Hello! My name is Caitlan. Welcome to Pure in Heart. When I’m not with family, enjoying nature, cooking, working, or sleeping, I’ll use this space to share some of my reflections on Scripture and seeing God in everyday life.

I’ll tell you about me by sharing some things I love. Here we go…things I love:


My husband, Ian; our children, Thomas and Elizabeth; the rest of our family; the mountains; growing veggies in the backyard; starting my day with yoga; my first (and second) cup of coffee; dark chocolate; the Eucharist; red wine; Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta; filling my lungs with fresh air; the Psalter; toddler dance moves; Notre Dame; cookies packed with everything; the sun on my skin; Justin Timberlake; Catholic Social Teaching.

I also look forward to learning about you!


“A joyful heart is the normal result of a heart burning with love. She gives most who gives with joy.” ~Saint Mother Teresa
