My eyes sparkled as I examined this beautifully designed purse. I was still thinking about it when the liturgy started and felt guilty pangs for my lack of concentration during liturgy and for the reason of my lack of attention: a Prada bag!
Hello friends, It is a blessing and a privilege to be announcing the 4th SuperHoly book during Lent! What better time to introduce the Faithfulness SuperHoly than during our journey towards Salvation? Philo and the Faithfulness SuperHoly, the newest in our series, is slated for publication in the summer of 2019!

Our son has come to expect the Christmas tree to make an appearance with the first snowflake to hit the pavement. He associates winter and snow with Santa and gifts. When we had the first snowfall, on Sunday, he immediately asked if we could put up the Christmas tree when we returned home from church.
