Why Am I still HERE??!!

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 […]

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 […]
