  1. Welcome, Katie!
    Do you ever speak at youth conferences or high school retreats? My daughter will be attending a sophomore retreat in a couple of weeks at her high school (Bishop Moore Catholic High School) in Orlando, Florida, and what immediately came to mind is how we need more young women like yourself to speak about their journey and how they answered God’s call. This is a very challenging time for our youth, especially for young girls like my daughter who have been raised in the Faith, but who are drawn to today’s provocative culture. We need more role models!

    God bless you and I will look forward to reading your articles.
