Conversion

You Want to Convert Me?

I’m a grateful convert, but no one converted me. You may have read about Pope Francis and his recent dialogue with atheist Eugenio Scalfari, founder of La Repubblica. In the published article, the Pope and Mr. Scalfari exchanged comments about whether they would attempt to convert one another.... [Read more...]

Stop Evangelizing Me!

As a kid, it always bugged me when someone was a little too sure about the state of their eternal salvation – and mine. I heard things like, “You haven’t prayed in tongues yet? Be careful when you cross the street…” or “All you need to do is say a little prayer in your heart, and you’re... [Read more...]

Conversion – Event or Process?

As a child, I bounced around several Christian denominations, but made a conscious decision to live for Christ during my pre-teen years. In fact, I did this a few times, as there were countless opportunities to do so. In my travels, there were frequent altar calls and other invitations to accept Jesus... [Read more...]

Catholic Mom’s Café

I admit it: I was a little reluctant about this book review. The problem is, I’m not a mom. What can I possibly say about a book that targets mothers?

So with apologies to... [Read more...]

5 Reasons to Speak Positively about your Spouse at Work

“Sorry, I can’t do it tonight. The old ball and chain gets ticked off if I’m out late.” How many times have we heard derogatory comments like this about spouses in the workplace? Even worse, snide remarks can give way to all-out whining: “My husband is such a jerk sometimes” or “My wife... [Read more...]

The Power of Encouragement

The other day, I was jogging on the treadmill, thinking. It’s one of my favorite places to think. On this particular day, much of the thinking was skewing in a negative direction. As a counter-measure, it struck me that I should instead try to think of happy memories. That’s when it happened. Like... [Read more...]
