'Three Surprising Steps to Happiness'
At the age of 40, Nan returned to the Catholic faith of her youth due to what can only be described as a St. Mary Magdalene conversion. She has spent the last 13 years discovering her feminine genius and personal dignity in the Catholic Church. She works for The Pilgrim Center of Hope as Coordinator for San Antonio's annual Catholic Women's Conference. "Women are God's masterpiece," she says "and I am determined to spread that message to every woman!"
Nan Balfour is a wife and mother of two sons. Her writing has been published in The Word Among Us Catholic devotional magazine and Voices magazine by Women for Faith & Family.
'Praise Him in the Storm'
Elizabeth calls herself "one of our Lord's worker bees." Since 2008, she and her husband have been lay apostles with the Servants of Divine Mercy founded by Fr. Martin Scott, Peruvian missionary priest. A member of the Catholic Women's Conference steering committee, Elizabeth coordinates prayer intercessors and an on-site chapel for the annual event. She carries out her main mission, however, as a stay-at-home mother of three differently-abled treasures, her children who are individually developmentally challenged. Elizabeth cites Blessed Teresa of Calcutta as one of her greatest inspirations.
'Lift Up Your Hearts'
After experiencing a difficult relationship that left her wounded and emotionally desperate, Angela found the healing and love she needed in Christ's Sacred Heart. Her dedication to the Catholic faith was rekindled after diving into the history and decadence of meaning in the Mass, Scripture, and Tradition.
A longtime catechist and known around the world for her work in Catholic new media, Angela works full-time as Ministry Coordinator at The Pilgrim Center of Hope. She is a native San Antonian, and happily-married newlywed.
