Catholic Convert, Speaker, Evangelist
Barbara Heil has an inspiring story to tell.
Raised in an un-churched family, she fell in love with Jesus Christ as an adult in a Pentecostal community. She is grateful for the gifts she received there - a deep knowledge of the Bible, and a life of prayer, worship and devotion.
Her husband, a Pentecostal minister, died in 2007. In 2013 she became the joyful wife of Jeff, her partner in life as well as her ministry.
For reasons she attributes to the Holy Spirit, Barbara was prompted to attend the Catechetical Institute with Jeff Cavins. While reading the very first page of the Catholic Catechism, she knew in her heart that she was reading the truth.
To her dismay, her path to Catholicism had begun. It was a ten year journey. Now she is not not only in love with Jesus, but the Church that he founded.
Her life's calling, with the help of the Holy Spirit, is to guide others into an intimate relationship the the Lord.
"You are not an accident. God planned for you to be here and you have a mission."
