How I Found God Part 4

My dear reader! This is the last installment of my personal conversion story. Even now, I feel my patron saint, St. Joan, is pricking my mind and pushing me to write. Such is her persistent attitude.   This will be a long one. Full of ups and downs. Even now, I am humbled to have SaintContinue reading “How I Found God Part 4”

Hearing God’s Call

Have you ever wondered what God is calling you to do with your life? I ponder that question for the longest time, and I believe He might have thrown a brick at me to wake me up.   I attend Saturday night Mass. I prefer it, to be honest. It’s not because I get to sleepContinue reading “Hearing God’s Call”

Anxiety: A Personal Reflection

The cover image is St. Dymphna, the patron saint of those struggling with depression and anxiety. Last post, I spoke about anxiety, and yet, I feel my heart is still troubled.

Anxiety and the Christian Response

Anxiety is a part of the human condition.   So what is the response to this primary human response and emotion? We’re all human. We all have fears and concerns down the road.  I think that’s part of the human condition, to be honest.  We want to know what is coming down.  One reason could beContinue reading “Anxiety and the Christian Response”
