Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received. 
The answer was not much, or at least nothing specific. In general they were happy to have gotten a bag full of letters and there was a sense of feeling loved and supported. I guess that's the main thing - for them to have a sense that this is an important step in their spiritual growth, and that people they know, love and respect have taken the time out of their lives to let them know that! So here are some tips on procuring and writing letters for young confirmation candidates. Start thinkin…

Debunking the myths of the left.

I was a little curious about what some of the die-hard supporters of the current administration were thinking now that we're almost two years into the first term and the country's current situation isn't looking that great. So I engaged one of my favorite bloggers on the topic and got her take. Which was startling. Nonetheless I wanted to see if any of her positions had merit so I'm going to examine them one at a time.

I asked her if we would have this "run away spending" if Obama hadn't won the election. She answered, "Runaway spending? I think the war has dug us into the ground. It is the elephant in the room."

So I decided to check it out and Heritage Foundation had it in pictures. The Heritage Link is also good because it allowed Liberal comments to criticize the findings and then Heritage answered the criticisms! I haven't seen anything to compelling explain how the current administration's quadrupling of the deficit is a good thing? Or how that's all Bush's fault.

So it appears that this particular myth is busted!
