Do you panic when asked about your Catholic faith?
Every baptized Christian is called to evangelize; yet many Catholics find personal evangelism intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be! In Sharing Your Catholic Faith Story: Tools, Tips, and Testimonies, Nancy Ward shows you that evangelization can be simply a matter of letting others know how God has worked in our life.
As Nancy explains the importance of being able to bear witness to God’s love by sharing your faith story, she shares her own story of lifelong conversion and shows you how to recognize the ways God has been drawing you closer to him throughout your life. You’ll also get ten tips on how to share your story in a way that is natural, effective, and un-intimidating.
In the second part of the book, you’ll read more than thirty personal faith stories by Catholics from all walks of life—converts and “reverts,” clergy, religious, and layfolk who tell their own unique stories of how God has drawn them gradually closer into his loving embrace.
I was thrilled when Nancy invited me to share my Catholic faith story for the book. I am a convert and I wrote about how my husband and my desire for the Eucharist drew me to the Catholic faith.
I felt blessed to be part of this book. I also enjoyed reading the other writers’ faith stories. I was moved and inspired by them. They were a reminder of how God works in our lives and draws us to Him.
I hope readers will be inspired as well. God draws us to Him in so many ways and it is in looking back at our journeys and others’ stories, that we can see Him and experience His love for us.
If you’ve ever wished you could be a more effective witness to God’s truth and love, you should learn to share YOUR Catholic faith story. You have a story only you can tell, and someone needs to hear it!
