About

About this site:

The purpose of this blog is to act as a source of encouragement and inspiration for Catholic working mothers who are struggling to balance the duties of their vocations as mothers with the responsibilities of being wage earners, whether outside of the home or from the home.

About me:

The woman behind the computer

My name is JoAnna Wahlund, and I’ve been a Catholic working mother for over 10 years. I’m a convert to the faith, as is my husband; we jointly converted from the ELCA in 2003 (you can read my conversion story here). We’ve been married 14 years, and we have six children here on earth plus four saints in heaven. I used to work full-time as an editor for a global information company, but I was laid off in April 2017. I’ve worked full-time during all of my pregnancies, and returned to work within 6-8 weeks of each birth, so I am intimately familiar with the joys and challenges of this hectic lifestyle.

  1. Glad to have found your website. I am a mom to 7 children, 3 still at home school age children. I have been a stay at home mom, but this year I have joined the work force because teens and young adults are expensive. I have the added twist of homeschooling my youngest(12 year old dyslexic daughter).

  2. Dear Joanna,
    So glad I found you. Happy Mother’s Day!! I’m a working mom with 3 kids still at home. My husband works a full time job and is an authorized reseller for Amazon on the side. I teach Kindergarten at a Catholic school which our kids also attend.

    Life is joyful but hectic.
