Church Cleaning plus

We helped 4 other families and the Franciscan Brothers clean Our Lady of the Angels' Oratory after (and sort of during) renovations. It was sooo good to make such a positive contribution to a church. All the kids helped. Well, ds#5 didn't exactly help, he was mostly running away and needed chased after. So we made him the official photographer!

FREE Pro-Life Song Download - "You Are There"
"One night I woke up suddenly because of a gruesome dream about abortion. A few weeks later, I woke up singing the tune that is now "You Are There." I was inspired around the end of the 40 Days For Life 2008 Prayer Campaign. In Spring, 2009, I submitted my song to Susan B. Anthony List's Lia's Challenge, a pro-life youth contest. I was so excited to be a finalist. When I didn't win I thought that was the end of my career as a songwriter and warrior for life. I didn't know it was really just the beginning." - Debut of 12-year-old artist, Emma MacDonald, her signature pro-life song, "You Are There."

Follow along with the lyrics - at Redeemer Radio's AM1450 fb link.

A Benefit for local HERO Scott Schroeder

Thank you for taking the time to read about local Fort Wayne HERO, Scott Schroeder. Scott has spent 24 years of his life doing what he loved, fighting for his country as a Special Services soldier. Scott Schroeder was severely wounded in Afghanistan on December 9th, 2010. The vehicle Scott was traveling in was hit by an IED and Scott sustained life threatening injuries.

Immediately in the field, Scott had to have both leg amputated above the knee. It was still unclear how much damage had taken place to his arm and other areas due to extensive blood loss.

Next, Scott was put in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator before being transported to Germany where they performed further evaluation and found that he was stable enough for the flight back to the states. Scott was flown to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C. They say this could be Scott’s new home for at least the next year while he heals and goes through a tough rehabilitation process.

Scott is married to his wife Laura and they have a teenage son, Zach. his parents are Jim and Susan Schroeder and has two brothers, Shawn and Shane, here in Ft. Wayne. Scott and his brothers attended St. Jude’s Catholic School and graduated from Northside High School. The Army has been great in financially supporting travels for Scott’s wife and son, but there are many expenses for Scott and his family not covered.

We are having a benefit for Scott on january 30th at Fort Wayne Turners. Any item that you may be able to donate for the auction or monetary donations would be greatly appreciated. With the hustle and bustle of life, many people forget about the sacrifices being made by our troops. if you wish to donate a monetary gift, please feel free to donate to the Scott Schroeder Fund at Three Rivers Federal Credit Union. if you are able to donate any item for the auction, or questions about the event, please contact Michelle Schmidt at (260) 414-4695 or (260) 485-8616 or email at michelle@maximumsports.com.

We can listen to the class at our leisure (ha ha ha ha) and then have an MNO once a month or a skype discussion around it. Of course, we'll have to have snacks. ...Now I've gotten myself excited about something new! Who's interested???]
