The Three Roles of a Catholic Father Talks

The Three Roles of a Catholic Father

In a world where feminism has infected and perverted our true understanding of the roles of man and woman in the world, the devastating effects can be seen most prominently on display in the family. Men have forgotten what it means to be a father and lead their families and households. In this talk you'll rediscover exactly what that role is.

When we are baptized it is understood that, like Christ, the three-fold role of priest, prophet, and king is bestowed upon us in a unique and indelible way. All of us as Catholics are called to live this reality, but it rings especially true for husbands and fathers. In this short talk you'll come to know and appreciate what it means to be a Catholic father.
The Life-Changing Power of God’s Mercy Talks

The Life-Changing Power of God’s Mercy

Given during the Year of Mercy, this talk explores how mercy actually works in our lives and allows for the true transformation to the new life that Jesus calls us to.

In this powerful talk we look at one of the most pivotal people in the Gospel, Peter. When we first meet him he is Simon the fisherman. Then through a personal encounter with God’s mercy his life is forever changed, yet his experience of conversion doesn’t happen overnight, rather over the course of a lifetime. We’ll talk about how conversion is a process that turns sinners into saints, just like Simon became St. Peter.
Who You Really Are Talks

Who You Really Are

Most people define themselves based on what they look like, where they come from, or even what they do for a living. Think about it. What's the first thing you ask somebody after you meet them? What do you do? But in the end, none of these things define us. So how do we find our true identity? How do we know who we really are?

In this talk, relying heavily on the Sacred Scriptures, you will discover the two things that define who you really are: relation and vocation. The down-to-Earth, easy going style makes these eternal truths understandable to anyone. Uncovering your true identity not only changes how you see yourself, but it will change how you see the world around you and the people in it.
Goal Setting God’s Way Talks

Goal Setting God’s Way

Whether your making New Year's resolutions or planning for the month, there is one important thing you should do before you even get started, and that's to look at things from God's perspective. This is where we fail all too often. And it's not just us. Even some of the grandest of biblical figures tried and failed.

In this talk we look at the stories of Adam and Eve, King Saul, and Jonah. In each example we see how God laid out His vision for them, yet they chose their own path and paid the price. Then you'll learn my simple, practical, three-step process for figuring out what God's vision is for your life.
Church on a Mission Talks

Church on a Mission

In his power-packed apostolic exhortation Evangelii Nuntiandi, Pope Paul VI reminded us that “Evangelizing is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists in order to evangelize…”

In this talk I look at two powerful moments in the teaching of Jesus. First, we look at The Great Commissioning, Jesus’ last words to His disciples before His Ascension in which He bestows upon them their life’s mission.
Waiting in Joyful Hope Talks

Waiting in Joyful Hope

During the Mass, there is a very beautiful line in one of the prayers that says "we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our savior Jesus Christ." However, in the busyness of our daily lives do we really wait in joyful hope?

This talk is a reflection on the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. It works best during the season of Advent, but applies at any time of the year. We dive into each of the five Joyful Mysteries and discover what they mean for us today, learning the powerful lesson of how meditating on these important moments in the life of Jesus and His Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, can help us come closer to both of them.
