The Feminist Case Against Abortion
Last edited 20th January 2015

Not all feminists support abortion. Properly defined, feminism is a philosophy that embraces basic rights for all human beings without exception—without regard to race, religion, sex, size, age, location, disability or parentage. Feminism rejects the use of force to dominate, control or destroy anyone.

Soar, my Daughter
Last edited 20th January 2015

Growing up, my family was involved with a religious community that believed (wrongly) that everyone should become celibate. Back then, we had no idea how twisted some of their teachings were. At 14, I was convinced I was going to become a religious sister. Maybe that sounds extremely holy, but my desires weren’t from the heart. I longed to be loved by God. If HE wanted me celibate, I would do so.

What It's Really Like to be Married to Jesus
Last edited 18th January 2015

I’m a nun. Technically, I’m a religious Sister, because “nun” refers to cloistered contemplatives. But no matter. We answer to “nun,” too, because it’s in common parlance and rhymes with a lot of words… like “fun.”

How my Life Changed Forever after I got the Depo Provera Birth Control Injection
Last edited 7th January 2015

I got married to Doug in 2005. I knew that we wanted to delay having children for a while, and I had tried pretty much every hormonal birth control method under the sun. I had not, however, gotten the Depo Provera birth control injection. It seemed like a pretty worry-free method.

Dating Gracefully: Advice for Girls
Last edited 22nd December 2014

Before a girl even says yes to a date, she must know that she is a beautiful, perfect creation of God. Similar to the magnificence of Heaven, her worth can be likened to the “pearl of great price” that the man went in search of and gave up everything for (Matthew 13:45-46).

Two Cultures, One Demeaning Attitude to Women
Last edited 9th December 2014

In a recent edition of Canada’s National Post Mona Eltahawy, an Egyptian woman, wrote about the rampant practice of female genital mutilation (FMG). In the same edition Jen Gerson wrote a piece lamenting access to abortion in Canada and the need for increased chemical abortions. Ironically, one cultural practice goes to horrific lengths because a woman’s purity is paramount, whereas another cultural practice goes to horrific lengths because a woman’s sexual freedom is paramount. Either way, the woman’s true interests are subordinated to the village, or dominant culture.

Last edited 5th November 2014

Women of the Bible Featuring Lot's Wife Lot's wife lived a tough life dwelling in the sinful place that was Sodom and Gomorrah. It is interesting to put yourself in her shoes, what did she think when her husband offered her virgin daughters to a crowd full of men wanting to rape the guests that were staying with them? Why did she disobey the angels orders turning back to see the evil town being destroyed? What can we learn from her story today? Lot's Wife's legacy in scripture - Read Genesis 19:1-26.

I Never Want to be a Priest.
Last edited 6th October 2014

“Do you want to be a priest” isn’t just a question that was asked because I was woman studying theology. I think it comes from a deeper place, I think people are genuinely curious why the Catholic Church teaches that the priesthood is reserved to men. And let’s be honest, some people aren’t just curious about it, they are angry about it.
