Appreciating the Aha

aha

I've always believed that everything happens for a reason.  And though we often don't ever know the reason, sometimes, we get lucky enough to find out just why things happen the way that they do.  I LOVE those little "aha" moments.  They help to restore my faith and to reassure me that something greater IS actually in…

You Cannot Find Peace Until You Find All The Pieces by Marie Maiden

Honest and Inspirational.

You Cannot Find Peace Until You Find All The Pieces

About the book: You Cannot Find Peace Until You Find All The Pieces tells the story of how God through Jesus Christ transformed my life and gave me the strength to overcome a less than desirable childhood, the regrets of becoming a teen mother, anger, immaturity, poor decision making and a really bad attitude.

 

Review by Susan Keefe:

My first impression when starting…

Single Mother's Day

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

Even though I’m a mother myself, I’ve always knows Mother’s Day to be focused around my mother and typically include the four F’s of Mother’s Day: faith, family, food and flowers. This Mother’s Day, however, will be a little different. My mom is on vacation and living up her retirement, rightfully so, but she won’t be around for actual Mother’s Day. My brother and I…

The Liberal Catholic: Part II

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

If you’ve read The Liberal Catholic: Part I, you’ll know that I’m on a search for a new religion. I began my search the same place as I do any other search: Google, of course. I did several searches pertaining to liberal religions and came…

The Liberal Catholic: Part I

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

When I first started blogging, I did a search for do’s and don’ts. It was advised not to take any religious or political stands. However, I’m not a single parent expert or anything—I just blog about my life as a single parent. And I feel that some topics certainly affect me as a parent so sorry blogging advisers. I also want to make clear that I respect all…

Halloween is NOT a Religious Holiday

Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. Each year as it approaches, I find myself getting more excited, happy and more creative as Halloween crafts and costume ideas come to mind.

I also find myself getting more annoyed by people who don't understand the holiday. The topic has come up several times on different mom forums where I am a member. Over and over again I read...

"We don't celebrate Halloween because it's against our religious beliefs." or

"We don't want to…

Time To Get Our Prayer On

There have been countless times during my parenting experience where I think we should really make religion more of a focus in our family.  Now, don't get me wrong -- I, by no means, am a Bible beater; nor is my husband.  However, little inquiring minds wanna know just who this "God" dude actually is and why so many people are always talking about him.

And…

I Broke A Promise To My Daughter's Birth Mother

This past Sunday I told my oldest child that I was thinking about going to church.  I don’t go often. She asked me in a very serious voice to be sure to pray for her sister.  I was surprised by this and jokingly asked her if she wanted me to pray for her sisters soul.  She said “Yeah mommy”.  I asked her why and she told me that when the girls attended a memorial…

What's A Shiksa To Do?

I am not Jewish.  I am of Anglo heritage with a strong Protestant past.  Although technically Catholic now, I was raised as a white bread Methodist. 

 

However, I have many Jewish friends, some more orthodox than others.  The first time I visited one of my closest friends, I was confused as to why there were pictures of meat and milk on her kitchen cabinet doorknobs.  I looked in the cabinets and saw ordinary dishes, but wow, she had a lot of them!  It was a while later when…

A Thought on Happiness

This past year or two I've been thinking a lot about religion and spirituality. Matter of fact, lately I've been dreaming of listening in on a theoretic "end of the world" forum-of-world-thought. Well, I kind of just made that name up. But you get the idea. I want to sit down and listen to everyone who has a vision of all this massive change taking place worldwide and simply hear dialogue. It's the English major in me. I want all the colorful characters, the momentous stories. I want to line… Continue

The Devil Hates You

That's what my husband said to me last night.  I had just told him I was really unhappy and felt like I was being punished for 15 years of selfish decisions.  He saw it differently.  This is what he had to say:



We have two incredible children.  The older is brilliant and funny and incredibly hard to lead.  He lives life with complete emotion and isn't easily swayed to do what he knows is wrong.  The younger brought to earth the joy of heaven and a smile that can brighten even the… Continue

Christian Protests that Produce Ungodly Behavior

Middle Tennessee is part of what is known as the Bible Belt. A church on every corner is how we are depicted. For every church, there are five associate ministers waiting to hear “the call” to start their own church or begging God that main preacher will allow them to preach one Sunday. We have several national Christian organizations that are headquartered in Nashville: the Southern Baptist Convention, the National Baptist Convention, and the General Board of…

Mommy What is heaven?

Mommy, What is Heaven?



For the last two years, I have been dreading this moment in time. My five-year old asked me with a curious look in his eye. My mind raced, my heartbeat sped up. What do I say? How do I answer that question?



On Monday, September 21st, 2009, my husband lost his last grandfather to heart failure. We told the children that he died. They know what death is and are somewhat okay with the idea. They understand it when bugs and animals die, but they have… Continue

Rant abou t Religion

The year is 2009. One hundred years ago people believed that by now there would be flying cars, robots running around doing all of our work and much more. But you look around today and you see no flying vehicles. If you look closely, you see that things haven't really changed that much since 1909. Sure we have the internet and cell phones and instead of making thousands of dollars a year, rich people now make millions. You aren't cool unless you wear 100 dollar jeans or drive a 40,000 dollar… Continue

What I Miss About Being Catholic

The only part I miss about being Catholic is the exquisite fashion show called Communion. No other church does Communion as well as the Catholics. Well, there is Project Runway, but that doesn’t count as a church as much as a cult following...[Read More Here]
