For the past three years, I’ve worked with an incredibly talented woman of God as my Event and Marketing Coordinator. She has been a true blessing to my apostolate and to me! Recently, she has had to step away from assisting me to work more closely with her husband in their thriving business, as well as manage a growing family. This wasn’t easy as we have worked extremely well together and there is no question that I would not be where I am today without her help. In the end, however, focusing on family is the right thing to do to maintain a sense of balance and perspective in her life.
During the past six weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching (in Adoration, of course!) about what God has accomplished through my apostolate thus far and where I want to be as I began searching for a new management team.
After speaking with a few folks, I struck-up a conversation with my good friend Jerry Usher, former Catholic Answers Live host, Founder of Vocation Boom, and the current President of Third Millennium Media (TMM). I asked him to submit a proposal and, upon review, it was quite evident that they thoroughly understood my goals and objectives that include, above all else, changing the world by bringing as many people as possible to a deeper love of Jesus Christ and the Gospel by sharing the truth of the Catholic faith in love.
After prayerful discernment and a discussion with my wife, Colleen, about what was best for our family, I’ve decided to partner with TMM in order to achieve all that God has planned for me to do for His honor and glory. Right now, we are in the middle of a short transition period as we begin implementing our plans for the future that include a new website and other exciting changes. Stay tuned!!
I am truly grateful beyond words for your support and prayers for my apostolate, especially during the last three years of working in the Lord’s vineyard on a full-time basis. Thank you! It hasn’t been easy but with my wife and family behind me—and your continued prayers—“I can do all things in Him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). Please know that you and your loved ones are in prayers every day. God bless you all!
The wonderful women of faith over at the Beauty in Belief blog have just published an interview they did with me this month. I cover a wide range of topics that include: the diaconate, the redefinition of marriage, Planned Parenthood, fallen away Catholics, and ongoing conversion.

Just in time for Father’s Day! My review of Clayton C. Barbeau’s The Father of the Family in The Catholic World Report. Enjoy!
This October 19th-27th join me on a spiritual journey as we follow in the footsteps of the family of St. Therese of Lisieux!
Why should you go? It’s simple: your marriage will be impacted in a deeply meaningful and powerful way. After this pilgrimage, you and your spouse will:
- Reestablish a strong spiritual foundation and deeper commitment to seeking God together.
- Show more affection, reverence, and esteem for each other.
- Develop loving habits that will become part of your everyday life.
- No longer take each other for granted.
- Remember that Christ is the fountain from which you receive the strength, power, and grace you need to get each to heaven.
I would like to extend a personal invitation for you and your spouse to join us in France from October 19-27, 2014 to rekindle the love, joy, and passion you once felt in your marriage relationship. I can’t wait to meet you and help you take your marriage to the next level!
