After years of being a non-practicing Catholic, Johnnette experienced a deep conversion back to her Catholic faith in 1981.

She has been an inspiring and consistent presence on Catholic radio (1987) and in Catholic television (1988) ever since.

Thomas K Sullivan

At the young age of 17, Thomas K Sullivan began a career serving in the United States Military (US Navy and Coast Guard). During his 12 years of service, Tom spent 5 of those years as a Company Commander in the US Navy, training young men and women in the ways of military life, and was awarded the designation as a "Master Training Specialist". Little did he know God was grooming him for a training field much bigger than he could imagine.

At the age of 30, Tom returned to the Catholic Faith and found his true mission in life. Using the same determination, skills and abilities that made him a successful and highly decorated military leader, Tom has spent the past 24 years in Catholic evangelization, education and apologetics.

In 1992 following a disabling injury which brought his military career to an end, Tom began working with St, Joseph Communications in California. During this time, he developed evangelization and educational materials for both national and international audiences. Tom also conceived and developed the Scott and Kimberly Hahn Adult Education on Video program now in thousands of homes and parishes. Tom is a founding member of the National Catholic Family Conference held each year in California and was the 1996 recipient of the annual Fulton J. Sheen award for his work in evangelization.

In 1998, Tom formed a youth outreach organization featuring the Catholic Rock Music group, Sons of Thunder Outreach. The group went on to record a highly requested CD "Fatherland", a Catholic rock music CD with lyrics telling the story of salvation history, conversion, the sacraments and more.

In 2001, Tom joined the staff of Living His Life Abundantly International. He serves as the Director of Operations, Director of Information Technology and Network Administrator and Senior radio engineer. Tom is also the producer of the Television program "Women of Grace" on the EWTN television network.

In addition, Tom has extensive experience teaching parish adult education classes and youth confirmation preparation. He speaks at conferences, nationally and internationally, men's groups and to both adults and teens on the many topics concerning the Catholic Faith.

Tom is the author of the book "Called to Knighthood: The Sacrament of Confirmation in the Kingdom Family of God" published by Simon Peter Press. He has been a radio guest on The Abundant Life, Women of Grace LIVE, Faith and Family Radio programs, as well as Seize the Day with Gus Lloyd on Sirius Satellite radio.

He has also been a television guest on EWTN's Life on the Rock, Bookmark with Doug Keck, The Abundant Life, and over a dozen Women of Grace television programs.

He is currently working on an expanded book on the Sacrament of Confirmation titled “Warriors for the Kingdom.” He continues to spend much of his free time speaking about the importance of Confirmation, its connection to Baptism and it’s relationship to Spiritual Knighthood!

Tom is a devoted husband to his wife Carol and father of six children; Jeffrey, Tommy, Maria, Michael, Joshua and Gabriel. He is also the proud Grandfather of his 11 grandchildren (currently).
