Goodbye Know-It-All

Throughout my whole life, I can regrettably say that I have been that judgmental and know-it-all person, almost always seeing myself in the right, and ready to give my opinion and tell others when I’m right and they’re wrong. There was this intense desire for me to be right, because in my mind, being right […]

The Beauty of the Church

I love our Church! I really and sincerely do. I love everything about our Church. I love the sights of the buildings and the Liturgy, the sounds of the old Gregorian Chant music, the smells of the incense, the physicality (touch) of the priesthood, the taste of the Body and Blood of Jesus. I love […]

It’s the Little Things

A little while ago, I wrote a blog about simplifying my life and about how the simple things in life truly matter. I talked about how I’m beginning to enjoy and appreciate the little things in life. But I’m starting to think of other little things, and just how much the little things matter. The […]

The Opposite of Fear Is…Love?

I love Life Teen’s new theme of Fearless. I feel like it was made perfectly for me for where my prayer has been for the last few months. The Lord has been calling me out of fear, but even more than that, He has been calling me to a greater love and trust. One day […]

When I think of the saints, I think of superheroes.

I often think of the saints as these holy people that I could never really relate to. What a rude […]

Dig Deeper

Every weekday morning I wake up at 5:15 a.m. to do the work-out program Insanity with some of the other guy missionaries. A lot of people call me insane for getting up so early, but, being a morning person, I love getting up early and feeling like I’ve done something useful with my day. One […]

Living in the Father’s Love

This summer, I was blessed to serve for my third summer as a summer missionary before becoming a full-time missionary a few weeks ago. I knew I was called to serve this past summer, but I wasn’t sure why. I decided it would be a good idea to talk to the mission director at the […]
