To Pray or Not to Pray

"For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy." ~ St. ThéRèse of Lisieux ~       A few girls Read more

Girls: From a Flower to a Bomb

TulipsMost any girls over the age of 14 say other girls are among those who wound them the worse.

You girlfriends are those who can encourage you to conquer the world then undercut you with a simple few words or actions.

Why is this?

We all do this in some way. Think of your own life… OH how easy it is to divide by complaining and negativity.

Model Charlotte Dawson — To Choose

Charologget Dawson Tell AllMy heart broke when I heard the tragic story of super model Charlotte Dawson who ended her life after fourteen years of depression. That is, depression that began after her abortion in 2000.

In her autobiography Air Kiss and Tell Charlotte shared of her depression struggles over the years.

Ex-husband and Olympic swimmer Scott Miller did not want to have the child as it would interfere with his preparation for the Olympics. Not only did Charlotte loose her first and only child to abortion but her marriage also fell apart not long after.

A few girls recently asked me to write a blog about prayer. Now this made me giggle at first because I thought: girl+prayer=mind running in 50 trillion directions.

distracted-girl-15049452I get it, this happens to me every day and I just want to tell myself “Calm down and think of one thing at a time.” If only it were that easy!

I struggle to stay focussed whether I’m in Mass, reading the Bible, praying the Rosary, or spontaneously praying. It’s difficult!

Be a Shirley not a Wrecking Ball

John-Boles-and-Shirley-TempleI don’t know about you, but I grew up watching the Shirley Temple movies. My all time favorite was The Littlest Rebel. I cry every time when Shirley’s mom dies and I have a huge crush on John Boles who plays Shirley’s dad.

Monday, this childhood actrice died at the age of 85. I find it sad that many people’s response is, “I didn’t know she was still alive.”

Hard Work vs. Agenda (Sochi Olympics)

Travis OlympicsI’m having a difficult time with the recognition of homosexuals at the forefront of President Obama’s message for the 2014 Olympics. This could open the floor to conversations on multiple levels. (Feel free to comment.) However, I bring this up for one reason.

I love the olympics and always make a tremendous effort to watch them — discrimination should have nothing to do with it. From bobsledding to ice skating, I love watching any of the sports due to the respect I have for all the athletes competing.

Catholic Around the World

pope-francis-brazilSometimes we have this idea that America is the only place in the world.

As young Catholics we forget there are other people in different countries who speak different languages, but are Catholic. They stand for the same exact things Catholics in the US stand for!

Do you ever feel alone, like the only person who is pro-life or believes homosexuality doesn’t jive?

Here’s a taste of the universality of our faith… Catholics across the world:

Cherished

jeremiah-29-11-plans-coverI realized today how cherished I am by the men in my life, even those who lack respect for other women. Why is it that a friend who otherwise sleeps with every other girl he speaks with can respect and cherish me in a pure and sisterly way?

This is something I want for you girls. Any man, no matter his background can cherish you for one reason: because it has everything to do with who you are.

483370_10151568892332359_883300764_nI certainly do not have it all figured out but I have realized some things about my friendships, particularly with the male gender. Story time . . .

41 Years to Go?

Screen shot 2014-01-22 at 8.46.54 AMI wonder if 41 years from now, as I venture into old age, if today will mark the 82nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade — the supreme court decision legalizing abortion through all nine months of a woman’s pregnancy in the United States.

I wonder if the many marches will continue in 2055. Will hope be lost after 50 or 70 years of legalized abortion?

Flatline

remain calm all is wellWhy is it that highs are so high and lows so low? It’s as if we constantly wait to grasp on to something exciting or devastating in life. Always searching for the next new thing.

In other words, when life is flatline it’s often not enough.

flatlineI work in a pregnancy resource center that helps women in crisis pregnancy. One thing the center director often notes is that the beautiful women coming in the door have a difficult time living with everything being calm and okay.

It’s as if people crave or even create a storm around themselves, especially us girls.

Twerk That

imageLadies, please take a minute to watch the video if nothing else.

Many of us have gotten a laugh or two our of the ridiculous twerking videos gone wrong.

While some of the videos are admittedly funny, twerking is quite the thing for girls to do whether on the dance floor or on YouTube for all eyes to see. I know some people may find this video provocative, but I think the provocative topics itself can be addressed with the the appropriate bluntness.

This video poses due consideration for all who find themselves tempted or otherwise accustomed to eye twerking surroundings . . .
