There are two events that I can confidently say have changed my life completely, unexpectedly, and most wonderfully.

For the last ten years, when God’s plan for my vocation did not make sense, the temptation was to give up hope. Yet, through His love and mercy, He has gifted me with the constant guiding light of knowing He made me for Himself exclusively. So no matter how dark the uncertainty was on the […]
