— 1 — This Week’s Post: 10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know Congratulations to Kari on the launch of her new book!
— 2 — Next Week’s Post: Fear – Part 3 ~ Healthy Fear What advice did I give to this dear girl experiencing fear? I will share the details next week (for real)!
— 3 — Not Alone Series: This week’s NAS topic was Deal Breakers! Oh, you know these smart NAS girls have some deal breakers. All of them seemed perfectly rational to me, including Lindsay’s desire to marry a non-smoker. I also understand the part about wanting to marry a man who shares their Catholic faith. I wrote about my thoughts in the post called Equally Yoked. Check out all the girl’s posts on Jen’s blog!
— 4 — Spotlight On: This week’s spotlight is on Archbishop Charles J. Chaput for this reminder:
“None of us are welcomed on our own terms in the church. We are welcomed on Jesus’ terms,” he said. “That’s what it means to be a Christian. You submit yourself to Jesus and his teaching. You don’t recreate your own body of spirituality.”
— 5 — Spotlight On: Another spotlight on Dr. Alice von Hildebrand for her new book, My Battle Against Hitler, where she reveals her husband, Dietrich von Hildebrand’s fight against Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. This was my favorite part from her recent interview:
“I think any astute reader of My Battle against Hitler will understand
the message of this book, namely that the devil never sleeps. It would
be a huge mistake to assume that the horrors which took place in both
Germany and Soviet Russia could never happen to us. By allowing
ourselves to fall into spiritual and intellectual somnolence, by
becoming consumed with the pursuit of money and pleasure, we forget
that the relativism rampant in our schools and universities can again
pave the way for such abominable horrors. We should always be aware of
the dangers surrounding us, and through prayer and the sacraments
remain spiritually alert.”
— 6 — Body and Soul: This was good and so true:
“Your naked body deserves the honor of being shared only with someone who is covenanted to never stop loving your naked soul.” Ann Voskamp
— 7 — Psalm 27: One of my favorites!
“The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom should I fear?
The LORD is my life’s refuge;
of whom should I be afraid?
One thing I ask of the LORD;
this I seek:
To dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORD
and contemplate his temple.
I believe that I shall see the bounty of the LORD
in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD with courage;
be stouthearted, and wait for the LORD.”
God love and bless you!
