UNFROZEN: “Being The One Worth Melting For” by Marianne Soratorio Dyogi (As He Loves Ministries)

Monday, Feb. 10, 2013 @ 7:30pm

Holy Family Catholic Church (JOHN PAUL II ROOM – next to Parish Hall)

18708 Clarkdale Avenue, Artesia, California 90701

All too often we get caught up in looking for Mr./Ms. Right. Without a significant other, we sometimes feel incomplete and devalued as we long for that special someone to come along and sweep us off our feet. Yet even when we have what we want, loneliness and isolation can still set in. Marianne takes the powerful themes of the Disney movie “Frozen” and breaks down the importance of personal dignity, self-love, and sacrifice…all necessary for a fruitful relationship with ourselves, our God, and those given to us to love.

*** SPECIAL NOTE: In order to fully appreciate the lessons in this talk, it is highly advisable to see “Frozen” prior to attending. If this is not possible, please be aware that UNFROZEN will be jam-packed with references that may put a damper on your future movie-watching experience. Can’t say we didn’t warn you…

VALOR: “Made for a Mission- To Protect Her, To Love Her, To Serve Her” by Gary Rosete Dyogi (As He Loves Ministries)

A man’s boyhood struggles can lead to young adulthood challenges in faith, relationships, and self-worth. But from these challenges comes a discovery of his potential to LOVE. From this discovery arises a new beginning in life of being faithful to God, faithful to his wife, and faithful to his family. Through it all, the virtue that keeps him committed to this mission is VALOR.
Learn how faith, love, and chivalry prepare a man to answer God’s call to marriage for a lifetime.

GARY DYOGI
Originally from San Francisco, Gary first arrived in Los Angeles in 1996 where he attended Loyola Marymount University. Gary graduated with a science degree in 2000, and pursued a career in sports medicine as an athletic trainer. Although Gary is a certified athletic trainer and a certified strength and conditioning specialist by trade, he happily works outside his field as a domestic engineer and daycare provider…which means he takes care of the kids and the household during the day. This is a sacrifice that is priceless and worth every milestone moment. Gary is happily married for three years, and he is a proud father of two little girls.

And all God’s children said, “Amen!”

Wow, what a day…

I was excited…nervous…and I couldn’t get to sleep last night but it was all worth it!  When Jason asked me to speak at the Youth Prayer Rally, I jumped at the chance without realizing how involved we would really get with it.  I felt so strongly about sharing God’s message of Love with the youth, so I volunteered to give a prep talk at one of their meetings a few weeks ago.  Since then I’ve seen how powerfully the Holy Spirit has been working in this group and I praise God for their open minds and hearts.  It has been one amazing journey.

From the lesson on chastity to the hula session leading up to tonight, we have been so in awe over the fire God has lit in the souls of these kids. Praise God for “Marco Antonio”, Abby, Toni, Jason, Joanne, Nicole, and the other young adults at Holy Family who have been guiding this group along the way. I am so grateful for the work He is doing through each one of them because it gives me hope for the future of my own children. If we can revolutionize the culture we live in, great things can happen. Granted that it will not happen without some sacrifice, we have the prayers of all the angels and saints and the grace of God Himself to make it all possible.

Here are snippets of the blessings we have received through this community…

Holy Family YPR 2009 – Beloved

“Beloved, we are God’s children and what we shall be has not yet been shown. Yet when he appears in his glory, we know that we shall be like him, for then we shall see him as he is. All who have such a hope try to be pure as he is pure.” (1Jn 3:2-3)

Reclaiming the purity of this generation… There’s so much to say and so much to do. Lord, help me remember that this is Your work…always by Your grace. Amen.
