I have searched and prayed for a Bible study that would bring me to better understanding of my Catholic faith. My local parish didn't offer anything - I searched and prayed. Then, driving to drop kids off at school I heard Sonja Corbitt on the Catholic Channel - prayers answered!!! Easy to understand, easy to follow, inspiring and educational. Delivered directly to my in box for me to listen to when convenient for me- God answers prayers!
