I just want some food…

For Easter, I went to Seattle  to spend time with a friend. Washington is an incredibly beautiful state with delicious fruits and vegetables; perfect for someone like me with tons of food allergies! We didn’t have a car so we walked everywhere and soaked up the fresh mountain air; it was absolutely amazing! During the few days […]


“Where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy” (excerpt from the Prayer of St. Francis). After a 6 hour missionary van ride, we safely arrived home from L.A. Congress. We have traveled more this month than we […]


We just got back from leading a four day mision with the St. Tim’s teens on the Salt River Pima Marcopa Reservation. Back in September, I was asked to lead this mission because I grew up, as Sr. Clissene would say, in “Native Country.” Throughout my childhood, the Native People have taught me […]


This past weekend, everyone from Life Teen gathered at Camp Covecrest for a staff retreat. Our whole mission family was located at the same place-INCREDIBLE GOODNESS!!!! There was so much love, joy, and hope. My heart was struck deeply by being back with our family; our mission is to love […]

Humble Confidence and Love

For the past few weeks, in formation, we have been reading the study edition of St. Therese’s, “Story of A Soul.” As I was praying through her writing, the themes of confidence, love, and humility spoke to my heart. She was incredibly humble, in a very pure and holy sense. […]

Holy Spirit, Fire Fall, Sing in Us!

Hello my brothers and sisters! God is beautiful! So, I was pondering what I should share with you in this week’s blog.  I was speaking with a good friend of mine, Christina, and asked her what I should blog about. She asked me what the best thing was that happened […]
