My apologies for the silence the last couple of months! Life has been so full of fun adventures so I figured I would give a quick update as to a couple of the recent highlights!
Last year after our Steubenville and Peru mission trip I was feeling this burning in my heart to look into adopting a teenager. I tried to ignore it as it is not a typical thing for a single 28-year-old to do, but the burning just grew and grew. I finally started the process about a year ago and am currently in some of the final stages! I will do a full blog post on this when things are official but for now, I appreciate any and
all prayers I can get so that God’s Will will be known to me! The last couple of months have been super exciting with this becoming a reality!
I have had two very important weddings in the last month: my sister Nikki, and one of my best friends, Choua. I can’t tell you how much fun I had celebrating these two amazing
human beings and I can’t thank God enough for having them in my life!
At the end of July, we brought two bus-loads of students to the Steubenville conference at the University of St. Thomas. Words can’t describe how fruitful and amazing this experience was. Coming back, our weekly youth group has been growing at an incredible rate! Please keep all of these amazing young people in your prayers! The future of our Church is incredibly bright.
After the overwhelming response from the book “By His Mercy,” I felt God calling me to publish a second book with stories of God’s mercy. This book was officially published this past week and will be available for purchase in the next week or two!
Finally, I am currently packing for a pilgrimage to France and England. I am going to go explore the Catholic sites of these two countries with young adults from all around the world and I could not be more excited! Please pray for a safe and fruitful trip and I will give updates when I get back!
God bless you all,
