My hubby and I will be married 25 years in December. While we don’t claim to know everything there is to know about divorce-proofing a marriage, we do have some experience with growing a marriage to its 25th year. Hope this helps. 1. Start by eliminating DIVORCE from your vocabulary as a couple. My husband …
Feminism supposedly has accomplished much, but apparently, still not enough. When/where does it end? Most feminism, especially the radical, militant kind, seems to stem from places of anger, fear, and unrest. There is no peace to be found. These women are always waging battles, and more often than not, battle against themselves. There is a …
In Part 1, I talked about the band-aid solutions offered by popular culture being inadequate to address the prevention of same-sex attraction/homosexuality itself. Speaking to those causes listed by the Catholic Medical Association, I’d like to make the following suggestions, based on 22+ years of parenting experience, the collective wisdom of the parents and fellow …
we do not react to evil with more evil. Need to remember this, especially in those moments when I’m fatigued, and that’s the moment when a child chooses to throw a tantrum, or talk back, or just plain be obnoxious. THAT is not the time to react with anger. That’s the time to take it …
Continuing to read Fr. Thomas Dubay’s Deep Conversion, Deep Prayer. Pages The second main root of conflict is seldom even noticed in our day.

Today’s reading was a bit WOW for me, I’m kinda left speechless, so I’m limiting my “response reflection” to music and art. Here’s where I “journeyed” today…. some of my favorite Scripture verses. I thought it would be interesting to meditate on the beauty of God’s word, both the words themselves, in the Latin, in …
Years ago, I was in one of those moods, and I asked my husband why he loved me. His response? “Because you love me.” I was quite perturbed by his response. “What are you saying, you only love me because I love you? That’s the best you can do?” “What do you want me to …
Our online pro-life group started a discussion over the weekend on “soulmates”. It took several interesting turns, and many participated, but I don’t know that we completely addressed the gist of the OP’s question: He asked: The popular saying goes: may nakalaang tao ang Diyos para sa iyo (in the romantic sense). In other words, …
This is something my CFC-FFL sister Cynthia shared with us last Sunday. It’s particularly apt for me as I work on being MORE LOVING this Lent, and less exacting. It’s a reminder I need for my everyday dealing with family members, with extended family, with friends online and off, and yes, even with strangers. Even …
