Book Review: Tweeting with GOD

  I just got the book Tweeting with GOD by Fr. Michel Remery in the mail. One of the first things I thought was, “This would be a great gift for someone getting Confirmed! Or someone graduating high school!” My second thought was, “Why didn’t I think of this idea for a book first?!”   Tweeting with GOD is a…


When a Woman Likes a Man

I wrote an article with a friend of ours, Arleen Spenceley, regarding what should a woman do (from a man’s perspective) when she likes a man and she’s posted it up on her website.  She’s written some quality stuff, I highly recommend reading her posts.   Check out the article by clicking here!   Remember that dating is less about the games…

Discernment II: Get Quiet

It’s still one of my least favorite words. Of course, I write regarding discerning one’s vocation,…

On Every Breaking Wave

  As a U2 fan, I was one of three people not complaining about a free album that showed up my iTunes library last year. New music from my favorite band, pro bono? [See what I did there?] Yes, please.   One of the most poignant and heart-breaking tracks from Songs of Innocence received amazing new life through its new…

Greatness Awaits…Outside of Video Games

You may have seen the commercials: daring soldiers dodging blasts and gunfire, brothers in combat slaying dragons and flipping cars, or maybe a shadowy figure parkouring over rooftops in an ancient land…all of these images accompanied by explosions because, well…explosions are cool. “Greatness Awaits,” is the final slogan. Greatness awaits…in video games. Ah, now I see. It’s amazing how that…
