Let Us Begin

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today.

Me: Alison, Ali, Momma

Anyone who has spent any amount of time with me knows that I have a tendency to be passionate about a lot of things, nothing more than my Catholic faith and love of the Lord.  Walking with Jesus has taken me places I never dreamed of from the Franciscan University of Steubenville where I majored in Theology and Catechetics to mission work in Jamaica, Thailand, China and Belize. (You can read about my adventures in Central America on my first venture into the blogisphere here.)

A lot has happened since my days as missionali.  I followed Johnny into the desert of Arizona where I have been working full-time as the RCIA director at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church for the past six years.  It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the conversion process for those seeking Jesus in His Church and to witness the healing and transformation of hearts through the sacraments.  I am also a Creighton Model FertilityCare Practitioner.  It is an exciting work to build the culture of life and offer couples groundbreaking alternatives to artificial reproductive technologies.

Second only to God is my fabulous vocation as a wife to the love-of-my-life and mother of my precious boys.  There is a lot going on these days but home is definitely and always where my heart is.  My family is my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  If things go the way it looks now, I could be the mother of more soon and very soon.  I have no doubt that the best is yet to come.

Jesus, I trust in You!
