We Bought a Zoo

We Bought a Zoo by Benjamin Mee

I’m not sure what prompted me to check out this book, but I’m really glad I did. I did not go see the movie and still have not seen it. After reading the book, I think it was wise to read the book before seeing the movie. There are some major differences I’ve heard about. […]

The Racketeer

The Racketeer – John Grisham

I finished The Racketeer a few days ago. John Grisham never lets me down. I know when I pick up one of his books, I am going to be thoroughly entertained. I wish they would make all of his books into movies. This one would make a very good movie. Malcolm Bannister is in a […]



God has been talking to me about choices today. I tend to NOT make the choices I should make. Do I watch the Donna Reed Show in the morning or do I leave the TV off and have my devotional time instead? Do I read my novels all the way up to bedtime in the […]

Tomb of Zeus

The Tomb of Zeus by Barbara Cleverly

This is the first book I’ve read by Barbara Cleverly. The title, book cover and write up about the book were the factor’s that caused me to pick it out. This is the first book in Ms. Cleverly’s Laetitia Talbot series. Laetitia (nickname Lettie) Talbot is from a privileged British background and has been raised […]


Sandstorm by James Rollins

After Bad Move by Linwood Barclay, I went on to a couple of tried and true authors I love. I read Hard Eight by Janet Evanovich which is the 8th book in her Stephanie Plum series. I just love the Stephanie Plum character. She seems to always get herself in dangerous and often hilarious situations […]

Bad Move 2

Bad Move by Linwood Barclay

I haven’t posted for awhile, so I figured I needed to get back to business. But the only thing there really is for me to write about is the books I’ve been reading. My last post was in April and I’ve read numerous non-fiction between April and July, then 39 novels between July 2013 and […]


The Sin of SELF

If you really look at all the different sins that a person can commit from the smallest to the biggest, you will begin to see that ALL sin in our life stem from one thing – – SELF. Think of the 7 deadly sins – pride, laziness, envy, greed, anger, lust and gluttony. Every single […]


Father, Forgive Them

Many Americans now know that the older brother who is suspected of the horrible bombing in Boston was killed early this morning and now the 19 year old brother is in custody. There is no doubt that what they allegedly did was horrific and the lives of the victims and victim families are forever changed. […]


Imitate Their Faith

I was asked recently by a non-Catholic Christian why the Catholic Church does not teach that all Christians are saints as 1 Corinthians 1:2 tells us. Well, the answer is that the Catholic Church most definitely DOES teach that all Christians are saints. The Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is a book that details […]

humility 2

Humble Like A Child

How prideful do you think you are? How humble do you think you are? Like everyone, I knew I had the sin of pride in my life, but until recently I really didn’t realize just how much pride I had, especially in my thoughts. Matthew 18:2-4 He called a little child and had him stand […]


Looking Forward

In the three scripture readings for Sunday, the theme seemed to be about forgetting the past and focusing on our life with Christ going forward. I know we can sometimes learn from our past mistakes and sins but our main focus should be cultivating our relationship with Christ and allowing Him to lead us forward […]


In Praise of Charity

Here is a sermon by Pope St. Leo the Great who lived between 400-461 A.D. In praise of charity      In John’s gospel the Lord says: By this love you have for one another, everyone will know you are my disciples. In a letter by John we read: My dear people, let us love one another […]

Diet for the Soul

Diet for the Soul

Many people, when they diet, they usually track what they eat every day. They use some system, online or on paper, to track how many calories they consume as well as carbs, fat, protein, fiber and sugar. 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not […]
