This Wednesday is the Feast of the Assumption of Mary where we honor our Mother being brought up into heaven. It’s a Holy Day of Obligation where just like Sunday we are required to go to mass. This post is serving as two things: 1) a reminder to go to mass sometime this Wednesday and…Read More
As I posted on Instagram last week, my sister just got married!
Easily the happiest day of my life… and what made it so particularly amazing were the people who came together and were a part of the celebration.
So, I saw Momma Mia this weekend and as I expected it was absolutely phenomenal… Sadly, this is not a post about Momma Mia. This is about how I felt after watching it.

I’ve written out the passage below: “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who…Read More
Happy feast day everyone! This blog idea came to me as I read the annunciation story and Luke 1:38 has been what I continuously go back to whenever I have absolutely no clue what I am doing. I go back to it when I’m discouraged, uninspired, confused, frustrated, lost or afraid because Mary’s complete trust…Read More
