Moses, a Ballerina and You…
Miraculously saved from death, an anti-Catholic converts; finds similarities between modern life and trials in Book of Exodus
Can the 3000 year-old saga of Moses and the Chosen People in Exodus possibly have any relevance to us today? It sure can!
Just think about what happed back then. The people of God were having a very difficult time. A leader rallied the people with a powerful promise of a better life in the promised land. But their journey proved to be far more difficult than imagined; the people’s commitment wavered and they lost their moral compass as they began to feel abandoned. Sound familiar?
Catholics@Work is proud to present Mrs. Christine Watkins, former ballerina for the San Francisco Ballet, and the beneficiary of a miraculous healing conversion to Catholicism, as our guest speaker at the April 8, 2014 breakfast forum.
Mrs. Watkins, MTS, LCSW, once was an anti-Christian atheist caught up in sin and the New Age movement. She converted to Catholicism after receiving a miraculous healing from Jesus through Mary, which saved her from death.
Abandoning her previous life as a professional ballet dancer with the San Francisco Ballet Company, Mrs. Watkins undertook a life of service to the Church. She now serves as a spiritual director, counselor, retreat leader, radio personality and national inspirational speaker. Her book, Full of Grace: Miraculous Stories of Healing and Conversion through Mary's Intercession, is a best seller. She will share with us the incredible story of her miraculous conversion.
Mrs. Watkins will show how great problems can become catalysts for building deeper relationships with God. “Today in America we are faced with many great personal challenges and many of us feel abandoned by God,” Mrs. Watkins says.
“But this is not a unique situation. The story of Exodus, although over 3000 years old, has amazing relevance to us today.” Mrs. Watkins will take us through a comparison of the challenges written of in Exodus and the challenges we face in America today.
John Dunican, president of Catholics@Work says, “Christine’s personal story is amazing and her comparison of the issues of our culture today to the Book of Exodus will change the way you look at problems. It will give you a unique perspective on your personal relationship with God.”
