Hello everyone, I am writing to let you all know that we are at 49 authors! This is a very exciting thing for Association of Catholic Women Bloggers!

If anyone knows of authors who no longer contribute, authors who have stopped blogging all together, please let me know, like any good gardener knows pruning is the best way to make things bloom! Blessings
