My Sunnyvale Visitor

Dear blog visitor from Sunnyvale, California,

You visit every day. You seem to be making your way through blog postings in a very methodical fashion. I've noticed. Just wanted you to know.

I would love to know your story.

(And to other visitors-- I would love to know more about you as well.)

May the grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with you, now and always--



  1. Denise, I first heard your conversion story on EWTN and was profoundly moved. Your tone was deeply humble, and not one of triumphalism or elitism that I had previously come across. I am starting RCIA in a couple weeks, and could not be more excited. I hope to learn more of your wisdom in the years ahead.

    Katherine (not the reader from CA, but an enthusiastic reader nonetheless!)

  2. Welcome home, Katherine! Your year of RCIA will be a beautiful journey of grace. How wonderful that your RCIA year will coincide with the Year of Faith. Perfect! Thanks so much for taking time to write and let me know thar my story touched you. You will have a grace-filled story to share with others as well. Keep me posted, especially as we get closer to Easter Vigil (and if you have any "stuck" moments along the way). I want to hold you in my heart and in my prayers as you make those final steps to Our Eucharistic Lord Jesus Christ. Many blessings!

    1. Such kind words, Denise! Thank you. I will be sure to contact you if I come up against some barriers along the way. I am pastor's kid myself, so I feel kindred :)

    2. A preacher's kids! We have common journeys! Kansas and Missouri... we're practically neighbors! Please grab my email info from the column at the right and keep in touch. I want to walk with you all the way to the Eucharist! Blessings!

  3. Your testimony has brought tears to my eyes, not sad tears but tears of joy that reaches in the deep place in my heart where seeing the love and beauty of experiencing God's grace and pure love showering His beloved who seeks the treasure... the Gift that only God can give.

    I am a single mother of one son who is separated and my walk with God is a continuous conversion from God's Grace upon my life.

    Thank you Denise for allowing God to move you and saying yes to Him.

  4. Thank you so much cbreevesac for sharing your thoughts! It's comments like this that keep me going and help me to remember that God is using my little stories. Many blessings!
