Good morning from the humid glory of Florida in July where I am enjoying working with a new group of Catechists of the Good Shepherd only a mile from the beach.  Yes, it is very rough, but someone has to do it!  We are on Day Three now and swimming in work more than waves, so I’ll be brief, but I wanted to share that last week I got wonderful news from the Catholic Media Association.  Two pieces I wrote received awards at their 2022 awards ceremony.  #Rules_of_Engagement: 8 Christian Habits for Being Good and Doing Good Online placed third in the Church Professional category, and my essay “Feeling Boxed in and Moving Beyond It” took second place in “Best Reporting on a Special Age Group.”  Yes, you may be wondering, “Just how many special age groups are there?”  But let’s celebrate wherever and whenever we get the chance nowadays!

Also worth celebrating: Let’s Talk About Truth is on sale on Kindle (until July 24) for only $1.99.  Can’t beat that.

I hope that you are also finding plenty to celebrate in your life right now, too.  May these toasty days of summer be filled with joy and grace for you.
