The pressure to become a successful college applicant affects the lives of young people earlier than ever before. Parents start worrying about college and success for their kids are even born. Schools feel the demands to prepare their students as competitive candidates with high test scores and all the right courses. Webinar for Ave Maria Press.

Recent research shows that the single greatest difference between those who identify as Catholic and those as former-Catholics is "the belief that God is a personal being involved in the lives of people today." If we are to shape our whole lives as a Christian story, we must first learn how to recognize, craft, and share stories of grace about particular life experiences. Part of Ave Maria Press webinar series.
