Show Notes

In this episode, I'm joined by my good friend Keith Nester and his wife Estelle to talk about their Catholic journey.

Keith and Estelle met as Keith was beginning his work as a Protestant pastor; work that would take up 22 years of life his. Estelle, raised Catholic but not practising, was happy to follow Keith into Evangelical Christianity, to get married, raise kids, and live and serve as a pastor's wife.

So, what was it like when Keith began feeling the tug towards Catholicism?

Their journey is an amazing one and their honesty and love for one another and our Lord just shines through this conversation.

For all spouses going through a conversion journey, or thinking about one, this is absolutely the best thing to listen to and I hope it encourages you greatly!

For more from Keith please check out our extensive back catalogue – he's appeared may times – and find him online on his website and YouTube channel. Also, check out the Rosary Crew where Keith and his community pray the rosary every single day (for over 1,000 days and counting). Not bad for a Protestant pastor.
