    Finish the Race, Complete the Task

    There are cliches and overused quotes for every occasion in life. In high school, our English teachers would caution us against using cliches in our writing. For starters, they’re sometimes hard to understand for someone who has never heard them before. How do you explain to someone that while an apple a day may help [...]

    Using SMART Goals to Accomplish Big Things

    Smart goals

    Let’s talk about goals. This post comes partially from the realization that just two weeks after New Year’s (time sure does fly) some of my New Year’s resolutions have already fallen by the way side (or never really got off the ground in the first place). In my cubical, I have this clipping from a [...]

    A Tradition-less Christmas

    A Tradition-Less Christmas

    When I was younger, the lack of any sort of stable Advent traditions was a point of pride. I’ve spent many a Christmas eve camping out on the floor of the Miami airport during a 5-hour layover playing cards with my siblings, waiting to spend Christmas with family in the Caribbean. But, on the risk [...]

    Beginning Advent With A Challenge

    Beginning-Advent

    This year, the number of days in this holiday season are the shortest it possibly can be. 27 days. Just 27 days separate Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Year of Faith Logo

    Growing up in a family whose roots are deep in the small Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago I’ve always heard December 31st referred to as “Old Year’s Night” instead of “New Year’s Eve.” I’ve always kind of liked calling it “Old Year’s Night.” Calling it that, in a way, gives us an opportunity to [...]

    An American Moment: Remembering Our Fellow Brothers and Sisters in Service

    An American Moment

    “Freedom always comes at a high price. It requires a generous heart, ready for sacrifice. We cannot excuse ourselves from our own personal responsibility for freedom. There is no such thing as freedom without sacrifice.” – Blessed Pope John Paul II Veteran’s Day, November 11th, commemorates two very significant events. On November 11, 1918 the [...]

    On Homecomings

    Baylor Catholic - Homecoming

    There’s something captivating about the season of Fall. And before you think it’s because of the cooler temperatures, pumpkin spiced lattes and a football season in full swing – it’s not. There’s this one aspect of fall is exciting every time I see it approaching on my calendar – Homecoming. The occasion is just as [...]

    Join Austin’s 40 Days For Life Efforts

    Pro-Life Waco

    I’ve told the story before of my first experience standing outside of Planned Parenthood during prayer vigil. It was the summer before I graduated and was completing an assignment for a photojournalism class. I’d supported pro-life organizations and prayed at prayer vigils, but never directly on the sidewalk outside a Planned Parenthood or other abortion [...]
