Caroline is a 2020 graduate of the University of Texas with a B.S. in Chemistry. A true Texan and Catholic convert, Caroline wouldn't have dreamed of leaving her beloved state post-graduation. However, upon meeting the Culture Project at SLS20, she felt God was showing her what she never knew she needed. The radically different lifestyle of missionaries spreading a message of authentic love made it easy for Caroline to say yes to joining the family! "In each of our histories, we can identify exact moments when someone failed to love us. I'm excited to invite others to reflect on these moments and share with them the truth: they're worthy of a love flowing from their identity as God's beloved."

My friend Alex recently shared Taylor Swift’s Guide to Confession, and I want to take it one step further with Taylor Swift’s Guide to the Theology of the…

Boundaries for Guy-Girl Friendships
By Caroline A.  •  June 2nd, 2022

Once as I was walking to a college class with a guy friend, we ran into my very best friend on campus. As I was introducing them, he said “Hi! I’m Caroline’s boyfriend!” …Um, hello? He definitely wasn’t–especially because I had an actual boyfriend in a different city at that time. What about our friendship…

[Single] Life is Worth Living
By Caroline A.  •  April 28th, 2022

In 1952, a Catholic bishop named Fulton Sheen won an Emmy Award for “Most Outstanding Television Personality.” His show appealed to as many as 10 million viewers each week. The title was simple, yet profound: Life is Worth Living. Through all sufferings, through all the impossibilities and fears which live rent-free in our mind, your…

3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Push Others Away
By Caroline A.  •  July 13th, 2021

Have you ever heard people reference the idea of “putting up walls,” or creating emotional boundaries? Sometimes they come from healthy, prudent, and well-discerned intentions or are even necessary when relationships become toxic and unhealthy. On the other hand, I commonly see these “walls” arising in a self-protective way that prevents vulnerability in new friendships.…
