Welcome, National Review readers

July 3, 2008 | 13 comments

I was delighted to see a link to my America Magazine article on the front page of the National Review. If this is your first time visiting, here’s a little introduction to this blog. And here’s a list of some of the most popular post for the past few months to give you a feel for the site:

    Congratulations Jennifer! I lurk about and read your posts. I find them so well thought out and expressed as well as uplifting.

  2. SuburbanCorrespondent

    Congratulations! You are a thoughtful and articulate writer; it’s no wonder the National Review linked to your article. Your ability to understand where the “other side” is coming from makes your arguments for God and against abortion all the stronger. I love reading your blog!

    Ohh, neat!

    (They have “atheist” spelled wrong in the link to your article!)

  4. Edward L. Peffer

    Truths are needed today. Muslims teach that Jesus was never crucified. Promote the Shroud of Turin website. Encourage bishops to meet at Fatima regarding Mary’s specific request -as Putin is still communist. Promote Humanae Vitae, –free on the web download.
    This war can end when we honor Mary’s logical requests. The Rosary contradicts Muslim’s view of Jesus’ as Savior, and Trinity.

    Jennifer, thank you for your blog! I found my way here about a week ago, and I’m loving it. You’re a great writer and the everyday stuff mixed in with discussions of your faith makes for great reading. Thank you for sharing your story. It’s wonderful to see someone that has embraces her faith everyday and give me hope for an atheist family member.

    Congratulations, Jen! When I started my blog (the Soccer Mom one), I dreamed of NRO linking to me. (HA!)

    I also read your article, which I loved. Congratulations on being published and famous for more than your housepets — I mean house PESTS. 😉

    Congratulations on the link, but more so on writing such a wonderful and intelligent article. I can not for the life of me understand how other well educated individuals can completely miss the boat on what abortion means. Good for your and your husband for re-examining your lives and coming around to the place where you can stand in the presence of our Lord and feel good about what you have done in witnessing to all you could reach about such things.

    I was always on the fence about abortion – until I had my first child in my mid-40s. Never having been in the position of having to make that choice, I didn’t feel like I could make it for those who did find themself with an unwanted pregnancy. Of course, my feelings changed once I saw my own child on the sonogram.

    Your article over at National Review was one of the best pro-life treatises I have ever read. Just excellent

    Great article hon, hmmm you live in Austin too, i see 🙂

    I am profoundly grateful for the moment that my twins’ birthmother looked at her 6 week old “fetuses” on the ultrasound screen and came to the inescapable conclusion that they were two human beings and that God had a plan for them. She too, had been raised in a world that told her that they were less than human and had believed it, now she sees the value in every life.

    And because of that, the monstrous evil of a rape has been transformed into something beautiful in her life and in ours.

  13. Tertium Quid

    I am very happy that your writings are getting attention at both America and Nat’l Review.
