Greetings and welcome to The John 3:30 Podcast, we focus on Catholic Faith Life. The goal is to share different ways people keep their fire burning for our Catholic Faith. I have seen firsthand many people attend a Retreat or go through a traumatic Life Event and it brings them closer to their faith. For a moment. They are hungry for more. Unfortunately, not too long after, many return to their “old ways.” I firmly believe this happens because they do not know what they do not know. They may not be aware that they can attend Adoration, pray a Novena, or any other beautiful ways our Catholic Faith offers us the opportunity to grow in our Faith. My thought process is to sit down and speak with “everyday” people and have a conversation with them as to how they keep their fire burning for our Catholic Faith.  Like what you hear?

Episode 11 is here!! In this episode, I sit down and have a conversation with my good friend from High School, DeAnna Corona. We find out how this Stay-At-Home Mother of three girls keeps her fire burning for our Catholic Faith. We discuss how Spiritual Reading by Fr. Michael Gaitley and taking notes/journaling while listening to Catholic Talks have help her learn more about out Catholic Faith all while keeping her household running smoothly. She gives kudos to her husband Sam as he finds different Spiritual Readings to help keep her fire burning. She also shares how asking Our Lady for her Intercession has helped her. We learn how going outside of her comfort zone by being involved with the Youth at her Parish helped her serve as well as attending Extraordinary Minister classes at the Tepeyac Institute. DeAnna shares a story of how she was Blessed to serve as a Spiritual Companion for a Women's ACTS Retreat as well as a Director. Jason plants a seed for DeAnna to considering pursuing classes in ACTS Spiritual Direction. Towards the end of our conversation, we discuss how doing the "Little Things" can be offered up to God. DeAnna explains how doing them with love helps her grow in her faith. Books mentioned during our Conversation: Consoling in the Heart of Jesus The One Thing is Three 33 Days to Morning Glory The Imitation of Christ - by Thomas a Kempis The Story of a Soul - St Theresa Diary of St. Faustina Special thanks to Philip Strauch III for providing the Outro Music, "He must Increase."
