Gimme Shelter in theaters Jan. 24, 2014!

Have you heard of the film coming out in less than 2 weeks starring Vanessa Hudgens, James Earl Jones, Brendan Fraser and Rosario Dawson?

If not keep reading!

The film is called Gimme Shelter and it is based on a true story of a woman who runs away from a drug-ridden and abusive home to find her father all the while being pregnant. From the encouragement of a Catholic priest, this teenager herself in a pregnancy shelter where she finds her true family.

Vanessa Hudgens completely transformed herself for this role, and does a wonderful job. I was never sure about her acting ability until I saw her in this film. (Yes I have already seen the film! One of the perks for working for Carmel Communications!)

Watch the trailer below and see it for yourself on Jan. 24, 2014!

I’m here for YOU!

I’m back!

it has been awhile since I last blogged but with a lot going on in the fam and with the holidays thrown in there, blogging was the last thing on my mind 🙂 I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and beginning of 2014!

In life we should all continue learning until death. Usually people associate learning with school and the education system, however we should also constantly learn from our family, neighbor, enemy, etc.

I have learned a lot in these past few months from the “school” of life. Although there were many times I thought “why” or “I don’t want to learn it this way,” God had his plan.

In times of trial it is easy to retreat into yourself and think less about others, that is not what God wants. We were made to be in communion with one another, so if you are struggling reach out to someone you trust!

I’m telling you this to help encourage you along the path of life. If you feel sad/ discouraged please trust in God. He will lead you through even if it feels like baby steps. He has a better plan than even we could dream of. Be patient and pray 🙂

Below is one of my favorite quotes from an amazing French priest, Fr. Jacques Philippe:

“Our Lord never permits us to experience a time of trial unless he intends it to bring more abundant graces once it is over” #TimeforGodbook

if you need prayers or a prayer buddy let me know 🙂 we are in this together
