JACQUELINE’S FAVORITE SCRIPTURE VERSE:
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
My family which includes my husband, 2 kids, and my parents have been parishioners at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Fresno, Ca for over 30 years. I work full time as faculty for an on-line University in their College of Education. Raising both my kids in the Catholic faith and in Catholic Education has been fulfilling. Praying the rosary has been a regular practice in our house along with striving to live a faith-filled life. At first, I would pray the rosary to help calm my stress with health concerns of close family members, and now it’s an everyday practice that’s just become commonplace. No matter how crazy and uncertain life gets, praying the rosary always brings back the familiar and the calm. I enjoy staying active and working out, so SoulCore is the beautiful combination of the two. It’s a blessing to share my passion for teaching, exercise, the Blessed Mother and the rosary with many people in my area.
