  • I was inspired to share this modge podge of a morning offering prayer that I pray. It has bits from Psalm 51, the first book of Kings, and a prayer to St. Thomas More that Pope Francis says daily (because a healthy dose of humor in our daily lives is very beneficial!). Thank you Lord for […]

  • From the moment you were conceived, I loved you! I didn’t know what to do, but for you, I would climb any mountain to give you a better life. I carried you in my belly for 9 months. My body changed, nights became restless and I felt every kick and somersault. It wasn’t easy but […]

  • The other day I was playing with our 3 month old baby. I was making him smile and he started to laugh. I started asking him about his day, what he was thinking, and how he felt. He started grunting at me in response. It was the best conversation I have ever had with him. […]

  • Simple living, especially relying on donations and Divine Providence to provide for what we need, makes you appreciate little things more. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, here are some of the little things that I have come to appreciate greatly while living at Maggie’s Place: Something coming in a donation that you just put on […]

  • A few weeks ago, I found myself driving downtown to the women’s homeless shelter to pick up a new mom and bring her back to The Zechariah House. Before I even reached the shelter and read the sign I knew which building it occupied because there were a number of women loitering on the sidewalk […]

  • Do whatever He tells you. Do whatever He tells you. These words are repeated in my head so often throughout the day. Mary, the Mother of Jesus, said these words to the servants at the wedding at Cana. These words are the reason I am here serving at Maggie’s Place. Do whatever He tells you. […]
