tweet inspiration: Faith in 140 Characters


tweet inspiration- Faith in 140 Characters (or less) by Mark Hart
tweet your faith

How do you share your faith in 140 characters or less?  Take a lesson from Mark Hart in his book, "Tweet Inspiration: Faith in 140 Characters (or less)".  I picked it up for my teen niece as a Christmas gift and fell in love with it myself.  The author, Mark Hart, executive VP of Life Teen and veteran youth minister, shares his faith with his trademark humor, inspiration and insights in this great book of "quotes."

Mark embraces twitter as a way to evangelize, share the Good News and offer light in the darkness.  All at 140 characters at a time.  His collection of tweets range from humorous, inspirational, thought provoking, challenging and poignant. A few of my favorites tweets from the book include:

Yes, sometimes God does work in mysterious ways - but often he is really, really obvious (Dt 30:11)

Stress will either drive you crazy or drive you to your knees.  It depends on who is in control of your life.

If your words are not better than silence... be silent. #virtue

This book is not a deep discussion on faith, but a fun yet thought-provoking book of twitter quotes taken from Mark's prolific Twitter feed. You can follow Mark on Twitter at @LT_TheBiblegeek

You don't need to be a Twitter user, follower or even familiar with Twitter to enjoy this book and let it challenge you as a Christian to live your faith more fully.

Could you tweet your faith in 140 characters or less?

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
