Multiple years of longing for significant growth in the areas of career and family balance, desires for simplifying my life, and craving more space for silence positioned me to engage with core as my one little word for 2015. I had considered play as my word for the year, thinking about being more playful, a […]

Core 2015: Then//Now

For the first time, in 2014, I chose a word in Spanish for my word for the year.

Embrace 2011: Then//Now

Advent 2020: Resources to Shape My Journey

Over the years my appreciation for the beauty of the liturgical year has increased along with my understanding. This weekend I was contemplating how as we transition from the end of one liturgical year to the beginning of another we go from recognizing Christ as our king to focusing on Mary’s fiat.
