The Woman Behind the Blog

NICOLE

.

Depressed by high school.

Baptized by college. 

Received a master degree in theological studies by 24.

Living by the day.

.

Well… that’s the short, sweet, and to-the-point version.

The lengthier tale includes: a decade of suffering with major depression and generalized anxiety disorder, a coming-to-Christ experience while participating in a high school retreat, attending Rite of Christian Education for Adults (RCIA) classes throughout senior year, receiving the Sacraments of Initiation at my local Roman Catholic parish on Easter Vigil of 2012, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in theology from Fordham University, earning a Master Arts of Theological Studies degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, walking with my sister as her Godparent, and currently working as a Parish Coordinator while also in formation with the Secular Franciscan Order.

These will be the major topics that I’ll cover with this blog, I have so many thoughts pertaining to my spiritual formation and mental health journey, that I realized at some point I would eventually need a space to flesh out my experiences.

Whether you are here for my Lenten challenge, theological reflections, poetry, or miscellaneous blog posts, I am glad you have found this site. I welcome you to my space and pray that something that I write is of comfort and motivation for you.
