1. So good to get all your news; makes us feel like part of the family. Wish we could do the babysitting for you in TX… alas…

    And about giveaways, we were gifted with a number of copies of 33 DAYS TO MORNING GLORY — the best-selling book by Fr. Michael Gaitley on the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary. If interested in entering, send an email with 33 DAYS as subject to [email protected] Blessings. dt

    • Deacon Tom – I was really hoping you and Dee would be in attendance at this year’s CNMC. Darn it. Thanks for the info on Fr. Gaitley’s book. I will enter. Godspeed!

    Congrats on being presenters at the conference! i read your blog frequently but rarely comment.
    You folks surely have 2 WAY cute children. You are much blessed — thanks for sharing your many gifts with us all.

    • Howdy Tom. Thanks for dropping by and commenting. We don’t get a large amounts of comments here, but we know folks are reading. And we know we are reaching the Des Moines audience, which has always been our #1 goal – to evangelize in our “backyard.”

      Thanks for your support. We enjoy your friendship!

  3. I’m so, so, so, so happy for you guys! Wow. Such a great time in your lives. And I’ll admit that I may be a teeeeeeensy bit jealous that you get to go to Dallas! Yes, August weather will be likened unto the depths of hell, but you’ll have a great time anyway :)

    I don’t know if they’re open in the summer, but you could try the campus ministry or student life office at UD and see about any responsible, Catholic college students who are local who would be available to wrangle your kids for you? Just thinking out loud…

    • Thanks, Dweej! Wish you could be there, too! Now that it’s all in motion, trying to not freak out about the details — mostly travel arrangements. Great idea with UD. I will try to make some connections.

    Congratulations! Put me in your trunk and I’ll manage the kids while you present, plus help with them throughout. Think I’m kidding? I’d really love to go in any event and would be happy to help on any front. Serious.
