Google and Ye Shall Find: The Internet and the New Evangelization

10 Tips for Talking to Atheists about Christianity
Another piece on Inside Catholic, co-authored with Jason Anderson of The Cynical Christian.
I was surprised and delighted to see that one of my regular reads, Amy’s Humble Musings, linked to this old site of mine (this Then vs. Now chart was the specific page Amy linked to). I’ve now seen it discussed on a few other blogs so I thought I’d ‘fess up that this is my site. I threw it together rather quickly a couple years ago because I thought I had a book deal (I didn’t, as I mentioned here).
I began working on this project after encountering many women who wanted to and were financially able to stay home with children, but felt like failures when they found that it drove them crazy to be stay-at-home moms. Long story short, I did a bunch of informal research on this and was encouraged by a friend with contacts in the publishing industry to put together a site to share what I found. The summary of my message is that the problem these moms faced was not that they were doing anything wrong, but that the setup of our current society makes it more psychologically difficult than ever to be home with kids. The good news is that I believe that once we recognize this and address it head-on, we can make changes that bring a lot of peace to our daily lives. (I’ve also written about this issue here on this blog.)
That’s it for today. Yaya will be here all week, and I can only guess what that will mean for frequency and content of blog posting. Last time she was here during scorpion season it definitely gave me plenty to write about.
