*Catholic* Kids Say the Darndest Things

My sister is a second-grade teacher at a Catholic school. It may or may not be part of the church where I sought sanctuary. Anyway, I love Amanda’s stories about her kids. Here are some of the little gems she’s sent me over the course of this academic year. Apparently, Catholic guilt is not plaguing the student […]

Rebekah - Oh wise one, you have learned so much these past four months.

Here’s a little something to make the trip sweeter.”

SUCH a cute idea, I reckon!!

Community

I’ve been thinking about community lately and what it means. Last Friday, our women’s fellowship leader made the point, “You can’t have community without knowing someone’s name.” It suddenly dawned on my why I make Bird Rock Coffee Roasters my goal distance marker when it’s my day to take Patch on a walk. It’s a […]
