My friend, Elizabeth Tomlin, has a new book out and I am so honored that I was asked to read an advance copy! Well, I did manage to download it but then my life got super busy. It was made available for purchase several days ago...So I finally finished with my reading and then wrote … Continue reading Joyful Momentum
Sorry to post twice in one day, but I just read #Fr. Burke Masters blog entry for today, the Friday before Epiphany. He based it on the reading from 1 JOHN 2:29–3:61. In it John tells us that we are now God's children, thanks to Jesus...Here's what I wrote in early December of 2018. I … Continue reading Joyful, joyful – again!
At our Mass for the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God, our presider, a priest I had never seen before and whose name I did not know, told us the following personal stories about the Blessed Mother of Jesus.

I heard this song in my car last week. I was touched deeply by the words. I’m kind of a ‘words’ person when it comes to songs. I need them to make sense, to flow logically, to be beautifully placed next to each other. I need them to be meaningful and thoughtful. And then a nice melody to accompany these words makes the song complete.
Reckless Love is one of those songs that I was moved by as I heard the words sung within the confines of my car and they reached into my heart. So here’s the link below.

My latest entry is up on the Women in the New Evangelization website! WINE is a fabulous initiative to get Catholic Women together to learn and grow in their faith, and to evangelize to others who do not know God or the faith, even if they were raised in it! It happens, believe me! I … Continue reading “Jesus I trust in You”
When I moved to California in January of this year, I felt strongly that God was leading me to help out in the pro-life movement somehow. I didn't know how or why, other than I've been a believer in the right to life for every person since I can remember. No one should be swept … Continue reading The Way Ahead
I posted this last year, and depressingly, the year before that. And I'm posting again because it's still relevant. I wasn't planning on this today, but then the mass shooting in my beloved El Paso happened. And I felt compelled to share what I've shared after 2 other terrible and too eerily similar events. Who … Continue reading The Discussion We Need to Have
Today we celebrate the birth of John the Baptist in the Catholic Church. The Gospel from Scripture, from Luke, Chapter 1, verses 57-66 and 80, is all about how Elizabeth and Zechariah's family expect them to name the baby after his father, but mom insists that his name shall be John, which means, "God is … Continue reading John the Baptist and expectation management
