The Drosten's Curse: Yet Another Doctor Who Review
This book was so much fun! I enjoyed every second of it and I'm sure you will to. The Drosten's Curse is a classic Doctor Who novel featuring the Fourth Doctor and people being eaten alive at a golf course. The mystery is thick and complex. How are all of t...

You have a number of very good points. I would suggest looking back at the video, make an outline of your points, and produce a shorter video (maybe more than one). A lot of people who disagree with you won't sit through a half-hour video, although I think they should hear this. Great job!

Doctor Who: The Crawling Terror, a Book Review
First of all, this book had the most hilarious ending I've ever read. I could easily see a writer thinking up that ending and writing the rest of the novel around it. Before saying anything else, if you have an issue with bugs. If the idea of large insects ...

As a way of perhaps reigniting interest in the saint and her doctrine, here are five facts that are often missed in summaries of the story of St. Thérèse.

Yesterday, the popular website, Buzzfeed, gathered 22 of their female employees in an attempt to highlight reasons why the women use birth control. The article does not address particular forms of birth control, nor does it address any concerns associated with the use of birth control. Other…

Doctor Who: Silhouette, A Review
I saw Madame Vastra, Jenny, and Strax on the cover and I knew I had to get this book! These characters are my favorites. In this book, they were depicted flawlessly. I love it when you can hear the characters speak in a book just like they do in the show. O...

This is a awesome! I would only add on thing. The panicked pregnant woman is not alone. 50% of all pregnancies that are not aborted were unplanned. I think that's one silence that needs to be broken. We're all so worried that we'll scar our kid for life if they knew they were unplanned. But think of all of the children that could be saved by our honesty. Unplanned kids are not abnormal or less than, they are simply unplanned. And for every panicking pregnant woman, there is a mother who has been exactly in her shoes.

Story
Tagline
Jobs that take up my time, in order most to not as much: Wife and mother, lay Dominican, Feminists for Life, writer, sleep.
Introduction
Stay-at-home mother of a tall, skinny, extremely energetic toddler, I spend what little free time I have volunteering as Campus Outreach Coordinator for Feminists for Life and writing for a number of different websites listed below. I'm a pro-life feminist. I'm a convert to Catholicism and a recent theology school grad. I have a background in nursing and I am trained as a hospital/hospice chaplain. That background knowledge colors pretty much everything I do.

Married to my best friend and able to be the person God made me to be.
