Hold On to Your "Catholic" Kids

I'm so excited and grateful that one of my blog readers from Michigan, pointed out to me that there is a Hold Onto Your Kids (see book below, next post down), with the Catholic element being implemented. Still based on the principles of Dr. Neufeld's book, you can find this insightful blog at:

Hold On to Your Catholic Kids

They also have a discussion loop by the same name located at:

Thanks to Mary for the tip!

1930s Marital Test


As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Superior

Take the test!

Oh my, my friend Esther scored 10 points higher than I! I guess God created me to be present during the 60s and now and not the '30s, for obvious reasons :) Alas, I love the 30s!

Thanks Esther for posting this.

Summer has come to the Village of Minerva...

So much has been happening and I haven't much time to blog these days, but all is well here with the family. We have wrapped up our homeschooling year and this new year brings with it preparations for college for our oldest son. I hope to keep you informed and report back later! :)

In the meantime, we have enjoyed God's blessing us with a seminarian at our parish for the summer. I share with you one of his excellent photos, up above, and two links to read his futher thoughts and see his wonderful photography. His life/vocation story are contained at his blogspot:

The Night is Passing!

and his photoblog:

Mike G's Photos

Michael (Mike) gives permission to use his photos as long as we link back to his photoblog, and I will tell you, his pictures are so wonderful, I had quite a time choosing one to sample at my blog! What is very nice is that you can see my church here in northeastern Ohio and some of it's great stained glass windows and outside features, through Mike's talented lens right at the homepage of his photoblog. Minerva never looked so good....

Thank you Mike!

God bless all my friends ~ keep me in your prayers, you are in mine.


A gentle whisper....?

If you ever google ..."is God trying to tell me something?..", you will not be left unaided. Recently, I have felt more like I need to be listening, quietly, as if God is indeed trying to tell me something. I can't quite place my ears on it...but I'm trying. Somehow, documenting this notion seems to validate it as true. So, I googled....and I read umpteen entries on just this subject. I leave you with just this one to enlighten you ever so gently and quietly:

God's Trying to Tell You Something

"And after the fire came a gentle whisper” (1 Kings 19.11-12)
