No Secret that Once Upon a Time is Frozen

Once Upon a Time…. there were two sisters.
Frozen comes to Once Upon a Time season 4

One of these sisters took her children to see Frozen.
The other did not and could not understand why everyone kept singing “Let it Go” all the time.
And then on the Once Upon a Time season 3 finale, Emma and Hook returned from the Enchanted Forest of the past with an unexpected stowaway in Rumplestiltskin’s urn; a woman in a shimmering blue dress magically emerged with ice crystals shooting from her fingertips. 
The first sister squealed. 
The second sister sighed…. and reluctantly borrowed the Frozen movie DVD.

Now she “gets it.”
We’re both looking forward to the Season 4 return of ABC’s Once Upon a Time with their new 11-episode arc incorporating characters from the movie Frozen. The Anna and Elsa story will likely be told in the standard OUAT format that see-saws between present-day Storybrooke and flashbacks to the pre-curse Enchanted Forest.


#Frozen is Coming to #OnceUponATime

We're curious how the Frozen characters will interact with our OUAT heroes, but the really exciting element is how will the show’s writers employ their classic “What If…” twist? Show creator Eddy Kitsis is already on record saying that Anna, “...is a sunny hopeful woman who always sees the good in people, but what happens when she meets Rumplestiltskin, the devil? We’ll reveal a whole new side of Anna’s personality.”
Coming to the show are Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Sven, Prince Hans (with his 12 brothers), and Pabbie the Troll King.
But no Olaf?! Maybe Kristoff finally told him what happens to snow in summmmerrrr!!!!!!
Another character appearing is supposed to be the Snow Queen, whose Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale inspired the Frozen movie. There's no spoilers about how she will be integrated into show, but I have read the original fairy tale and have a few ideas.

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
