Lent was filled with the usual Lenten illnesses and appliance breakdowns. God really knows how to keep us clinging to Him by our fingernails. :) We are learning to praise Him in all things.
There were also some exciting opportunities to be a teensy part of defending life and liberty.
Monica was invited to attend a dinner featuring our Lt. Governor as the main speaker. She was joined by a lively table of young republicans and he graciously spent time talking with them.
The HHS mandate that will force Catholics and others to violate their conscience on life issues, resulted in rallies across the country. One of the very best speeches from our rally was given by a Deacon from a local parish. Well worth the read.
the local paper featured this picture of me at the rally, the kids were there too but scattered among their friends
Even Kevin J., away at college, participated in the Shield of Roses prayer vigil at an abortuary.
