I don’t know about you, but the teens at my parish often drove a nicer car than I ever did. In fact, when I graduated college, my first grown up purchase was a car. It was from the showroom of a local dealership, which helped save some money. To help […]

There’s this girl. I’ve kinda liked her for a while and for the longest time I knew she loved me. At first, I wasn’t sure how much I could love her, not because of her imperfections but because of mine. She’s honestly great, and I just feel lucky she loves […]

It’s that exciting time of the year when calendars, pencils, erasers, highlighters, apps and dry erase boards help us navigate through the final plan for the next 12 months in ministry. If we are honest, we all know when we submit our final calendar to the parish secretary, it’s unfinished. […]

“I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home.” Luke 9:61 I still remember the call. I was being offered my dream job in Arizona, and I hesitated. I hesitated because it meant leaving my family, financial security, ministry, and friends. I still […]

As a fifteen-year-old girl, Jesus made His first appearance in my life (or more likely it was me who finally opened my eyes to Him) in adoration at my first Steubenville conference. This life-altering experience was the beginning of my lifelong commitment of faith to Christ. Since then, Jesus has […]

Why does God seem to take forever in answering our prayers? We pray and we pray, and we pray, and we pray, but it’s like He doesn’t even hear us! Must be nice up in those clouds without a care in the world! Is God playing golf up there? Am […]
