I don’t think this summer could have flown by any faster! I got engaged and this, of course, led to lots of celebrations. Fatigue aside, its been an incredibly happy season and Zaid and I are both so excited for what the future holds. Don’t we look excited? But all joking aside, it really has … Continue reading

Why I am in North Dakota this summer
Some have asked why I am in the middle of North Dakota this summer. And for those just tuning in, well, I am in North Dakota this summer! I thought it might be easier for both my own reflection and because it probably won’t be feasible for me to get to a phone/some sort of … Continue reading
Oh ye of little faith: My life lately
I’ve learned a lot from St. Peter this past year. He was a simple fisherman who God used to do great things. He was grossly under-qualified for the job Jesus gave him and really struggled with trust and abandonment. I’ve come back to accounts of Peter grasping and falling short in the Gospels so many … Continue reading
I think John Bunyan would have something swell to say about my post today…not that I’ve read his work on the Pilgrim’s Progress. I’ve been falling into all sorts of summer laziness. My laundry has not been done in weeks nor have I vacuumed my apartment. I haven’t written something publishable (as this blog would … Continue reading
No matter how far I travel, no matter what jobs I change. No matter who I am with at the time, which friendships shift and which become even more rooted, it is the Lord, my God who greets me at the airport to welcome me home. I think this is what He is trying to … Continue reading
I spent some time at my local farmers’ market yesterday. It’s always such a great experience with so many opportunities to learn! There are bakers, artists, and lots of farmers selling their beautiful organic produce–not to mention the best deep-fried bananas you’ll ever try! I came across this quote the other day and it really … Continue reading
An UNforgettable Adventure
A couple of weeks ago my friend Zoë and I had the amazing opportunity to travel to New York City and attend the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. The Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues is held every May and is a chance for Indigenous Peoples around the world to gather, share their stories, … Continue reading
What are you reading this summer?
One of my most favorite things in the world is to curl up by the window with a good book and a pot of strong tea. The minute I finished exams this year, I dived into the long list of leisure reads I started. The school year doesn’t leave much time for books about entrepreneurship … Continue reading
Dreaming of summer..
Finals are upon us. My first exam is tomorrow morning and so naturally I am drowning in economic models and theories this evening! Bleh. And I can’t focus because I’m dreaming of the summer which, for me at least, will begin in two short weeks! So I figured I’d let myself make a classic summer … Continue reading
Can you tell?
We must love God back, passionately! Through the other. We must love our neighbor, not only as ourselves but with the heart of God. Christ said to his disciples, “By this shall men know that you are my disciples, that you love one another as I have loved you.” To love with the heart of … Continue reading
The E word
I remember when I applied to go on Catholic Christian Outreach’s missions trip this past summer, we were asked what we thought of the word “evangelize.” It’s a scary word that I desired to stay far from. It conjures up images of men on podiums in the middle of the street harassing passersby. This past … Continue reading
I have been home for just over a week now and it has been so nice to reconnect with family and friends before heading out East once again. The many visits I have made over these last few days have meant that I’ve had many opportunities to share how I have grown this summer on … Continue reading
