For 20 years of my life, the Catholic faith for me was just a requirement, not a relationship. I put on a good show for my parents, attending LifeTeen in high school every week and trying to get involved at St. Mary’s Catholic Center at Texas A&M University. I acted my way through life, never fully giving myself to Christ or the people around me. College for me was all about academics. As an Aerospace Engineering major, the NASA creed “Failure Is Not an Option” hit home and school became my religion. Burnt out and alone, I found another option – the only option – at FOCUS Summer Projects in 2017. Getting to live, work, and play in Estes Park, CO was what drew me in, but the community and the sacraments are what won my heart over for Jesus. Faithful friends and a greater understanding of God’s infinite love for us utterly and unexpectedly changed my life. I couldn’t go another day without trying to know Jesus more. My life finally had a purpose, and I can’t imagine a better way to live than sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
