Let’s get to know each other a bit more, as sisters in Christ.
Feel free to share your answers to these questions in on our Instagram post and/or your own Instagram post, tagging #BISsisterhood.
Christy Isinger is the mom to five lovely, loud children living in the Canadian wilds. A cradle Catholic with a deep love of papal encyclicals, G.K. Chesterton, and British TV, she blogs frivolously at Fountains of Home in between homeschooling, reading books, and neglecting housework.
What part of your walk with Christ is the biggest struggle?
I think that trust is probably my biggest struggle, because so much really comes down to trusting in God. It’s a lifelong learning experience to try to let go of my own will, and accept Christ’s. It comes up in so many different ways and can be extremely difficult, or just mildly there, but it’s always something I struggle with.
What keeps you Catholic?
I think that I stay Catholic because I know that there is no where else to go for the Truth. It’s difficult, it’s demanding, it’s really unpopular, but I can’t turn away from the beauty of the Church. I love that there is 2000 years of tradition, of saints who gave their lives to the same cause, of Christ acting in human history. I love being connected to the Church that transcends our time and place. To know Christ is in the Eucharist is something that I can’t turn away from no matter how tough things get.
What do you find yourself continually praying for?
Patience, peace, and forgiveness. On repeat. Thanks Jesus!
How do you “walk the walk”?
There are so many ways. I think a lot of daily life requires our lives to look different to the mainstream culture. Definitely being open to life in my marriage. It’s obvious because I’ve got 5 kids under the age of 8 and get the questions A LOT. But also in our political and social opinions, it seems the political discussion in our country becomes further separated from morality and Catholic teaching, so sometimes even saying you disagree with something is taking a big stance that people aren’t used to, but can open up communication on why the Church teaches what she does.
