My name is Susan Skinner and I grew up in the Washington, D.C. area. I am a cradle Catholic. I am the youngest of 4 children and I attended all Catholic schools including the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.
Though I never left the church, I had a great awakening of faith after the murder of my friend Veronica on August 29, 2010. For the first time I can remember I experienced God come alive in prayer and the Sacraments and my luke warm heart was lit on fire with a zeal for Christ and his church. I felt called to ministry and earned a certificate in catechesis from Aquinas College in Nashville and I am currently enrolled earning a certificate in Spiritual Direction from Avila Institute in partnership with Heart of Christ Institute.
I am a wife to Jason and mother to Ryan, Sean and Sarah and caregiver for my parents Mike and Mary Jo. I am also the Director of Adult of Adult Faith Formation and RCIA at Saint Philip Catholic Church and I am a columnist at Catholic Stand and Catholic 365. I am a guest every Friday on Father Dan Reehil’s radio show Battle Ready with Father Dan Reehil on Radio Maria, USA. I am also a member of the deliverance ministry team.
This blog is dedicated in loving memory of Veronica Chiaramonte Bozza – born March 31, 1971 in Milano, Italy – died August 29, 2010 in TN, USA.
