My Journey From Fear To Faith


 

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down for an interview with Abby Fisher on the local TV program Counterpoint. We discussed my background as a lifelong worrier, how the Lord has helped me to overcome my anxiety and my mission to bring the peace of Christ to those in need. If you’re someone who worries, I can assure you that there is hope. As you grow closer to the Lord, your fears will decrease and you’ll experience his peace. Jesus really is the answer, my friends.

Please contact me, if you’d like to invite me to share my story at your parish or conference.

God Has Something That He Wants You To Do…


 

Catholic Speaker and Author Gary Zimak with a reminder that God has a plan for you

“There is some task which, if you do not do it in life, will never be done without you.” (Fr. James Keller, founder of The Christophers)

Today would be a good day to ask the Lord for guidance. As Jesus reminds us, we know “neither the day nor the hour” (Matthew 25:13).

Don’t let your task go undone!

The Greatest Offer You’ll Ever Receive…


 

Catholic speaker and author Gary Zimak invites readers to come closer to Jesus

Jesus said:

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

What is your response? What do you have to lose? Just your worries, sadness, hopelessness and loneliness. Today’s the day to accept the Lord’s offer and move closer to Him, my friends. I plan to do it. How about you?

I Stopped Worrying And You Can Too! Let Me Share My Secret…

Are you tired of worrying? There is hope! In conjunction with the release of my latest book, From Fear To Faith: A Worrier’s Guide To Discovering Peace, I am now scheduling speaking engagements for 2015 and beyond. I’d be honored to visit your parish or conference and share the method that has helped me to break free from my lifelong worrying habit. My calendar is rapidly filling up, so please contact me today in order to lock in your desired dates.

Here are a few endorsements from people who have heard me speak:

“Catholic speakers don’t usually make me laugh. If they do, they don’t make me think or help me grow in my relationship with Christ. Gary Zimak does both… and more. His unique way of mixing humor with profound insights into the Faith has helped me to go deeper into the mysteries of the Catholic Church.”

Patrick Novecosky
Editor-In-Chief, Legatus magazine

“Gary is a brilliant, insightful, and engaging speaker. His talk at the Catholic Leadership Conference was thoroughly enjoyable and memorable, and his splendid sense of humor caught me completely off guard. I highly recommend Gary as a speaker for any event.”

Kevin Lowry
Chief Operating Officer, Coming Home Network International

“Gary Zimak’s deep faith and light-hearted approach makes him the perfect evangelist for the every-man of today. His gentle soul and self-deprecating humor allow him to connect with people so that his reminder of the Gospel message, “be not afraid” is warmly received and easily believed by those who are blessed to hear him speak.”

Elizabeth Westhoff
Director of Marketing and Mission Awareness, Archdiocese of St. Louis

“Gary was the guest speaker at our March, 2014 Martinus of Northern Michigan (Catholic Business Organization similar to Legatus) chapter event at which he presented his talk titled, “Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry”. The response received from our membership was enthusiastically and genuinely positive. It is with the greatest confidence that I would endorse Gary Zimak for your consideration as a guest speaker at an upcoming Parish Mission, conference, or other Catholic community event.”

Wayne Sterenberg
Program Chair, Martinus of Northern Michigan

“We invited Gary to speak to more than 130 women of St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church in Westfield, Indiana for the 18th Annual Ladies Candlelight Dinner sponsored by our Altar Rosary Society. We couldn’t have been more pleased. Gary’s topic of “Pray, Hope, and Don’t Worry” was a perfect fit for the women in attendance. He opened our eyes to using our Faith to deal with the anxiety we experience in our day to day lives. His use of scripture and humor was the perfect combination to reach the women of our Parish. We were blessed to have Gary attend our event and recommend him as a speaker for any parish event.”

Adena Vaughn and Laura DuVall
Co-Chairs, Ladies Candlelight Dinner, St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church (Westfield, IN)

“Gary Zimak is an outstanding speaker. He speaks at the “level of the people” without watering-down the teachings of Scriptures and the Church. Having served as a pastor of a parish struggling with a merger and closing of a school, my parishioners found his message refreshing and uplifting — reminding us of God’s Divine Providence and presence in all the events of life. I have also known Gary personally for many years. He is a prayerful father and husband and a faithful witness of the Gospel. I highly recommend Gary to any pastor or church community wishing to hear the message of the Gospel and how it applies to the dealings of everyday life.”

Fr. Allain Caparas
Director of Catholic Identity, Gloucester Catholic High School (Gloucester City, NJ)

Here’s the latest endorsement for my new book (coming in August), From Fear to Faith: A Worrier’s Guide to Discovering Peace. Thank you, Staci Gulino!

Staci Gulino endorses From Fear To Faith, the new book by Catholic speaker and author Gary Zimak

“Though scripture teaches us to avoid fear and be at peace, we are surrounded with a world that brings fear and anxiety, causing tremendous mental (and physical) suffering. Some attempt to “white knuckle” through it on their own. Others dabble, or go headstrong into New Age modalities to obtain relief, but ultimately find more suffering and complexity of the problem. Many seek out secular mental health treatment where anxiety and fear are viewed as a biological/genetic and psychosocial problem, and are treated with multiple medications and/or various types of psychotherapies very likely devoid of the Christian spiritual component so necessary to authentic healing. Seeking remedy itself can be very anxiety and fear provoking! What are we to do?

In conversational style, Gary masterfully weaves his personal experience with significant anxiety/fear with the gifts of the Catholic Church to forge a path to healing in From Fear to Faith: A Worrier’s Guide to Discovering Peace, showing us how to “…let Jesus do most of the work.” Whether you are an anxiety/fear sufferer, or a health care provider, or a priest/religious seeking resources, this book is for you! From Fear to Faith is definitely my newest go-to aid to bolster my professional practice, and to help those in need!”

Teresa Tomeo endorses From Fear To Faith: A Worrier's Guide To Discovering Peace, the latest book by Catholic Speaker and Author Gary Zimak

“Scripture tells us that ‘fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.’ But what kind of fear and how much fear is too much when it comes to our relationship with God and our efforts to live our lives as Catholic Christians? Drawing from his own personal struggles Gary Zimak combines experience with the expertise of solid Church teaching and God’s Word to address these important questions and more in this book. Given the many challenges facing believers today, this book is a must have for any one serious about becoming the person the Lord wants them to be.”

Here’s the latest endorsement for my new book (coming in August), From Fear to Faith: A Worrier’s Guide to Discovering Peace. Thank you, Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers!

Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers recommends From Fear To Faith, the new book by Catholic speaker and author Gary Zimak

“From Fear to Faith is an insightful and challenging look at how fear keeps us “running in place” in our faith, afraid to take that next step toward greatness. The reader will discover how worry and fear keeps us as lukewarm Catholics and not spirit-filled proclaimers of the Gospel. With vivid clarity, honesty and thoughtfulness, Gary Zimak draws from Sacred Scripture, practical wisdom, endearing personal stories, and timeless devotions to show how unwavering trust in the power of God’s love casts out all fear, heals wounds of sin and division, and opens our hearts to God’s will in our lives. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to take their faith to the next level—who is “stuck” in the abyss of fear and yearns to ascend toward the summit of enduring peace.
