 Episode #99: Think of someone you know who's rejecting  Christ and Church, someone who likes taking selfies. "Who Do You Say I Am?" is an important new documentary about the Shroud of Turin. It shows scientifically and from the Catholic perspective why we can be sure that the Shroud of Turin is a selfie Jesus made of himself 1800 years before the invention of cameras. In this episode of Footsteps to Heaven, Terry Modica interviews producer Bill Snyder. Summing up the purpose for making this film, he points out its effect on non-believers and doubters: "Does that make a difference in your belief? Does that change your perspective on this?" The video available at https://gnm-media.org/evangelize-with-the-shroud-of-turin/. Subscribe to our Footsteps to Heaven website: https://footstepstoheaven.com/. Who else should hear this episode?

 Episode #98: How is your prayer life through the difficult times? Have you found that it’s less than it used to be? Maybe you’ve even said, “God’s not answering my prayers, so I might as well quit praying.” If you’ve reached the point where you feel like you can’t pray anymore, this message is for you. I'll share with you two secrets to praying when you feel discouraged and tired. If you feel like you can’t pray anymore because it doesn’t make a difference – you’re tired, you’re drained, you’re exhausted from putting in so much prayer effort, and so much effort into emotionally dealing with all the trials that are going on today in your life and in the world — if you find yourself in that situation: Just surrender. You don’t need words. That’s the first of two secrets to praying when you don’t feel like praying, which I explain how to do based on my own personal experiences. To get my book, "30 Days to the Father's Heart", go to https://30daystothefathersheart.com. To get the prayer book recommended in this episode, go to https://www.amazon.com/Prayers-That-Rout-Demons-Overthrowing/dp/159979246X The video and transcript are available at https://gnm-media.org/2-secrets-to-praying-when-you-dont-feel-like-praying Subscribe to our Footsteps to Heaven website: https://footstepstoheaven.com Who else should hear this episode?

 Episode #97: In this podcast episode I explain how we can be sure that God the Father never gives up trying to turn unbelievers to Jesus their Savior. He never abandons anyone until the point of death when they make their final choice. We can see this in Hebrews 4:12-16 (which tells us about the sword of the Spirit), in Job 36:5,8-12 (which reassures us, “He makes them listen to correction and commands them to repent of their evil,” and from Saint Alphonsus de Liguori (who tells us about the “veil” of deception getting lifted). Who are you praying for because you’re worried about their salvation? Imagine that person with nothing on their mind, nothing in their vision, nothing in their field of vision but the Holy Spirit and the truth and Jesus Christ presenting it to them, wielding the Spirit as a sword (a two-edged sword), would that person want to spend eternity with Jesus? That’s what the Holy Spirit does. That’s what the sword of the Spirit does…. The video and transcript are available at https://gnm-media.org/wielding-the-sword-of-the-spirit/ Subscribe to our Footsteps to Heaven website: https://footstepstoheaven.com/   Who else should hear this episode?

 Episode #96: When I looked at 1 John 5:14, it shocked me: “We have this confidence in God that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And we know that if he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then of course what we have asked for is ours.” Do I still believe it? The year that I’ve just had (2022) was the worst year of my life. So I said, “Lord, I need to understand this verse better.” That’s the challenge: To understand it better requires experience. When we read scripture and someone teaches it to us, we can hear it again and again but it doesn’t sink in to our heart unless we experience it. We don’t understand until it becomes real to us. I’m inviting you to join me in a prayer challenge that will help you experience the manifestation of the answers to your prayers in this crazy, horrible world. Today, at the start of the new year, choose one special prayer request. What yearning of your heart will bring you joy when God fulfills it so much that it becomes stable in your life? The video and transcript are available at https://gnm-media.org/take-the-1-john-514-prayer-challenge/ Subscribe to our Footsteps to Heaven website: https://footstepstoheaven.com/ Who else should hear this episode?

 Episode #95: Do you know how much your Father God loves you? Really, really, really loves you? Usually we don’t know that, because we project onto God the way human fathers have been, the way authority figures have been, the human failings that we’ve witnessed. Do you think God is disapproving of your sins? Do you think he is accusing you? The truth might surprise you.  A video of this and the transcript are available at https://gnm-media.org/do-you-know-how-much-the-father-loves-you/ Subscribe to our Footsteps to Heaven website: https://footstepstoheaven.com/ Who else should hear this episode?

 Do you feel this way? The writer of Psalm 77 laments, "I pray to God and yet I still feel troubled. I keep watching: My eyes are watchful for the Lord to do something, to bring an end to this misery, to answer my prayers, to intervene. And I am troubled and cannot speak." The next verse is key. This is the cure. This is the antidote for all this misery that the Psalmist just described: "I consider the days of old; the years long past I remember." We need to remember the past times when the Lord has come to our rescue. That's what the Treasure Box of Blessings is all about. I'll explain how to make one and show you what's in my box. A video of this and the transcript are available at https://gnm-media.org/make-a-treasure-box-of-blessings/ The "Faith Muscles Boot Camp" is available on the Udemy educational platform @ https://udemy.com/course/faith-muscles-boot-camp/learn/lecture/30769368#overview.  Subscribe to our Footsteps to Heaven website: https://footstepstoheaven.com/ Who else should hear this episode?

 Lent is meant for growing in holiness by repenting of our sins, but many of us are reluctant to face our sins because we simply don’t know that God the Father is cheering us on, like a Doting Daddy who sees the best in us. This Lent, take a journey that leads to a wonderfully close relationship with God the Father. Learn to see him as he really is. Know the joy that he feels for you. This episode is an edited recording of a live presentation to the Hearts on Fire prayer group, Springfield, Virginia, on March 1, 2022. A video of this and the transcript are available at https://gnm-media.org/feel-god-the-fathers-love-this-lent/ Subscribe to our Footsteps to Heaven website: https://footstepstoheaven.com/ Who else should hear this episode?

 When my husband Ralph and I went to the funeral of a neighbor who was a Jehovah’s Witness, the description of Heaven that we heard from the leader of the congregation was not one that we want to believe in. Ralph joins me in this episode to explain why and to give a much better description of the afterlife based on the teachings of the Catholic Faith and the Bible. Subscribe to our Footsteps to Heaven website: https://footstepstoheaven.com/ Who else should hear this episode?

Episode #85: When you do something foolish, do you feel embarrassed or do you feel Father God hugging you and comforting you? Do you feel stupid when you make a mistake or can you hear Father God reassure you that, "You're awesome", reassuring you that everything's going to be okay. Maybe you have a hard time forgiving yourself when you sin, even after going to Confession. Instead of beating yourself up, learn how to turn to God for self-confidence.

In this episode of Footsteps to Heaven, I want to share with you the secret to having faith that transforms the future, transforms the past, and -- more than that -- transcends it.  It's the secret to having such a profound relationship with God in order to have the joy that he wants for you right now.

Episode #82: Joy is a gift Jesus wants to give us as the antidote for the craziness of life. No matter how stressful or difficult life gets, and even in the best of times, putting Christ into the center of it always makes it much better. We can rejoice when we learn how to conquer the distractions of worry, fear, weariness, pain, and heartbreak by seeing Jesus smiling at you in the middle of it all. You too can have a joyful life no matter what’s going on around you or in politics or in the world! Remember, the key to having a joyful life is to see that Jesus is in the middle of everything. And if we can’t see him or if we know he’s there but we still feel anxious or fearful or depressed, we need to humble ourselves before him, repent and go to Confession for everything that distracts us from Jesus. And we need to spend more time praising him and worshiping him, which is most effective when done in person in front of the Tabernacle at church, during Mass, and in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
