9/12 Tea Party Rally


For many months, Glenn Beck has promoted The 912 Project, which along with other groups, including FreedomWorks, have coordinated a grassroots movement culminating in a March on Washington, D.C., this past Saturday. Smaller 9/12 tea parties took place around the country at the same time. I couldn’t attend because my young daughter had surgery on Friday. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. She came through it fabulously and is on the road to recovery.

Saturday, I sat glued to the TV watching the coverage of the DC rally. Wow is the word that comes to mind. I wish I could have been there. Crowd estimates range widely from “tens of thousands” by the television networks, 1.2 million by the Metro police and 1.5 million by Parks and Recreation. View the time lapse DC traffic camera and collections of 9/12 Rally pictures and judge for yourself which is the most accurate.

Over the weekend I spoke to many friends about what we saw on TV and the internet about these rallies. In our lifetime, average people have never come together in this way in support of our country and our founding principles. These people were not moved to take to the streets because a political party, a political figure, or someone “told” them to do so. They came out en masse because they honestly feel our country is moving away from the ideals, principles, and freedom that makes our country so unique.

I fully believe that our Founding Fathers would be proud to see us exercising the rights given to us by our Creator and guaranteed in our Constitution. It is an inspiration to watch people wake up and come together to stand up for their beliefs in our ideals, principles and Constitution.

My Favorite Catholic Children's Bibles

How do you select a Catholic Children's Bible?  Which children's bible is best for my kids?  Those are questions I get asked all the time.  Searching in my house I discovered almost a dozen different Catholic Bibles for kids or youth on our shelves. When looking for a children's bible or book of bible stories for children, there are several things to take into consideration.  How old is the child?  Do you want something easy to read in story form or a bible with scripture text?  How big or heavy is the book? Is the children's bible a keepsake to commemorate a special event like a baptism, first communion or confirmation? And the answers to these questions might change as the child grows and develops or you have multiple children. With those questions in mind, I'll delve into the Catholic Children's Bibles and Bible Stories we like best of those in our home.

Prayer to End the School Year

Another school year is coming to an end.  And what a year the 2017-2018 school year was..... The events of the last 9 months have made me not only thankful to see it end but needing to get on my knees to Thank God for many things.  This school year began with Hurricane Harvey hitting our area and ended with the devastating school shooting at nearby Santa Fe High School. In the middle of the crisis around us there were so many beautiful things, events and people that touched and changed our community and family for the better.  Let's just start with the teachers and administrators who have interacted with my kids this year...  A special social studies teacher that made a fast friend out of my geography obsessed daughter, an ELA teacher who slowly won my oldest daughter over with her love of the written word, a soccer trainer who pushed my son harder than he thought he could handle, and then helped him recognize how that hard work paid off.  What about a school nurse who repeated

12 Quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta

St. Teresa of Calcutta made a deep impression on me as a young girl as I watched her on tv and in news. Who doesn't remember the iconic picture of Mother Teresa with Princess Diana splashed across all magazines, newspapers and news shows?  To me, Saints were people who lived a long time ago, but here she was, a saint in the making.  Mother Teresa was a role model of how to become a Saint in our modern world, by giving her life to God through her dedication to the poor. On her feast day, I want to share with you a few of my favorite quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta.   Her words are seemingly simple and straightforward but packed with meaning.  My selection comes out of a new favorite book I picked up called, Mother Teresa: Her Essential Wisdom by Carol Kelly-Gangi.  This little book contains hundreds of quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta centered around specific themes as well as a summary of her biography and quotes about her from others.  "God does not demand that
