I raised my nine children in the shadow of other dedicated Catholic mothers, mostly homeschoolers, who thought Halloween was evil, dedicated to witches. Their children were not allowed to celebrate with their neighbors but went to a church basement to celebrate All Saints Eve.

This church was an hour away from us. More importantly, I felt my children suffered enough because of a perceived alienation from their peers. At our tiny Catholic, country school everyone dressed up for the day and often joined friends afterward to go door to door. I did not want to deny them the joy and creative... Read More

Sport doesn’t necessarily have to be boring and exhausting. If the thought of going to the gym makes you tired already, why not drop the idea and try something else?

You should never force yourself to do something that doesn’t make you happy. Instead, consider taking small steps. Ask your friends if they would like to start a new activity with you. You will have more fun in a group than by yourself.

Try a few different activities and find something that feels right for you.

Ants scurry about, eyes trained on the ground in front of them, hauling loads of food that are bigger than they are. They are completely oblivious to the world around them, fixated solely their own tiny society. Often this narrow viewpoint leads to disastrous results, with whole colonies wiped out of existence when the macrocosm surrounding them crashes into their little world.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to communicate with an ant, or to warn an ant of danger. Any offer of help frightens them because an ant perceives anything that intrudes into their microcosm as a threat. I cannot... Read More

Allison is the host of a 10 a.m. weekday talk show called A Seeking Heart with Allison Gingras. The week before Mother’s Day, she hosted five Catholic Women Bloggers to bring an awareness about a new type of Catholic writer. Bloggers are real writers, she stressed, they simply use a different medium to reach the public with their message.

I was shocked on Monday evening when Allison phoned to brief me on the hour long conversation scheduled for the next morning. Actually it was a blessing I had forgotten about the interview because I had no time to worry about what I would say on Tuesday,... Read More


Within two years the pundits of op say that they will be able to transplant heads so in advance i take my head off to all you writers who have been published (punished?) and more to the point advance, those who have or are actually making a quid out of it.

Man, the attention span among arty people fellow scribblers when you borrow a coffee off them these days is a 'pre book' event. Once you could sit back have a good gab and the listener's undivided attention; wandering when a honey walks past rarely and says "hello Mario how are you" swamping the coffee... Read More

Since preschool, adults have pushed you to excel, to rise above your peers. My generation has groomed you for success, to get into the best universities and snatch the most prized careers. Well, it is nice to have confidence, to fulfil your dreams and have a sense of satisfaction in your chosen field of work but that will not make you happy.

Just take a look at the generation that has gone before you. The common mid-life crisis is a testament to the failure of a life focused on career advancement to the exclusion of family. Men and women bemoan the fact that they did not have time for... Read More
