LIFE

I have come so that they might have life, and have it abundantly.

Matthew 10:10

November 4

I’m not one to make election predictions, but I do predict that on November 4, 2020, we will not know who will be the next president of the United States. I’m worried that our country is not prepared for this kind of non-result in a general election, especially this...

A Weekly Pilgrimage

Have you ever had a profound conversation in the most mundane place? God can work anywhere.   I was at the hair salon and I pulled out a rosary to pray as my hair dye set in. Jesus had other plans because as soon as the hairdresser saw it, he immediately asked me...

How Tithing is Teaching me to Trust God

At the beginning of each new year, I, like many of my friends, choose a Word of the Year. Essentially, it’s word or phrase intended to capture a vision for the year ahead – what I want to focus on or where I feel called to grow.   Toward the end of 2019, I started...

Wayward Buddies: What the graduate school application process taught me about God, discernment, and competition

As fall rapidly approaches and I settle in to begin my first year in my graduate program, I find myself thinking back to this time last year. I was refining my CV, fastidiously researching programs, attending virtual informational sessions, soaking in advice from...

The Joy List

Today I was walking around my neighborhood and came across a house that was fully decked out for Halloween. It was the whole shebang: cobwebs on the fence, skeleton ghost in the tree, and a black cat on the front door. I couldn't help but think - isn't it a little too...

The Glory and The Garden

The Transfiguration pulled me in this morning (Matthew 17:1-8). As I was reading through the notes, I learned that this was not the only time that Jesus takes Peter, James, and John apart to pray with Him in scripture. He invites them to do so again: in the Garden of...

Goodness in the Pandemic

A mere five months ago, the streets of DC were bustling with busy Washingtonians rushing from work to networking events to happy hours, squeezing in workout sessions at Orange Theory, and strictly 45 minute coffee meet ups.  Conversations with passersby whom you...

The Hunger for God

I know what it’s like to struggle with habitual mortal sin. I know what it’s like to justify it, play it off and keep the shame locked inside.   When I was 14, in my last month of eight grade at my small Catholic school where I had been since I was 9, I was...

He Made You for More

In a two-week period this winter, I went from looking at engagement rings and picking a wedding date to single and searching.   Not for a man, but for a lost identity. For most of 2019, I struggled with despair and general blech. Circumstances at work and in my...
