Dr. Miriam Grossman Launches New Website

Check out this incredibly important new website by Dr. Miriam Grossman.

After seeing brokenhearted students come into her office due to the misuse of their sexuality, Dr. Grossman became an outspoken critic of the failures of current "sex education" offered to children at schools and in society at large. She also speaks about the dignity of the human person and the need to tell the entire truth about sexuality to young people without caving into "political correcteness."

her website is found here:

My Sisters the Saints...

Image
If you are looking for a good book to read, I HIGHLY recommend a new memoir by Colleen Carroll Campbell titled, My Sisters the Saints. 
The book chronicles the spiritual journey of Colleen as she investigates her own college "liberated" lifestyle the doesn't bring happiness, only deep emptiness. She begins to challenge the popular idea of femininity and discovers what it really means to be a woman. She finds deep hope and friendship with several  women saints.

It's an honest and excellent read for you, your daughter or women who are dear to you (perhaps a great Christmas gift!)

While You Were Sleeping....

Image
I heard this song this morning and found this video that was made a couple of years ago. Obviously it is still as true today as it was then, even more so.

How often in our "slumber" we forget why we are here and that the greatest gift God has bestowed upon the world is life. He is the Lord of Life. It's easy to get distracted and forget, all the while getting sucked into secular thought that bears death, not life.

This is a very perceptive song by Casting Crowns. I love how through everything the human person faces, generation after generation, God is always faithful and true. He never gives up on us and He never leaves us. He gives His people freedom to choose. He is the author and finisher of life.

On this Thanksgiving day, may we spend time in thanksgiving and praise to God, the Father of all. We don't thank Him just because things go our way or because we get what we want. We thank Him and praise Him for who He is, in His fidelity and love. May we open our hearts…

Remind Me Who I Am....

Image
We all need a reminder of who we really are. We are not what the world says we are or a compilation of other people's opinions of us. We find out who we truly are when we turn to God and ask Him. He is delighted to tell his children who they truly are--deeply loved and cherished.

Heard this song today- thought you might like it--


Strength and Grace

I had to write about a beautiful image I saw today.

While at Mass this morning, I noticed a police officer in full uniform who had his son sitting on his lap. His son was turned and facing him and the officer eyed his son with deep delight and delicacy. While listening to the homily, his son was tracing the outline of the police decals on his father's shirt with his little hand and was lost in the strength of his father's protection and gaze. It was a tender and beautiful sight.

I was thinking of how this man, bearing authority in his full uniform, sees some of the worst of humanity. He has probably seen things he would rather forget and this man most likely puts his life on the line very often to protect the safety of the community. And yet in all his strength, he gazes upon the son in his lap and holds him so tenderly and with great love.

It reminded me of God our Father. Our Father, the Creator and Ruler of all, is not far and distant in His authority. He created each of u…

The Day After...

Perhaps many of us are still shocked over America's choice to re-elect President Obama. I still can't believe it. I can't believe America would willingly chose the agenda that he and his administration are implementing . But now we have made our bed and we will get to lie in it. All of us. It breaks my heart more than I can even describe.

Life will not be easy. Difficult times are ahead of us, my dear brothers and sisters. Nothing will be the same.

In the words of Thomas Paine written December 23rd, 1776:

THESE are the times that try men's souls. 

The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. 
Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its …

Contradeception...


The following article was written by a beautiful friend of mine who has six young children and who is passionate about bringing the dignity and beauty of woman to the forefront of our hearts and minds.

This article is more great affirmation that the Holy Spirit is speaking deeply to women and is speaking about their great role in bringing peace and life to this broken world.



Contradeception

“Why ain’t a boy in a hundred gets to whitewash an illustrious fence like this one,” The infamous Tom Sawyer spoke intently, baiting the first of many friends who passed by his lousy post, convincing them to exchange their prized possessions for an opportunity to do his dirty work.

Author Mark Twain narrates, “He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it -- namely, that in order to make a man or a boy, covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to attain.”
The rapidly approaching presidential election reflects this dark principle of human nature. By explo…
