Roe v Wade Anniversary

A Person's a Person No Matter How Small!
Today with the kiddos, we read Horton Hears A Who and made A Person's a Person No Matter How Small project at Catholic Icing, donated baby items to our local crisis pregnancy center, and prayed for an end to abortion...


A Pro-Life Prayer For Our President And Public Officials

Lord God, Author of Life and Source of Eternal Life, Move the hearts of all our public officials and especially our President, to fulfill their responsibilities worthily and well to all those entrusted to their care.
Help them in their special leadership roles, to extend the mantle of protection to the most vulnerable, especially the defenseless unborn, whose lives are threatened with extermination by an indifferent society.
Guide all public officials by your wisdom and grace to cease supporting any law that fails to protect the fundamental good that is human life itself, which is a gift from God and parents. You are the Protector and Defender of the lives of the innocent unborn. Change the hearts of those who compromise the call to protect and defend life. Bring our nation to the values that have made us a great nation, a society that upholds the values of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all. Mary, the Mother of the living, help us to bear witness to the Gospel of Life with our lives and our laws, through Christ, Our Lord.

The elephant handprints are so cute!!

I would love to know how (if) you talk to your kids about abortion... have you explained what it is to them? I find myself wanting to not tell Caroline to preserve her innocence, but also for her to know the horror of it so that she grows up knowing how awful it is...

This is such a tough one for me too! Right now I focus on two things...

One, that all human life is a gift from God and should be treated as such.

Two, that we want to help those in need. (My experience has been that the women seeking an abortion feel like they have no other choice but to get an abortion for many times due to a lack of money and resources) We are blessed to have a local Crisis Pregnancy Center. As a family we donate items several times a year. I bring the kids with me to see the center as well.

I figure the kids will ask questions in the future as they get older, but for now I have not had to explain the horrors of abortion.
