Pray, Hope & Don’t Worry Retreat A Big Success!

 

Catholic speaker and author Gary Zimak is available to speak at your parish or conference

Catholic speaker, author and retreat leader Gary Zimak recently led a Pray, Hope and Don't Worry retreat at the Malvern Retreat House

“Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled.” (John 14:1)

On August 14 – 16, I had the pleasure of leading the first ever Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry retreat at the Malvern Retreat House in the Philadelphia suburbs. We had over 50 individuals who came from all over the country to spend 3 days moving away from anxiety and closer to Jesus. It was an amazing weekend and provided us with the opportunity to withdraw from the craziness of the world and spend time in the presence of Our Lord. As I have discovered in my own life, spending time with Jesus (through prayer, Scripture and the Sacraments) is the best way to stop worrying and experience peace.

In case you missed the retreat, all of my talks (a total of five) will soon be available on CD and MP3 download. In the very near future, I’ll be announcing how you can purchase them.

Want some even better news? Because this retreat was such a success, I have been invited by Malvern to lead it again in the Summer of 2016! I’ll announce the date once it’s finalized, so stay tuned for more information!

Heading To Alabama To Talk About The Blessed Mother!

If you’re in the Birmingham, AL area I hope you can join me on Wednesday, August 19 at Our Lady Of Sorrows parish. I’ll be speaking about the power of Marian Consecration. On October 7, 2011 I consecrated my life to Jesus through Mary and the results have been amazing. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Please join us for this special evening if you can. You won’t regret it!

Also, on September 4, I’ll once be leading the 33 day preparation for Total Consecration on my nightly BlogTalkRadio show. This is the fifth consecutive year that we’ve done it and I’d love you to join us. Stay tuned for details!

After being tempted in the desert, Jesus began His ministry in Galilee by quoting the words of the prophet Isaiah:

“The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned.” (Matthew 4:16)

My friends, there is no need to be afraid or to remain in the darkness. Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, is with us! For close to four years, I have been delivering that message to parishes and conferences throughout the United States and Canada and lives are being changed. By presenting the Lord’s message (as contained in Scripture and through the teachings of His Church) and sharing how He has helped me to overcome severe anxiety, I have been blessed to bring thousands of individuals closer to Jesus Christ. But I want to do more…

I want to bring the life changing message of Jesus Christ to your parish or conference!

I am currently booking speaking engagements for 2016 (and beyond), but I still have some openings for Fall and Winter of 2015. In addition to my regular speaking topics, I have developed 3 new topics that I know will help draw people closer to the Lord:

You Can’t Walk On Water If You’re Sitting In The Boat! – Did you ever feel like God is asking you to do something, but you’re afraid? That’s perfectly normal. Whenever the Lord asks us to do anything, there is always some element of fear involved. There’s no reason to let fear stop you from letting God work great miracles in your life, however. In this talk, Gary will give you practical advice for conquering even your greatest fears and teach you how to surrender control of your life to the Lord!

How To Live One Day At A Time – Regretting the past and worrying about the future can make us very anxious. And, while it sounds simple, living “one day at a time” is often easier said than done. In this talk, you will learn how it is possible to live joyfully in the present moment. Using the “1-2-3″ method that has worked in his life, Gary will show you how to live one day at a time!

Getting Personal With Jesus – Many people go through life knowing about Jesus, but never get to know him personally. Sadly, many Catholics don’t even know that it’s possible to have a close, personal relationship with Christ. Using some of the techniques featured in his soon to be released book on the topic, Gary will give you practical suggestions for becoming close friends with the Lord. In addition, you’ll discover why it’s critical that you share Jesus with others and learn simple ways to do so.

As with all of my topics, these titles can be presented as a 3 day parish mission, a single day retreat or a 1 hour talk. Please visit my Speaking page or email me to find out more information, check my availability for a particular date or book an engagement.

Don’t be content to walk in the darkness and think that there is no hope. With Jesus Christ in your life, you can walk in the light and remain hopeful. Skeptical? Let me help you. Contact me today and let me deliver the “Good News” in person!

Meet me at Holy Rosary Church on April 14 at 7 PM and let’s discuss!

From Fear To Faith On Catholic Answers Live!


 

Catholic Speaker and Author Gary Zimak on Catholic Answers Live with Patrick Coffin

While on a speaking tour in Southern California last week, I had the pleasure of visiting the headquarters of Catholic Answers Live.

Although I have appeared on the program several times in the past, this was the first time that I was able to do the show live in the studio. We discussed how to move From Fear To Faith and you can listen to the podcast at the following link:

Catholic Answers Live with guest Gary Zimak – September 12, 2014 (From Fear To Faith)

I’m Heading To California…Want To Come Along?


 

Catholic Speaker Gary Zimak launches his Fall "From Fear To Faith" tour by visiting Southern California

This week is going to be a busy one for me. On Tuesday, September 9, I’ll be traveling to Southern California to officially kick off my Fall “From Fear To Faith” speaking tour. While I’m there, I will speak to two Legatus chapters (Sept 10 and 11) and appear live in studio on the radio program, Catholic Answers Live (Friday Sept 12 at 6 PM Eastern). In addition, I’m currently leading the yearly 33 day preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary on my daily Following The Truth radio show (I’ve pre-recorded this week’s episodes).

Please keep me in your prayers as I travel to bring the “Good News” of Jesus Christ to a world very much in need of hearing His message. I’ll be documenting my travels on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. If you’d like to keep track of me, you can follow me by clicking on the appropriate link (or the icons just to the right of this post).

Contact me if you’d like me to speak at your parish or conference. It would be an honor to bring the Lord’s message to your town!

God Bless,
Gary

Be Not Afraid…To Homeschool!


 

Catholic speaker and author Gary Zimak talks about the anxiety associated with homeschooling

When Eileen and I first decided to homeschool our daughters, I have to admit that we were frightened. Although we were nervous, however, we moved forward because we felt that God was calling us to do it. After completing three years as homeschooling parents (I’m the Religion teacher!), we realize that it’s one of the best things we ever did. Homeschooling is not only providing Mary and Elizabeth with a great education, but has drawn us closer as a family and closer to the Lord.

Here’s the “Be Not Afraid…To Homeschool” talk that I recently presented at a homeschooling conference in New Jersey. Whether you’re dealing with homeschooling worries or anxiety in general, this theme of this talk will help you to experience peace in your life. Nothing that happens in your life comes as a surprise to the Lord. Everything (good and bad) is designed to help you get to Heaven. Best of all, He will NEVER abandon you…

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it!

Please contact me if you would like me to deliver this talk (or any of my talks) at your parish or conference!

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


 

Catholic Speaker Gary Zimak instructing a parish audience on how to overcome anxiety

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)
