Grieving With Hope: Is This Possible?

April 9, 2019

So, the question came up last night, “Can you grieve and still have hope?” Let me backtrack here a bit, to give you the full picture. Currently, I run in two different circles: my Bible Study, which aims to lead women into a personal relationship with Christ through Scripture, and my Support Group, which aims […]

Diving Off the Deep End

March 25, 2019

The song “Shallow” from the A Star Is Born movie has been in my head for three weeks. If you don't believe me, ask my family. I am driving them crazy. When I told my friend I hadn't seen the movie, her response was absolute horror. You would have thought I told her that I […]

The Power of Beauty

March 18, 2019

“Beauty will save the world.” Fyodor Dostoevsky What do you think of when you hear the word beauty? My mind first goes to breathtaking sunsets, softly falling snow, a blue sky reflected on a still lake. When I move beyond nature and think of beauty in people, it isn't exterior beauty that comes to mind, […]

Everything You Pray Matters

March 11, 2019

Week after week, Mass after Mass, for way too many years, I thought I was doing God a favor. In that quiet space that follows the pastor's weekly directive, We now pray for our own intentions, time and again, I intentionally gave God my silence and seriously thought I was helping him out. For years […]

Coasting on Fumes: Practicing Spiritual Discipline

March 4, 2019

A risk we all run when we love others lavishly is neglecting to take care of ourselves. What begins as a passion of the heart-a pure desire to help-can actually place us in a dangerous position where we find it hard to stay faithful. When we coast on the fumes of a life that lacks spiritual […]

Struggling To Find Your Calling? Put Down The Ice Cream Carton, and Read This.

February 25, 2019

“What is my calling?” Ever ask yourself that? If I were to make a list of all of the callings I tried on and wore for a season; gymnast, actress, singer, personal shopper, and cake designer, would be just some of the hats you would find in my closet. And for years I believed that […]

Loving Cheesecake is Easy. Loving People is Hard.

February 11, 2019

I always knew I would have a traditional Catholic wedding. It was what we did. My parents got married in the Catholic Church. My sisters got married in the Catholic Church. I, a cradle Catholic, would obviously get married in, guessed it... the Catholic Church. And so we attended pre-Cana, chose the readings, brought […]

When Your Race Has No Finish Line and You Want to Give Up

January 28, 2019

We sat in the last pew at the back of the Church. Knees to the ground, beads in our hands. This was her idea. “I know this sounds crazy, but would you meet me before Mass tomorrow and pray the Rosary?  Will you let me pray for you?” And when we completed our meditation, she […]

The Sticker on My Future Car, and the Elusiveness of Grace

January 21, 2019

In November, I enjoyed a girls' weekend away with friends from grammar school and high school. Yes, we sat around drinking wine in our PJs, swapping stories about our families. But something else was discussed in far greater detail than whose husband snored the loudest, and it dominated the weekend's chatter, and it was all […]

God is Calling: Will You Step Out?

January 7, 2019

There's a lot to be said for playing it safe. It's predictable, comfortable, and doesn't cause ripple effects. It gives us the impression that we aren't hurting anyone. We're neither hot, nor cold-we're coasting in neutral. But playing it safe can also leave us stuck in situations that are stifling for our souls and deadening […]
