The Person Behind the Blog
Hello World! Welcome to the inner thoughts of a soul who is one her way to living God’s will for her. Let me start with a little background on myself. I am a Minnesota native who loves the snow and has always loved being outside. In my family there are my parents, one brother and two sisters; I am the oldest of the four of us. Matthew is 3 1/2 years younger than me, Molly is 13 1/2 years younger than me and Abigail (Abby) is 16 years younger than me. I grew up a cradle Catholic and am still proud to consider myself a Catholic. I graduated from Saint Mary’s University of Winona Minnesota with a BA in Pastoral and Youth Ministry along with having a passion for retreat ministry.
I am a very faith filled person who is out to seek to the will of God. Through abstract and unusual ways God has been trying to revealed himself to me; I finally started to try to listen fully with my heart when Thanksgiving 2009 came around after a trip to NCYC 2009. God in His unique ways has led me towards the Salesian Sisters of Saint John Bosco, formally know as the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA). I entered into formation with the Salesians August 24th, 2010. After having spent about two years in formation, I found myself on a plane heading home. Turns out it was not my time to enter the novitiate. I am now at home looking for a job and praying that God gives me the strength to do what I need to do so I may (God-willing) come back to the sisters.
The writings you will find will most consist of poetry, lyrics, music or quotations. I love to write poetry and am working on lyric writing. The other thing I love is to take music and quotations to see what inspiration comes from them for which I will write about. Sometimes I write based on something that happened in a particular day or something that I have experienced. You never know what I will come up with but I try to put out where I am in life and the things that I learn as I go through it.
It is my hopes that you will travel this journey with me and share with others this journey as well. It is in communion that God made us to travel. Whether you are a person of faith or not, there can be much to learn from another person’s journey. So please, spread the word of this blog everywhere and share in my journey. My prayers go out to all in the world, always.
