The Storytellers – Episode 036: Mike Aquilina

Mike Aquilina is a Catholic author, popular speaker, poet, and songwriter who serves as the

executive vice president of the St. Paul Center for 

Biblical Theology.

Christian history tells the story not of an empire, nor of a culture, but of a family. The authors in

this series strive to communicate that history in a way that’s accessible and even entertaining.

They see history as true stories well told. They don’t fear humor or pathos as threats to their

trustworthiness. They are unabashed about their chosen perspective, but they are neither

producing propaganda nor trashing tradition. The Catholic Church’s story is our inheritance, our

legacy, our pride and joy, and our cautionary tale.

The Storytellers – Episode 035: Mary Lenaburg

In Be Brave in the Scared, Catholic writer Mary Lenaburg shares how the overwhelming demands of caring for her severely disabled daughter ultimately taught her—and can teach you—that trusting in God and accepting his will can lead to profound joy, no matter what challenges you face.

Be Brave in the Scared is an uplifting account of human frailty (and stubbornness) surrendered to faith. Lenaburg tells the heart-rending story of how caring for her severely disabled daughter affected her self-image, marriage, family life, and faith.

Although she initially struggled to accept God’s will and her own limitations, Lenaburg ultimately learned how to trust God. She found in that trust inexplicable joy, even during the most difficult days of her life. She writes boldly and authentically about challenges we all encounter, such as trials with control, blame, exhaustion, fear, and acceptance.

The Storytellers – Episode 033: Mike St Pierre

What if prayer could become one of the most rewarding and meaningful aspects of your whole life? What if you could use the skills productive people use to help you pray?

Michael St. Pierre, executive director of the Catholic Campus Ministry Association and a productivity expert, shares five habits that you can use to help you gain confidence in your prayer and strengthen your relationship with God.

Catholics are taught that prayer is necessary to live their faith, but many sincere Mass-goers find it almost impossible to pray consistently. They know that prayer is at the core of a relationship with God, but many still don’t have a clue about how to go about integrating prayer into their everyday lives. As a result, their confidence level related to prayer is low.
