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.

Our 2 Year Anniversary: “God has been so good to us”

Two years ago we stood on the altar before God and proclaimed our vows to each other, “I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love and honor you all the days of my life.” Little did we know that so shortly after, those words would be immediately tested and we would come to understand the vast difference between speaking those words and living them out.

It’s Okay to Struggle

I was at adoration and praise and worship last night and one of the guys praying said something so refreshing. He said, “As Christians, I don’t think we hear these words enough: it’s okay. It’s okay to be right where you are. It’s okay to struggle. It’s okay to be confused, to feel lost at times. ITS OKAY!”

A Prayer for Your Christmas

Advent is often associated with joy, as we await the birth of Our Lord and Savior, but as joy-filled as this season is, it also falls at the end of the year. That means some of us may feel like we are just limping towards Christmas with whatever little bit of energy we have left after a long year of ups and downs.

Pain, Blessings and a Heart Full of Gratitude

The other night during my Holy Hour, I was reflecting on my life over the past 6 months and I felt God calling me to really look at everything I am grateful for. Many times, unfortunately, our gratitude to God is conditional, based on how great life is going for us, but the true test of gratitude is when we can practice it even in the moments when it’s hardest to feel and see.

Arise from Darkness

For the past 6 months I feel like I have been struggling to “arise” out of my own darkness. This book reminded me of the most important thing, something I had slowly lost sight of in my pain: everything we go through in this life is about our journey towards Heaven.

Encountering Thomas

There have been many times in adoration where random strangers have embraced me, spoken truths to me and revealed God’s love to me. One encounter that is forever imprinted on my heart is meeting Thomas during my time in adoration.

Comforting the Afflicted

Have you ever tried to open up to someone about a hardship going on in your life, hoping to find support or be comforted and instead you walked away feeling even more alone and frustrated than when the conversation started? One thing I have learned through observing...
