Ash Wednesday

Today Is Ash Wednesday!  Here's the scoop…

The act signifies repentance before God (as related in the Bible). The priest or minister says one or both of the following when applying the ashes:

Remember that thou art dust, and to dust thou shalt return. —Genesis 3:19

Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel. —Mark 1:15

Blood Water Mission

Join us as we bring clean water to Uganda through Blood Water Mission!

It’s a big commitment to not drink anything but water for Forty days. But from February 22nd to April 7th, that’s exactly what we’re asking you to do. It’s a lot easier if you do it with other people like your friends or family. Remember, Sundays are feast days! You get to enjoy your favorite beverages one day out of the week, which will remind you just how much you miss them the other 6 days.

Be sure to visit the webstore to order a new Forty Days of Water bottle to remind you to head to the tap!

By giving up what you’d normally drink in exchange for the water from your tap you can save that money to help build clean water projects for communities in Uganda. You can stay updated on the work you are enabling by reading the Blood Water Mission blog and project updates.

Tools for parents

Ways to Spy on (keep track of) Your teen driver.

GPS-based tracking systems can record where your teen drives and his or her behavior along the way.

When the DriveCam video feedback system senses risky driving, it records a few seconds of what the driver is doing and seeing. The footage is sent to DriveCam, where it is analyzed by a safety professional. Once a week, parents are sent a report that includes the footage and advice on how to improve.

The CarChip Pro records data and allows parents to set thresholds for speed, acceleration and braking. If these thresholds are exceeded, a beeping sound alerts the driver. At $119, it is one of the more cost-effective options.

The iGuardianTeen app, for example, disables texting and calls. A report is sent to parents after every driving session, and includes information about top speeds, duration of thetrip and any excessive G-force events triggered by sudden braking or swerving. The program alerts parents if the app is shut down. It is only available for Android phones and costs $4.99.
