37, Fort St John, CA
I grew up in a semi-religious household with a non-practicing Catholic Mother and atheist Father. I was introduced to Jesus Christ at a very young age but did not formally practice any faith as a young adult. By the graces of God and the intercession of Our Blessed Mother, my heart was converted to Catholicism. I am very devout and feel grateful to have been given the opportunity to use my Free Will to answer "yes" to the calling from Our Lord Jesus Christ. I consider myself a realist, as I do not ignore or deny struggles/challenges, but I look to the Holy Trinity, Our Blessed Mother, and the Saints to help me find the spiritual growth in every situation. I am very dedicated to my family (I have a beautiful daughter I raise alone as a widow (only way to briefly describe) and career, while keeping my faith obligations #1 and incorporated into my daily life.
