Who am I?

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Here's a little bit about me:
  • First and most importantly, I am a Roman Catholic.  
  • I am a sophomore at a Catholic college; my 3 majors are Theology, Catechetics, and Communications with a concentration in multimedia.
  • I have a wonderful mom and dad, an amazing older brother and sister, 2 really cool in-laws, and 12 crazy, fun, exciting nieces and nephews (one is yet to be born!!!).
  • Some of my hobbies are reading, cooking, knitting, scrapbooking, and editing pictures that I've taken.

Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass... It's about learning how to dance in the rain
"Here is our King, here is our Love, here is our God who's come to bring us back to Him"
Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go
"It's time to let go and feel the light"
Love speaks in silence
