So, recently I’ve been thinking about sainthood. I know that we’re all called to be saints, but do I realistically think I can be one? Many times, I don’t. Have you heard of the universal call to holiness? I was introduced to the idea a few years ago, yet, despite […]
Just a few weekends ago I was blessed to be part of the Work Staff at the LEAD conference in Schönstatt, Germany, put on by MCYM and the Franciscan University of Steubenville. Beyond registration, answering questions, and small acts of service, the Lord had so much in store for me. Hearing […]
In musing over the question, “What’s in a name?” Shakespeare’s Juliet remarks that “[a] rose by any other name would smell as sweet”—but then comes my question—would it be a rose? Many times when I was younger, I wished I had another name. Amanda was a common name when I […]
So, I’m sure you’ve all heard of writer’s block. Well I’d like to start this blog with a similar topic: a little something that I like to call “Blogger’s Block.” Its different from writer’s block because its not that I don’t know what to say or how to end a story. […]
Okay, I have T minus 24 minutes to write this blog because at the end of that time, Melanie, Danielle, and I are leaving for our 8-day Silent Retreat! We are all stoked to have this time to rest and to simply be with God. I wanted to put up […]
Last week at bible study, we had Lectio Divina and discussed this Thursday’s gospel (the Feast of the Ascension: Luke 24:46-53). As I was listening, verses 51 through 53 struck a chord with me. “Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up his hands he blessed them. […]
I love analogies; especially agricultural analogies. It makes so much sense to me that Jesus often spoke in parables, because they take the abstract and make it tangible. Unseen truths of our human nature are materialized in front of our eyes and become undeniable. Without them, I don’t think some […]
Just for fun, I thought I’d share some of my favorite aspects of life here in Süsterseel! 1) Pommes aka really, really yummy french fries that you can get überall (everywhere, that is) and they’re even an acceptable dinner side. 2) The bakery is a two-minute walk from the house and—if […]
So, long time, no blog. Sorry about that. This month has been absolutely crazy. March 3-16th Melanie, Danielle and I were in the States for LT staff retreat and then were blessed with the opportunity to visit our families for a week. It was, to say the least, blessed, hard, […]
Lately, I feel like there is so much I want to blog about and I don’t even know where to start. My sister recently surprised me and sent me The Magnificat Lenten Companion. I was super excited because it got here just in time for Lent (Fastenzeit in German— “fasting […]
