Noelle Mering is an author and mother of six living near Los Angeles. Alongside her life as a homemaker, she writes frequently on culture, politics, and religion for various news outlets, and her co-authored book “Theology of Home” hit bookshelves last year.
Like many families with several kids, a daily routine helps organize much of their day. For Noelle and her husband, Adam, it involves daily Mass, getting the kids off to school, and then setting to work: Adam at his job at a large staffing firm, and Noelle at her writing desk at home.
Several weeks ago, that routine was pretty much the same as always. But in mid-March, alongside millions of other families, the coronavirus (COVID-19) rocked their world.
