Get to know us  →

We are Catholic Speakers, Authors, Evangelists, Bloggers, and goofballs for Christ. We love having fun, keeping it natural and relatable around here. With ten years of marriage under our belt and the experience of parenting five crazy kids, we’ve got plenty of stories to share.

Hi, We're the angels

How is March almost halfway over??

We pray you’ve been having a fruitful Lenten season! We’ve been traveling every weekend this Lent, speaking to various age groups for parish missions and retreats. God is so good and, despite the great darkness in our world today, the power of the Holy Spirit is on the move!

We’ve been blessed to be a part of Ascension’s newest program Renewed & Received, a program for youth preparing for their First Reconciliation and First Communion. The program is awesome! Our kids, who are preparing for their own First Communion, love the videos and animation, and we contributed (alongside Fr. Mike Schmitz, Sr. Josephine Garrett, Mari Paulo, and others) to the parent and catechists support videos.

We’re doing a lot of PR for the program, which we believe will truly bless families and parishes. Here’s some behind-the-scenes tomfoolery, and here’s a link to check out the Renewed & Received program itself, for anyone interested.

Here’s a round-up of other recent media:

  • KolbeCast: Bobby was interviewed on the podcast for Kolbe Academy, an online classical Catholic school, and will be speaking to their student body this week. Listen to the conversation here!
  • Bobby interviewed his friend Conor Donahue about his experience as a Navy Seal and his “5 Lessons from Hell Week.” Check out their conversation on our “Conversations” podcast here:

Lastly, THANK YOU for your prayers for our family, our ministry, and for walking with us on this earthly journey. Christ wants us all to be his hands and feet in his vineyard, so let’s get into the arena this Lent!

-Jackie & Bobby
