Felicia Harris for Congress

When she started campaigning last August for the US House of Representatives, Felicia Harris had zero name recognition and faced eight men in the primary. Despite the odds, she won a run-off position for Ron Paul’s vacant seat in District 14. After recent redistricting, the 14th Congressional District includes much of Brazoria County, Galveston County and Jefferson County, Texas.  Today is the last day for early voting and then it’s a short pause until Tuesday’s runoff election day returns.

An attorney specializing in energy and petrochemical business, Felicia seeks to represent a district that spreads across three counties fronting the Gulf Coast, considered the “energy backbone” of Texas. The district includes the largest refinery in the state, five major ports, the entrance of the Houston Ship Channel, and DOW Chemical’s largest facility. The area is so vital to the Texas and US economy that the national Democratic party views it as the 2nd most competitive district to win in the general election.

Within the past month, Felicia Harris received endorsements from both Rep. Ted Poe and Rep. Pete Olson, who went on record stating that they believe Felicia is the best candidate to defeat the challenger in the November election. Their word means something since both of them defeated the exact same Democrat challenger, Nick Lampson, in their own elections to Congress. She also earned an endorsement from NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz, who is known to be a no-nonsense “Failure is not an option” guy.

As she travels across the three-county district introducing herself, the two biggest issues that people want to discuss with her are increased regulations and the impending impact of Obamacare on families and businesses

Personally, Felicia is very sharp, focused, and quietly firm in her message and stance. A woman of common-sense, she is running to make a difference and has the courage to do it with integrity. She defends herself from her opponents attacks, but is more interested in laying out her strengths, pointing to her record developed while serving on the Pearland City Council where she stood firm on issues and voted as she promised.

A graduate of Texas A&M, when elected she will be the first female Aggie in the US House of Representatives.

In an election where many are concerned about the health of the US economy, Felicia’s experience as a lawyer in the energy and petrochemical business makes her the most qualified candidate to represent the best interests of the people and businesses in the district.

If you live in District 14, please cast a vote Tuesday for Felicia Harris for Congress.

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
