Hi! I'm Maggie I'm a 31 year old beloved wife and mother-to-be. I have a background in theater and theology. I received my B.A. in 2010 from Franciscan University of Stuebenville. I have served as a missionary with NET, "Challenging young people to love Christ and embrace the life of the Church." My favorite way of serving is speaking and writing about John Paul II's Theology of the Body. Its my passion to help men and women love their God given identity and to teach and encourage them how to live authentic lives. Currently I help manage a Catholic book and gift store. I speak and write when God gives me the opportunity. It is an honor to grow and pray with you. Please know that each of you are held very close to our hearts.

Hello, I am a wife, mother and a grandma to the cutest little boy named Elijah. I am a leader for the Holy Spirit prayer group at my parish and I participate in the SCRC at the Anaheim convention center every year. Prayer is my passion and I pray for you all!
I'm a cradle Catholic married to the only person I've ever met who can keep me grounded. Together we have three beautiful daughters, Vivian (3), Eliza Mae (1) and Louise (5 months). I work full-time as an advancement officer for a Catholic High School. I live in a stewardship diocese, meaning there is no tuition at our school, costs are paid by parishes and donations through stewardship. I've worked at the school for a little over two years and my main responsibility is to raise money for the school through alumni and community relations. I love my job because it combines my love of Christ, with my love of design, photography and writing. I can be as creative as I want and that's the best thing I can ask for in a job.
I converted to Catholicism in 2010 after being drawn to the faith in various ways throughout my life. The Friday before the Easter Vigil that year, God answered one of my desperate, fervent prayers through a priest with whom I had no previous interaction. It was very clear to me from that night that THIS was where I was supposed to be. That same year,I married a remarkable man (coincidentally also a Catholic, but not the reason or even the inspiration for my own conversion). Together, we have grown in our faith and become (dare I say?) an integral part of our parish community. We are blessed with a blended family of seven children and hope our faith leaves indelible impressions on them as they grow into adulthood.
Hi, my name is Emily. I use my theology degree to help heal souls through young adult and parish ministry, and use my hands to help heal bodies through massage therapy. I preferably love combining soul healing and body healing, and watching Christ do the real work. While I have held the poorest of the poor and they have forever left a mark on my heart, the opportunity to write for HOM has helped me find my mission back home. I live with my husband in the tiny corner of the country known as New England, where I love the fall and somehow survive the winter. I am constantly re-learning how to trust God in all things, and run on coffee, wine, and loads of grace!
I was a college student turned missionary with NET ministries and fell in love with simplicity, adventures, and women’s ministry. I’m a small town girl taking on the city of St. Paul, MN one coffee shop at a time. I love anything active, watercoloring, playing ukulele, and eating peanut butter!
Hannah is a missionary working and speaking in St. Paul Minnesota. She loves board games, dance parties, snail mail, and anything outdoors. She is an avid traveler, painter and is in fierce pursuit of what sets her soul on fire. She is thoroughly in love with her messy, imperfect life and lives for simple everyday joys finding her home in the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts.
I am radically loved by my Maker and this life is His gift to me.
Cheryl Ann Wills is an author and entrepreneur. Her passion is to give back to society by making a difference. This she does by writing what she hopes will open hearts to life-changing ideas, by teaching children to read to increase their future value to themselves and society, and by teaching people how wise health and lifestyle choices can be foundational to a better life for future generations.Her quest for Truth led Cheryl to The Catholic Church in 2000, after a lifetime devoted to the Christian faith as a Protestant. As her conversion story reveals she is grateful to have discovered certain peace, at last. (Her story, Journeys to Peace…The Journey Home and The Journey Continues: Fulfillment of a Call, regarding her husband’s ordination to the priesthood can be found on her website). Evidence of her unquenchable thirst for the Lord is in her blog at her website.Cheryl and her husband, Ed, live in Kansas City, Missouri. They have three fabulous daughters, one equally fabulous son-in-law, and a happy Coton de Tulear named Justina. They are thrilled that grandbaby number one has recently entered the family. Family time, photography and painting, cycling and hiking help her maintain balance in life. Daily Mass, prayer, journaling and meditation keep Cheryl centered.CherylAnnWills.com (http://cherylannwills.com/)

Hello! My name is Ally Hynes and I am the face behind Instagram! I also do some writing and some photography for Heart of Mary; I just can’t get enough :) I stumbled upon HOM through a random internet search and I believe God wanted to save my soul! I was a social worker for seven years and have now gone back to school again for ministry, thanks to HOM ;) I live with my husband and our cat Jewell who is truly like my daughter ;) My most favorite place to be is Our Lady of Good Help Shrine in Champion, Wisconsin! I love Mama Mary, all fur-children, storms of any kind, and coffee! My favorite saint is St. Max Kolbe, but I have a trusty 12ish or so that I rely on ;)

Kristyn Brown Art Director
Hi! I’m Kristyn, a wife, mother and photographer. In 2015 I started a photo series titled “The Saints Project” which uses real people to portray saints. In April of 2015, The World Meeting of Families asked me to create 8, 8ft banners of images of Our Lady using the technique I developed for The Saints Project. Since then I have created over 50 images of Saints and the Holy Family. Heart of Mary used some of my images last year and then gave me the opportunity to contribute as Art Director. I feel so blessed to be a part of the HOM family.
