Be a Shirley not a Wrecking Ball

I 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 […]

Hard Work vs. Agenda (Sochi Olympics)

I’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.

Sometimes 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.

41 Years to Go?

I 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 […]

Flatline

Why 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. I work in a pregnancy resource center that helps […]

Twerk That

Ladies, 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 […]

Life or Death: Downton Abbey Season Four

Downton Abbey **Spoiler Alert** I have to say — I am obsessed with Downton Abbey. From Mary to Thomas this show has my full attention. I dreaded missing the last episode of season three last year while travelling in Europe. Upon finishing the third season I was devastated by the death of Matthew. Finally, Downton […]

Christmas Poinsettias Prophets Going to Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is once again raking in the money from everyday people, even during the Christmas season. The festive poinsettia plants that are used to decorate churches and homes over the Christmas season are helping to fund Planned Parenthood. Paul Ecke Ranch, the world's largest distributor of poinsettias, is a large benefactor of Planned Parenthood. […]
