Father Donald Calloway on “From Fear To Faith”


 

Here’s the first of several endorsements for my new book (coming in August), From Fear to Faith: A Worrier’s Guide to Discovering Peace. I’m grateful to Fr. Calloway for his recommendation!

Father Donald Calloway endorses From Fear To Faith, the new book from Catholic Speaker and Author Gary Zimak

“One of my favorite passages in the New Testament is when Jesus tells his apostles the following: “In the world you have troubles; but be of good cheer, I have conquered the world” (Jn. 16:33). There is no doubt, as Jesus affirms, that we live in a troubled world that could give us much to worry about. Yet, our faith in the promises of Christ gives us the ability to overcome our fears and anxieties. In From Fear to Faith Gary Zimak gives both practical advice and biblical examples for helping us to have total confidence and trust in the goodness of our loving God. I highly recommend this book to all!”

I Finally Stopped Worrying. Here’s How I Did It…


 

Catholic speaker Gary Zimak explains how he stopped worrying

I got to thinking the other day and I came to a surprising realization…

I don’t worry anymore!

If you have heard me speak or read my books, you’ll understand why this is a monumental occurrence. It is a well known fact that I have been a severe worrier for most of my life. While I credit my anxiety with drawing me closer to the Lord, the act of worrying was having the opposite effect. The more I would worry, the less I would trust God. Now, despite two years of full time work as a Catholic Evangelist (with no guaranteed salary and literally living month to month), I have found myself in a position that I never thought possible. I don’t worry anymore!

So, what changed? How was I able to finally break free from worrying? The answer will probably surprise you, as it did me. For many years, I tried to stop worrying. I made up my mind many times over the years that I was going to “Let Go, Let God”, “Be Not Afraid” and “Let Not My Heart Be Troubled”. And I failed, and failed again and failed many times after that. It wasn’t until some time not that long ago that I realized that I was trying too hard. I know that it sounds crazy, but the reason that I couldn’t stop worrying is that I was trying too hard not to worry!

Before you think that Gary has officially lost his mind, let me finish the thought. I was trying to stop worrying by using the “mind over matter”, “positive thinking” approach and that’s why I failed. Even though I supplemented this method with a healthy dose of prayer, Bible reading and the Sacraments I couldn’t stop worrying. Then one day the answer dawned on me. I was trying so hard that I wasn’t letting Jesus help me. As is the case with most people who like control, I was so determined to fix the problem on my own that I wouldn’t let anyone, including the Lord, help me. Once I stopped trying so hard and let Jesus do the “heavy lifting”, my worrying decreased dramatically. Don’t get me wrong, I still experience fear and concern. These feelings are normal and can even be helpful, as they sometimes let you know that it’s time to take action. Worrying, on the other hand, is a useless and unproductive response to fear. While there are several correct ways to respond to fear, your overall objective should be to draw near to Jesus. He is the ultimate answer to any problem or difficulty that arises in your life.

If you feel that you’re too weak to give up worrying, you’re probably right. I’m in the same category. The good news is that the Lord knows that we’re weak and that we can’t just force ourselves to stop worrying. Instead, He wants us to stop trying to do it on our own and let Him help us. Take it from me, my friends, the easiest way for you to break free from anxiety is by focusing less on giving up worrying and more on Jesus. Doing this has made a huge difference in my life and has finally allowed me to stop worrying.

So where do you start? You start by speaking with Jesus daily and asking Him to take control of your life. Make it a point to read the Bible each day, even for a few minutes. The daily Mass readings are perfect for this. Additionally, receive the sacraments of Holy Communion as often as possible. Finally, turn to the Blessed Mother and ask her to assist you. As you grow closer to the Lord, your worrying will begin to decrease. If you need more assistance, I’m excited to announce that my next book, From Fear To Faith: A Worrier’s Guide To Discovering Peace (coming in August 2014 from Liguori Publications) will offer a step by step method for overcoming worry in your life. It’s a book designed for those of us who are weak and can’t do it on our own. Be sure to sign up for my monthly e-newsletter (in the sidebar to the right) for more details, including how to pre-order the book. I’ve also developed a new talk, “How To Stop Worrying TODAY” that I’ll be presenting in parishes around the county. Contact me to find out how to invite me to speak at your parish.

Don’t lose hope, my friends. I finally stopped worrying and you can too. Jesus is the answer and He is waiting to help you!

Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle on “Listen To Your Blessed Mother”


 

“In Listen to Your Blessed Mother, using Scripture and personal stories, author Gary Zimak takes us by the hand and unambiguously leads us to a greater appreciation of our Mother in heaven so that we might strive to imitate her virtues while allowing Mary to take us by the hand to her Son Jesus. Highly recommended!”

Listen To Your Blessed Mother Is Now Available!


 

This is a big week for me. On August 7th, I’ll be heading to the Catholic Marketing Network’s annual trade show. This year the show will take place in Somerset, NJ and I’ll be joining a “who’s who” of prominent Catholic authors and personalities as we come together to showcase our latest works. It will be a big thrill to officially debut my latest book, Listen To Your Blessed Mother, and to meet many of the retailers who will be carrying the book.

While at the trade show, I’ll be making several appearances (in person and on the radio). Here is my current schedule:

Author Reception (Grand Ballroom, DoubleTree Hotel)
Wednesday, August 7, 5:15 to 6:45 pm

Author Booth Signings (Liguori Booth #708)
Thursday, August 8th, 3:30 to 4:30 pm

Catholic Connection with Teresa Tomeo

Some people have asked me why I felt the desire to write a book about the Blessed Mother. Aren’t there already many books about Mary? To be totally honest, although several books have been written about Our Lady, there was a void. When I searched for a book that focused on Mary’s words in Scripture, I couldn’t find one. As a result, I felt called to write it. As I started to work on the project, I made the decision to also include all of Mary’s Biblical appearances, even when her spoken words were not recorded. The end result is that through this book, you’ll learn how to “hear” the Blessed Mother speak to you through the pages of the Bible. And her message is POWERFUL!

If you’ve ever wanted to get closer to Mary, if you want to better understand her words in Scripture or if you’re looking for a resource for your prayer group or Bible study, this book is for you. The reflection questions at the end of each chapter will help guide you, as you “listen” to Mary’s voice speaking directly to you. Order your copy (at a 25% discount) by going to the following link and remember to…

Listen To Your Blessed Mother!

“Biblical, personal, engaging, and thought provoking are just a few words that come to mind when reading this wonderful book! The Virgin Mary truly is our BLESSED Mother, and listening to her words in Scripture can help us to become blessed, too. Gary Zimak has done a great service for both Catholics and non-Catholics in offering a book that unpacks the biblical words of Mary in a very conversational and easy-to-follow style. The reflection questions and points to ponder at the end of each section will be of great benefit to the reader, too! I highly recommend this book!”
