Footsteps to Heaven is brought to you by Good News Ministries of GNM.org.

Good News Ministries of Tampa Bay was founded in 1995 by Terry and Ralph Modica in the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida. Our staff and volunteer team serve from across the US and around the world. The Executive Director Terry Modica is an international speaker and author.

Terry Modica is executive director of Good News Ministries of Tampa Bay (http://gnm.org), which she founded with her husband Ralph in 1995 to help people grow closer to Christ, enter the embrace of the Father, and become evangelizers empowered by the Holy Spirit. Since 1999, Terry has been producing Good News Reflections on the daily readings of Catholic Mass. Her ministry has spread throughout the world.

She credits the Holy Spirit for bringing her into the Catholic faith in 1977. He gave her instant faith in the True Presence of Christ in the Eucharist when a friend explained the miracle to her. This rescued her from the occult.

Terry, who has been involved in a wide variety of parish and diocesan ministries, has a theology degree and pastoral certifications. A versatile speaker, she gives retreats and conference talks on the Holy Spirit, Difficult Relationships, the Rosary as Mystical Union with Christ In Daily Life, Healing the Wounds that Affect Our Intimacy with Abba, How to Use Virtual Reality in Ministry and other topics.

Author of Overcoming the Power of the Occult and Daily Prayers with the Saints, look for her other publications at Catholic Digital Resources (https://catholicdr.com).

Life’s a journey full of challenges. When we walk with Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit to the destination that God the Father designed for us, the results are better than we could ask for or imagine.

Footsteps to Heaven – How to Fortify Your Faith

Episode #62: Is your life so well fortified that you can withstand the problems you’re facing in such a way that you still have the peace of Christ and even joy? Ephesians 6:10-13 tells us that we are on a battlefield; demons want to diminish our trust in God, but God has given us everything we need to be victors. In this episode, Terry Modica shares ideas on how to fortify your faith more completely. She uses as an example the story of how a Good News Ministries conference was rescued through an act of complete surrender and explains how this fortified her faith.

Episode #60: On our journey to heaven, we need to strengthen our spirits so we can do our very best to receive the very best that God wants to give to us.

In this episode, Terry Modica uses scriptures to explain the big difference that happens when we are hot for the Lord, living in the fire of the Holy Spirit, working hard to become the saints that God the Father created us to be.

Footsteps to Heaven – How the Light of Christ Always Conquers Darkness

Episode #58: What are you concerned about because darkness seems to have taken over? Whatever it is you’re worried about, there is darkness there. But John 1:5 assures us that “Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness does not overcome it.” The Light of Christ is always victorious. Jesus came so that we could learn from him and receive from him through his Holy Spirit the same light he has so we can live as victors over every problem and so that we can conquer the devil. Darkness is weaker than light! And during the dark times, God is preparing us for what he wants us to do in the light.

Footsteps to Heaven – The Gift God Gives Everyone for Healing and Renewal

Episode #59: Stressed out? Tired? Suffering from troubles? Jesus said (Mark 2:27), “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” Sabbath rest is a gift from God for our healing and renewal. It’s so vital to our well-being that God commanded it. To keep the day sacred, we need to do more than go to church. We need to make ourselves fully available to God so he can minister to us. Why does the story of creation in Genesis say God rested on the 7th day? Not because he was tired! God doesn’t need to rest. But we sure do. Terry Modica reveals why obeying this commandment is a gift from the Lord. She also explains why our day of rest is Sunday and not the Hebrew tradition of Saturday.
