“Balancing Mountain Top Moments with Valley Living”
Have you ever experienced time with God you wish would never end? Chances are despite hope, life happens, and reality grabs our attention. Truth is, most of your life is “lived in the valley” – battling day to day struggles and possibly even anxiety, depression, or other stress related angst. The Lord gives us “mountain top” moments to remain focused on Him and always looking up.

“The Annunciation to Joseph: Overcoming Fear to Answer God’s Call”
In the Gospels, an angel appears to Mary, but also to St. Joseph, urging him to “do not be afraid.” We, too, are called to not be afraid and allow the Holy Spirit into our families and our homes.
