This week's podcast is with Sherry Weddell, author of 'Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus.' Sherry spent 15 years listening deeply to Catholics all over America and beyond before writing her book. She delves into essential themes that address the challenges faced by Catholics in deepening their faith and becoming intentional disciples of Jesus Christ.
In her book, Sherry addresses common obstacles that can hinder the growth of intentional discipleship within the Church and highlights the importance for each individual to prioritize a personal encounter with Jesus that transforms their lives and propels them to live as active witnesses to the Gospel.
This conversation will give you a greater understanding of the thresholds that need to be walked through in order to effectively form disciples in the Church.
