I have been thinking about what to blog about in regards to the silent retreat and honestly, I don’t think words can convey what God began to do in my soul and really, what He continues to do. In part because I am still in the midst of understanding what […]
I enjoyed my Christmas break so much. I feel like last time (Thanksgiving break) I did not pray into the break much, I figured it would be fine. My family is pretty solid and devout to the faith so I thought I will have n issues really. But when I […]

Sin would reduce me to […]
