I don’t get to watch TV very often, and truthfully I am embarrassed to admit that many of the radio interviews I’ve been featured on I’d never heard of before I was asked to participate! But The Journey Home is one exception. I’ve watched it with fascination for over a decade, and I’ve always found the life stories of one’s personal journey into the Catholic faith to be riveting, convincing, heartening, and inspiring.
It was a great honor that I was invited to come on the show for a taping in September (for October 16th airing). I have to admit, I was racking my brain in bewilderment, trying to figure out what possibly would be so intriguing about my own faith story. I am not a convert and not even really a revert in the purest sense of the word. I did explore other Christian denominations. I even dabbled in the occult for a short stint. But I never really stopped attending Mass. I just sort of “checked out” emotionally.
Even so, it was a great joy to speak with Marcus Grodi and get to know his amazing staff to discuss the ups and downs of what has shaped me into the woman I am today and what has largely influenced why I have remained a Catholic.
I believe everyone has a story that needs to be told (that includes you), and I pray that my journey might encourage someone else to grow in their faith even stronger than before.
(Just an aside: Please consider donating to the Coming Home Network. It is Marcus Grodi’s non-profit that serves The Journey Home shows. They rely on donations to keep their ministry going, including their equipment, all staff members, and promotional materials.)
