Last week, I was getting bent out of shape about my sinfulness. I examined my conscience for a very long time, in the hopes that I would be able to go to confession. I even wrote a list of my sins because I wanted so badly to be completely clean. […]
I have found many challenges about moving from Covecrest to Atlanta. Living in the city is entirely different than living at a Catholic camp in the mountains for a year. I love Atlanta so far, and living in the mountains definitely had it’s own set of difficulties and blessings, but […]
On September 13th, as I arrived at the airport to begin my second year as a missionary, I was hit with a dilemma that seems to affect many travelers – my suitcase was too heavy. It was fifty-seven pounds. The weight limit was fifty. I remember being frustrated because I […]
I’ve never been very good with change or transitions. Going from my first missionary formation year to a second year of missions has been a little more difficult than I expected. There has been and still is a lot of unknown in this second year, and I have had many […]
The other day I was running and it sucked. I ran around this one-mile loop three times, just like I usually do. There is this one place on the loop where there are two monster hills, one right after the other. I dread going up them every time because I’m […]
This afternoon I was washing a whole bunch of silverware in our kitchen in the lodge, something that we do pretty often. In order to wash the silverware, we dump it all onto this tray thing with holes in it, then try to spray off the gunk before we sanitize […]
This past weekend, the female missionaries here at Covecrest planned and put together a girls retreat for a parish in Atlanta. This retreat was possibly the most incredible retreat that I’ve ever gotten to be a part of. All of the girls who came were so open to the Lord […]
We went into town the other day to “evangelize” and pray with people, as part of our formation. The point of it was not just to love on people, and not just to talk with them, but to actually ask them if there was anything in their lives that we […]
A couple of weeks ago, I woke up from a really awesome night of sleep and I laid in my bed staring at the ceiling, thinking,”You know, I don’t think I really need to be open to religious life, because I’m pretty sure that God is calling me to marriage.” […]
Lately, I’ve been trying to look at everything we do and recognize that God has something for me in it. Even if it’s something that we’re supposed to be running, like the Confirmation retreat this past weekend, or even if it’s something seemingly pointless like wiping down a table after […]
