as i have posted in my recent blog.
i have a colleague that saw me reading post here. she then, made me her "mission".
she told me read a verse from the bible each day, reflect on it, live it etc.... (just read my blog) until i realize that what i believe in is wrong and that "i am a lost sheep waiting for the shepherd to rescue me and lead me to the light"
I politely decline, but as all religious person i have met are, it's hard to convince her that i don't need her help.
how can i make her stop "helping" me???

It also seems she's in the Philippines. Probably no protection for here there! :/
As someone posted above. There are verses in 1 Corinthians that specifically tell women to shut up & ask their husbands quietly at home. She should also not be preaching to you with her head covered apparently.

If all else fails this is a brilliant example of questions to ask Christians

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination... End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is, my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath.Exodus 35:2. clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there 'degrees' of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle- room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16.

Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your adoring fan,

As pointed out above. If you are working in a Catholic School then you may just have to endure some of this. It might be that the best you can do is to just ask your colleague to give you some space on the issue.
If I were you I might start looking for another job. She may already be telling people this juicy bit of gossip about you by asking everyone to pray for you. Things like this have a way of getting around.
I'd like to have a short talk with your friend... and learn from her and her friends too..
yeah life for me at work is "hell". i have to pray the angelus, the divine mercy prayer, the rosary... you name it! and i even got to share my what i do or how im "living out the word" and how i experienced Gods love etc.. etc..!

so, yesterday was the first day of our "session"she read to me psalm 53:1. i let her talk and say whatever she like. when she had said everything that she whats to say i told her that i can give a pretty good rebuttal about what she had told me but since i respect her choice of believing god, i would like her to respect my choice as well. but there seem to be something wrong with her ears or how she understand because she still insisted on helping me realize the truth and the truth is that there is god, an all powerful and merciful god, that is ready to accept me and forgive me for my sins... and that i should acknowledge god as soon as possible so i wouldn't burn in hell... etc. etc.
i teach in a catholic school... nuns run the school.
