I Don't Need God ... And Certainly NOT Catholicism!
Kendra Von Esh was a Corporate Executive who thought she it all—high powered career, prestige, fantastic family, friends and social life. She devoured all the pleasures this world had to offer but nothing satisfied her desire for 'something more' and her life filled with stress, anxiety and worry continued as the norm. She bought into the notion that life was supposed to be difficult and she constantly felt inadequate and never good enough.
Kendra was “confirmed” Catholic – but learned nothing about the Faith. She only went to Mass on Christmas and Easter as a child. Her family never spoke about religion or God and the culture and society raised her. When she moved out on her own as a young adult, she wasn’t going to church of any kind for decades.
Then God found her on Easter in 2013 and flipped her reality upside down and transformed her life!
Kendra finally found that ‘something more’ and she left her Executive Career to inspire others deepen their relationship with God as a Catholic Speaker, TV News Anchor, Radio Host and Author. She speaks about how her relationship with God, the supernatural sacramental graces of the Faith and gifts of the Holy Spirit have changed everything in her life!

Written Testimonials (Video Testimonial below):
"Kendra Von Esh overflows with enthusiasm and passion as she tells of her recent conversion, reversion and immersion into the Catholic faith! Her joy is contagious." - Rev. Francis J. Hoffman (Fr. Rocky), Executive Director / CEO, Relevant Radio
"I settled in to listen to what I thought was going to be "another boring speaker!" And then Kendra started talking! Kendra's ora sparkled! I was engaged the entire time she spoke. She shared a story that was REAL! And it connects to anyone attending. It was as though my guardian angel put me exactly where I needed to be to listen to her story! I am still moved by her talk! I grabbed her book and can’t wait to finish reading it. I am sharing it with my sisters and family. I needed this talk! Go now, do not hesitate, go see her speak, you will be glad you did!” - Isabelle Roiniotis, Mom, Wife and Restaurateur
"It was apparent from the beginning of her presentation, Kendra’s professional background in the business world makes her comfortable speaking in front of large audiences. Soon, she had our listeners and supporters leaning forward in their chairs, hanging on every word of her story of conversion. Suddenly, they became characters in her true tale of conversion. Storytelling is both an art and a science. The ability to tell great stories, especially true stories, is a gift. Kendra has that gift." - Mike Kendall, Chief Program Officer, Relevant Radio
