ON THE CALENDAR
- Monday, July 23 at 8:00 PM (Eastern) my episode of the Journey Home will air, and we’ll find out once and for all if those cameras work like I think they do, or if I’m going to look like I’d been snorting itching powder before I came into the studio.
- Friday, August 31 I’m honored to be giving a keynote presentation at the Catholic New Media Conference in Dallas, TX (along with my friends Elizabeth Scalia, Brandon Vogt, Matthew Warner, and a bunch of other great folks, including Bishop Christopher Coyne). Come join us!
GOOD STUFF TO CHECK OUT
- A young woman named Sophia would like to enter the convent of the amazing Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, but she needs to pay off the student loan debt she incurred while getting her degree in nursing first. If you feel called to help her, there is a donate button on the right-hand side of her blog here. (Either way, do take a moment to read her bio and her vocation story, both of which are touching and inspiring stories of how God moved in one young woman’s life!)
- Here’s a great idea for a charity: The Frontline Faith Project sends MP3 players pre-loaded with inspiring Christian content to members of our armed forces throughout the world. Their goal is to send out 6, 000 of these players in 2012. If you would like to help them, you can make a donation here.
- Marc Barnes and his pals have started a grassroots movement called 1Flesh, whose aim is to get the word out, especially among young people, that artificial contraception is not all it’s cracked up to be. The brand new website is very well done — lots of snazzy graphics and clear, powerful prose. Great work, Marc!
- Our long, terrible wait has finally ended, and Simcha Fisher is accepting speaking gigs now. If you’re looking for a hilarious and brilliant speaker for your next event who will leave your audience laughing, crying, and standing on chairs to shout that you are the best event organizer in the universe, she’s your woman. (No pressure though, Simcha.)
