Chosen: A Confirmation Program Worth Checking Out


As a Confirmation catechist and program leader, I am ALWAYS looking for great resources. With our Confirmation Boot Camp program, we have never found anything that works completely and totally. We have a program we use, sort of, but it comes down to a team approach of tapping into resources, pulling together what this year’s […]

My Favorite Novena


I love novenas. They give me a chance to feel like I’m actually doing the work of prayer, as opposed to just dashing off a quick request and sending it heavenward. They remind me, over the course of the nine days of prayer, of the discipline and the focus that I can give as a gift […]

Sometimes, You Just Have to Be Still


I’m not good at being still. I’m not good at trusting God. It’s an ongoing lesson. There’s an art to stillness, and this weekend, I realized that maybe I’m getting better. Not good, but better. See you at Integrated Catholic Life for more.
