About Women in Formation: Consecrated Life is about being totally in love with God and wanting to devote one's entire life and as much time as possible, through prayer and reflection, to knowing God better and deepening that relationship of intimacy and love.  Strengthened by God's grace and with the support of the Holy Spirit, consecrated men and women, are then called to minister to others and help them draw closer to the heart of the good God they have come to know so well. The call to live consecrated life is a total gift from God, of which nobody feels worthy, but God gives each individual what they need to be happy in following His call. For me, community life together (daily prayer, Mass, meals, fun, service) are essential to remaining faithful to the call to joyfully live the Gospel and share it with the world.
Hobbies: I love to play the piano, although right now my theology program doesn't leave much time for that. I enjoy music in general, especially country music. I also like reading, writing, swimming, sewing, and cooking. I enjoy working and praying with young people on retreats and in various other settings. I also appreciate playing games with and good-naturedly teasing (and being teased by) my Notre Dame sisters!
