Where I serve

My Story

I thought I had it all; a loving Catholic family, great friends, and a talent for running.  However, I was missing a crucial piece of my life—a relationship with Jesus.  When I moved to college at UW-La Crosse I was eager to start my academic and athletic career in addition to growing in my faith.  As classes became harder and practices longer, I quickly became engrossed in the busy student-athlete life and soon forgot my goal of wanting to grow in my faith.

I lived my life this way for the first three years of my collegiate career.  I wanted to grow in my faith, but I didn’t know what that looked like outside of attending Sunday Mass and weekly Bible study.  The first week of senior year, I encountered a FOCUS missionary, Amanda. Through her authentic friendship, I was shown what it looked like to actually live each day for Christ. Through her guidance, I attended confession for the first time in four years, began a consistent prayer life, and regularly attended daily Mass.

I encountered Jesus in a profound way at a FOCUS conference called “SEEK” in January of my senior year. During the night of Eucharistic adoration, I was overcome with emotion after leaving confession and seeing Jesus’ face within the Eucharistic Host.  In this moment I felt His presence and true love for me.  This love overwhelmed me and launched my desire to share Christ’s love with others through life as a FOCUS missionary.  As a missionary, it is my greatest desire to radiate Christ’s love to the students at Loras College.
