Last edited 25th February 2015

It's often true that when the worst of humanity manifests, so does the very best. Large parts of Syria have been completely destroyed by the lengthy civil war. More than 210,000 people have died. Millions more became refugees as one of the most unique cultural centers in the world has been ruined. Civilians have paid the biggest price in the four year conflict. But amid the darkness, a group of volunteers provides some hope. That group is the White Helmets, 2,200 citizens who help their community in extraordinary ways.

My Life - God's Mosaic
Last edited 23rd February 2015

I was given an assignment for my theology class to create a mosaic. We had to recreate the icon of our choice. I instantly knew that I wanted to do Saint André. He is my patron saint and affects my daily life. As I was doing this project, which took all day to complete, I noticed something beautiful. I was spending hours putting tiny pieces of paper onto a poster board that would later create a larger image of someone amazing. Isn’t that what God did? He created the Earth for us. Then, He created us with a specific plan in mind.
