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…

Help Ohio Heartbeat Law

From My E-mail

The Ohio Heartbeat Bill will reverse the pro-life slogan, "abortion stops a beating heart," and ensure that: "A BEATING HEART STOPS ABORTION!"

On June 28th, 2011, the Ohio House passed the Heartbeat Bill to protect babies with beating hearts. Now, if 17 of Ohio’s 33 State Senators vote for the bill, it will go to Governor John Kasich to be signed into law--the most protective pro-life law in the nation! Already states are lined up to follow Ohio's lead! Not only do you get to live to see it, you can be a part of it!

Here are THREE things you can do to become the TIPPING POINT & help bring an end to abortion:

1.Attend the Heartbeat Bill Rally in the Ohio State House Atrium in Columbus, Ohio, Tuesday, September 20th (from 11:00-2:00) Wear RED to show your support for the Heartbeat Bill & hear speakers including:
♥ Dr. Jack Willke (Founder Right to Life) ♥ Dutch Sheets (Pastor, Intercessor)
♥ Joe Scheidler (Pro-Life Action League) ♥ Rick Joyner (Oak Initiative)
♥ Wendy Wright (Concerned Women for America) ♥ Jill Stanek (Activist, Journalist)
♥ Troy Newman (Operation Rescue) ♥ Dr. Rick Scarborough, (Vision America)
♥ Dr. Jim Garlow (Renewing American Leadership) ♥ Phil Burress, (Citizens for Community Values)

2.Send a positive message they can't ignore--Red Heart Balloons! Send a red heart balloon to each of the 33 Senators who'll soon be voting with a message from you to protect babies with beating hearts! Show them the nation-wide support by filling their offices with red heart balloons! We will deliver your heart-shaped balloons to lobby the Senate after the rally, so please order yours today!
3.Call Senate President Tom Niehaus and ask him to leave a legacy of life by assigning the Heartbeat Bill to a friendly committee without delay: 614-466-8082.
The Bible says that hope deferred makes the heart grow sick. There are many pro-lifers who are heart-sick because of 38 years of hope deferred. Let not your hearts be troubled any longer--we are on the brink of answered prayer! Babies with beating hearts are about to be protected. Roe v. Wade is about to come crashing down.

Tuesday, September 20th will signal the beginning of the end of abortion on demand in Ohio and the nation! Be counted among those who brought abortion to an end!

I look forward to seeing you on September 20th! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Janet (Folger) Porter, President
