April 17th, 2014 No comments
The latest report on climate change needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Giving life for a life

Surfing the web is a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. It’s a big responsibility; otherwise, I’m quite sure, half of the pages on the internet would never get read.

Sometimes, however, you discover real gems, such as the New York Post‘s account of the life and early death of Elizabeth Joice, a New York woman who refused to have chemotherapy when she was pregnant. It’s not a story which interested the New York Times (although it did run a fine feature on the lingering death of French cuisine). Read more…

101 tips for a happier marriage book image

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing a book as part of my work with CatholicMom.com101 Tips for a Happier Marriage: Simple Ways for Couples to Grow Closer to God and to Each Other by Jennifer Roback Morse and Betsy Kerekes of The Ruth Institute. I have to say that I am very impressed and 101 Tips may be one of the best books for Marriage I’ve read thus far because of its simple and practical wisdom for married couples. I think all married and engaged-to-be married couples should read this.

This is why I’ve teamed up with co-author Betsy Kerekes to offer you a chance at a FREE copy of her book!

Tip #54 from 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage

February 14th, 2014 Comments off

Say, “Let me think about it,” when your spouse comes up with an idea different from yours. This gives you time to think before you speak. You are not required to defend all your own ideas before listening to alternatives.

This might mean leaving the room for a while. Just be sure to let your spouse know that you will get back to him or her soon. Take some time to think things through before you make any rash statements that you may regret later. If you truly listen and think about the alternative idea proposed by your spouse, you may realize that it is better than your own. Be happy about that.

Tip #93 from 101 Tips for a Happier Marriage

February 9th, 2014 Comments off

Confess, “I didn’t mean to hurt you. I didn’t realize this would bother you so much.” Don’t try to fake it. Only say this if it is true.

You may have read the beginning of this tip thinking, “Sure, no problem. I can do that.” Then you got to the “only say it if it’s true” part and thought, “Oh. Dang.” You won’t have to fake it if you strive to not do anything that would potentially hurt your spouse in the first place. What a revolutionary idea! Then if you inadvertently hurt your spouse, you can honestly say, “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt you.”
