#WorthRevisit: #EveryLifeisaGift

It’s time for another Wednesday #WorthRevisit. Plus I am continuing my focus on Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. Tomorrow is Gabriel’s birthday.  He would be 22 years old if he was still living on this earth.  Hard to believe it sometimes.  I will be speaking next week at the local Pregnancy and Infant Loss […]

#WorthRevisit: Grab Your Umbrella!

It’s Wednesday, which means I am revisiting a post from before, and linking it up to Reconciled to You and Theology is a Verb. I appreciate these two blogs sharing my posts, but I am also happy to discover other blogs too! This post originally appeared in August 2015. Students for Life Illinois will be […]

#WorthRevisit: My Deformed Left Hand

It’s time for a #WorthRevisit post!  Today, a friend tagged me in a Facebook “memory” from four years ago.  It was a picture (not the one below) from the local Walk for Life.  It sparked memories for me too, as it was one of the last events I served as Executive Director.  I remembered that […]

#WorthRevisit: Mothers, Earth, and Babies

I love this Wednesday “WorthRevisit link-up!  I am prepping this in advance because I will be busy at the Heartbeat International conference.  I looked at some prolife posts from the past, and decided to revisit this one.  It’s a long post, but one of my favorites because it is near and dear to my heart. […]

#WorthRevisit: Divine Mercy

Today I am sharing a post from September of 2014. I am doing this as part of the link-up “Worth Revisiting Wednesday” at the blog Reconciled to You with Allison Gingras.  I have never participated in this link-up before, but today is the perfect day to do so.  You see, this post is about praying […]

#WhyWeMarch 2016

It is late on a Saturday night.  I should be in bed, but my head is racing with plans for tomorrow.  Like every Sunday morning, I will attend Mass with my husband.  After Mass, we will head home for a hearty breakfast, then bundle up in many many layers.   Tomorrow is the March for […]

Happy Birthday, Gabriel

I have had a very quiet day of rest.  After a busy weekend of speaking and traveling, I just needed some down time. With that down time comes lots of time to reflect and remember.  Today would be Gabriel’s 21st birthday.   I talked about Gabriel a lot this weekend, as I shared my pro-life […]

Declaring His Praise

It’s been a while since I have posted.  I have been busy preparing for some events this month, plus making a boatload of birthday cards for friends and family.  Lots of fall birthdays! As I have been working on some talks, I went through a file of presentations from several years ago.  It’s funny to […]

Mothers, Earth, and Babies

Today, it’s “Earth Day” around the globe.  Frankly, I never think about it until the actual date (April 22nd) when various stories come on the news or my Facebook feed.  So yes, I was reminded of this special day first thing this  morning.   The first Earth Day was 45 years ago, and has been […]
