About Me

Florida, United States
I am a Hopeful Bride of Christ and I long for the day I can dedicate all of my life to Him. I have been actively discerning religious life for about 4 years now and I have been accepted to enter the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church. I hope to begin formation soon and beg your prayers that my student loans do not keep me from entering. With your help and prayers I hope that my entrance to the SMMC will soon be reality. Rest assured that you are all in my thoughts and prayers - most especially those young men and women discerning their vocations, whether to the religious life, priesthood or married life. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I continue this journey toward Him.

The truth about Lent

It is the third day of Lent and already I am struggling with my promises, not so much because of my own choosing but rather because I struggle to find a balance between time with my family and time with the Lord.

In this struggle to say faithful to my Lenten promises I am reminded that Lent is not necessarily at bout myself or even about being able to keep my promises.  It is about living out my faith day by day and improving my relationship with Christ.  The failings are a humbling experience, a gentle reminder that Lent is not about us and our individual goals but rather about keeping our gaze fixed on God.

May your journey this Lent be fruitful and filled with Blessings.

In Christ,
