“Let us reflect your image
and walk through life entirely like you;
strong and noble, simple and kind,
spreading love and peace and joy.
In us go through our times
and make them ready for Christ.”
Welcome to the place of my occasional musings! I am a recently married young woman, trying to see God in everything, including the busyness of my daily life. I work at John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego. On an ordinary day, you are likely to find me praying, studying, talking to the love of my life, reading, singing, cooking, and cleaning. On fewer occasions you might find me listening to music, taking pictures, watching movies, traveling, and perhaps even just soaking in the sunshine. I am trying to learn from my mistakes, grow closer to God, and achieve the happy balance of sanctity.
“The only ones who are truly beautiful are those who look beautiful when they come in out of the rain. That kind of beauty comes from the inside out, not from the outside in. It is the product of virtue, not rouge; it is not skin-deep, but soul-deep.”
– Archbishop Fulton Sheen
