I’ve never really been one to protest or feel comfortable marching before. Growing up in Southern California there was such a stigma of disagreeing with or offending someone so you just never talked about politics or beliefs at all. I’d mention maybe being pro-life and everyone would attack me for hating women and being ignorant … Continue reading I am a Pro-Life Feminist
New Year’s Resolutions – pretty sure I gave up on those a while ago. I tried out the whole gym thing. I was good for about 2 months. I tried out no gossip. Let’s be real, as much as I wanted to, I totally failed. I tried the “be more confident” thing. Well, let’s just … Continue reading A New Years Resolution You’ll Want to Stick With
Christmas break is here and with that comes being home with family and a total shift in routine. Coming home from college for long breaks like Christmas is always weird. You’re home for three weeks after living in a totally different world for 6 months ...
“God knows the enemy is quieted when your loving is loud” I’m reading this book called Wild and Free (every female needs to read this book) about the freedom we as women have in Christ, and how we’ve let the world silence our freedom. It’s one of the most liberating books because it has empowered … Continue reading Learning How to Love Loud
This weekend was one of my favorite weekends of college so far - why? Because I got to spend it with 80 other women from CUA who love Jesus and desire to grow in relationship with each other… on the picturesque shore of Maryland.
Hey guys, I wanted to start out by apologizing for not posting on Friday and then being radio silent about it. I was really really excited about my Friday Feature and I couldn’t wait to share her story but then as my week started to unfold it became more and more evident that I couldn’t do it all.
Beauty will save the world This is a phrase we hear quite often and yet it is so hard to actually understand what it means, and more importantly, know how to foster this beauty. I’ve recently discovered this amazing community called Catholic Creatives. It’s this massive group of young Catholic artists, musicians, photographer, videographers, graphic designers, and so much more who are working to radically change the way in which our church is currently being perceived.
Pope Saint John Paul II, known for taking down communism, theology of the body, many papal encyclicals and so so much more, has radically changed the world and, while all those things are absolutely amazing, I don’t think that is how he did it.
Alright here is the deal sisters… we as women have a problem in our culture today and it’s up to us to fix it. I have had endless conversations with girls who are “talking” to a boy who they really like, and are maybe even hooking up with them, and there is this thing where they know he probably, maybe, likes them and they like him and so even though they are in this constant state of uncertainty, and are probably being taken advantage of, they still don’t want to stop talking to him or move on because, “what if?”
Confession: I have been really struggling in my prayer life recently, especially when it comes to in reading Sacred Scripture. I’ve been wanting to do a Monday reflection for a long time about the importance of knowing the gospel as Catholics and how fulfilling it is and how much it has changed my life, and … Continue reading What are We Missing?
