Sewing Hope by Sharing Your Catholic Faith Story

Sharing Your Catholic Faith Story with Nancy HC Ward

Excerpts from an interview, “Sharing Your Catholic Faith Sorry with Nancy HC Ward” on Breadbox Media’s Sewing Hope. hosted by Anne DeSantis and Billy Snyder

Thank you Anne DeSantis and Bill Snyder for a delightful time with you on Sewing Hope.

“I was not shopping for another church – ever!”

“I decided that I would try out this Catholic lifestyle on my own, which at that time meant no meat on Fridays and trying to keep up with the Latin Mass.”

“I didn’t become an evangelist right away when I joined the Church. It was a renewal experience 15 years later that empowered me to share my faith.”

“Everywhere I looked, in everything I read or heard  was the same scripture, 1 Peter 3:15,16

Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do it with gentleness and reverence,”   

“I show you how to structure a faith story, the most effective way to do it, and …I tell my conversion story using this structure and then I tell my renewal story doing the same.”
