Hello is anyone out there?

by Alumni Posts November 5, 2012

Why Am I still HERE??!!

by Alumni Posts October 15, 2012

In a previous post, I briefly wrote about moving forward. Shortly after posting, I realized that I think, talk and write about this subject quite a bit. It must be pretty important to me, huh? Still, I find myself stuck in the same spot in a few areas of my life and I’m asking, “Why […]

Metanoia

by Deanna October 10, 2012

I was blessed with the opportunity to be able to go on a retreat this past weekend with Campus Ministry. I can’t say too much because that would spoil it for any future retreat-goers. But the moral of the story is I had such a great time! The location was absolutely beautiful and we were […]

Each new day is an opportunity to be better than you were the day before. With a sunrise, comes the chance to forgive and release yourself from the past and make a decision to move forward. Too often, we look back and get caught up in the what-ifs. But, if we would just continue to […]

What do you think about when the wedding subject gets brought up? Well, I think about love, family and faith. Saturday, my cousin Amber got married in Pocahontas, Illinois, at a small country winery. I have only been to a handful of weddings that I remember, and now that I am getting older and to […]

Said Your Prayers Today?

by Alumni Posts May 7, 2012

Today, I was listening to the radio and heard that it is the National Day of Prayer. I find myself thinking of when to find time to pray and concentrate on God alone. But when would I not be distracted? I have an IEP to write, a couple of journal articles to read and write […]

I have been praying lately about the types of changes that I need to make and asking for God’s direction as to what I need to do in my life. The one thing that remains steadfast in His direction is my continues studies at Fontbonne. I am blessed with being a Pathways student which has […]

brotherly, sisterly honor

by Alumni Posts April 24, 2012

The blessing of confirmation is a special time in the Catholic faith. My little brother and sister got confirmed Sunday and asked my older and Danielle and me to be their sponsors. I can’t describe the feeling it was being asked to do something like this. It was a true blessing. We had a lot […]

Remember playing tag as a kid? It seems like as adults, we still are playing “tag” but in the real world. I know that I play so many roles in life. TAG- I’m a mom making all the treats for the youth group this week. TAG- I am the domestic goddess that did the laundry, […]

Something New

by Alumni Posts April 12, 2012

I’m taking a world religion class this semester, and we are required to go to a different type of religion outside of what we were raised in. I decided to go and see what the Scientology building on Delmar was all about. I brought my best friend with me, because naturally, I was a little […]
