CatholicTV To Produce Reality Episode Starring Single Mom With Eleven Children

On October 6th and 7th, CatholicTV will record an episode of its reality-style show “House+Home” with Kristin Bothur and 9 of her 11 children whom she raises as a single mother.

Kristin is the author of the book “Eleven On My Own” and also writes a blog of the same name.

Kristin and her eleven children recently moved into their new home in Connecticut, which was made possible through the help of a local priest named Fr. Joseph Tito along with many volunteers from the parish, St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception Church, in Sprague, Connecticut.  The moving van was donated, and driven, by the Knights of Columbus Council in the area, many member Knights were volunteers on the renovation for the family.

CatholicTV suggested that Kristin and her family participate in an episode of House+Home shortly after Kristin told her story on “This is the Day”, a talk show on CatholicTV.

The episode of House+Home with Kristin Bothur and her children will air later this year on the CatholicTV Network. Kristin and her children will discuss the new home which they recently moved into as well as their life in a house where 5 boys and 4 girls live with their mother. Kristin’s two young adults are away from home.

During her interview on This is the Day, Kristin said, “We became closer to God through all of these trials. We gather for evening prayer every night and the rosary. We are at Mass all of the time, and one of my sons is in Rome studying to be a priest.”

“House+Home” is a Catholic reality T.V. show taking viewers into Catholic homes and shows how Catholic families live out their faith. Each episode of “House+Home” is hosted by President of the CatholicTV Network, Fr. Robert Reed.

CatholicTV is currently producing a special episode of House+Home in Rome, Italy as well.
