I was living in New York during a very challenging time, crying a lot, when a friend who is quite important in my life mentioned the Monastery. I felt instantly moved. I remember talking to my mother about it, and she said, “Call them. Call them right now.” We both had this sense of urgency for me to get in a car right then and drive there. I called the Monastery, and they were able to get me in for a retreat at Emery House that very weekend. That weekend began in me the most profound conversion of life. It was the beginning of seeing what healthy love looks like. The doors started to open within me to a profound relationship with Jesus. It was a healing. It truly healed my heart.
