The Bright Maidens post series was created before Lent 2011 by three bloggers turned friends. It continues on every first Tuesday of the month, bringing new apologetics to the young and older alike. We're here to answer 1 Timothy 4:12's call: "Let no one have contempt for your youth, but set an example for those who believe, in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity."
a bright Maiden overcame it,
and so the highest blessing
in all of creation
lies in the form of a woman,
since God has become man
in a sweet and blessed Virgin.

I am a recent college graduate; passionately and faithfully Roman Catholic; employed; discerning my vocation; seeking God in the everyday and on runs with my dog. I have always worked in a corner office, but the view keeps changing.
Young cradle Catholic learning my way into the life I was meant to lead. I'm grateful to my family for helping God shape me. "Become what you are." -JPII.
