I wish more people knew their story. It's a great story of salvation. It needs to be told so that everyone can know that each one of us matters. Very much. There is a Creator who is not just the "supreme being." He's actually not a being at all. This Creator is the sheer act … Continue reading Do you know the story?
I shared this in a comment section of David French’s Sunday Dispatch column, The French Press. My response got several “Likes” so I decided to post it here, too! Jesus tells us to love one another. And New Testament Scripture basically says “they’ll know we are Christians by our love.” If we Christians really lived … Continue reading Thoughts on Christians

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.

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. To simplify, it means that everything meaningful should happen at the most basic level whenever possible. We Are Family...

The lyrics to the video I've embedded below are powerful and have me thinking about a lot of things, actually a lot of people. And, yes, if I'm being honest I can include myself. See, I am like those potential stone throwers in the Gospel who are convicted by Jesus to admit, rather publicly, that … Continue reading Signs
I heard this song on my car radio a few days ago, it's called "When We Fall Apart." As someone who recently lost my dad and whose brother passed away a year before that, and then our mom left us in 2017. Well, it's been a tough several years. My sister now mourns the loss … Continue reading Mercy
This song below, by one of my favorite Christian musical artists, Audrey Assad, is just a perfect summation of St. Terese of Lisieux's Little Way of living. We should realize how little we are in comparison to the Eternal, Omnipotent God. But we are also small in our mercy and love compared to the Creator … Continue reading Little Things…
Jesus is in agony in the Garden of Gethsemane -It’s not just about fearing the torture He knows He will undergo very soon. It is not just this dread of the pain and the degradation. It’s not even just about the false accusations that will lead to His arrest and all the terrible things that … Continue reading Meditations on the Sorrowful Mysteries
Those of you who follow me fairly regularly know that I occasionally re-post blog entries that I write for Women in the New Evangelization (WINE). I was honored to contribute to a book they’ve compiled that will be released on April 23, 2021. It’s going to be a wonderful, spiritually encouraging book for any woman … Continue reading Called By Name
