Gary Zimak

A New Catholic Morning Radio Show For Philadelphia!

 

Get Ready, Philly…

Your Mornings Are About To Get A Little Brighter!

Catholic Speaker Gary Zimak to host Spirit In The Morning On Holy Spirit Radio in Phialdelphia

I am very excited! As you probably know, I was born and raised in Philadelphia and have been eating soft pretzels, Tastykakes and cheesesteaks for as long as I can remember. I have experienced many ups and downs with the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers. I know and love the City of Brotherly Love!

Despite being ranked as the ninth largest radio market (according to the July 2016 Neilsen Audio Ratings), Philadelphia has never had a local Catholic morning radio show. That will change on October 10, 2016 when Spirit In The Morning comes to Holy Spirit Radio in Philadelphia!

Every Monday thru Friday at 7 AM Eastern, I’ll help you to start your day with a mix of music, Scripture and inspiration. And you better believe that I’ll offer hope to my fellow “worriers”! This is a show that I have wanted to do for a long time and soon it will become a reality. If you’re outside of the Philadelphia area, the show will stream live on Holy Spirit Radio and TuneIn Radio.

Finally, if you’re wondering about how this will affect my work as a full time Catholic evangelist, the answer is that nothing will change. I will still be traveling around the country giving talks and leading parish missions. I will still host The Gary Zimak Show on BlogTalkRadio and continue to do my various Catholic TV and Radio interviews. And my next book, Stop Worrying And Start Living! will be released in the Fall. Spirit In The Morning is just another way for me to spread the Good News.

Please keep me in your prayers as I get ready to begin this new project. I have a feeling that the Holy Spirit is up to something exciting!

Spirit In The Morning with Gary Zimak on Holy Spirit Radio

Start your day with a FRIEND!

Stop Worrying And Start Living!

 

Catholic speaker and retreat leader Gary Zimak will be leading a Pray, Hope and Don't Worry retreat at the Malvern Retreat House in Malvern, PA on August 5-7,2016

Are you tired of worrying?

Would you like to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, I invite you to join me for the 2nd Annual “Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry” retreat at the Malvern Retreat House on Aug 5 – 7, 2016. In addition to Mass, Confession and plenty of time to spend in prayer and meditation, I will be giving five brand new talks – all designed to help you stop worrying and start living!

Once again, the retreat will be held at the beautiful McShain-Horstmann Family Life Center located at the Malvern Retreat Center in the Philadelphia suburbs. Click HERE to register today. Last year’s retreat sold out and I expect that this year’s will also. I look forward to seeing you in August.

Get ready to…

Stop Worrying And Start Living!

How Mother Angelica And EWTN Saved My Life

 

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

Catholic speaker and author Gary Zimak at EWTN studios

On May 2, 2014, I was invited to give a talk to a group of Catholic leaders in Birmingham, AL. In attendance were many of my heroes, including Catholic TV/Radio personalities, EWTN executives and founders of Catholic ministries from around the world. At first, I was overwhelmed. What could I possibly offer to these individuals? I was relatively new to full time ministry and (in my opinion) hardly successful. Since the conference was sponsored by EWTN, I decided to talk about Mother Angelica and how she inspired me to get to know Jesus and to respond when I felt Him calling me to full time ministry. I shared how Mother helped me to keep going, even when I felt like quitting. As a tribute to the life of Mother Angelica, I am sharing a transcript of my talk with you. Even if you are not involved in full time ministry, there is a message here for you. Jesus loves you and wants to be your friend. He is the answer to any problem you will ever face and through Him you can have eternal life in Heaven. As you grow closer to the Lord, you may be asked to carry a cross or take on a task that seems impossible. That is never the case. The life of Mother Angelica gives us proof that all things are possible with God!

Walking By Faith With Mother Angelica


(Transcript of a talk by Gary Zimak to a gathering of Catholic leaders in Birmingham, AL on May 2, 2014)

After being asked to do this talk, I was concerned. What can I say to a room full of All-Stars? Then I realized that I do have a very important message and it’s one that only I can deliver. It’s the story of how I’m trying to follow God’s plan for my life even though, on the surface, it doesn’t make sense. It’s a message that I hope will inspire you to continue doing what you’re doing and to remind you that “with God, all things are possible”! As the author of “A Worrier’s Guide To The Bible” and “From Fear To Faith” and someone who travels around the country speaking about overcoming anxiety, I feel a little funny admitting this, but…

I have a BIG FEAR!

What makes me feel a little more comfortable is that someone I admire greatly also has the same fear. I’d like to share a quote from that person and let’s see if you know who it is…

“I’m not afraid to fail, because I’ve always learned something when I failed. I’ll tell you what I’m afraid of – and when I think about it I break into a cold sweat – I’m scared to death of dying and having the Lord say to me, ‘Angelica, this is what you might have done had you trusted more’. I’m petrified of that.”

My Story

Let me tell you my story…

I have suffered from anxiety from the time that I was very young. I am a hypochondriac, a coward, I love comfort and I am not a risk taker. I am a cradle Catholic who up until late 2004 (with the exception of a few brief periods) was very lukewarm about my faith and had no personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I went to Mass each week and was too lazy to even pursue other denominations. In late 2004, a mystery ailment scared me and I thought that I was going to die. I knew that I wasn’t a good Catholic and was afraid to be judged. I was determined to learn more about my Catholic Faith. I began to listen to EWTN Radio, watch EWTN TV, attend daily Mass and pray the Liturgy of the Hours.

A couple of interesting things happened…

I felt great peace even though I still thought I was going to die.

I started out thinking I was going to learn more about my Catholic Faith and become a better Catholic, but I also ended up meeting and growing to love JESUS CHRIST!

Eventually, the symptoms went away and no diagnosis was ever made. I resolved never to go back to my lukewarm way of life.

In 2008, I felt the need to share what I learned with other lukewarm Catholics and FollowingTheTruth.com was created. I started blogging, doing numerous EWTN radio/TV programs and signed a contract to write a book, all while working full time as a project manager. I began to feel a call to work full time for the Lord and went on numerous Church related job interviews, getting turned down for each one. My wife Eileen and I prayed that I could work full time for the Lord, however, we thought that it would be in some sort of traditional job.

In January 2012, our prayers were answered in an unexpected way. I was laid off! For the first time in 30 years, I was not collecting a weekly paycheck.

Eileen and I prayed about it and reached the decision that I should do the “impossible” – become a FULL TIME Catholic Evangelist. In my mind, it was “impossible” to make a full time living and support my family as a Catholic Evangelist, but this is what I felt the Lord was calling me to do. The first year was difficult for me, as I struggled to obtain paid speaking engagements. Fortunately, we had some savings. I continued to pray and asked the Lord to “let it all fall apart” if it wasn’t His will for me. New doors kept opening up, but very little money was coming in.

At The End Of My Rope

Last year, I attended this conference for the first time and I was very discouraged. I was just about out of money, had very few speaking engagements lined up and spoke to several of you saying the same thing:

“My apostolate is on life support. Anything you can do to help me get more speaking engagements would be greatly appreciated”.

When I arrived home, I spoke with my spiritual director and he thought that maybe the Lord was telling me that it’s time to move on and get a more traditional job. He told me to pray about it and give it a little more time. I decided to take a ride to one of my favorite places, The Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown, PA. As I sat in front of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament and glanced at the image of Our Lady with the Baby Jesus, a very strong message came to me:

“It’s going to be okay”.

While I still didn’t have any new speaking engagements or guarantees, I left there feeling that I was doing what God wanted me to do and things would somehow work out for me.

Mother Angelica To The Rescue

I decided that I should finally read Mother Angelica’s biography so that I could look for signs that I was on the right or the wrong track. After all, she was asked by the Lord to do “the impossible” and maybe I could learn from her story. Before I read the book, I assumed that everything always worked out perfectly as she built EWTN. I thought that if God wants you to do something, then everything just falls into place. I thought that if you run into problems and that you don’t get a lot of donations or if you’re not booked solidly for the next year then the Lord is telling you it’s time to move on. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Mother Angelica failed sometimes. I also learned that the network that the network was on “life support” many times. The most important lesson that I learned from Mother is that quitting is not an option. I asked myself the question, “Did I really give it my best shot?” I kept saying I did, but did my actions support my words?

I needed to make sure that I truly “gave it my best shot”and realized that there were still some things that I could do. I started mailing books, letters, making phone calls and networking. I also kept praying and asking Our Lady and Our Lord for guidance. By the grace of God, I am still working in full time ministry. We live month to month, but my family and I have never been more peaceful. We are all learning what it means to TRULY trust in God and I will not quit. I’m willing to fail or be defeated, but I won’t quit until I have done all that I can.

If God Brings You To It, He Will See You Through It!

Many of you know this, but I’m going to say it anyway. The fact that I’m able to be here today and address you is proof that if God asks you to do something, He will give you what you need to do the job. My job (and your job) is to let Him work through us.

I also want to emphasize that I am doing something which the world says is “impossible”. I have a business degree. I have no radio, television or writing credentials. I am a shy person by nature who has always been afraid to speak in public. On the surface what I’m doing for a living makes no sense, but somehow it’s working.

I can totally relate to Mother Angelica’s statement, “We don’t know what we’re doing, but we’re getting pretty good at it.”

I know my work will come to an end one day, as will yours. My goal is to make sure that I don’t quit due to lack of trust. I pray every day that I will continue to say “Yes”, just like Abraham, just like Moses, just like Our Lady, just like Mother Angelica did and just like each of you. Through my two plus years in full time ministry, I have learned a valuable lesson. It’s a lesson that I try to learn better each day. It’s a lesson that Mother learned and lived every day:

“Never put a lid on God. You can’t give God a thimble and ask for a quart. It won’t work. Your plans, your projects, your dreams have to always be bigger than you, so God has room to operate.”

Final Thoughts

Now I would like to briefly speak to each of you. No matter how successful your apostolates are, you have probably experienced moments of discouragement. You may be tempted to give up, thinking that you’re not making a difference. I’m here to tell you that you ARE making a difference and many of you have impacted my life. I’d like to speak to those of you who are involved in any way with EWTN. Mother Angelica has expressed the opinion that the whole network may have been created to help one soul. I would like to thank you for being a part of that network and to let you know that EWTN has saved my soul. Without EWTN, not only would I not be addressing you today, but I would never have gotten to know Jesus personally.

Thank you for saving my life, Mother Angelica. I will continue to do my best to continue your work of bringing souls to Jesus Christ. May you rest in peace.

“You may be the only Jesus your neighbor will ever see.” (Mother Angelica)

My Greatest Fear

On January 6, 2012 one of my greatest fears came true. For the first time in my 30 year career in software development, I was laid off. Even though I was feeling the call to work for the Lord (although I didn’t know exactly how), the layoff hit me like a ton of bricks. We had just started homeschooling a few months before and I was the sole provider for my family. Looking back now, however, what seemed like the “end of the world” turned out to be one of my greatest blessings.

While I had a desire to do the Lord’s work, I expected to be working for a church, a diocese or an organization and wanted to do it on my terms. I was very comfortable receiving a bi-weekly paycheck and I didn’t want that to change. Apparently, God had other plans. After receiving encouragement from my amazing wife (Eileen), we decided to “go for it”. I would try to earn a living as a full time Catholic evangelist with no guarantee of any salary.

Although I was blessed to be able to appear on several Catholic radio shows and do some blogging prior to my layoff, I never earned one penny for my work. Now, I would need to find a way to bring in money in a hurry! My first book (A Worrier’s Guide To The Bible) was scheduled to be released in October of 2012 and I started accepting speaking engagements, but the first year was incredibly difficult. Things gradually got better over the course of the second, third and fourth years, but it was still very challenging.

My Greatest Blessing

Today, I celebrate my fourth year in full time ministry. And, while my family and I still live month to month, I have seen God do amazing things in my life. Over the past four years, I have proclaimed the “Good News” throughout the United States and Canada. I am currently finishing the manuscript for my 6th book. I am a regular guest on EWTN TV and Radio, host two radio programs and appear frequently on local Catholic radio stations around the country. Incredibly, I have also become the leading Catholic speaker on overcoming anxiety.

How is it possible for a former lukewarm Catholic and lifelong worrier to be sharing the gospel on a full time basis for the past four years? How could someone who worked in the corporate world for 30 years now be spreading the “Good News” for a living? The answer is simple. I owe everything to the Lord. A little over ten years ago, I encountered Jesus in a big way. I felt like St. Paul on the road to Damascus. That meeting changed my life. Little by little, He has lead me down this path. I have experienced successes and I have experienced failures, but He has opened many doors for me. God has done “the impossible” in my life over and over.

What Keeps Me Going

I’ve been asked what keeps me going when it’s so difficult to survive in full time Catholic ministry. For one thing, I am always looking for signs that God is blessing my work (new book contracts, speaking engagements, positive feedback). This is a critical step in discerning the Lord’s will. As a husband and father, I must provide for the needs of my family. If the day comes when I can no longer do that through my full time ministry, I know that God is telling me to move on.

What else keeps me going and helps me to deal with the uncertainty that I face each day? There are two Bible passages that echo in my mind constantly:

The first one is the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30). We have all been given talents and are expected to use them to advance God’s kingdom on earth. On the day of our judgment, we will have to answer for how we used the skills God gave us. What is so striking about this parable is that the wicked servant wasn’t punished for what he did, but for what he didn’t do. Because he was afraid, he buried his talent in the ground instead of investing it. This message really gets my attention.

The second passage comes from Psalm 95, which I pray every morning as part of the Liturgy of the Hours:

O that today you would listen to his voice! Harden not your hearts, as at Meribah, as on the day of Massah in the wilderness, when your fathers tested me, and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work. (Psalm 95:7-9)

Over the past four years, I have seen the Lord work numerous miracles in my life. I know what He can do. He has always been there for me in the past. How could I not trust Him with my future?

What I Have Learned

I firmly believe that if God asks us to do something, He will give us what we need to get the job done. I also believe that He can do all things, including taking a shy, apathetic, software developer and using him to spread the gospel message in a very public way. If He can use me, He can use you too. Don’t ever dismiss the thought that you might be called to work for Him in some way. Take time to carefully discern what you feel you’re being called to do. Watch for doors to open and learn to be patient. You never know what He might have planned for you!

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!

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.

2. From Fear To Faith – Are you tired of worrying? After struggling to overcome anxiety for many years, Gary Zimak has learned that Jesus Christ can help us to win this battle. In this talk, based on his best-selling books A Worrier’s Guide To The Bible and From Fear To Faith, Gary will share his step by step approach for breaking free from worry by encountering Christ in His Church.

3. What If Mary Said “No”? – We often assume that Mary had to say “yes” when asked to become the Mother of the Savior. In reality, the Blessed Mother’s assent was a conscious choice on her part. In this talk, based on Gary’s book, Listen To Your Blessed Mother, we’ll look closely at Mary’s life and learn how to imitate her constant “yes” to the Lord. You’ll also discover how Mary can lead you closer to Jesus than you ever thought possible.

4. 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!

5. What Does God Want Me To Do? – As someone who went from a secure career as a project analyst to an uncertain future as a Catholic lay evangelist, Gary knows what it takes to discern God’s will. How do I know what the Lord is calling me to do? How can I learn to hear Him speak in a noisy world? How can I learn to trust in His providence? All these questions (and more) will be answered in this talk, based on Gary’s own personal journey and detailed in his book Faith, Hope, And Clarity: How To Know God’s Will. You’ll learn that it is possible to hear God speak and experience peace in the midst of uncertainty. This peace can be experienced only by surrendering to the Lord’s will.

This retreat is open to both men and women and is designed to help you to finally break away from worrying by growing closer to the Lord. We will be staying in the beautiful Family Life Center (A one-story facility with 50 air-conditioned rooms with private baths for individuals, couples and family members. Each room has a double bed and a single bed and a private bath. Four rooms are fitted for wheelchair accommodation, and contain one double bed).The cost for the weekend retreat (including meals and lodging) is only $225.
