Advent in the home: “I found Jesus!”

2017-08-28T14:52:15+00:00 Dec 4th, 2017|Categories: Bite-Sized Faith for Parents, Blogs|Tags: , |0 Comments

“I found Jesus!” proudly proclaimed my daughter. We weren’t hosting a revival in the living room, rather, a quick search in the basement for our errant plastic Savior for the nativity set. She reverently handed the figurine to me and pulled out the rest of the set before trudging upstairs to play with it. The [...]

Journey Through the Stations

2017-08-28T14:51:22+00:00 Nov 27th, 2017|Categories: Blogs, Thrift Store Saints|Tags: |0 Comments

This week Kerry reflects on an experience praying the Stations of the Cross.  She admits that she’s found the meditation boring in the past, but something is different this time.  She feels as though she’s actually on a journey letting herself get lost in the readings and reflections offered at each station.  She also recalls [...]

Was Jesus Catholic?

My mom had great news to share as I walked in the door.  “You’ll never guess what Lucas said,” she bragged. “He said that Jesus is Cath-o-lick.” And she beamed as she said this.  It was as if my four-year-old had found the cure for cancer. “That’s great, Mom.” I replied, trying to keep my [...]

More Alike Than Different

2017-08-28T14:45:11+00:00 Nov 20th, 2017|Categories: Blogs, Thrift Store Saints|Tags: |0 Comments

Kerry volunteers at a men’s homeless shelter where she stays overnight to help monitor the guy's’ activities.  She isn’t sure what to expect, but the evening goes remarkably well and the men make her feel right at home.  One of them told her that she wouldn’t know they were homeless if she’d met them outside [...]

How my Thanksgiving will be different this year

2017-08-28T14:44:02+00:00 Nov 20th, 2017|Categories: Bite-Sized Faith for Parents, Blogs|Tags: |0 Comments

When someone mentions the Thanksgiving holiday, what words come to mind? If asking a child, they may say, “turkey, pilgrims, or pumpkins.” From an adult we might hear “feast, family, or football.” For many, including myself, it seems that the word that should be first and foremost is often not. That word is, “God.” We [...]

A Place to Lay Your Head

2017-08-28T14:42:59+00:00 Nov 13th, 2017|Categories: Blogs, Thrift Store Saints|Tags: |0 Comments

Kerry’s next mission is to shelter the homeless.  She was never homeless, but she does recall a period when she kept her belongings in her car and crashed on whoever’s couch she could find due to a temporary job she’d taken.  The realization that hospitality is a simple ministry inspires her to have an open-door [...]

You gotta know when it’s time to retreat

2017-10-25T15:11:33+00:00 Nov 13th, 2017|Categories: Bite-Sized Faith for Parents, Blogs|Tags: |0 Comments

As Jesus began His ministry, He took some time to Himself and retreated from society to find a quiet place.  He entered the desert and began a nice long discussion with His Father. Before He did any of His ministerial work, before He performed any miracles, before he recruited any of His Apostles, He took [...]
