  • Moving from rural northern New York to my new suburban surroundings in Arizona took me a couple of months to get acclimated to the many changes I encountered, some of which I hadn’t fully anticipated. Slowly, I conquered one small hurdle after another – I got used to being three hours behind my family and […]

  • To the outside world, I look completely normal, mentally stable and healthy. But inside there is a gnawing desire; it eats at me day and night, controlling my every thought. It’s a monster that takes control more often than not. I wake up at the kitchen table, paper strewn everywhere, dull scissors next to my […]

  • I distinctly recall a moment at Maggie’s Place when I said to a staff member, “tell me the secret of Maggie’s Place.” The executive director and co-founder at the time responded with a single word, “love.” To a certain extent, one could say the words heart and love are interdependent:  to have either, both must […]

  • I read a story a few months ago (here) that has really struck a strong chord with me.  It is basically about a girl who helps out her neighbor in a pinch.  Her neighbor is going through drug rehab, has a toddler, and was in a dark place in life.  I mean, really, Godlessly dark. […]

  • Our volunteers and donors are fantastic. Generosity truly does keep our doors open and our house afloat. Sometimes there is a desperate need and Divine Providence provides suddenly in the last minute. Other times, a seemingly simple gift makes all the difference. Things like putting documents in a file in chronological order or decorating a […]
