SEEK 2013 - Last Week to Register

This is an awesome video that the FOCUS missionaries in Boston created. 
It's a promotion video for SEEK13: 

I directed and edited this music video promo made to encourage students at Boston schools to attend the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) 2013 National Conference "SEEK" in Orlando, Florida.
• Starring Levi Rash, Justin Petrisek and Emily Cook, with appearances by the FOCUS teams at BU, MIT and Harvard.
• Shot on Canon 7D, edited with Avid Media Composer 6.

"SEEK is a gathering of college students on a journey.  It’s a place where we can come together to take on some of life’s BIGGER questions and, like guides along the way, learn from one another where wisdom and experience lead.  Life is meant to be lived and in order to live it to the fullest, we need to heed the wisdom that calls us to ‘ask, seek and knock’ to discover who we are, where we’re going and what motivates us.
Presented by FOCUS, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students, SEEK 2013 is an adventurous five-day event in Orlando from January 2nd – 6th.  With unexpected twists and turns, you will be challenged, inspired and left wanting more.
Don’t go it alone, let’s seek together."  
Check it out!  This is the last week to register:

Do you have flannel bedding or pajamas? 
I've had flannel bedding before and it sure does make a difference.

Trust in the Lord

Decisions Decisions

When I am going through a tough decision in my life, I tend to panic! 
Especially when it is a tough decision and I am not sure which way to go. 
I feel like I have hit a fork in the road and I'm being asked to choose a path. 

And then it hits me....I'm not the one in charge. 
God has a plan for me and it is way better than 
anything I could possibly come up with myself. 

It is key when making a decision to pray. 
I enjoy sitting before our Lord in the blessed sacrament.
I also enjoy reading scripture. 
These are two bible verses that I really enjoy: 

I consider the sufferings
of this present time 
are not worth comparing 
with the glory 
that is to be revealed to us. 
{Romans 8:18} 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and do not rely on your own insight. 
In all your ways acknowledge him
and he will make straight your paths. 
{Proverbs 3:5-6}

I have to make a huge decision tomorrow, so I will be spending my day in prayer. 
What do you do when faced with a difficult decision?

God Bless,

Music Monday

Hello Bloggers, 

I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday. 

Tonight, I wanted to leave you with some lovely music by Mumford and Sons and Phillip Phillips.
I enjoy both of these songs and I think they both sound very similar.  
What do you all think? I also love listening to new music, so leave a comment below and let me know what kind of music you like.

Happy Sunday!

Pray with great confidence,  
with confidence based upon 
the goodness and infinite generosity of 
God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. 

God is a spring of living water
 which flows unceasingly into the
hearts of those who pray.

- St. Louis de Montfort 

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Thanksgiving Trip

Loving God
who created and sustains the universe, 
who loved us all into being, 
and who gives us every good thing, 
we thank you for the blessings
that you bring into our lives. 
We thank you for the gift of life itself, 
which you gave us in our mothers' wombs. 
We thank you for the fresh start of each new day, 
which is a sign of your renewing and creative love. 
And we thank you for our friends, our families
our neighbors and our coworkers, 
whose human love is an image
of your divine care. 
Increase our gratitude this Thanksgiving Day
and help us to recognize all the good things
that we have, both large and small
And magnify our desire to share
what we have with others, 
so that they too may be 
grateful to you, 
Loving God

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

come fly with me

Thanksgiving is this week and I'm off to the airport tomorrow.come fly with me
Here are some of the things that I like to bring with me on the flight: 
{one} GUM. I always like to bring some gum to chew on the plane because my ears always pop.
{two} iPhone. I definitely pack my iPhone. I like to jam to music, play games, or listen to a good audio book. If you bring your phone, do not forget to put it on airplane mode. 
{three} headphones. These are a must.  You don't want to distract others on the plane with your hip beats, so be considerate of others around you.
{four} hand sanitizer. There are tons of germs on airplanes, so bring your hand sanitizer.
{five} books. I love to read books, while I'm flying. There are so many good books.  I am bring my nook, which has a few books that I'm reading: Captivating and Rediscovering Catholicism

If you are flying this week, have a safe flight!
What do you bring when you are traveling by plane?

This is one of our favorite quotes! 
We are all called to be saints and to live out our faith. 
The saints inspire us.  
They were human beings just like us 
and went through so many struggles, 
but lived an authentic life and imitated Jesus Christ.  
As a Catholics, we look up to the saints and we ask them to pray for us. 

Matthew Kelly wrote "I do not worship these people, 
but I do greatly admire them for their virtue and integrity"

Today, we challenge you all to live out your faith!
Hope each of you have a blessed Sunday! 

God Bless,

The new James Bond movie came out November 9th! 
I really want to go out and see this movie.
I have seen a lot of James Bond movies and they are amazing.
Has anyone seen this one?
How was it?
Well, the reason why I bring up SkyFall - other than the fact that I want to see the movie - is that OPI came out with a SkyFall collection:
Aren't these colors amazing?  I really like Casino Royal, SkyFall, On Her Majestys Secret Service, The Living Daylights, and...oh who am I kidding I kinda like them all.  Which color do you like?

Veterans Day/Let Us Pray

Today is Veterans Day!

Let us honor the men and women who have served for our country! Thank you for all that you have done.  We are truly blessed for your service. Also, thank you to all the men and women who are currently serving for our country

Here is a prayer for our deceased veterans:

O God,
by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest,
look kindly on your departed veterans who gave their
lives in the service of their country.
Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of 
your Son
they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom
and rejoice in you with your saints forever.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. 

Pray with great confidence, with confidence based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. God is a spring of living water which flows unceasingly into the hearts of those who pray- St. Louis de Montfort

Sick Day

Today, I have spent my entire day in my room trying to kill this bug.
I have not even changed out of my pajamas!
I stocked up on sick supplies earlier this week:
- green tea with lemon
- tissues
- coffee drops that taste like candy

I have also been watching Modern Family on Hulu.
It is an awesome show!
