Bibles in the Beer Garden

A couple of weeks ago I was at a happy hour with some friends in my run club, and the topic shifted (as it often does) to God. The two of them had been baptized as infants and asked me if we'd all end up in the same heaven – you know – a light, 6 pm happy hour...

One Minute on the Clock

A few months ago, a TikTok was going around featuring a young woman in her first job, who was freaking out about working every day from 9-5. She complained that after waking up early to commute into the city, working all day, and commuting home, she had no time or...

Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous

​ I’m officially back at work after two glorious weeks on the beach, and my current project is to help design a portfolio strategy for a public organization. As I was putting together the slide deck outline yesterday, one of the partners suggested I include a page...

Here’s to 29!!

Good morning and happy Tuesday! I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far. ​ Every year during my birthday week, I write the newsletter about what I've learned during that year. (You can go back and look at 27 Lessons fo​r 27 Years, and last year's Ten Truths...

Is It Time To Swap Bikes?

God’s Will is Where We Are

Can you believe it's Holy Week? This is my favorite week of the year to be a Catholic. Gorgeous masses, rich traditions, and so much incense! And of course, it all leads to the celebration of Easter. We're so close! ​ I wrote before how this has been the Lent of...

It Matters to God

I love nothing more than a deep convo with a good friend. Inevitably, at some point in the conversation, they’ll share something they’re going through – a suffering in their life, an annoyance at work, a personal situation, or some other difficulty. My response is...

Matchmaking and a Snowstorm

"You are sleepless; you want to judge everything, direct everything and see to everything and you surrender to human strength, or worse—to men themselves, trusting in their intervention—this is what hinders my words and my views. Oh, how much I wish from you this...

Main Character Energy

Last weekend, I attended a nondenominational Christian service with a friend from work. At one point in the sermon, the pastor put a quote up on the projector that read: "What you think about when you think about God is the single most important thing about you." -...
