We have a busy 2020 ahead to end abortion...

...and as New Year's resolutions are made (or broken), we must keep first things first.

The culture of death didn't get here overnight. The attacks on the unborn and the destruction of the family come directly from the Evil One whom Jesus Christ defeated on the Cross.

These are difficult but hopeful times in which we live. As we start our year to end abortion with prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil, we reflect on Jesus' simple words:

"Apart from Me you can do nothing." -- John 15:5

I meet many people who want abortion to end but feel they don't do enough. Some of them are right and need to do more. Others need to realize that their daily lives have the power to end abortion.

This is why I wrote the pro-life devotional for busy people -- To the Heart of the Matter.

This 150-page book is very different from my previous books. It serves as a practical guide to how our small daily activities can build a culture of life in a time when attacks on the unborn--and the family--are at an all-time high.

We are busy. We have work, families, house repairs, and sick in-laws.

This book gets to the heart of the matter of our culture war by highlighting the small and large ways we can--and must--help build a culture of life in the life we live every day.

"To the Heart of the Matter may be the first-ever public work that articulates what it is to be pro-life in daily living. It's a response that is fresh and integrated and strikingly bold in its simplicity."

Mother Agnes Mary Donovan, Superior General, Sisters of Life

"To the Heart of the Matter gives us a tangible guide on how we can and are winning this battle with the simplicity of doing everything in our life for God. This insightful tool is so needed in our noisy world. "

Ramona Trevino, Former Planned Parenthood manager, wife, mother, and author of Redeemed by Grace

"Carney's work is an important devotional that leads us to recognize the power of prayer, the importance of life, and the call we all have to defend the most innocent among us."

Billy Hallowell, Director of Communications and Content for PureFlix.com

"In 40 short chapters, he provides practical ways for us to create a space for the Lord to live in and through us, thereby making each moment an opportunity to allow the Lord's own love and life to take root in the world."

Sr. Peter Marie Chrismer, Vocation Director for the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia
