Topics covered include taking ownership of your faith life on campus, maintaining balance in life to increase chances of success on campus, finding a Catholic community on campus, giving back through service work, discerning your vocation, taking advantage of social media and avoiding its pitfalls, and using church documents and spiritual writings to deepen your faith life.
Matthew Swaim works at Sacred Heart Radio in Cincinnati, Ohio and is the producer of "The Son Rise Morning Show," a nationally syndicated program on the EWTN global Catholic radio network. He holds a B.S. degree in Media Communications (2002) from Asbury College.
Though serving in many non-Catholic Christian ministries prior to his conversion, Swaim entered the Catholic Church during the Easter Vigil of 2005, and his "zeal of conversion" brings an added excitement to his practice of the faith.
He and his wife Colleen reside in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Colleen Swaim is a teacher of religion and English in the Diocese of Covington, Kentucky, who encourages in young adults an understanding of the intense radicalism of sanctity and the dreary dullness of sin.
