Sometimes the day that everything goes horribly, even tragically wrong, can be the best thing ever to happen to us. We almost never see it that way at the time, but we worship a God of impossibilities. A God that does things that seem utterly impossible. Join me in this episode as Ed Jozsa shares his miraculous, unbelievable story. After an accident that the doctors all agreed he should never have survived, Ed was given a series of truly mystical visions. They were a wake-up call to a man who was sleeping through his life. They can be a wake-up call to us as well. If you want to watch and read...

While Eve was speaking to the serpent, Adam...stood by idle. He did not act. How often do we also fail to act - either entirely or slowly?

A lot of us take great confidence in our technical skills. We may be the very best at our jobs of all the competition, but if we cannot connect on a personal level then we are going to struggle. Join me in this episode as Lance Cayko walks through his journey of learning to connect with others, and eventually with God. So often we run from God - or at least from what we think God represents.

Catholic Life Coach For Men

Many men are intimidated and unsure how to balance what seems like an impossible mix: providing for their family while also speaking the truth. Join me in this episode as I tackle this difficult question.  What are the principles and practical ways we as Catholic men can navigate these treacherous waters? We must hold to truth. We must hold to charity. We cannot compromise on virtue. We must be men of prayer,...

Join me in this episode as Ed Van Buskirk and I talk about the value and necessity of the Ten Commandments in our lives, even today.

Catholic Life Coach For Men

We hear all the time that we need to surrender something to the Lord. Sure, it sounds good, and is probably a good thing to do - but how do we actually do it? Sometimes surrendering that particular thing kind of feels almost like a little bit of death!  Sometimes it actually is. But we still have to do it anyways. Join me in this episode as I walk through How to finally Surrender something to the Lord. It's super simple, but also super hard. To help make the point, I also tell 3 stories in my life of where I've had to surrender something, and the pain and agony I've gone through to do it....

Mental illness is a real problem that affects a significant number of people.

But we don't even want to think about it, let alone deal with it!

Worse, it's one of the only illnesses that we "define" a person by. We never say "He's a broken arm" or "He's a heart-attack" but we do say "He's bipolar."

What does this do to our Christian brothers and sisters who are so reduced?

In this episode I am joined by Deacon Ed Shoener. We discuss the problem of mental illness, what we can do as Christians, and some of the details of the institute that deacon helped build. This is life changing information!
