Update

Tomorrow the pregnant girl (she 19 btw) is going to talk to my  mom's friend again.  My mom's freind is bringing pictures of a 12 week fetus.  Pray for a miracle.

PLEASE PRAY VERY IMPORTANT

 Please pray for a girl at my mom's friend's work, she is planning on getting an abortion next week.  She will be 12 weeks pregnant by then.  She was going to go through with the pregnancy but she has changed her mind. Please pray that she will realize that she has a baby inside of her and not abort.

Movie Review: The Help





I went and watched this movie the other night with two friends who i haven't seen in a while (a whole week can you believe that?! haha) soooo we had a lot of talking to do:P  The Help is set in the deep south in the 1960's when people were very prejudiced.  Skeeter, who dreams of being a writer decides to write a book of interviews of the black maids who work in her hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. She finally convinces one maid, Aibileen, to help her. Then another, Minny, joins them.


After much persuading from Aibileen and Minny  and a death, many more maids  join.


 There was a lot of swearing but that was the only bad thing I noticed.  you can read the review here from plugged in.  The movie stayed really true to the book, which I loved. You should TOTALLY read the book if you haven't already.  The movie was so sad and so funny.

The Truth

I thought you guys should know a little bit about my life right now. So here ya go!

TRUTH IS: High school has been hard for me so far. Academically, I'm gonna be top of my grade. Socially, I fit in, but no one wants to hang out with me. No one dresses modestly, no one hasn't had a relationship, no one goes to mass. It's hard, but I'm going to get through this, I promise. :)

TRUTH IS: I'm struggling with blogging. Firstly, I'm sort of lazy. I could have some awesome posts, but I'm too darn lazy. Secondly, during the week it's hard to find time to post. So, I'm gonna try to be better at that.

TRUTH IS: I'm struggling with my church. Not my faith, but my church. All of the kind, loving priests left, and now we're stuck with a bitter one. He is really nasty, but I'm just going to leave it at that.

Anyways, dont' worry. I'm going to get through it all. I promise. I'll try to be more dilligent about blogging and post better posts. I also apologize to all of our readers and followers, I'll do my part to make this an even better blog. We have lots of giveaways coming from lots of generous people, so please hold on for a while. I just need to get my ducks in a row. And if you guys could pray for me that would be great. I really need some help as far as high school and friends. Thank you all!

Saint Saturday

This week's saint is St. Lawrence, the martyr. He was a deacon under Pope Sixtus II, who also was a martyr. There is a legend surrounding St. Lawrence that, since he was a deacon, he was in charge of the Church's treasury. A prefect of Rome ordered Lawrence to bring forth the treasure in order to give it to the emporer. Lawrence was given three days, and on the third, he came back with a number of poor, blind, sick, orphaned and widowed people and said to the prefect, "These are the treasures of the Church." St. Lawrence was then put to death around the year 258. He is the patron saint of the poor and cooks. We can pray to have moral strength like St. Lawrence and to remain faithful to God even in trying circumstances. St. Lawrence, pray for us!

The truth on why I've been MIA

Well, this past week, I've been missing in action just because I'm lazy....and that's the truth. With school starting this coming Wednesday (yikes!), I had a speech outline to write and other stuff to do. So that's that. Last week though, I was on vacation. My family and I went to Wisconsin to visit my grandpa and grandma's. It was so nice for a vacation, but after a week I was ready to come back home. Here are just a few pics. I'd share all of them with you, but it would both take you an hour to read, and it would crash my mom's computer because her computer doesn't really like photos, it makes it run slow. Anyway, on to the pictures!





This was the beautiful view of the water from my grandparent's back porch....heavenly!





One of the many pretty sunsets...





A pic of most of my family....all except for one. We were on top of this HUGE wooden observation tower.








One of the good photos of my brothers and I.






A picture of part of my family on a lookout spot in the ridges.







The county's boat launching spot....A perfect place for a photo.


That's it, unless you want to look at over 300 pictures......which I'll spare you the trouble of.


I'm hoping that I won't have to limit my blogging when I get into school, but we'll see. Freshman year is pretty easy...
