|SOUND INSIGHT RADIO: CHANGING LIVES
Listen in on 1050AM (Seattle) or 970AM (Spokane)
Sound Insight, your dose of daily faith-filled inspiration and encouragement, is the most popular program on Sacred Heart Radio. We are heard by tens of thousands of listeners every weekday morning from 8:00-9:00 am in Seattle, Spokane and worldwide via internet streaming and downloadable programs. Here is a testimony from a faithful listener...
My pledge today is only a small way of repaying the huge debt I owe to you. Your show has sustained my faith when it would have faded and fallen. I've learned and grown so much through your presentations and discussions with other Sound Insight guests. I especially look forward to the Book Club with Fr. Nagel, Fr. Northrop and Pam Gunderson. In fact, I've been so inspired that I've read the books (for) myself... Your show is one of the faith-filled highlights of my day. Thanks for leading the way toward heaven while we're militantly fighting here on earth!

The Mass: Four Encounters With Jesus That Will Change Your Life
Dr. Tom Curran's first book has truly changed the lives of countless readers who are now seeing the Mass with new eyes. Here is one reader's comment:
The beauty of this book lies in Tom's simple, conversational approach-- as if friends sat down over a cup of coffee to discuss the Mass. We can all relate to the true-life stories he shares. By unveiling the Mass as a real and personal experience, he helps to open our eyes, ears, and hearts to this wonderful encounter with Christ. I wish this book had been available when I was a facilitator of the Confirmation program in our parish.
I will continue to use this book to redirect my focus, and to grow in my understanding of the Mass. And I will give this book to family and friends so they too can learn to deepen their experience and appreciation of the Mass.
In order to publish The Mass book we initiated My Catholic Faith Press, a division of Trinity Formation Resources. To achieve our goal to reach as many people as possible and open their eyes to the life-changing encounters with Christ available to them at Mass, we often give this book away or offer it at a significant discount. Please help us to continue to reach out to Catholics in these life-changing ways.
Confession: Five Sentences That Will Heal Your Life
Do you avoid going to Confession? Do you find the idea of going to Confession intimidating? Do you only go to Confession as part of your “Easter duty”? If you answered “Yes” to any or all of these questions, then this book is for you. The sacrament of Confession is fundamental to living life as a Catholic Christian disciple of Jesus. Yet Catholics are running from the confessional instead of to the confessional. Once you really understand what is happening in Confession, what you have been avoiding will become what you seek regularly - an encounter with God that will bring you a freedom and joy that this world cannot give and cannot take away - an encounter with God that will "heal your life".
