Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not very tech savvy. So today I found myself in an online tech support chat with the email software provider I use for my ministry emails. Though I’m sometimes able to pick things up fairly quickly, I always have a lot of questions. The woman on the other end […]
About Maria Gullo
This author has yet to write their bio.
Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud Maria Gullo contributed a whooping 31 entries.
There may be a few people, a very small percentage of the world’s population, that are untouched by the present climate of anxiety and stress. These individuals, if they exist, are probably living ‘off the grid’ of what we call ‘normal’; having little or no contact with social media and news outlets. The rest of […]
Most High God, We boldly ask all of heaven to assist us as we open our hearts in prayer for our children. We are grateful for these gifts you have entrusted to us. From their first breath to their last we ask for your protection and guidance and sanctuary from the deceptions of this world. […]
Feeling stuck? Over and over again, repeating what you don’t want to do hoping one day you will arrive at the life you want. Why don’t New Year’s resolutions work? Because we can’t will ourselves into a new way of being and thinking. We don’t really know what we want, or how to get it. […]

Most of the time when I share with someone I’m going on a seven day silent retreat the reaction is always the same: “You’re going to do what? For how long?” Yes. For seven days, other than a daily half-hour spiritual direction appointment, silence reigns. Even though I’ve been going on these retreats for years and know […]
Enough already! Have you ever yelled that out at the top of your lungs or whimpered it through tears as you knelt face down on the floor? I have, throughout life, more times than I can count. Sometimes the heavy stuff happens and hits like an avalanche, without warning. At a particularly empty moment where […]
