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.

Prayers for timone #7

from A. Lyke
I know that our ministerial paths will intersect as we embark on new journeys. Stay blessed and continue to be a gift to the People of God. A."

I am definitely embarking on a new leg of my journey. As of 31 May 2015, I am no longer the Thursday Formation Director for the Augustus Tolton Pastoral Ministry Program at Catholic Theological Union. I have been feeling "some kinda way" about this. I started as a scholar in the Tolton Program in January 1996 and had been with it up til now. Wow!!!

I am now joining the faculty of the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago full-time and my world is so changing. I never thought that I would be back in the classroom after leaving St. Joseph High School (Westchester IL) in June 2004. Yet here I am. And I'm LOVING it.

To be true to what I preach to other ministers/teachers: BALANCE, I'm counting on my husband to make sure I re-cre-ate properly.

May all of us recognize ourselves as gifts to be shared with God's People.

Prayers for timone #6

from K. Lymore
"timone, May the God of our ancestors continue to order your steps in Him. May your comings and goings be blessed. Lord, give timone wisdom, grace and mercy to walk in her new assignment. Let timone decrease as You continue to increase in her. Amen.

Congratulations on your promotion."

"Order my steps in Your Word dear LORD. Lead me, guide me everyday."
I've been spending some time going back over my life to learn some things and to answer people's questions about this or that. I've found the journey quite enlightening. I discovered that God has been ordering my steps for quite some time. I wasn't aware of this in my early years, but lately I'm too aware of what God is asking. True truth: sometimes I want to not know. True truth #2: I'm so glad that I do know.

The grace and mercy that God has bestowed on me is not just for me. HOLLA!!!! It's for anyone who wants it.
