7_quick_takes_sm1It’s Friday so it’s time for Catholic bloggers to meet at Jen’s Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday.

1. Catholic Writers Conference Live
It isn’t too late to register for the Catholic Writers Conference Live, which takes place next week from August 7-9 in Somerset, New Jersey.

2. Huge Summer Giveaway!
It’s also not too late to enter my blog’s giveaway to win $125 worth of books! Click here to see which books I’m giving away and leave a comment to be entered (before midnight!)

3. Journey to the Father
A few weeks ago, I had a wonderful weekend at the Journey to the Father Youth Conference. I have been attending this conference for nine years as a vendor. I always feel spiritually edified and uplifted and this year was no different. Thank you to all the organizers and volunteers that work so hard to make this weekend such a success!IMG_0726

5. Carol Burnett – Jim Nabors Medley
I recently found my favorite medley from an episode from the Gomer Pyle show on youtube and wanted to share it with my readers!

6. Review of Unlovely
Earlier this week, I reviewed a great new book, Unlovely, by Carol Walsh Greer.

I’ll be taking the next week or so off from blogging since I’ll be visiting with family and attending the Catholic Writers Conference. I’m scheduled to be interviewed by EWTN Radio live from the CMN on Friday, August 9th at 10:30 a.m. so if you’re around your computer, click http://www.ewtn.com/radio/index.asp, then click on “Listen Live.”

  1. Always love your husband’s cartoons, Ellen. Hope your writers’ conference went well, and lucky you to have a venue selling your books at the youth convention. I enjoyed Jim Nabors and Carol Burnett’s rendition of classic tunes. Thanks, Ellen. ~Victoria Marie Lees
