What About Africa?

For all of my readers asking this question, you should know that I am too.  For the longest time I was so sure that God was calling me to foreign missions, particularly in Africa.  But as I continue to surrender my dreams to His will, something strange is happening: he is calling me in completely…

This is a great video giving a different perspective on Advent. Also, this priest has tons of videos on all different topics that you should check out.

A God of Surprises

So I wrote a post about two months ago revealing I am discerning religious life.  It has become obvious that God is definitely calling me down that path and now that almost everyone in my life knows, I’ll be using this blog to track my journey towards sisterhood from now on. God sure likes keeping…

Falling in Love with DC

I really slacked off on blogging this summer… I’ll try to catch you up on all the incredible things I’ve been doing and experiencing. First of all I need to say… I LOVE DC … No but seriously, I love this city and would move here in a heartbeat.  Well, as long as I can…

Museums, Bookstores and Restaurants, Oh My!

You’re probably starting to wonder whether I decided to join the Peace Corps and am off in some remote jungle with no internet access.  Alas, I have no good excuse for my lack of posting except for insane busyness and laziness. I can’t believe I’ve been here for almost a month already!  The time has…

Peace Corps: The Hardest Job You'll Ever Love

The hardest job you’ll ever love; this is the tagline used for the Peace Corps and I think it accurately describes my time there so far.  While my internship is nothing close to serving in a rural village of Kenya, it has been demanding and exciting. I didn’t start my internship until a week after…

When in DC: Settling in and Orientation

Wow. Let me take a second to catch my breath. I arrived in DC a week ago and I feel like I haven’t stopped moving, learning and taking in the sights.  There is so much going on in this city and it seems like everyone has someplace to be.  I know there is enough here…

January 5th – "Making the road smoother"

On our last day in San Lucas we literally helped “make the road smoother”, as Fr. Greg pointed out was our job on the first day.  We also learned some patience and that there is little sense of a schedule or hurrying in Guatemala. Originally we were scheduled to work at the women’s center again…

January 4th – Picking Coffee!!

I’m going to start putting dates on my posts so you have context as to when each thing happened. Today we finally did what we had all been anxiously waiting for – picked coffee!  Coffee is the heart and soul of Guatemala and we were excited to get into the nitty gritty of that heart…

Zanzibar International Film Festival

The Zanzibar International Film Festival is held annually in Stonetown and I was lucky enough to be here while it was going on. ZIFF is an organization which works to preserve and support the Arts in East Africa.  The other volunteer and I went this past Monday to check it out. To make it worth…
