How praying the Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary helped me learn to forgive

Deep down, isn’t this the grief we all share?

Spiritual Journey: Through the seasons of life

When it’s been winter for so long you’ve forgotten the smell of flowers, the color of grass and the whisper of a warm breeze … When earth has been frozen for so long, you’ve forgotten your aversion to the bitter cold and found your peace in the barren wasteland … When you’ve embraced the palette […]

Embracing the fullness of my messy, miraculous life

This is the road of authenticity – one day rocky, another smooth. It’s easy to love the sand squishing between our toes, hot sun warming our souls … storms are another story.
