Just Show Up – My Time in Prison

By | 2018-11-18T20:39:22+00:00 November 18th, 2018|Blog|

In full disclosure, because I have been so preoccupied with my father's heath, my own immediate family's health issues, and the survivor's I'm seeing in the ministry, I was not exactly excited to be leaving it all to go spend three days in prison. Well, I mean, who wants to go to prison? ;) As [...]

Just Show Up – Precious Life

By | 2018-10-02T08:49:24+00:00 October 2nd, 2018|Blog|

I know I should be commenting on the Kavanaugh situation (and I have been watching and keeping up with it) but, once again, LIFE has thrown something my way that is simply more important. Last week my father has been diagnosed with Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer. We are still waiting on the pathology [...]

Just Show Up – Survivor of Child Abuse by a Catholic Priest Shares

By | 2018-08-21T12:48:35+00:00 August 21st, 2018|Blog|

This past week has been very difficult for me in regards to the magnitude of revelation of abuse by priests in Philadelphia. As you all know, I am a Catholic, and I love my faith. Some might even consider me 'charismatic' (and I think many who aren't Catholic are quite surprised that I know and [...]

Just Show Up – Breakup with Fear

By | 2018-08-13T13:08:55+00:00 August 13th, 2018|Blog|

I woke up this morning, from a restless sleep, having the oddest feeling I am falling short. From what, you might ask. And that I can't answer. Later, in the car, I heard this new song by Francesca Battistelli "The Breakup Song" and fell in love with the tune and the words. https://youtu.be/H0wpP5o7xpI Little [...]

GUEST POST – Preventing Child Abuse in the US

By | 2018-08-06T14:35:30+00:00 August 8th, 2018|Blog|

Occasionally I'll allow a guest post such as this to come in as I see the need to have the people in the right positions to help with the abuse epidemic in this country. You never know, I might have a reader who is asking themselves "What do I want to do with my life?" [...]

Just Show Up – Today I am …. the 1 or 99?

By | 2018-08-06T14:14:17+00:00 August 6th, 2018|Blog|

It is a shame and embarrassment to see that it has been over a month since I have written a post. If you are reading this then thank you, as you are probably one of the few still following! ;) Ha, listen to me, being self-deprevating. In the name of Jesus, I renounce this spirit [...]

Just Show Up – PTSD…it is more prevalent than you realize

By | 2018-06-22T11:36:47+00:00 June 22nd, 2018|Blog|

Before we end June I didn't want to go completely silent. I am slowly getting my 'groove' back... we are STILL not back in our home from Hurricane Harvey so it has taken its toll on me emotionally and my creative bug just isn't ignited. But, this, too, is a part of PTSD...which is why [...]

God has been working! I am currently at a Association of Fundraising Professionals conference in New Orleans where I have been learning more about treating our donors well! Which is a no brainer, of course, but I am just trying to figure out how to get our donations to match the growth that we are [...]
