Some Recent Musings Bringing Life to Me

Over the past months, these thoughts are working their way into my heart and experiences as key truths for the journey ahead…may they awaken life within your own. I also welcome the chance to discuss further with you — reach out to connect.

The truth that you are fully loved and that without end, burns within our hearts like a fire. To make this known to you in the most profound and intimate way is one of the passions of the Holy Spirit…and she will never stop. I want every blind spot in me consumed by this fire…
