HOLDREGE (SNR) – The podcasting duo of “Go Forth with Heather and Becky” will make their television debut on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) Aug. 3.
Heather McQuillan and Becky Deaver, members of All Saints Parish in Holdrege have been invited to be guests on the show, “At Home with Jim and Joy.” Jim and Joy are a Catholic couple whose live daytime TV show focuses on marriage, family and pro-life issues. Heather and Becky will discuss their podcast, “Go Forth with Heather and Becky,” and their mission to help equip and empower intentional disciples.
A podcast is a pre-recorded audio program that can be accessed on any device with internet. Heather and Becky began releasing weekly podcast episodes in December 2016. To date, they have released 70 episodes with more than 65 dynamic Catholics, including well-known individuals such as Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood employee who became a pro-life activist; speaker, musician and author Chris Padgett; and Father Mike Schmitz, an author and speaker whose talks are available through Ascension Press and Lighthouse Media.
The guests also include many “hometown” heroes such as Bishop James Conley and Father Robert Matya, pastor of the UNL Newman Center. But they also include stories of “ordinary” Catholics from around the globe, sharing stories of finding beauty in suffering, experiencing miraculous cures and many more topics.
In a March 2016 interview with the Register, Heather said the pair “just really want to try to encourage people, if God places on their heart that He has really worked in their lives in a certain way, that’s a story that could be helpful for people.
“If you have a story you want to tell,” she said, “please let us know.”
The podcast can be accessed on iTunes, any podcasting app and on their website goforthpodcast.com.
