Entering the Desert

Like many, my heart has been feeling very heavy lately. I have been feeling the weight of all this isolating and uncertainty. With everything going on in the world, it feels like we have entered the dry, hot, seemingly unending desert with Jesus this Lent. 

Shame & the Power of God’s Mercy

God’s mercy is greater than our shame. There are many days when I struggle to wrap my mind around the immeasurable, unfathomable ocean of God’s mercy. I think shame (along with unforgiveness) is one of the greatest barriers to us being able to receive and fully encounter the mercy God longs to give us.

Humble Hearts

“What Jesus doesn’t heal in me, I pray He uses to humble me.” This was the prayer that stirred in my heart the other day while I was sitting in adoration. It’s true what they say, be careful what you pray for. I feel like I have been getting humbled frequently as I’ve been reflecting on one of the major wounds of my heart: the need to be perceived well.

The Joy of a Baby Boy

Just reflecting on what took place on Christmas Day is hard to wrap my mind around sometimes. The son of God became a little baby-perfectly divine, perfectly human. A simple woman from Nazareth became Mother to God.

Living a Life that Matters

It is a difficult balance to be living in this world and still trying to prepare ourselves for the next. There are things we need to do here and invest ourselves in, and yet at the same time, we can’t lose our perspective of what lies beyond.

Waiting on the Lord

It’s so easy to feel like you’re just waiting on your own some days, as if you’re on an island all by yourself, when in reality we are being held tightly by our Father who is ever present with us. Sometimes we just need to be reminded that “God is in the waiting.” 

Anti-Fragile Faith

I was listening to a talk the other day by Fr. Mike Schmitz called “Anti-Fragile Faith.” It was hands down one of the best talks I have ever listened to. It inspired me. It made me cry. And it gave me a humbling reality check and a good ol kick in the butt.

Getting Unstuck-Healing from Past Pain

As a therapist and a human being, I’ve always struggled with knowing what the balance looks like between looking back to the past to understand ourselves and our hurts, and living in the present moment. It’s probably one of the most difficult balances to navigate in the healing journey.

Lenten Healing

The whole Lenten season is about interior transformation and growing in holiness, which starts with reflecting on Christ’s deep love and sacrifice for us. So I think it’s important to reflect on where we are before Jesus, especially as Lent draws to an end.

From Fear to Love

As I have been reflecting on the role that fear has played in my life, I’ve realized that there really hasn’t been much that I haven’t feared throughout my life.  Every fear outlined in this book I have seen played out in my life. I do my best to face my fears, to work through them and offer them to God, but there are still so many days when I feel afraid of life.
