A Look Inside My Search

In a search for answers to the woes in my life, I found God. The truth that lies in knowing God for myself, placed me on a quest for peace. While on this journey, I have discovered that there are others seeking this truth also and that I can help. I have a Doctor of Ministry degree from Catholic Theological Union, not to rise above anyone, but to better serve everyone. I am on a journey towards peace, speaking truth that opens people up to God.

Night Prayer

Hey God, thought I'd come over and hangout. How've You been? That good, huh? Well that's great. Me? Oh, I'm good. Especially since I've been hanging out with You. I really appreciate You letting me come over. I really feel good when I'm with You. Funny thing, we don't even have to be doing anything. Just being with You is fine with me. You too? Wow! Thanks.

Getting Ready for LENT

I'm so excited for LENT 2014. God has been doing such GREAT things in my life and I can't wait to join in Her work. Though I have been working with God, well truth be told, and against God, Lent gives me the opportunity to put some practices in place that say, "Yes God I'm on board; I'm willing to do your will." And these are the practices I chose. Sure the Church puts in place a few things to get us started: prayer, fasting/abstinence, and alms-giving. How those things get lived out is totally up to the individual.

This year, not only am I giving up something, I'm also taking something on. WOW!! Here goes!!!
For all of my Candy Crush players out there, I'm giving up Candy Crush; Pet Rescue; Solitaire Blitz; Words with Friends; AND Pepper Panic Saga. Now this may not be much to many of you but it is way too much for me. In recent months I have found myself playing these games entirely too much. So, out they go. Does that leave anything? Sure it does: Criminal Case, Pyramid Solitaire Saga and Matching with Friends. These 3 games have limited playing time so I think I'll be okay with the amount of time playing computer games.

What am I taking on you ask? Several things: a 6-week daily retreat (Your Spiritual Garden: Tending to the Presence of God by Pegge Bernecker); morning and evening prayer; and daily Mass (at least 2 times a week). In my free time I will be writing my book and practicing Spanish.

Aren't you excited with me? Of course you are!!

How are you planning to participate in God's transformation of you?
