Just recently, I was being overwhelmed by fears of failure and inadequacy. Past insecurities were rising up inside of me. When I was faced with various obstacles, it was hard to stay grounded in peace and see things clearly; my emotions were uncontrollable. It was like I was back in […]
I vividly remember my first College Football game day as a Freshman at the University of Florida. My dorm building happened to be the closest to the football stadium. It was also the closest to the Catholic Church. I woke up around 11:30am, and the first thing I did was […]
In 2005, my sophomore year in high school, I attended my second Steubenville Atlanta Catholic Youth Conference. The theme of this conference was Experience the Glory. As I think back on this conference, I don’t remember who gave the talks. I don’t remember any information that was shared in the […]
Part of the mission for our first year as Life Teen missionaries can be very difficult. Almost every Friday, different parishes of teens arrive at Camp Covecrest (our home for Life Teen Missions year one) to go on retreat with their respective youth groups. Our mission is to Lead Teens […]

They say that men are more intellectual than women. I think that women are often offended by this statement because it’s natural to equate the word intellectual with ‘smart,’ but that is not the meaning I’m talking about. Men are more led by their heads and women by their hearts. […]
“Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win.” -1 Corinthians 9:24 In high school, I was a runner. My main event was the 1600 meter (one mile) race. My senior year in […]
It was sunny with a high of 55 degrees at Covecrest today and I was in a happy place playing football with about twenty 8th Graders who were nearing the end of their school retreat. I was reading the eyes of the other quarterback anticipating an epic interception and run […]
