Joy with Jesus

Worry can significantly impact our quiet and prayer time with Jesus. We need to let these worries and distractions float away as we focus on Jesus. Being with Jesus and listening to His life-giving words through Scripture can allow us to put our minds at peace. Jesus came to bring love, joy and peace. Distractions and needless worry during our prayer get in the way of our joy with Jesus!

Build on Your Childhood Faith

My childhood was where I was grounded in Jesus Christ. Family and friends lived a life of faith in our local Catholic parish. I attended Catholic School, received the Sacraments, and grew in faith. Our faith journey is good to remember and cherish. It is the foundation of our adult faith. I lean on my childhood faith so I can continue to grow in Jesus Christ.

Jesus Comes To Us In Community

Prayer is not only a solitary activity we do with God. We do need personal time with Jesus. I do this each morning in quiet prayer and reflection on the Gospels and Holy Scripture. However, we also need to meet and pray with others. We must share our experiences, our pain, our sins and celebrate our forgiveness. We must be a community by praying with others. Even prayer and reflection time with one person is a community. Jesus said where two or more are gathered in my name – I am present.

Let Jesus Change Your Life Into One Of Beauty

God’s Grace is amazing!! I cannot even imagine how my life would be without God’s everlasting compassion and presence. When I try to do it on my own, I am left empty and unsure. When I turn to Jesus in prayer, I find comfort and hope. Jesus and His Graces are my entire life now. I am lost when I stray. He always finds me and welcomes me back. I am so thankful and in awe at how He has changed my entire life into something of beauty.

Let Others Bring You to Jesus

So many individuals have helped me along my journey to my life with Jesus. It started with the love and examples of my parents. My family was also so important to my growth. Spirtual directors and mentors helped me learn and encouraged me go deep into my relationship with Jesus. All along the way, God has brought incredible people into my life! I am so grateful for the blessings!
