About Us

Welcome to the Hail Marry blog where we hope to share our experiences on our journeys, including topics like marriage and family (and everything in between!) with a side of laughter. Here’s a bit about us!


“Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30

This verse always sticks out for me. I’m a newlywed wife (yay marriage!) and mom to a kindhearted daughter.

I am a Texan by birth and breeding and I love the smell of rain in the summer, firewood burning, and the combination of books and coffee (oh yeah, I’m talking to you, Barnes and Noble!). When I’m not hanging out with my family or blogging here with my bestie, Rachel, I’m probably being an office manager extraordinaire at work.

My goal for this blog is to build a community of people who can live out this vocation of wife and mother together through challenges and inspirations.



 “Your adornment should not be an external one: braiding the hair, wearing gold jewelry, or dressing in fine clothes, but rather the hidden character of the heart, expressed in the imperishable beauty of a gentle and calm disposition which is precious in the sight of God.” 1 Peter 3:3-4

I’m Rachel, and this verse is my personal motto.

When I got the opportunity to start this blog with my best friend Kristi, I didn’t hesitate to jump in. I love being married and spending my life the past two years with my Husband. I want to honor him everyday with my heart, words, and the way I represent myself.

This Blog is something that has been on my heart for awhile now. I see the need in young Catholics beginning in marriage and struggling with the first couple of years learning to be the wives and husbands that we all  strive to be. I wanted a place where all of us can come to learn, pray, and be with God on our amazing journeys with our beloveds.


This is us celebrating Kristi’s engagement to her hubby.
