Dynamic Catholic Study Guides
A Deeper Experience
Jesus said to Peter, “Put out into the deep water and lower your nets for a catch” (Luke 5:4). And he says the same thing to each of us at different times in our lives. The world wants you to live a shallow life obsessed with things that are superficial. God wants you to go deeper so you can discover what matters most and live every day with passion and purpose.
Our spiritual journey is best made in community. We all need people to experience life with. People to encourage us, challenge us, walk with us, and hold us accountable.
If you really want to grow spiritually, join a small faith group. If you can’t find one to join – start one! Meet once a week or once a month. Pray together. Read the Scriptures together. Read great books together. Seek answers to questions, together!
These study guides provide an easy to follow format for small faith groups. We hope they will help you cast your nets into the deep!

Ordinary Lives Extraordinary Mission
These are difficult times for the Catholic Church and the United States of America. There is only one solution to the problems we face… saints! Becoming a saint is a choice, and we must begin choosing the saint within each of us. The biggest crisis of our time is not economic, health care, or vocations, but is an identity crisis. We have forgotten our mission to become saints and forgotten our story as Catholics. We must rediscover that mission and hold each other accountable to accepting responsibility for that mission.
Business as usual is not going to cut it. We need heroic Catholicism. Everything we need to accomplish our mission is in the Church… but the Catholic Church is a sleeping giant. It is time we wake the sleeping giant! This book is a five step guide to choosing the saint within you. The world doesn’t need another John Paul II or Mother Teresa. The world needs you.
