House of Love and Laughter – Finding a soft place to land while surrendering to God

Heather is a Catholic Convert who lives near the City of Brotherly Love with her husband, Jon, of 24 years and their four children (2 are college kids and 2 are at home) and two feisty dogs rooted in faith and love.

She spends her days running her home, homeschooling her two youngest girls, supporting her husband in his brain cancer journey, and searching for truth, beauty, and goodness. She writes about her deep faith, the gift of raising her family, the vocation of marriage, and taking long walks while listening to the voice of God.

Heather writes at HouseofLoveandLaughter.com and hangs out on Instagram @houseofloveandlaughterblog where she weaves words, offers a soft place to land, reflects on finding hope and joy, and loving others first, laughing often, seeing the beauty and while encouraging others to grow closer to God in this sometimes difficult journey called life. Lately, she shares glimpses into finding joy and beauty in the suffering—as her husband lives with and fights brain cancer while sharing thoughts of the heart on the recent loss of loved ones.

Blessed Be God Boutique

Blessed Be God Boutique

Blessed Be God Boutique – Display Your Faith

Hello! My name is Janice and I am a Catholic wife and mother of three. I enjoy sewing and crafting. This shop began as a desire to create while home during the pandemic. When brainstorming ideas, I knew I had to create a shop where I could do what I love and, most importantly, praise God with the products!

I believe that life should be full of warmth and love. With this in mind, I offer you high-quality items for your home and living. The products here range from rosary pouches to stickers to scrunchies, all with colorful designs and the practicality you expect.

All fabrics and designs celebrate Christian ideals or contain elements of Catholic imagery and prayer. The products help us to keep Jesus always on our minds and in our hearts. Gifting one of our rosary purses or carrying a phone case with Catholic imagery means we can evangelize to the world while also keeping our Lord with us literally and figuratively!

I hope you enjoy the items in the shop as much as I have enjoyed creating them!

Sophia Lebano Creative, LLC

Sophia Lebano Creative, LLC Website and Brand Design Agency for Catholic entrepreneurs

Hi! I’m Sophia Lebano, a junior business management major at Franciscan University of Steubenville. I’m a podcast host at Hear and Now Podcast and the founder of Sophia Lebano Creative, LLC.

My company, Sophia Lebano Creative, is a website design and online business management company for Catholic and Christian entrepreneurs. I feel such a fire in my soul when I serve my clients, who are in return serving the Lord.

I’ve lived with hearing loss since the age of 8, and received bilateral cochlear implants in 2016 & 2018. Since then, I’ve started advocating for hearing loss awareness, as it’s a passion of mine to fight for what matters. My faith has been super important to me, especially living with a diagnosis like hearing loss.
After being raised as a cradle Catholic, I fell deeply in love with the faith when I got to high school, and rediscovered that fire again in college.

In my spare time, you can find me working on my business, studying the latest social media trends, dancing, or organizing my outfits for the week. I’d love to connect on Instagram (@sophialebano) and hear about what brings you joy!
