Prayer March against Planned Parenthood Abortion Super Center

Since my last post about the abortion super center being built by Planned Parenthood of Houston, the weekly prayer vigils have continued right alongside the construction of what will be the second largest abortion facility in the world. With the largest in China, this late term abortion clinic will be the largest not only in the United States, but also in the Western Hemisphere.

What has changed recently is the attention this Planned Parenthood expansion is receiving nationwide. As this late term abortion clinic nears completion, people all over the country are standing up to notice what is being built in our backyard.

According to CNSNews, a coalition of pro-life advocates and religious leaders are holding a prayerful march and silent siege in Houston on January 18th. Both events will begin at the Catholic Charismatic Center, just blocks away from the 78,000 square foot Planned Parenthood super clinic, around 9 a.m. on MLK day and participants will silently march towards the almost completed monstrosity.

Visit Bound4Life, TexasFamilies, TheCall and the Road to Houston for information on many of the issues concerning this facility, such as the specific location of the clinic and the questionable intentions of Planned Parenthood. The outrage over this late term abortion clinic is not simply about being anti-abortion, but also focuses on Planned Parenthood's business practices, what they stand to gain financially from the unprecedented growth in abortion rates this new clinic will bring to Houston, as well as the poor women being targeted.

For more detailed information on the Silent Prayer March, visit organizer, TheCall for times, locations and details. Also included is information for the Prayer Rally on Sunday, January 17th at 6 p.m. at Grace Community Church - South Campus.

If you are in the area, join me and thousands of others as we stand before this monstrosity and lift our voices in prayer for the communities at risk, the women in crisis and the lives of the unborn.

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

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.

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
