It’s been much, much too long since our last Field Intelligence Report. Who knows why (the prevailing rumor is Real Life™)- but it’s back! And not as a zombie or sparkly vampire or anything weird like that, either. We changed the image, but beyond that – still ten links centered on the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. And the whimsical, if the case may be.
With Mother’s Day a little over a week away, we figured starting off with a link to Mother’s Day Gift ideas was apropos. And not just run-of-the-mill gifts, either – items produced and sold by men and women religious groups and orders. Love your Mom and support the Church at the same time! Win-win!
Check out the entire roster – from a heart-warming story when a stay-at-home Mom was invited to her daughter’s class to talk about her career, to a tutorial on how to open a bottle of wine using a shoe and a wall. That’s a skill some stay-at-home Mom’s might want to have, amirite? 😉
No guarantees the FIR will be published each and every week – because Real Life™ – but we’ll do our best to make it happen. If you come across a story, video, or podcast you think deserves to be in the FIR, send us the link! Post it as a comment, or email us (located on the Get In Touch page, see above). We can’t promise we’ll use it, but we do promise to check it out!
