There are so many times I wanted to stop and say the same thing to young families sitting in front of us at church! This blog is a great stop and think moment! It is up to us to encourage families through their spiritual journey.
To the young family who sat in front of us at Sunday Mass, this is for you. You made me smile as I was reminded of what Mass with young children is all about. How old are your three beautiful children: six, three, two? Yes, you do have your hands full. You arrived promptly and…
I have discussed with many families the issue of anger. This book has great reviews and taking any of the steps can only improve a persons outlook and turn their angry ways around. This is one for the bookshelf and it’s in ebook too.
“Father Morrow presents a practical solution to a common problem. This book can make the world a much better place.”
I love the concept of this article. It would be a great children’s book! If we carried this image with us each day, think how it would change our world. Each day we can put Jesus right there as we make our daily decisions. Yes, he is already right here and we can ponder “What would Jesus think” just like the motto several years ago “What would Jesus do”. Thinking about his reaction to today and our lives only brings him closer and deeper into our heart and soul. Enjoy this read.
My husband and I were just discussing transubstantiation and how do you explain it to non-Catholics in this time of new evangelization. This blog has an excellent explanation with church doctrine to guide you.

Some of this article was hard to hear, yet very true. As parents we think we are on track, but we are missing the boat.
Hard subject yet important to bring to light.
New book out on Amazon Putting On the Armor of God.
When we live in the Truth of God and his will, we are surrounded by abundant love.
We are given the tools such as: The Belt of Truth or The Shield of Faith, to stand strong against the evil forces and lies.
In Ephesians 6:10-18 we prepare ourselves for the battle from the words of St. Paul to the Ephesians.
Putting On the Armor of God is a great book for families to read together. Alongside with The Bible, parents can discuss each tool and what it means to them. The back of the book gives activities to incorporate each tool. You can even add your own fun ways to reinforce the Armor of God.
Great book for Bible study and PRE classes.
To purchase you can go to Amazon or click this link.
This is a well written article on a Catholic Dad. Good advise and wisdom.
How many times do we experience this attach and surrender to the weight instead of giving it to God and dwell in his love.
