7 Quick Takes Friday – Volume 55

7_quick_takes_sm1It’s time to join up with other Catholic bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday.

1. Prayer Intentions:
Continued prayers for Jen and Fulton.

2. March for Life – January 22
Large numbers are expected in Washington DC for the National March for Life. Check out this pro-life video with President Obama’s own words:

3. NFP Organizations and Working Together
James and I are fortunate to be part of a wonderful diocese where NFP organizations work together to promote NFP and not against each other. John Paul II never endorsed any one method of NFP over another. NFP teachers should work together to promote NFP, regardless of which method they use and teach. (More on NFP organizations working together in a future post…)

4. Wedding Photo (58 years ago)
This week would have been my parents’ 58th wedding anniversary. My father died when I was 18 and my mother remarried. However, every year on January 15, I remember them both. This photo shows my parents and both sets of grandparents.

5. Frost – It’s COLD!
It’s hard to see in this photo but it’s so cold that the frost is nearly three inches high on our window (it’s 30 below zero C).

6. A Subtle Grace
My new novel’s cover will be unveiled next week! I’ve been trying to finish this manuscript so I can move onto other projects, although admittedly I’m enjoying the characters so much that I’m torn between wanting to finish and wanting to keep them around!

7. “Officially Married” Cartoon
Our latest cartoon for Family Foundations:
