Simply Holy 070: Finding Clean Catholic Fiction

Simply Holy 070: Finding Clean Catholic Fiction

September 22, 2021

Clean Catholic fiction seems like a paradox. Is it possible to write compelling fiction that is void of risqué innuendos, sensational violence, or occult characters? It certainly is possible, and award-winning author Amanda Lauer has done it with skill and finesse. Lauer has written a trilogy of young adult historical fiction that became so popular that a fourth book in the series will be published October 7, 2021. And there’s a fifth book in the works right behind it! In addition, she’s an accomplished journalist, screen writer, actress and model. Listen as Lauer shares about both her professional and spiritual journey, shows us how good Catholic fiction can be an instrument of holiness for readers, and what holiness means to her. To find Lauer online, go to AmandaLauer.com.

Reality Reflections with Kendra Von Esh - Has A Priest Asked You, ”Do You Pray?”

September 22, 2021
I have been asked this question a few times by priests at multiple times on my journey.  Sometimes my answer was "yes" sometimes it was "not really" and other times it was "I don't know how"....
Listen to this podcast, it is really important - because if we do not pray, we cannot stop sinning...

#annedesantis

About Anne (From Her Website): I am a Wife, Mother of two adult daughters, Catholic Author, Speaker, and a 55+ Model/ Actress from the Greater Philadelphia area. Although I had a career before motherhood, spending quality family time will always be one of the best decisions I have ever made. In 2014 at the age of 49, I started a journey in the modeling and acting realm and have been active in the field up to the present time. Previous to this, I had been a stay-at-home homeschooling Mom to my two daughters. Currently, I host a weekly TV show called " Journeys in Faith" on Fiat Ministry Network and Patchwork Heart Radio interviewing people doing good things and spreading faith! From 2018-2020 I hosted the weekly TV show called "The Positive Side" on RVNTV and interviewed amazing people doing work. My experience in the acting/modeling field ranges from background work in TV, local and national TV commercials, spokesperson work, QVC skincare progressionals, pharmaceutical ads, and online and print modeling and acting. I consider my roles as a commercial actress and model as a "hobby" and a great way to earn extra income for my family and in meeting new people. I have a standard with the work I accept in the field and do my best to accept jobs that reflect my life standards, goodness and positivity. With all of this said, I am honored to be the director for the St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation for Freedom, Family, and Faith since it is my primary profession. Serving the Lord in this way is an honor for me. It is a true gift to be able to help families and individuals through the work of this Catholic foundation. We are an expression and an application of the charism of the Mercedarian Religious Order. Since "Catholic" means universal, God's love is for all people. I try to reflect this belief in my interactions. Christianity is a life modeled after Jesus Christ who gave his life for others in order to bring life to the world through the gift of faith.

September 20, 2021

Questions Covered:

  • Can you explain the glory that we “give” God and does God need this glory? The idea of giving God glory is a little confusing. I know we are suppose to glorify God but never questioned what exactly that entailed.
