Small, But Mighty!

I had my first speaking event a couple of nights ago at Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Ventura where I not only attend Mass everyday, but also work as the Wedding Coordinator. I felt so safe and secure having the event here since it's my "home away from home". I felt like I was trying out my "material" in front of my family, before heading out into the world! I have been preparing for this event for a couple of months. I prayed to the Holy Spirit to help me to be calm and clear and be able to express myself in the best way and I was trying to not have too many expectations about it...but I DID! I was hoping to draw a huge group so I could spread the word about my love and devotion to Christ!

Hours prior to this event, I felt Satan actively trying to "rock my boat". I felt him discouraging me. I felt him trying to knock me down and doubt myself and make me feel bad about myself. I rebuked him and didn't let his tricks get under my skin. I'm prepared for him to try this... any and every time I want to spread the word from the housetops. It isn't going to work. I have the Lord on my side!

As it turned was a small, but mighty group that attended! I was met with such a warm welcome! I appreciated everyone taking time to come to the event to hear me speak and to have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. At first, I was a little sad that more people didn't come...but as it turned out...the people that DID come, really filled me up with such encouragement, hope, happiness and joy! I know that everything happened that night exactly how God wanted. I know Jesus was right there with me the whole time. I felt so safe in His hands! As a matter of fact, when I was sitting praying before the event in front of the corpus...I could actually see Jesus breathing on the cross. It was so beautifully powerful to me! It confirmed my purpose! It gave me such inspiration!

After the event, I got such love and support from the people that came...Quality people who share a love and devotion to Christ! My kind of people!

I am excited to be able to do this more and more! I want to throw out a large net and draw as many people as I can to the church and Christ! I'm a Woman on a Mission! Come along with me...won't you??!!

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.
