GUEST SPEAKERS

"Do the Next Good Thing" - Kristen Soley

Kristen Soley, happy wife, mother of seven, blogger, public speaker, and author, knows that the path to holiness is through saying, “Yes!” to God daily! Celebrating twenty years of a blessed marriage with Nathan, helping to form their seven children (ages eighteen down to six) and homeschooling for the last fourteen years has been the center of Kristen’s world. With any extra time the Lord has afforded her, she has blogged, published two books, and spoken at a variety of conferences and retreats, encouraging women on their path to holiness through the vocation of wife and mother. In 2015, the Lord allowed Kristen to undergo great suffering; she was knocking on death’s door more than once. Kristen will share how, with trust, to do the next good thing.

"Virtue, Parenthood, and Habits that Inspire" - Katie Danielson

Katie Danielson serves as principal at Ave Maria Academy in Maple Grove, MN. Prior to this leadership position, she taught 5th-8th grade for seven years. Katie received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Saint Thomas and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Dayton. Katie and her husband, Mike, recently celebrated 10 years of marriage and have five children. Katie will encourage us in our efforts to form good habits in ourselves and our children, as well as give us practical ways to do it!

"Keeping Your Marriage First" - Deacon Alan and Anne Nicklaus

Alan and Anne Nicklaus were married 23 years ago at St. Raphael’s Church in Crystal, MN. Anne received all her Sacraments at St. Raphael's where the Boyle family belonged for over 60 years. As newlyweds, Alan and Anne returned to the parish of Alan’s childhood which is now Our Lady of Peace. They served as Confirmation teachers and engaged couple mentors as they welcomed five children into their family. Alan was ordained to the diaconate in December 2017 and assigned to All Saints in Lakeville as well as Prison Ministry. He is grateful for the opportunity to experience the Lord’s hand, His mercy and grace, and is honored and humbled to walk with his brothers and sisters in Christ. Come and hear Deacon Alan and Anne talk about how little things we can do on a daily basis will keep your marriage first amongst all the demands of parenting young children.
