More About Lauren

My name is Lauren, and I am the creator of Gathering Manna: Moment by Moment Spirituality For Moms. This blog exists as an apostolate to help Catholic and Christian moms find more peace, joy, and purpose in their lives through contemplative and liturgical spirituality.

I have found great joy and strength through adopting a moment-by-moment relationship with God as taught to us by the Carmelite and Contemplative saints, and it is my mission in life to share these beautiful truths with you! We draw our resources from the writings of the saints, and the Holy Fathers, as well as modern creatives and theologians who have helped us to dig in to the rich tradition that is ours in Christ.
