Thanks for the Compliment!

You may not be surprised to learn that I have deactivated my Facebook, after that last poem I wrote.  During Mass yesterday it finally sunk in that this has to be a time for prayer and fasting.  I asked God what He wants me to fast from and I knew the first thing had to be…

I told you I wouldn't stop talking about this…

The bottom line of my last blog post was: don’t stress, God will take care of you if you place your life in His hands!  One point I didn’t mention is that our earthly Vocation is not the end all, be all of our lives.  A friend reminded me of this when he responded to…

It's Your Vocation, Not a Vacation!

Vocation, vocation, Vocation, vocation.  I will not stop talking about this. It’s just too important.  As long as people continue to ask the wrong questions and refuse to let God initiate, I will keep talking about this.  Considering the long standing habitual stubbornness of humans, I will probably be talking about this for my whole…

Are You Ready? As I'll ever be…

Are you ready? I’ve been getting this question a lot in regards to entering the convent.  We ask it often of couples about to get married or have children.  We ask it when people are moving.  Basically we ask it when big changes are happening.  I’m starting to realize this question makes little sense.  Am…

A Plea from the Soapbox

We interrupt this creative programming for a very important message from our sponsor – The Soapbox. Just get three jobs. Just wait a couple of years. Worker harder, you can do it on your own. Everyone else has to deal with debt, why should you get off free and easy? These, my friends, are the…

I was talking to a friend recently about her future and she revealed that she really doesn’t know what will make her happy and can’t quite put her finger on what her deepest passions are.  Another friend distressingly confided in me that he feels like he doesn’t know who he truly is.  As I take…

Is This Real Life? It's Eternal Life!

There seems to be an ongoing pattern in my life:  I freak out about not being in control of a situation and then a day or two later, everything falls into place in God’s perfect time.   Well the last time this happened was about a month and a half ago.  I was quickly approaching…

What Am I Doing Here??

The most popular post on my blog has consistently been “Your Talent is God’s Gift to You; What You Do With it is Your Gift to God.”  After noticing this trend I also noticed that it was neither categorized nor tagged.  This means that people are purposefully googling this quote or something similar.  It seems…

"Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God."

This week I’m participating in leadership training to prepare for my role as a student leader in Campus Ministry.  We did an activity that helped us assess our strengths and had discussions based on our results.  We talked about how many programs encourage you to work on your weaknesses rather than identifying your strengths and…
