The keynote speaker, Pat Gohn, wowed us with her talk on Perseverance at the Catholic Writers Conference (CWG) Live. Whether or not you are a writer, you can apply her “Prayer and Practices of Writers and Artists” to your calling in life. That’s because “art and faith (our work and faith) are not compartmentalized – it’s all soul work that we do,” she said.

All of us need to go deeper and become on fire with the Holy Spirit, so prayer is something we can’t do without every day. “We impoverish ourselves when we don’t take time for ourselves to meet with the Lord.”
