This summer I've experienced God in many ways, and I realized God is love through many unexpected, surprising events. First, my mother was recently diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. I was initially frightened and scared. So, I asked for leave from work to be with her. Many family and friends have shown tremendous support and love by praying for her and my fear has turned into awe as I watch my mother calmly continue on with her life. This diagnosis has made her realize how precious and sacred life is and she truly has been spared a more serious diagnosis....

When going over in my mind how God has affected my life during this summer I struggled a bit with what I should write on. Not much has really happened this summer, but I knew football was off the table because by the time this article is posted we would only have had one practice.

It was at this moment when...

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. In talking to CCO staff and fellow friends, I realized not praying won't do me any good and that my relationship with God needs to be re-defined. In praying once again and giving the Lord my trust and revealing to Him...
