Another week, another full slate of content from CHNetwork! Here’s a sampling of what we were up to:

Single mom Laura Hinson found herself looking for meaning, and encountered Christ in the Catholic Church. She detailed her journey in this week’s Written Story.
Rob Corzine of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology was our featured guest on the latest Signposts video short. He talked about how the gift of a ziplock bag full of Scott Hahn tapes eventually led to him working for Scott Hahn.
For #ThrowbackThursday, we unearthed a May 2000 visit of Great Adventure Bible Timeline founder Jeff Cavins to The Journey Home. One thing’s for sure- Jeff’s never boring!
