I was so exhausted after coming home from work tonight that I barely had enough energy to take off my shoes, collapse on my bed and turn on a 90's radio station. The first song I heard was "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. The more I listened, the more I realized the song was more than a victory cheer for soon being able to pay off half the tuition fees I still owe. ("Whoa, we're halfway there...") The idea of "living on prayer" sums up how I have chosen to live this summer. I needed a way to...

By Gigi Labranche God this summer has given me the chance to reflect on my life and has taught me patience. Since summer started, finding a second job has been the only thing on my mind until recently. Through stressing, I had lost faith, had doubted Him and as a result have had a gap in my prayer life.

“When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window.” That's quite possibly my favourite quote from my favourite movie, The Sound of Music. It seems to be applying to me right now too. This past year I've moved away from home, learned a new concept called "getting a job and keeping it,” had my first real and healthy heart break, completed and failed parts of my first year of university, met the most loving people in my life that I've ever encountered, all of whom led me into a prayer life, and ultimately, I met more closely, chose, and...

This summer God has really changed a lot of my life, from some of my family moving far away and through leading Discovery at my parish. Both are things that are unexpected and require some new responsibilities. But I’m ready to go wherever, talk to whoever and try whatever God's calling me to do. Leading Discovery at my parish especially has really matured my view on what we can actually do with our faith once we have established a personal relationship with Jesus. At first I wasn't really sure how to proclaim the gospel to someone, but leading Discovery is...
