We’re so happy to share a new friend, Julie Filby. Seemingly blessed in her childhood memories of growing up in Coffeyville, Kansas, Julie never veered too far from her early moorings, and she shares about the many blessings in her life. Most noteworthy, she’s a happily married wife and mom — but she also has a job that a lot of us can only dream about. Julie is a key reporter for the Denver Catholic Register. In our time together, she talks about some of her fun and interesting interview assignments.
You can find Julie at her blog: A Mother’s Musings…I’m just tryin’ to get my kids to heaven
She’s also a CatholicMom.com (columnist)
And, find Julie at Catholic News Agency’s Catholic Womanhood (columnist)
Denver Catholic Register (reporter)
We were also blessed to have a contributing ‘vitamin’ thought on Blessings from Denise Bossert. Denise’s conversion story would be of interest to those who are coming to the Church from a variety of Christian denominations and to life-long Catholics as well.
She writes a column which appears each month in The St. Louis Review and has appeared in 43 diocesan newspapers.
In January of 2011, she was a guest on The Journey Home with Marcus Grodi. The show covered her journey from Protestant preacher’s daughter (Wesleyan until middle school, then Presbyterian) and her two-year experience as a pastor’s wife (marriage annulled).

She is a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary in New Melle, MO and speaks to parishes and RCIA classes across the U.S. She specializes in sharing with parishes in the Midwest because of her roots in Iowa and Missouri. She has a M.A. in Literature and is a student at Paul VI Institute in STL.
Denise can come to your parish or chancery and her talks can be tailored to fit upper high school classes, women’s groups, RCIA classes and parish-wide gatherings.
Denise Bossert has been on EWTN’s Journey Home and Women of Grace. When I asked Denise if she had any books, records or anything to promote on Catholic Vitamins, Denise said she doesn’t have anything to promote – except love for Jesus Christ and His Church. But that keeps me busy
