Hey Y’all! I’m Leah. Welcome to The Light Project’s monthly reflection. I’m so glad you’re here.
Before we get to the reflections, I wanted to share a little about myself. I may get a bit vulnerable in some of these reflections, so I think it might be nice for you to know a few things about me so you know where I’m coming from.
I’ll have been married to my husband for 23 years this July. I’m not sure how this is possible because sometimes I still see myself as 23, although my body likes to remind me that I’m in my mid-forties. James and I have two pretty great teenagers. Our daughter is starting college in the Fall (cue the tears and the dancing – sometimes at the same time!) and our son is still in high school.
I am a lover of nature, good cups of coffee, deep conversations, cooking, the Cajun culture, music, and oh yeah…vulnerability (I know, I know. It is an odd love!)
I have never done anything like this before in a such public way, but I’m excited to share my thoughts with you. I am a cradle-Catholic, who went to Catholic school through middle school. I’ve always had a deep faith that I owe to the priests who were in my life during my Catholic school days.
I know not everyone shares that experience, but these priests were authentic, present, and wanted me to know deeply the love that God has for me. The older I get, I realize how much I don’t know, and my desire to know more and deepen my faith is still growing. I think that
desire is what will inspire these reflections – the things I’m learning and discovering, the experiences I’m having that I think most of you will relate to, and things that inspire and encourage me along the way.
I hope you enjoy these reflections as much as I enjoy writing them and that you may discover, experience, and be encouraged to dig deeper into your relationship with Christ.
Wishing you Love and Light!
