Monastery in my Heart

sharing my faith and my creativity

This website is still under construction. Please check back for updates and new content. God bless you!


From cartography to preschool teaching, to Catholic religious life, both active and cloistered, I have followed many paths. My journey truly became an adventure when I let God take the lead. Now married and expecting my first child, I hope to share the fruits of my contemplation, study, joys, trials, and creativity in order to inspire others to trust in God who truly works all things  for the good of those who love him.  

Thank you for visiting

Know that you are in my prayers.
