In September, we discussed the present stage of the sex abuse scandal in the Church which is reopening old, painful wounds and is causing horrible scandal. The scandal does not have a simple explanation; multiple factors have gone into its cause. Its effects are universally horrible and long lasting. This complexity may not be completely resolved, but this webinar will aim at offering perspectives on what has gone on, especially within the context of modern culture. We will also discuss some of the ways each of us can contribute to the healing and improvement of the Church.

Make My Life Simple

From the outside looking in, Rachel Balducci’s life was enviable. A mother of six beautiful children, she had a career as a writer and speaker and was married to a busy attorney with his own practice. She was organized, capable of handling it all, armed with a killer to-do list and an up-to-date calendar.

But those on the outside couldn’t see that Rachel was a mess, a bundle of anxiety and exhaustion.

One night, in desperation, she cried out to God, and he answered in a startling, freeing, and life-changing way. If you are feeling more chaos than peace, more panic than joy, take heart. Make My Life Simple: Bringing Peace to Heart and Home gives you down-to-earth practical pointers to achieve peace and order.

Join us as Rachel talks about her new book.
