Here is what a recent pilgrim had to say about our annual Holy Land pilgrimage!

 Thank you for a most wonderful, spiritual experience these past 2 weeks. The pilgrimage surpassed any expectations I had. Your teachings, Jeff, were so meaningful at each site. You are able to pull together all the history, the spirituality, the geography of the area, the archeological aspects, etc. so well to make the whole story make sense. You have challenged us to grow spiritually not only with questions to ask ourselves, but ways to ponder those question in our lives, and the wonderful "weapons" we have to tackle them, grow from them, and make necessary changes in our lives so that we may be better disciples of the Lord and spread the Good News to others. Certainly my times in adoration, and daily prayer will be enriched because of this Holy Land experience. ~~ Barb K

The Story of Nick Vujicic: Very, Very Inspiring!

We all have a set of obstacle that we face on a daily basis. The beautiful thing about serving Jesus Christ is that he knows our limitations in an intimate way. The Lord has a way of showing his strength in our weakness if we will only allow him to shine through. In Christ we are overcomers as the Apostle John said, "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith" ( 1 John 5:4 ). Watch this video of a young man who has found victory in Christ and think about what the Apostle Paul said in Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things in him who strengthens me." Be inspired!


Matthew In A Day: St. Peter Chanel, Roswell GA

This last weekend I had a wonderful time with the great people of St. Peter Chanel parish in Roswell Georgia. We spent an entire day going through the gospel of Matthew. I want to say thanks to Fr. Frank McNamee and Deacon Mike Bickerstaff for their support and encouragement. I would also like to thank to my wonderful hosts who worked so hard in preparing for the conference, Hugh & JoAnn Hayman.

“In The Blink Of An Eye”: What are you doing with your life?

I want to share with you one of the most inspiring videos I have ever seen. As you know God has given us all gifts and talents and one day we will stand before Him and give an account. I know that I am often guilty of making excuses for why I can't do something. In the kingdom of God the mustard seed can grow into something beautiful that benefits so many others. After watching this video ask yourself the question, "what am I doing with the gifts that God gave me?" Click here to watch the video.
