Free Ultrasounds/Sonograms Outside Houston Abortion SuperCenter

The Houston Coalition for Life is now operating a Mobile Crisis Pregnancy Unit (MCPU) offering free ultrasounds and sonograms to abortion vulnerable women in front of Planned Parenthood of Houston's Abortion Supercenter.  With the addition of the MCPU, staffers and volunteers at Houston Coalition for Life will have the opportunity to lovingly provide choices and information to women and girls who feel they are left without a choice other than abortion.

When Planned Parenthood of Houston, now Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, unveiled the location for  the largest abortion facility in the United States and Western Hemisphere a few years ago, the Houston Coalition for Life investigated locations close by for a new Crisis Pregnancy Center (CPC).  Finding no available locations for a CPC, Houston Coalition for Life, a pro-life non-profit organization dedicated to ending abortions in Houston through peaceful and legal means, started fundraising for the first Mobile Crisis Pregnancy Unit (MCPU) in the Houston area. 

A recent news report filmed outside Planned Parenthood of Houston discussing the Texas Sonogram Bill, introduced viewers to this new bus where staffers provide free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds and counseling to Houston women in crisis.  Studies show that between 70-90% of women who are shown an ultrasound of their baby choose Life for their child.  By providing free sonograms to abortion vulnerable women, these volunteers have the potential to affect the lives of thousands of unborn children a year.

With over 8,000 surgical abortions performed in Houston a year, it is reported that the new mega abortion center on the Gulf Freeway in Houston performs an average of 27 surgical abortions a day, 6 days a week.  This is roughly one third of all surgical abortions a day in Houston. This 78,000 square foot building houses surgical suites capable of performing late term abortions up to 24 weeks and serves as headquarters for 12 other Planned Parenthood clinics in the region.

The Houston Coalition for Life also organizes peaceful prayer vigils outside the abortion clinic at 4600 Gulf Freeway to not only pray for women in crisis, but to also offer loving alternatives to women approaching the clinic.

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
