Welcome Message

Welcome to my blog about Catholic life and family values.
This blog will center around the beauty of Catholicism and how to raise families, evangelize our faith, and fight the ongoing spritual battles that challenge us daily.

You are invited to share your wisdom on these pages with all the readers. Together we will address important life and faith issues and how to enhance our Catholic identity.

Key areas that you will find me addressing regularly will be about important Catholic doctrine and beliefs and how they help us raise strong Catholic Christian families. My hope is that you will learn, enjoy, and be challenged by my posts. You may be informed, amused, or even annoyed, but I hope it will in some way improve your Catholic faith.

Gloria is the right name

Have you heard about Gloria Strauss? If you’re like me, you’ve been either listening to Tom Curran’s radio program, Sound Insight, or reading Jerry Brewer’s column in the Seattle Times about this amazing young lady.

Gloria Strauss died last Friday after a 4-year bout with an insidious form of cancer. Jerry Brewer, a sports reporter for the Times, began covering it probably because her dad is the basketball coach at Kennedy High School in the Seattle area. It turned into a front page journal that chronicled Gloria and her family. I can’t do justice to the incredible faith journey this was and the lives Gloria touched in this short blog post. Suffice it to say that the faith Gloria placed in the Lord and the immense power of prayer is a lesson in humility, faith, trust, and love for all of us. I urge you to learn more about Gloria Strauss.

This week will be the culmination of the celebration of her life. Please keep Gloria and her family in your prayers. I have a feeling we are all in hers!
