It’s Friday again and time for 7 Quick Takes at Conversion Diary.
1. Another Snow Day
My two youngest sons are happily home from school (and still sleeping at last glance). Buses were canceled today since we’re in the midst of another snowstorm. Truth be told, I like both the fact that my boys are home AND the snowstorm (especially if I don’t have to drive in the snow!)
2. Lent is Coming!
In anticipation for Lent, I’d like to share a few of my favorite Lent books:
Welcome Risen Jesus by Sarah Reinhard
Bring Lent to Life by Kathleen Basi
Bringing Lent Home with Mother Teresa - Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle (New!)
3. Cool Two Minute Lent Video
Want to learn what Lent is all about in two minutes? Check this out. (The purple wording is hard to read, but otherwise a short and to the point video!)
4. Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day is the second day of Lent this year. All next week (Feb. 12-16), my book Come My Beloved: Inspiring Stories of Catholic Courtship will be FREE on Kindle. Read about how some famous and not-so-famous Catholic couples met and fell in love.
5. Excellent Article
Excellent article by Jen entitled “Those Catholic Women Who Use Contraception.’
