Hey guys, I wanted to start out by apologizing for not posting on Friday and then being radio silent about it. I was really really excited about my Friday Feature and I couldn’t wait to share her story but then as my week started to unfold it became more and more evident that I couldn’t do it all.

Creating an Experience of Truth

Beauty will save the world

This is a phrase we hear quite often and yet it is so hard to actually understand what it means, and more importantly, know how to foster this beauty. I’ve recently discovered this amazing community called Catholic Creatives. It’s this massive group of young Catholic artists, musicians, photographer, videographers, graphic designers, and so much more who are working to radically change the way in which our church is currently being perceived.

Alright here is the deal sisters… we as women have a problem in our culture today and it’s up to us to fix it. I have had endless conversations with girls who are “talking” to a boy who they really like, and are maybe even hooking up with them, and there is this thing where they know he probably, maybe, likes them and they like him and so even though they are in this constant state of uncertainty, and are probably being taken advantage of, they still don’t want to stop talking to him or move on because, “what if?”

How to Bring a Little Sunshine into Every Rainy Day

Rainy days are a rarity in southern California and because of that, it has grown to be one of my favorite kinds of days.

Having the Audacity to Dream

“Just Live in the Glory”

Migi Fabara Martinez… there are no words in the English language to describe this woman. She’s got this joy that is infectious and her heart makes you feel at home immediately, even if you’ve just met her. She is truly a gift and a beloved daughter and as I sit to write this post I’m in awe of her words and the story of her faith.
