Hi :] I'm Jess! Roman Catholic, pro-life girly girl in my twenties :] I am a Synesthete and an INFJ :] I'm pretty much Martha Stewart minus the jail (aka I enjoy cooking, baking, decorating, crafting, etc). I also love to surf, write, sing, play my instruments, and do artsy things :] I am madly in love with Christ <3 I love to make friends, so please message me! :] You should check out some of the pages I have made and linked above :] You might find them to be quite helpful! Love you and God bless~
Hello friend! (: First of all, thank you for taking the time to look through my previous tags, I’m sorry that I didn’t cover that topic in the past as much as I should have (if I have at all?). This is a very good question!
I stand with the Catholic Church with my opinion, but I believe in it with my whole heart, and even if the Church had a different view, I would most definitely have this same view:
I do not believe in the use of contraception. There are two major purposes to sexual intercourse- a bond between two people and the creation of life. When contraception is thrown into the mix, it closes off the ability to create life, and that sex is not open to even the possibility that a child could result. When two (married) people are partaking in sexual intercourse, they should both be open to the idea of children.
Now, if there is a reason why the family is not able to take care of children for whatever reason, I do believe in the use of NFP, or Natural Family Planning. The nutshell version of NFP is that it is basically using the ovulation schedule of the woman and planning out love-making accordingly. There are certain times of the month where a woman is more fertile and certain times where she is less fertile. By using this, you are not stopping a birth from occurring, as opposed to the use of contraception. NFP is not a birth control. It is just timing your sex differently by having sex when you’re more likely or less likely to get pregnant.
Note: I am not in any way saying that sex is a bad thing and that you can only have sex for the purpose of having children. I am simply stating that both parties should be open to the idea of children and should not close off the possibility.
I hope this helps!! (: Let me know if you have any further questions!

Hello!! I’m sorry that it took me so long to respond. While it is not for me to say what your experience meant or what to make of it, I do want to say that it sounds like an immensely beautiful and even life-changing experience. I have only heard Mary once verbally, but I wish I could hear her again because I remember being overcome with this great feeling of calmness and serenity, as though all of my problems had been erased. God bless you!!!! Never forget your experience (:
Oh my goodness awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This made my day <3 Thank you so much!!!!! I needed this more than you know, seriously. I appreciate your friendship too, and even though you are anon, I know that you must be a beautiful human being, inside and out <3 God bless you, and good night!!!!!!

Hmmm this is a tricky question… But… challenge accepted!
I think one of the many nicest things is this past retreat I went to, I didn’t buy a tshirt because I didn’t have the money, and someone in my small group knew that and she surprised me at the end of the retreat with a tshirt of my very own <3 I know it sounds materialistic, but it means more to me than any other article of clothing that I own, as this retreat was a life-changing experience and it was just sooooo thoughtful of her <3
One of the meanest…
I guess most of the mean stuff happens on here… I’ve been called the c word, that’s pretty mean I suppose.
I’ve been told by someone on here that they wish someone would rape me and force me to have an abortion against my will so that I would know what it is like. I think that is definitely the meanest I think.
I don’t play favorites, so I challenge everyone to post 10 facts about themselves!!! :D You’re all my favorite!!!
Tag…you’re it! (Also, feel free to tag me in your post so I can see what you wrote :] )

You are not being even the least bit stupid. None of what is happening to you is your fault, remember that!! I’m so sorry that you’re stuck there for now :[ Is there anybody that you could go to about this? Or would you be able to report the abuse to someone?
And I know the feeling of wanting to hurt yourself, trust me. It is one of those feelings that can really consume you and become so overwhelming that you can’t stop thinking about it no matter how much you try…at least in my experience. It makes sense that you are struggling and I am so sorry that you are :[
I will definitely be praying for you, and I’m here to listen anytime you need. You are never alone in your struggles, remember that. You are so loved and you matter more than you know, and so does your well-being. God bless you and know that He is holding you in the palm of His hand!
I do respond to each and every one of them. It sometimes takes me a long time because:
So I apologize if your question hasn’t been answered yet. In case it has been eaten, feel free to resend it and I will try and get to it as soon as possible. I appreciate your patience!! God bless you and have a lovely day <3
PS: Sometimes I get a lot of hate, so I don’t always answer those, but sometimes I do, it just depends on how I’m feeling.
That is definitely incredibly tough, and God understands that we are not perfect. All He asks is that we try our very best to forgive our enemies, but He knows that is really hard, especially when they keep hurting us in different ways. If you are finding it particularly difficult to forgive him, you could also try praying for him. That always seems to help me if I am having a near impossible time forgiving someone. I cannot imagine how you must be feeling about all this, but I can definitely see why you are unable to forgive, at least for now. In the mean time, maybe if you give yourself space from this man for a while, it might make it a little bit easier to forgive? If anything, perhaps he will stop abusing you? I will be praying for you and I will be praying for his conversion!!! God bless you <3
Awww my goodness, thank you so much for this, Anon! <3 This is the sweetest ever! It came at a good time too, as I was disappointed over some bad news, but this really brightened things up, so thank you! <3 God bless you!!!

But you know what? I have nothing to be afraid of. It’s not like I’m ashamed of anything I have posted on here. I blog for God, and if my blog is somehow able to help someone, anyone, even just a teensy bit, then I shouldn’t keep it a secret. So I think from now on, if I have something to share, I’ll open it up not only to you guys, but also to people I know in real life. And if somebody has a question, even if they are from my life offline, then of course I will direct them here. I am one person. I am not offline Jess and online Jess. I am Jess, Roman Catholic Christian woman who is in love with Christ, and I will stop at nothing to further my faith and maybe even help somebody else who may need it.
God bless!!!! Become a saint :]
