Rebuilding a Civilization of Life & Love
Looking around at our culture, it seems very few people really knows what can truly satisfy their deepest desires. It’s no wonder, when critical human relationships are undergoing radical redefinitions that are leaving them meaningless.

Through the recovery of genuine meaning about 5 essential realities that matter most, we’ll discover a beautiful plan for life and love that will quench our deepest thirsts.
This event is available as a stand alone talk or a two-part talk.
Healing the Wounded Bride: How do we answer the Catholic Church's sexual abuse crisis?
While sexual abuse may be found in many segments of our society, it is most troubling when members of the leadership within the Catholic Church participate in such devious behavior. These secret and heinous actions strike at the heart of the Church, for it creates an environment of suspicion and distrust, as well as calls into question the entirety of the Catholic Faith.
Although an uncomfortable topic to discuss, we must take an honest and open look at the roots of this crisis. Doing so, we'll discover satisfying answers and pave the way to healing for both individuals and the Church as a whole.
This is event is either a stand alone or to be paired with other talks for a day-long retreat/parish mission.

How to be a Hero: The Meaning of Masculinity
What does it mean to be a man? So many solutions offered by the secular world fail to satisfy the deepest longings of the masculine soul. It is easy to misunderstand how we, as men, are to relate to the world, especially in relation to the opposite sex. By uncovering God’s plan for our lives, we can reclaim the original intention for our lives. This plan is written right into our sexuality. This powerful presentation will help you to be transformed and to live out your life as a gift to others.
This is event is either a stand alone or part of a day long retreat.
Unlocking the Mystery of Femininity
What does it mean to be a woman? So many images that our culture promotes fail to reveal the full glory of a woman’s dignity. These confusing notions often leave women lost, causing mistrust of others (especially of God and men). By unpacking what is meant by the “feminine genius,” women can begin to reclaim their intrinsic dignity as beloved daughters of God and learn how to receive the love that every woman deserves.
This is event is either a stand alone or part of a day-long retreat. Recommended for youth and young adult audiences.
