012: “Son of a Preacher Man” – Kevin Lowry

catholic_FINAL_150Question: What do you get when you take a Canadian Presbyterian pastor’s kid and send him to an orthodox American Catholic university where he has to take a Natural Family Planning class with a pretty girl?

Answer: A convert with eight kids! That’s what.

But unlike a lot of Catholic converts in the public eye, Kevin Lowry is a businessman. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t do the normal convert stuff.

His conversion story, which we’re going to hear a good bit of, is in Surprised by Truth 2. He’s also the author of a book titled Faith at Work: Finding Purpose Beyond the Paycheck. Kevin speaks at parish missions and conferences, too, and even serves as a consultant for The Coming Home Network for Marcus Grodi.

But as I said, he’s a little different than many converts with a platform.KL-275x180

Kevin’s full-time gig is that of Chief Financial Officer for a digital marketing company (not to mention being a father to all those kids). What does that mean? It means he’s a practical guy that a lot of people can relate to. He’s a passionate Catholic man who loves the Lord, loves the Church, and is a witness to how the Lord can change your life.

So sit back, pour yourself a warm cup of coffee, and enjoy a fabulous story.

011: Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic – David Currie

catholic_FINAL_150Paul got knocked off his high horse (maybe). Augustine heard a voice say “take and read.” David Currie got a catalog. The Lord moves us to conversion in mysterious ways.

If you’re thinking “a catalog doesn’t seem like the most interesting of manners in which to convert”, you’re wrong. I love this conversion story. I mean, how many convert stories have you heard where a guy who really, really wants to become Catholic is refused entry?

And David Currie is not only the author of some very popular books (e.g. Rapture: The End Time Error That Leaves The Bible Behind and Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic), he is one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. This man loves the Catholic faith like few others. You can literally hear it in his voice.

So sit back and enjoy the beautiful, heartfelt, often humorous journey of one man (and his family) into the arms of Mother Church.
