I am the eldest of three sisters and one brother. I love to write on my blog, read books, goof around and bake cupcakes.
My family is one of the most important things in my life. but I was born in I remember having a great desire even at a young age to join him in his efforts to bring others to the faith. My father let me join him in one of his evangelism classes and I filled out the workbook right along with the other adults there, (quite possibly along with some Daughters of St. Paul, because my father told me there were some FSPs in his class!). . My father, Chris Noble, was a teacher of at the University of Steubenville.
I left a great job as a Systems Analyst in San Francisco, fabulous friends and a wonderful family in Oklahoma to come to St. Louis and I am excited to get to know a new place and follow God on this adventure He has planned for me.
Please pray for me as I begin this journey of further discernment; I definitely could use your prayers. Be assured I keep you in mine as well, God bless!

After a long week, it was nice to sleep in and have a relaxing day of rest. We attended noon mass at Assumption Catholic Church (www.assumptionstl.org) and then spent our day at The Butterfly House (http://www.butterflyhouse.org/). It was thrilling to see all the beautiful butterflies flying around inside the conservatory. We took lots of pictures. They were such a pretty sight...all sorts of colors, sizes, species...you name it! Afterwards we went to another part of the Butterfly house complex and had some fun riding on a carousel...something some of us had not done since we were kids!! It was great :-) We then went out for an early dinner to Blueberry Hill (http://www.blueberryhill.com/) located in University City. The cafe is famous for its burgers - which by the way were pretty amazing! Anyway, we had dinner at one of the tables on their sidewalk while enjoying the city which was teeming with life - lots of young people, people in costumes (not sure why...), people playing drums, and music of all sorts. We truly had a fun-filled day :-) Thank God for Sundays, now we are rejuvenated for the week!

Today, the Lord blessed our community with three new postulants! Finally, the day has come and we are SO happy to have Erin Nolan, Theresa Noble and Cheryl Galema with us :-) We had a simple and grace-filled entrance ceremony during Morning Prayer where we invoked our co-foundress Sr. Thecla Merlo to intercede for them as they begin their new journey. Our formator, Sr. Rebecca then presented Theresa, Erin and Cheryl with an image of Jesus our Divine Master as a reminder that they are to be drawn closer into Him so that He may be formed in them. At the conclusion of Morning Prayer, we all welcomed our new members with an embrace. Immediately following was the celebration of mass for our three new postulants, Erin, Theresa, and Cheryl and for their families in our convent chapel. Please join us in thanking God for His goodness and for sending us laborers for His abundant harvest. Pray for us that we may be faithful to the work of the Divine Master in us!
