It was May of 2008 and I was flying to Kolkata, India to serve with the Missionaries of Charity with FOCUS. I was a senior in college, and Eric Clark was one of the FOCUS missionaries leading the trip. He was sitting to my left on the plane. Here I was excited for this opportunity to go to India to serve but incredibly nervous at the same time. What will India be like? Will I actually be able to help the people there? I wonder what their reaction to us will be?
J.crew told me I had the cheek bones and legs to be a model for them, but would have to lose 20 pounds in order to do so.
WHAT?! THAT’S CRAZY!!
Thanks, but no thanks!
Our society tries to make women believe that dating is supposed to be like the TV show Sex and the City. Well let me tell you something, that is a lie from the pit of hell.

Since the pontificates of Pope Paul VI and John Paul II, the Roman Catholic Church has been commissioned to engage and embrace the world with God's message of love once more with ‘new methods, new ardor and new expression.’ It has come to be phrased, 'the new evangelization.'
For FOCUS, this means meeting college students across the nation where they are and challenging them to examine the meaning and purpose of their lives. Through personal relationships and friendship, we offer college students the true peace and fulfillment they seek in the good news of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Catholic faith, inviting them to answer His calling in their lives.
