Have you ever rehearsed in your mind exactly what you would say to a woman walking into Planned Parenthood? Did you have the words ready…on the tip of your tongue? They would be powerful, loving and would penetrate right to her heart…and she would see the light…change her mind and choose life for her baby! […]

Working Together

Once again, I begin my weekly blog reflection by pointing to an episode of the series about Jesus called “The Chosen”. Obviously, I have been very moved by this series!

My Training Ground

I arrived 15 minutes early for my weekly shift at PP last Wednesday, so I had some quiet time to reflect and pray while waiting for my partner, Amy, to arrive. No employees had arrived yet and the sidewalks were quiet and peaceful. I took this picture to remind me of the insight that God

Are you the same person you were back on Ash Wednesday? I hope I’m not…I hope that in these 40 days of Lent and our campaign that I’ve learned a little, grown a little, changed a little. But it won’t mean much if I go back to “business as usual” on Day 41. I’ve seen

Taken from lyrics of the pro-life song, “Anointing Oil”, by Croatian 40 Days for Life (linked below) I am going to apologize right up front for my discombobulated (is that
