Fresh Choice (Part 1 of 4)

Updated: Aug 28, 2023

I really struggle with making choices. Usually when they are things like, what to eat for dinner, what to watch on TV, what to do for entertainment. I actually prefer (most of the time) for someone else to make the decision about those things.

I don't, however, struggle to make choices about having a positive attitude. I choose to wake up in a hopeful, optimistic mood. I choose to take my time getting ready in the morning by waking up incredibly early so I can be calm while preparing for the day. I choose to attend Mass everyday to feed my soul. I choose to go on a walk to get fresh air and exercise. I choose to take communion to my friend, Iris a couple of times a week to help her feel connected and fed by Christ. I choose to do my job to the best of my ability. I choose to support and care for my husband. I choose to care and support myself by doing healthy things for my mind, body & spirit.

I also choose to not do negative things. I choose to not be angry, upset, jealous and hurtful. I've had to work on these...but I am consciously choosing not to have those feelings. I choose to not do harmful things to my body. I choose to not smoke, do drugs, eat unhealthy food (maybe sometimes) or drink to excess. I want to take good care of this body the Lord has blessed me with. It's the only one I've got...or will ever have!

I encourage you to make a sincere effort to "make good choices"! You and those around you will certainly benefit!

About Me


I’m Lori Balderas, I created this podcast for those who are converting, reverting or simply want a FRESH perspective of the Catholic faith to help them to open their hearts and minds to become closer to the love and goodness of Christ.

I converted to Catholicism at the age of 49.  It was, by far, the best decision I’ve ever made! I don’t claim to be an expert or Theologian, but what I DO know is that my heart is bursting with love for the Lord and I want others to feel the same way!  

I feel impassioned and drawn to Evangelize people by sharing my experiences and transformation that have gotten me where I am today.

I will be sharing my personal conversion story and speaking with others about theirs.
