My name is Lee Potts. I became a fully professed member of the Secular Franciscan Order in November 2008 and this site is a place for me to share writings that resonate with my ongoing Franciscan formation.

I’ll try to add quotes as often as possible but please don’t consider the name of the blog a promise.

If you have any comments, corrections or quote suggestions, please feel free to contact me at
