On a Personal Note – From Holly

“Dear Ladies Thank you so much for visiting mothersruleoflife.ca. At this time in my personal life, I am still “at home” in PEI, caring for my elderly mother who has Alzheimers, and I am also still homeschooling my youngest daughter through her high school courses. My time with them both is precious. As a result, I am taking time away from any additional ‘Mother’s Rule of Life’ apostolic work. I will no longer be available to engage in personal email or Facebook conversations, nor will I be available at this time to do any public speaking, conferences or appearances. I will re-examine this when my family situation changes. Until then, I hope the resources that are available to you will continue to nourish you and your family in your important and irreplaceable vocation as a Christian woman, wife and mother:  from my book, A Mother’s Rule of Life, which is still being published by Sophia (see Support page for ordering information); to this website; and to the companion eBooks available following support donations (see Support page on this site). Thank you so much for our time together and for your support. May God bless you and yours  Holly Pierlot” Please Note: Any references (on this site or in the workbook) to Holly’s old website, mothersruleoflife.com, or to contacting Holly with an email address, are now out of date. Please forgive any confusion in this...

Why Getting Your Rule Pulled Together Seems Hard…

“…the souls that aspire to perfection are the object of [the devil’s] special attacks. Sinners, given up to their passions, are an easier conquest; this the devil rules peacefully over an immense throng of souls that he does not disturb in any way… The action of the devil against souls eager for perfection is not, then, a rare event; it is normal and frequent. It becomes particularly intense “when the devil sees that the soul’s character and habits are such that it is ready to make further progress: all the powers of hell will combine to drive it back again,” asserts St. Teresa (Interior Castle, Mansion II)” from “I Want to See God”, by P. Marie-Eugene, OCD, Vol I; Christian Classics, Notre Dame, Indiana, 1953,...

Can I Create a Rule With a Newborn?

Dear Holly, I am most enthusiastic to start my Mother’s Rule of Life right away, however, with a newborn, I feel absolutely paralyzed as my schedule is literally being run by our precious new addition! I desperately need to bring “order” to my life and am wondering if you have any recommendations describing how to implement a “Mother’s Rule” with a newborn, or… do you recommend I wait until she is a bit older? I am currently homeschooling my 9 yr-old and 3-yr-old (both girls) as well. Any direction/help you can provide would be greatly...

How God Guides Us…

Dear Holly I have a question about spiritual direction. Did you search for a spiritual director or did you just happen upon him because he was there? I am wondering how to go about finding someone. I do know a priest that has acted as a spiritual guide for me in the past so I may ask him but I don’t know if his duties will allow him time for me on a regular...
