Tech Talk: Laudate, An App Worth Downloading
A while back, when I was looking for Rosary app recommendations for Droid users, a friend of mine called Laudate (then Catholic One) her “one stop” app for all things Catholic.
I felt sort of sorry for her, truth be told. I’m an Apple user, and my iPad apps are just, well, prettier than what I saw then on Droids.

A Survival Guide & Giveaway You Don’t Have to Be Single to Appreciate
In early March, I was blessed to be participating as a blogger at the Behold Conference in Peoria, Illinois.

Making an Old Story New
When I stand in front of my fifth grade class as a catechist, animated and enthusiastic, and mention “Easter,” I can see their eyes start to glaze over.
“Isn’t Easter just about coloring eggs and icing cookies?” their initial reactions seem to say. ”Isn’t it a chance to eat chocolate and see family? Isn’t Easter just an old story we talk about over and over every year?”
I found this reaction when I started to talk to these kids about the wonder of Christmas, too.
