TLI was the formation and fellowship I needed, especially after spending my 20s as a mainstream magazine journalist. Having experienced cancel culture at the hands of the secular media industry for my pro-life views, I was tempted to be a quiet Catholic. I lost work, friends, and confidence. But everything God stripped from my life; He continues to give back tenfold. I am now a content creator, a Catholic speaker and work for a Christian organization that advocates for God’s truths to flourish. My leadership commitment is to share my testimony to help encourage a bold – rather than quiet –Body of Christ.
