…Speaking of the Glory of God!
Nate was invited to speak to the 7th and 8th graders at Nouvel Catholic School on May 17, 2019. He told them all about his bull riding experience while offering some good advice. He encouraged the kids to develop a deeper relationship with God and to stay close to Him throughout their life.
He shared with the kids how he drifted away from his faith while a teenager and became a rebel. He said that religion seemed ‘uncool’ at the time and admitted that, “…work and hanging with my friends became my top priority. Because of this, I did not have much time for God or my family.”
Nate then shared how a bull changed his rebel ways when it stomped on him, nearly ending his life. He said that although he was given less than a five percent chance to recover from his internal injuries, God spared him, giving him a second chance to mend his ways.
Nate said, “I now see that having a strong faith does not prevent me from enjoying life. Last year, for example, I went skydiving. It was a blast! Although I still do fun things, since the accident I have developed a closer relationship with God. Because of this, I am so much happier.”
Nate wrapped up the talk by encouraging the kids to take their faith seriously because you never know when God will call you back home (to heaven). He said, “Remember, not everyone gets a second chance.”
I would like to thank Good Shepard Catholic Radio for featuring Finding Hope on Vegas during their fundraiser event. Sports enthusiast and host, Frank Pomarico, and Nathan discussed various aspects of bull riding as a sport, the accident, and Nate’s incredible recovery.
Frank hosts a weekly sports show, Sports Round Table. You can check it out on Sunday afternoons from 2:00-3:00pm on 93.3 FM or 1015 AM.
Blessings All…I am excited to announce Finding Hope on Vegas will be in Jackson, MI, at the Queen of the Miraculous Medal Church for the annual Catholic Authors of Michigan event on March 30, 2019.

A big shout out to Cherie Sanderson from the Boulder Junction Library for hosting Finding Hope on Vegas. I am very thankful for the opportunity to speak about this miraculous story to such wonderful community! If your local stop by and say ‘Hi!’
If you have never been to Boulder Junction, Wisconsin, I encourage you to visit. There are so many friendly people in this quaint town.

There are so many talented artists in the area who are more than happy to share their craft with visitors. I highly recommend a visit, you won’t be disappointed!

I had a lovely afternoon on Friday, May 18, 2018. BCLS invited Finding Hope on Vegas to their Booked For Lunch event.
There was a nice turnout and some great discussion about God and miracles after the presentation. Because many people lingered to talk, the cleaning crew patiently waited for me to finish the book signing. They simply smiled and said ‘No hurries.’ What a great crew!
As a bonus, some family and friends I do not get to see very often came.
Thanks to the Booked for Lunch Staff at Alice and Jack Wirt Public Library for a wonderful day!

What a fantastic Saturday, thanks to a wonderful group of people from Our Lady of Hope Parish in Clare, MI. A big shout out to Donna and her team of ladies who arranged for me to present Finding Hope on Vegas to a large crowd. During the presentation we discussed the types of prayer and how it is instrumental in helping people deal with life’s unexpected.
After the presentation the ladies provided a delightful brunch which allowed me to meet many people and hear their own touching stories.
As a bonus, I sold more than fifty Finding Hope on Vegas books. I am humbled by such a response! God is good! May the Good Lord continue to bless Our Lady of Hope Parish as they strive to bring others to Christ.
