I’ve had a string of strange coincidences happen to me lately. I know I’m the kind of person who has a tendency to read more into things than may actually be there – but for the most part I’m a pretty level headed person, I just believe that God speaks to us is many ways. Continue Reading »



I’ve been struggling lately. Depression is something that I’ve struggled with my whole life. It’s hard for me to talk about being depressed and being a Christian in the same sentence. Part of me has always thought there must be something wrong with my faith if I am depressed. I must not really believe in God – I start to feel like a fake. Continue Reading »

so my soul pants for you, my God.

2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?

Lately I have been overwhelmed with gratitude. Sometimes it seems I just can’t stop being amazed at how God reaches out to help me. I know he does it, but I never ceased to be amazed that I matter to him, and that he makes a path for me to travel in this world.

Happy St. Joseph’s Feast Day to you! This is a special day for me because St. Joseph is someone that I have a deep devotion for. I believe that St. Joseph has helped watch over me and helped to bring my husband into my life. Our son that passed away was named after St. Joseph, so that makes it special too. I hope all of you have a peaceful and beautiful day and sometime during your busy day, remember St. Joseph and how this simple and quiet man who worked as a carpenter was given the unique and magnificent privilege of being the foster father of God Incarnate.
