About

Hello!  I’m Katy, an 18-year-old Catholic girl who loves to write.  This blog is a new project of mine, you could say.  I plan to flesh out this page more later.

I’m a senior at an all-girls Catholic high school, and this past summer I decided that running a faith-based blog will help me to rededicate my life to God.  I’m a college freshman, and I think I’m called to full-time ministry.  I go to Mass, I’m involved in my youth group, I’m a Confirmation peer and such, but if I’m going to give myself, all and everything, to God, I know that it’s going to take more than that.  It’s going to take all and everything.  This little blog seemed like a good place to start.

I’ve learned from experience that God gives us each unique gifts to serve Him, and that mine don’t include time management or organizational skills, haha.  I’m what they call an INFP — that is, intrBxv2mEFIEAAosEsoverted, intuitive, feeling, perceiving.  We’re generally sensitive, idealistic, imaginative, independent, artistic, spiritual and above all, unyielding in our convictions.  We constitute about 2% of the population, so we’re a pretty uncommon personality type.  I share the personality type with Sts. John and Luke, as well as Mother Mary.

  1. Hi Katy, I too am an INFP. I didn’t learn that until well into adulthood. I always wondered why I felt so different, and people didn’t seem to understand me most of the time. I’m glad you found this out early on about yourself. I’ve decided to embrace who I am…who God made me to be. INFP’s make great friends, because we really do care. Lots of Saints have been INFP’s…so we can hope 🙂 I have learned to accept that I will never be organized, on time, or finish projects without great effort. But, I can find such joy in simple things in life and spend hours contemplating the mysteries of God. I am sorry there are so few INFP’s, because I’d love to have a few as friends…and we could talk endlessly about our idealistic views of life. I hope you learn to love the beautiful person you are, and don’t waste time, as I did, tryiing to be like everyone else. I just know God has wonderful plans for you! God bless you!

    • Thank you, Patricia! I hardly know any INFPs, but I think we really do have a wonderfully unique appreciation of God and His creations. We know what we care about, and we’re willing to fight for it, even in the face of persecution. No, I’m not organized or punctual or work-driven, but I’m doing my best to love myself in spite of all that—though I’m having some difficulties at present. God bless!

  2. Hi Katy, I came by because you visited and commented on my blog “Unapologetically Catholic”. I look forward to reading your blog. I will post as I do. God bless.

  3. May God continue to bless you on your journey to and with Him!

    I, too, am an “INFP.” (I learned about myself through info on “HSP”…Highly Sensitive Person) After many years of trying to change myself and feeling like there was something wrong with me, I have learned to embrace this gift that God has bestowed on me. It is natural for me to intuitively know people’s struggles, and I actually feel their emotions (and spirit) as my own. The Lord leads me, and works through me, and all of us. I always pray for those He places on my heart.

    What a blessing that the Lord graced you with this knowledge of some of your gifts so early in life!

    Your sister in Christ,
    Bernadette
