@backinfebruary_ 🤰❣️👶
Motherhood has been my most fulfilling endeavor. In every way possible, it transformed me into a better human being and cultivated a selflessness that was long overdue. I was not one of those day-dreamers for having children and I wasn’t sure what kind of mother I would be, but when it happened, I felt like I was simply made for it. Every evening, I peak (or crawl) into my daughter’s crib, and I gently trace the profile of her nose. Because of my journey, I often imagine what my life would look like without her and each time I do, the imagining feels painful and I’m flooded with gratitude for her rising belly, her wild curly red hair, and her warm existence.

And yes, this is my belly five days before I gave birth. Not pictured: my bathing suit swallowed up by that BUMP 🤰🏼

Kickstands up! Archbishop @thomaswenski leads the way!

Faithful Catholics, at any rate, are always good advertisements for religion. They uphold and exhibit the “bright side” of devotion and preach the lesson of the joyful service of God. Where there is a great deal of faith, there will be always a great deal of laughter.

❄️Christmas Project🎄
With @vivyanhamo & @the.daily.catholic
Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy🍂
If not me and you to help, then who?
We can’t always ask for miracles, we can be someone’s miracle. Since I’ve worked in a homeless shelter, I learned so much from those poor people. They’re humble, kind, have unconditional faith in God, speak the truth, and I was stunned when all of them admitted that it was their fault they ended up homeless.
Some of them just wanted someone to talk to. To tell them that they’re getting a job, an apartment, or a car.
They want someone to tell them, you did it, God is proud of you. Some of them really got a job and a place to live in.
They promised me that I’ll see them when I come back again. But this time I’ll see them as volunteers helping to motivate others to never give up and push themselves to live a better life.
@the.daily.catholic came up with this perfect project and we are both going to start to get some stuff that they need the most.
We will make sure not to just throw food and clothes in their faces as like we are doing them a favor. Absolutely not, you can’t look down at others or feel the pride of what you’re doing. Work of mercy does not work like that.
Plus we will be adding different projects too. Like visiting sick kids in hospitals, abandoned elderly, and so on.
I don’t want Jesus to tell me, you had plenty of time to do many things but you wasted it on useless stuff. Just saying that gives me chills and a broken heart. We are not trees, let’s move our feet and let God to bless our footsteps🍂
Let the work of mercy begin🍂

Today I attended for the first time an event of how to defend the faith and Jesus’ relevance in today’s world @stjosephchaldeanchurch
Father Bryan had an excellent talk about how to defend the faith and Jesus’ relevance.
I was in awe the whole entire hour father Bryan gave evidence, proves, & tiny details that even as a non believer couldn’t question them after hearing him.
He didn’t make it complicated, he broke the answer into small details that you won’t want to miss.
I thought I knew how to defend the faith and had it all in control. After today, I realize, I knew nothing about how to defend the faith. Telling people they will go to Hell and call them names won’t let them to come to faith. Yes, say the truth, but say it wisely. Trying to win a debate won’t make the non-believer or different come to Jesus. Father Bryan also asked us three questions to think about before we left. And I will ask you those 3 questions to think about…
1) How do I spend my time each week with Jesus? Do I just go to Mass and Adoration and pray before bed and call it for the day? Do I say I went to Mass and I’m good? We must put Jesus as the center of our lives and not just on Sundays.
2) How did I spend my money the last 30 days? Do I just care about the brand name and the way I look? Do I spend money on things I want mostly? Do I worship money more than Jesus?
3) Who are my friends? Do I just have friends who just call me to hang out or to drag me to church?
Do I have friends who judge me fairly and make me aware of me actions? Do I have friends who love Jesus too and love to talk about Him? I wanted to share a little bit of what I learned today @war_room_sjhm and if you live in Michigan I highly recommend that you attend. Next Thursday it will be in a different Catholic Church. It’s only one hour, but that one hour will fill your soul with God’s words. Your soul is tired and you need to feed your soul just like you need to feed your body to stay strong and to do your tasks.

“It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. Bring love into your home, for this is where our love for each other must start.” -St. Mother Teresa
Most of us would somewhat sheepishly agree that our acquaintances, colleagues, and neighbors see our best self, while we let everything hang loose in our homes. Would we dare pick fights, argue, ignore, shame, or manipulate those far away? Probably not. We find it easier to love the people who don’t know us well, and vice versa, but Mother Teresa suggests that love isn’t fully realized until it involves the hard work of accepting the faults and failures of those closest to us. In order for love to truly be love, it must involve sacrifice and selflessness. We must offer the best of ourselves to our families.
