Gary Zimak on tour

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)

Here’s One Of The Reasons I’m Grateful For My Struggle With Anxiety


 

Catholic Speaker Gary Zimak addressing the St. Maria Goretti Altar Rosary Society at the annual Ladies Candlelight Dinner in Carmel, Indiana

Here’s a nice article about yours truly written by Kevin Cullen for The Catholic Moment, the newspaper of the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana. Kevin was in attendance on the night that I spoke at the annual Saint Maria Goretti Ladies Candlelight Dinner and he did a great job covering the highlights of my talk. I have already heard from someone who wasn’t at the talk, but was comforted by the message in the article.

I am extremely grateful to be able to travel around the country sharing the “Good News” of Jesus Christ. I’m also grateful for my lifelong struggle with anxiety because it has brought me closer to Jesus and allows me to relate to and help my fellow “worriers”. While I was employed as a computer programmer, I never thought I would be working for the Lord on a full time basis. Now that I’m doing it, however, I can’t picture myself doing anything else!
