Summer camp 2013 is done. Boy was it one for the record books! I’ve been involved with summer camp since 2010. I’ve served as a summer staffer and in the kitchen at Covecrest. I was camp photographer at Camp Tepeyac, and this year I was Prayer Coordinator and Summer Staff […]

I just purchased “Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska” and HOLY COW! Gosh her life is really really REALLY cool. I’ve only been flipping through a bit of her diary these past few days in prayer but she just has these one liners that hit a place in my heart […]
I miss home. I miss sleeping in my room on Long Island. I haven’t been there since January and I won’t return until half way through August. I miss hearing my sister’s crazy music blasting from her room. I miss the air compressor going on and off in my dad’s […]

The hike started out great, we literally walked down 500 steps. Then the scary part came. We had to cross over these HUGE boulders with water below us. Now the water wasn’t moving any faster than say the way water would come out of a garden hose but for some reason I became completely paralyzed and my hands and legs were shaking.
I wouldn’t take that first step of faith even though my sisters were lovingly encouraging me along. Eventually, after a lot of convincing, I took the first step . . .
Just four days before I began my mission year, I found out that I had a gluten and dairy intolerance. I knew the world wasn’t going to end: a lot of people have this and it is very manageable, but I still became extremely anxious. I was worried that I […]
