Be Your Own Best Friend

by

Yes, that’s what I said:  You need to be your own best friend. I need to be my own best friend.   “Wait!” you might say. “Aren’t you a Christian? Shouldn’t Jesus be my best friend?”   Absolutely! But we have to let him in. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; […]

A Life Lesson I Learned from Homeschoolers

by

I homeschooled my six children from kindergarten through 12th grade.  In the beginning, we were very structured.  I enrolled my children with a homeschool program that had once been a school.

Occupy in Our Hearts and Minds

by

I wish, as I first read the article by Marybeth Hicks, “Some Belated Parental Advice to Protestors”, that I had stayed calm long enough to read the blurb after the article and to realize that it was actually written for the Washington Times, not for a Catholic publication.  I only realized this when I read James […]
