I'm a huge fan of the Psalms. I have been for decades. There is so much there to show us how to really be honest with God. As I always say, God knows our hearts anyway. We shouldn't even try to "put a good face" on things if we're miserable, or scared, or worried. God … Continue reading Psalm 27
Helping our kids
Yes, as the song below asserts, Moms matter. You betchya. And so do Dads. But this song is about our moms. And it's beautiful. Matthew West sings a lot about every day people and every day life.

Heaven is like…pizza!
There's a very cool concept that the Catholic Church likes, though too many Catholics don't know much about it. Many have probably never heard the word. It's subsidiarity.

So, the foundation of our society, in this … Continue reading Heaven is like…pizza!
