"I attended my first Giving Voice National Gathering in 2009. Since then, I have taken part in some volunteer events where I was privileged to meet several other GV Sisters. Giving Voice is a sustaining force in fostering life-giving community for me, especially in light of religious life's current reality. In 2020, I joined the newly formed GV Development Committee, and in 2021, I attended my first 40s retreat. Every interaction has and continues to be an opportunity to foster hope, support, and leadership as we continue this journey together. I hope that we continue to grow as Sisters for each other and do what we can lovingly empower the Body of the Cosmic Christ."
