Linda Turner is a writer and photographer for her blog Dancing with Scapulars, where she chronicles the journey with her children toward Heaven. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Troy State University, with studies in Human Services, Corrections, and Criminal Justice, and is trained as a labor doula; she is presently trying to figure out on which of those paths she should trod the more. Linda's writing focuses on themes of healing, compassion, and moving forward through trials, drawing from her life experiences as a Catholic home-schooling single mom, as a mother of a childhood cancer survivor, and with her ministry as a photographer with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. She lives in the Texas countryside in a fixer-upper farmhouse with her flocks of children, sheep, and ducks, one German Shepherd- and far too many cats.

The last time I made chocolate chip cookies I chopped up a solid chocolate heart for the chips. When I cut into it, I got a little buzz and was reminded of my last heartbreak.  The words of a...
As I was driving my twenty-something-old daughter to school, I announced that I am "throwing away the panic button." She shouted "YES!" so quickly and loudly that I was nearly startled into the next lane. I didn't need to...
I've been feeling a lot of anxiety lately. I stopped at the Catholic supply store in Houston and picked up a new incense. The wafting smoke calms me and takes me to a quiet place in my head. This...
