Jerry Weber is a California and San Diego County native. Jerry is a former liberal who spent most of his teenage years mixed up with drugs and a very dysfunctional home life. Feeling called by God to turn his life around at 17, Jerry — a lifelong Catholic — found himself attending Mass and graduating high school a semester early. Now at age 31 Jerry has grown into a proud Catholic with more Conservative values than he would have ever imagined. Struggling to be a better Catholic, on top of dealing with anxiety and depression issues, Jerry shares his story on how God and the Church have and will continue to transform his life, how dealing with an anxiety disorder has affected his spiritual life, and how others can learn from his story.[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/catholicmoments/cm107.mp3[/podcast]
