Living Life by Design, Not Default

Fr. Michael Schmitz

With so much technology at our fingertips, it's tough not to get swept away in all the noise and clutter. In our society there's often a tendency to live passively by simply "going with the flow." In this talk given at a FOCUS national conference, Fr. Mike Schmitz explains how we need to live an intentionally Christian life within a technological age. 

Fr. Mike Schmitz is one of the leading speakers to young people in the Church today, serving as both the director of youth and young adult ministry in the diocese of Duluth and as the chaplain for the Neumann Catholic campus ministry at the University of Duluth.
