prayer. Woot! You can download it HERE. In the meantime, here is a preview of what is inside… During July, Read More

Day 106 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on Church Architecture (Part X)

Tuesday, June 30, 2020 – Today we are going to get extremely technical and discuss the Gothic arch. Not to brag, but Gothic architecture has some pretty sweet physics at play in their doorways and ceilings. Sure, arches and vaulted ceilings have been around for ages, but now we have points! Sharp angels! Sweeping heights! Read More
