Fall In Love

As we head into Valentine’s Day “weekend,” a little food for the soul to keep everything in its proper perspective. This is one of my favorite poems that describes the journey to which we are invited in this life—if we but SAY YES. Fall In LoveNothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in Love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what […]

Busy? Here’s A Prayer For You…

I recently came across this prayer entitled, “Slow Me Down, Lord” sent out in an email from US Catholic, and wanted to share with each of you: Slow Me Down, Lord Slow me down, Lord, slow me down! Ease the pounding of my heart by the quieting of my mind. Give me amid the confusion of my day the calmness of the everlasting hills. Break the tensions of my nerves and muscles with soothing music of the singing stream that lives in my memory. Help me to know the magical restoring power of sleep. Teach me the art of taking […]

It’s Never Too Early To Prepare For A Phenomenal Lenten Journey…

Hard to believe that in the aftermath of Christmas (I still don’t have my Christmas decorations put away!), that the beginning of Lent, Ash Wednesday, is only 6 weeks away. However, it’s never too early to prepare to make a phenomenal journey to grow closer to God and become more like Jesus, so wanted go share one of the books that I intend to use in my own Lenten journey. That book is entitled, “Lenten Journey with Mother Mary” by Fr Edward Looney. In short, the book takes you through Lent by having us in the first week, look to […]

Two Opportunities For Spiritual Growth In The Atlanta Area The Weekend of February 8th-9th

Just wanted to pass on two PHENOMENAL opportunities for your consideration in case you live ANYWHERE in/around the Atlanta area. Dr Mike Scherschligt (whose daily rosary meditation podcast I HIGHLY recommend), and Dr Troy Hinkle of the Holy Family School of Faith located in the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas are the main speakers for both a women’s retreat day and a men’s morning of recollection. Both opportunities are happening at Holy Trinity Catholic Church the weekend of February 8th and 9th. Saturday, February 8th is a retreat day for women, and there is both an English and Spanish track. […]

The Power and Authority of the Word

This is a wonderful (and super short!) podcast that offers a daily reflection on the Gospel of the day. Enjoy (and thanks for the recommendation Beth!) Also, if you would, please offer prayers for me as I lead a formation day for a local community, particularly that I serve as a good instrument of Holy Spirit so that power and authority of HIS Word may be shared today and much fruit be the result in the lives of all who gather today. Keep doing whatever it takes to grow closer to God and become more like Jesus so you can […]

Belonging and Becoming​ On The Feast Of The Baptism Of The Lord

On this Feast of the Baptism of our Lord, we are also asked to reflect upon the day that we were baptized into the divine life. For many of us, we may not remember the day, but I do—Easter Vigil, March 25, 1989. It was the day that I was also received into full communion with the Catholic Church, and received Holy Eucharist for the first time. For me, a person who has little biological family (I am the only child of an only child of an only child), the biggest feeling I remember is that that I felt like […]

Finding True Belonging and Living Authentically

One of the greatest challenges we have in life is to find the place where we belong and to live authentically. This phenomenal podcast explores both. Brene Brown is one of the best out there discussing vulnerability, while Lewis Howes is always pursuing what it takes to live a life of authenticity. Enjoy! https://lewishowes.com/podcast/r-brene-brown-create-true-belonging-and-heal-the-world/

Spiritual Warfare And Discernment of Spirits

Hey, Everyone! Just concluded a wonderful two day retreat and when I returned home to checked email tonight, was super excited to see the following… The new book is by Dan Burke, founder of Spiritualdirection.com as well as the Avila Institute, and author of Journey to God and Into the Deep. The description of the book from the Amazon sales page states: “With this book as your guide, you’ll grow in strength and contentment as you learn: How to take captive every negative thought and make it obedient to Christ St. Ignatius’s revelations exposing how the Devil seeks to influence […]
