7QT Battle of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha vs. The Crayola Experience

Join Jen at Conversion Diary for 7QT

1. Over at Alexandria my pilgrimage to Saint Kateri and a pit stop at the Crayola Factory. You can read my review on Trip Adviser on Crayola. Saint Kateri won hands down!

Their Shrine is an old barn. You go in and the smell the aging wood. It was a Monday and no one was around, but us. We had the place to ourselves. In the lower church/barn, was the museum. The museum is open and free, but they do ask for a suggested donation of a few dollars for the visit.

2. Also over at Alexandria "More on Natural Family Planning", it's a good post from someone who is critical of NFP.

3. Evolution of Monogamy in Humans the Result of Infanticide Risk, New Study Suggests

Once fathers decide to stick around and care for young, mothers can then change their reproductive decisions and have more, brainy offspring."

4. PTSD After Traumatic Events: Which Teens Are at Risk?

Risk factors associated most strongly with trauma exposure included: Lack of both biological parents in the home.

5. Do you have four minutes?

6. Recent commentary on fatherlessness.

The topic is complex, but seeing this from a strictly scientific standpoint, it seems to me that since not one of us would exist without a father, fathers are naturally an important piece of what constitutes a strong and healthy society.

7. We already have hundreds of crayons, but you know you can't leave the Crayola Experience with a hundred more!

We plan on visiting to more shrines in our travels, and less 'experiences'.


  1. What a great video. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  2. Please share. The video was made by a local doctor.
