Erin is a Northern-born, Southern-living professional teacher on an indefinite sabbatical to raise 6 (for now) children and is currently a deacon's-wife-in-training. She manages life, faith, and her family's annual goal of hiking 100 miles.
I was nineteen the first time I walked into his office for spiritual direction. Nervous and completely unaware of where I was going in my life, I began to share my story with a priest who would become my mentor, guide, and friend.
At times, God has to pry the control from my hands, but I am learning that the more I let go, the more space He has to work and provide for me. Of course, His providence is always better than the plans I concoct for my own life.
