  5. I will be sharing information about this DVD with our pastoral associate and see where it goes from there. it definitely sounds like my “next step”.I have had a long drought in my writing, and in sharing my story is what i want to do but really haven’t been able to do that well yet. thank you for the opportunity.

    • Nancy Ward says:

      Thank you, Minetta. I have given this three-talk seminar at local parishes in the Dallas, TX area before offering the program to parishes elsewhere. Whether you use the DVD to write your own story or to help others share their stories through some Catholic group such as a Bible study, RCIA bonus teaching, staff or ministry formation, prayer group teaching, mini-retreat or day of renewal, please request the study guide with discussion questions tor participants for each of the three segments. Keep in touch! Perhaps you can share your story on
