Inspiring and Equipping Catholics to Evangelize is the theme of the new website. NancyHCWard.com, It’s meant to help us:
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. (1 Peter 3:15-16)
I’ve gathered all the pertinent information about my publications and speaking engagements to present to you on my new speaker/author website: NancyHCWard.com.
You can quickly check out a video excerpt from my Sharing Your Faith Story DVD in the header, containing a synopsis of my mission.
Below that you find major endorsements by Lisa Hendey, John Michael Talbot, Sarah Reinhard and Dave Palmer. More endorsements are in the right margins of the pages Presentations, Publications, Broadcasts, and Blogging from others with a similar mission.
