PSA: ATTENTION ALL MY LOVELY FOLLOWERS!

Hello y’all! Well so far college has been one hell of a journey for me and you’ve all been there with me every step of the way through all the ups and downs. This next step in my college career takes me to Gaming Austria to spend a semester abroad. This is my first time leaving the US and flying over seas! I’m so nervous but excited as well!! I’ll be joining around 170 students from my school and we basically are relocating for 4 months to our sister campus in Austria! It’s a pretty sweet deal :) I’ll be visiting many countries and making pilgrimages to various holy places. I’ve decided that for this kind of adventure I’m going to need a separate blog … so I created one! Please be sure to check that out: findingmyselfinaustria.tumblr.com
Please hit me up with questions and prayer intentions!!
See you on the other side :)
Peace and Blessings, Mary Beth

Here’s the thing ya’ll. I’m NOT perfect, I’m not the smartest girl, most popular or social. I’m certainly not the prettiest or toned. I’ve got some curves, and yes I’ve gained a little weight in college. I LOVE food! My makeup isn’t always perfect and my hair isn’t always done. I’m not the most driven and I’m not the holiest woman I know either. I have my many vices & I have plenty of crosses that I have to carry each day. But I’m proud of who I am and who God made me. I am proud of my body, my brain & my faith in God. I LOVE being me and I wouldn’t change that for the world. I’m not a perfect girl, but who that I know has the right to define perfection? I’ve never met a perfect person and that’s okay. There are a lot of things I can’t do or I can’t/don’t have, but there are still many other things that I DO have & I’m GREAT at! I am strong and loving. I’m faithful and caring. I’m creative and quirky. The more I embrace myself, the vices & virtues, the happier I am. God doesn’t expect us to be perfect, He just expects us to be the very best we can & to embrace who He made us. And THAT to me is an attitude worth living out.

at my school Franciscan University we dont have sororities or frats, we have households that are committed to bringing the Christian life into action! Each household focuses on different “charisms” or aspects of faith & evangelization. Today I “intented” to Daughters of Jerusalem household! So I will begin my initiation process now :) Our focus is on spiritual motherhood modeled after the Song of Solomon! “I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine.” - Song of Solomon 6:3
