On the weekend of April 8th 2011, at Rolduc Seminary, people from all over Europe gathered for the European Life Teen Training Conference. The theme for the weekend was “Veni Sancte Spiritus,” which means, “Come Holy Spirit.” Randy Raus, the President of Life Teen, had mentioned that when you call upon […]
A little over a week ago, as I sat down for Mass in the wooden pews of the Carmelite Convent in Sittard, I really wanted to take some time to prepare my heart to be completely open to whatever the Lord had for me. Lately, I’ve encountered a lot of challenges in living […]

Once a year, there is a glorious occasion where family members from all over the United States travel for miles to gather around a table, break bread, and share what they are thankful for. We know this day as Thanksgiving! This is a holiday that has always been near and […]
Lately, God has been teaching me to pay more attention to what and where he’s leading me. I like to describe it as tuning into those initial gut reactions that happen before making a decision. I’m finding that the common, everyday decisions are where it counts the most because those are the ones […]
