June Prayer Breakfast

Guest Speaker: Monica Schuh

Monica was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, to Ken and Anne Marie, the second of three daughters. Her parents are still happily married and living on PEI. Her older sister is married with seven children, also on PEI, while her younger sister is a physiotherapist residing on the opposite coast, in Chilliwack BC.

Monica had an idyllic childhood on the Island where she spent her summers on the beach and her winters crawling over five-foot snowbanks. Growing up in a Catholic family, she attended Mass every Sunday and received all her sacraments. However, like many cradle Catholics, she simply went through the motions, living a faith which was really that of her parents.

In high school, Monica joined a youth group at her parish. This is when she really began searching and questioning who God really was in her life. Through her many experiences as part of this youth group, and with the guidance of her parish priest, she made the decision to embrace her Catholic faith and devoted her life to Jesus. This led Monica to serving as a missionary, travelling for two years with NET Ministries.

As much as she loved Prince Edward Island, and knowing she would miss her family tremendously, Monica knew the Lord was leading her on a different path. So, in 2005, she moved to Calgary to further her studies. She planned only to stay in Alberta for two years, but the Lord had a much better plan, and for that she is forever grateful. She met her husband Rick in 2006 and they married in 2012. Two years ago, Monica accepted a position at the University of Alberta, bringing her and Rick to Edmonton.

Throughout her life's journey, Monica has been very blessed and grateful for her relationship with the Lord. Grateful, too, for the people that He has placed in her life, people that have challenged her to grow deeper and live more fully in the Holy Spirit.
