Ends and Beginnings

AH. It’s been a while since I posted on here! This past semester was a whirlwind. It was full of tea drinking, paper writing, lots of dancing (teaching, competing, and performing), baby showers, final exams, and did I mention tea? After 3.5 years, I finished college! It’s really funny to think that when I began … More Ends and Beginnings

Love > Convenience

Time=Money. That’s what I always heard anyway. Americans in general are obsessed with convenience. Fast food, food delivery, Amazon, Uber, etc., are all examples of the crazy culture of convenience that has developed. (See this interesting/kind of weird article for more about the culture of convenience in the U.S.) But…when the focus is on what … More Love > Convenience

Pursuing Stillness

“Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). I don’t always follow this command very well. I feel like I always need to be doing something. I rush around, cleaning, working out, doing homework…basically anything that can serve as a distraction for me. Even when I take Molly (my fam’s dog) on walks, … More Pursuing Stillness

Job, in his agony, questions whether it is worth it to continue to seek God if all he receives in … More Remembering Hope

The semester is over. The stress is lessening. Praise God!

My Brother in Heaven

I’ve always known about Will, my parents’ first baby who lived only one day. My parents always acknowledged his birthday (January 28th) as well as his feast day (January 29th). My family would occasionally make a pilgrimage to his burial site where we would pray for the intercession of our little family saint. Growing up, … More My Brother in Heaven

Ardent Charity

  Last fall, in my job as Publications Specialist for my campus’ ministry I was put in charge of a biannual publication sent to donors. Each semester, a theme is chosen for the publication, and this semester the theme was Marian Virtues. I had never heard of the Marian Virtues before, and I loved learning … More Ardent Charity

What You Don’t See

This past weekend I competed at the Southern Region Oireachtas in Houston, Texas. When I decided to start dancing competitively this fall, I didn’t really know what to expect of myself. I decided to start dancing again because I missed it. I realized that life is short so it’s stupid not to do what I … More What You Don’t See
