Being Fully Alive #M4MVoices

When my mind is free from worry, I find myself thinking about the future with great hope. There’s an abundant peace that comes from knowing that there’s a God who has the perfect plan and knows exactly what He wants for you. God continuously takes care of us and he meets us where we’re at.

My Journey with an Eating Disorder (Pt.2)

Slowly, but all in His time, God began to heal and repair the breaks inside that my illness thrived on. Slowly, but all in His time, God spoke to me through scripture: "You have stayed long enough at this mountain” Deuteronomy 1:6. I know now that the straight line without breaks or edges is not authentic at all. It is destructive and not real. I’ve learned that those breaks and trying times we face are unbelievably necessary.

My Journey with an Eating Disorder (Pt.1)

I used to think my path would be narrow and smooth, with little waves, and not so many deep stumbles. I used to think of myself as someone who could conquer anything on my own, especially when it came to school, grades, and well-being.

Modesty: Your Body is a Temple (Pt 2)
. Brides wear white as a symbol of purity and innocence. Though the symbolism may have become forgotten today, a bride dressed in a beautiful white gown rejoices when her bridegroom finally sees her. She looks forward to wearing this special dress. What if we considered modesty in a similar way? So often it can feel like a burden, instead of something we can offer to God with a joyful heart. It took me a long time to see it that way because I was worrying about myself and others’ opinions, rather than turning it into an act of love. It is a sign and an expression, yet in this case it is more than this because it also guards the purity it represents. Turning modesty into an expression of my heart has helped with my worries of it being self-righteous, because the focus is on the reality within.

I am More than #TransformationTuesday

I wanted to use a hashtag for people to look at me – it’s superficial. I don’t mean that in a bad way at all, appreciating the difference in my physical appearance is important. I’m happy about my metamorphosis in the last 6 years, and I think it should be celebrated! But just noticing the physical changes is literally just skimming the surface; my beauty runs so much deeper than my skin.

Dressing Up for God

Do you think the way we dress for Church matters? Does God really care about how much effort you put into picking out your outfit for Sunday? Is it best to just fit in and follow the crowd to determine what is Church appropriate? I struggled with these questions, and many more, when I first started attending Church, and perhaps some of you also have these questions in mind. Here is how I decided what I should wear to Sunday Mass.
