Stop Hiding Behind Your Fear

January 18, 2022

For five months now, I have needed to pick up a bundle of clothing from the cleaners. That’s right, almost half a year ago, I dropped off some dresses for cleaning and then forgot about them for two months. When I finally remembered, I avoided picking them up. I told myself that I was just […]

Count on Christ in You to Bring the Change

January 4, 2022

This is the time when we all start to think about what we wish we hadn’t eaten over the holidays and other ways we’d like to improve ourselves. Two currents of thought run through our minds. One stream bubbles with excitement over a new challenge. But discouragement flows in the other one, because try as […]

Forks Up or Forks Down?

December 28, 2021

Warning: Hot Button Topic Ahead.  When loading utensils into the dishwasher, do you place them handle side down or handle side up?  Call me crazy, but I just realized why my father would load the dishwasher so that all of the utensils would be handle side down. With the handle side down, the part of […]

This Christmas, Live Simply

December 21, 2021

The best way to spend the final week before Christmas is making a solo 1,370 mile drive with two dogs in the backseat.

Reality Frees Us From Ourselves

December 14, 2021

It’s Advent. My favorite time of year. Every morning in December, I get to wake up before the entire house and pray by a Christmas tree. It’s glorious. For four weeks, I get to meditate on the mystery of God becoming man, and I love it. I love it because I love God, I love […]

Do You Want Your Life To Change?

December 7, 2021

Do you want your life to change? This was the question that Dynamic Catholic Founder, Matthew Kelly, posed to a packed church parish hall ten years ago. I can’t speak for the other attendees’ responses at the retreat that day, but I can share mine. It was a solid yes. The solution Kelly offered wasn’t […]

Ordering Your Priorities

November 16, 2021

What are the final thoughts that usually run through your mind when you try to fall asleep? Do you review a litany of unaccomplished tasks, mentally moving them onto tomorrow’s list? Are you thinking with dread of all that’s going to be required of you tomorrow? Do you feel regret over the way you have […]

What if He Is Already Pleased With You?

November 9, 2021

Above my bed hangs a couple of one hundred-year-old pictures: one of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the other of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I love them. I love that they hung on someone’s wall going back to the early 1900s. I love how they remind me that the Catholic Church spans across […]

Remember You Must Die

November 2, 2021

I like to think about my death. How’s that for an opening line? I am not a morbid person. I am not depressed, nor do I want to die. I just know that I will. And so I think about it; the Requiem Mass, followed by a street taco and margarita celebration. I’m even thinking […]

Seek Wisdom

October 12, 2021

I just walked from my bedroom, down the stairs, and into my living room to begin writing this blog post, and do you know what I did the entire time? I scrolled through Instagram while walking. Have you ever done that? Or have you ever started scrolling on your phone only to realize that forty-five […]
