Mrs. Christine Watkins, formerly an anti-Christian atheist living a life of sin, began a life of service to the Catholic Church after a miraculous healing from Jesus through Mary, which she says saved her from death. She is now a popular Catholic author and speaker, who has been featured on radio and television. Her show, Ties of Faith, airs on Shalom World Television (www.ShalomWorld.org), and her book, Full of Grace: Miraculous Stories of Healing and Conversion through Mary’s Intercession, is a Catholic bestseller.

Christine Broesamle converted from an actively Evangelical Protestant background. No one anticipated the enormous life changes which took place within a few months of her Confirmation as a Catholic, following an unmistakable voice of God in her heart to “do it now”. The next call was even more surprising: a pastor invited her along on a trip to Rwanda, during which she heard the voice of the Lord telling her to return to live there: “give your life away, and spend it on this”. Thus began an ongoing odyssey of faith, obedience, a personal stripping-down, and a discovery of Providence at a level most of us hope we’ll never have to go to.
