Hello. I hope this works. I have a new tab to make posts on Resources. Testing.


Pausing to REST for Christmas!


Good blessed morning, reader! I think I found a video that is related to what is open in this website. However, I need some more input from you. The video is 18:26 minutes long. Would someone you know might want to write more about this? https://youtu.be/vSGAEB6RFIs Father also shares many resources that are most helpful for your journey through your mental illness disorder, depression, and anxiety.

I am happy this morning. I hope you are, too.


More than a few readers (not that many, but they expressed keen interest) have asked for a forum that discusses topics like those found on this website. Once upon a time, I had a keen interest and I began here https://www.catholiconline.school/. This link will lead you to a resource that reaches out to Catholics and non-believers at most levels. From there is what led me to publish books and to blog to help others with mental illness, depression, and anxiety, like me – I was diagnosed a long time ago. By the way, I just donated to this non-profit donation as my gift this year. You may choose to donate, however, it is more important to share with others.


What?! I admit it, I was drawn and called to watch and post this! 🙂

The Most Reluctant Convert: The untold story of C.S. Lewis https://fpatheatre.com/. This website is new to me but I really enjoyed the story it had to tell about C.S. Lewis. I watched it three times in 72 hours. For those readers who study philosophy, although not needed, this website gives insight into the world.

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration https://youtu.be/J41CoeoL51Y is a time for contemplation and prayer. It is a time to read the chat and pray for those present in the Adoration.


“For a child, it still remains true, if their home is secure, if it is safe, if it is loving, their home will have a greater impact on their life and development than their school or their peers.  It is so important that we teach children these things.” – Martyn Ilse

Who am I and who you are? St Paul’s Secret to Happiness https://youtu.be/RYVY4HBTwC8


I get confused often lately. There is so much conflicting information on youtube and the Internet. Paulette sent me this video of Father Andy of the Fathers of Mercy https://youtu.be/kY4IVrpspws It renews me and advises me that only the words of God will not pass. Heaven and Earth will pass. But not the Word.

This youtube video may be of help to some readers.

Praise You in the Storm – Casting Crowns https://youtu.be/0YUGwUgBvTU This is for some readers who compare themselves with other peoples’ lives and need some uplifting.


Here is a link to Father David Meconi, SJ. Sometimes when my reader is a non-believer, he or she might be deterred at something related to religion. Please do not stop here. I didn’t use to believe much but always felt a presence. So, as commented in one of my blogs, I chose to take action in this route. Here is the link to father’s talk entitled https://youtu.be/mIn_WN0j9LM WANTING WHAT YOU DON’T WANT. I might take a look at it again because I learn more listening twice.


This website is one of my favorites https://reallifecatholic.com/.

This is a FREE Catholic education website https://www.catholic.org/ that offers me FREE resources. I like the https://ycvf.org/pages/about-prayer-request-live. (This is a Live Prayer Request Line. I gave a $5 donation because I am grateful.)


What does the Savior do after you have sinned https://youtu.be/FuCw8UT5y6c This is a compelling link of a homily by Venerable Fulton Sheen.


Here’s a favorite from Chris Stefanick – wake up to this on many days https://youtu.be/mHMa2mkFbZU. It refreshes me.


Here’s a favorite song that is really calming by Dream & Alec Baldwin – https://youtu.be/kxWUcCUfDuE – Change My Clothes. To me the song (like my books) encourages me to get out of my comfort zone and try to change my world into a relatively happy environment.


  1. Where do I start? There are so many resources in specialized libraries and in social media. Perhaps, it is appropriate to start with my most important resource – the Father’s Prayer. This link https://youtu.be/uqPkEM2yXDc will give a good start to us sharing here.

2. Let’s begin. I am so excited. Here is a link to NightBirde https://youtu.be/CZJvBfoHDk0. The lesson to learn here is that as a person with mental illness, anxiety, and depression, IT IS OK! (Please try to cut and paste the link if you are unable to click on the link). Let me know what you think. I am now starting to personally build our community by email too.

3. Here is a video from a fella I believe in. Have you ever believed in someone and do whatever he says? This is my fella. I encourage you to watch this video and be in good company with this fella https://youtu.be/EEPJ56TuojU

4. The Book of Virtues by William J. Bennett is a handy book to have around. I read from it occasionally when time permits and it has some content that makes it amusing and is worth the while to read. https://www.amazon.com/Book-Virtues-William-J-Bennett/dp/0684835770/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwgISIBhBfEiwALE19SQXji5EDrYGGXCHJsRnZFZR3uPaOircRXOQMb_OjSjvMkt42rTk-xxoCUzAQAvD_BwE&hvadid=241623408372&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9031256&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=14663016356546374753&hvtargid=kwd-376218797409&hydadcr=22592_10356144&keywords=book+of+virtues+william+bennett&qid=1627512281&sr=8-1
