Action Alert - Oppose the Unprecedented Attack on Conscience and Religious Freedom. As early as this week, the Senate may vote on a bill by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), the Protect Women's Health from Corporate Interference Act (S. 2578). This measure would not only reverse the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision, but go far beyond. S. 2578 negates any right that employers, insurers or employees may have under Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) or any other federal law, to opt out of federally mandated coverage. Please do what you can to urge people to oppose S. 2578. Send e-mails through NCHLA's Action Center - This misnamed measure could potentially empower federal officials to mandate abortion or any other item in all health plans, forcing Americans to violate their deeply held religious and moral beliefs on respect for human life.

Marriage Moment. The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant…finding a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it (Mt 13:45-46). Your spouse is like that pearl. Don't let work or projects or hobbies or even your children bump him or her from first place. It's priceless.

Parenting Perspective. The last Sunday in July has been designated as Parents Day. Why not make it more than a Hallmark kind of day. Reflect on how your children need the talents of both parents to thrive. If you're a solo parent, use this opportunity to seek out a trusted friend to provide some of the skills you lack to round out your child's development.
