Sisters of Mary on GSN American Bible Challenge

The American Bible Challenge season two
Last August, GSN introduced a new game show titled, “The American Bible Challenge” hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy where teams compete by answering questions based on the best-selling book of all time, The Holy Bible.  Instead of playing for personal riches, cash prizes are awarded to charitable organizations selected by the teams. The questions are posed in an entertaining and humorous way, ranging from the (seems to be) obvious to the obscure. 

If you’re one of the over 13 million viewers who tuned in last fall, you might be excited to know that Season 2 premieres tomorrow night, Thursday, March 21, at 8 p.m. central time.

Sneak previews available online reveal that a trio of habited sisters from The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, will compete as Team Sisters of Mary, for retired sisters of the order.  In the previews, Sister Peter Joseph (novice), Sister Maria Suso (professed sisters) and Sister Evangeline (novice) bear happy smiles even as the tattoo artists “Anointed Ink” from my hometown are faster on the buzzer.   (Start at 5:22 in the below video)

I’m looking forward to seeing the whole episode tomorrow night because each team always has a moving story on what being Christian means to them. I also can’t wait to see how the Sisters rise to the challenge and how the other teams respond to competing against them.

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
