Nate Guyear’s Conversion/Reversion Story
Nate Guyear was born in the great state of Tennessee and was baptized in the Catholic Church as an infant. However, his primary exposure to Christianity was through the Methodist Church. He joined the Air Force in 1996, and came back to the Catholic Church via RCIA (Communion and Confirmation classes) in 2002. Unfortunately, Nate’s return to the Church was short lived, as he preferred the world’s delights to God’s truth and love.
That all changed in January 2012, when Nate experienced what he describes as an invisible hand that reached into his chest and pulled. The sensation lasted about eleven months.
Immediately, Nate knew he needed to return to the Catholic Church. Nate began attending Mass every Sunday and some weekdays, went to confession, turned off secular TV and radio programs, and began listening to Catholic radio stations, reading Catholic apologetics/theology material and helping out at his local parish.
Despite his desire to serve God, however, Nate continued to struggle with personal sin for the next couple of years. Finally, by God’s grace, Nate moved to Texas, met his wife, and entered into the sacrament of Matrimony in 2015.
Via the sacramental graces poured out through matrimony, confession and the Eucharist, God has helped Nate resist temptation and continues to create a new man who makes God’s will, truth, and love his priority.
As a result, Nate pursued and completed an M.A. in Theology at Holy Apostles College and Seminary, a Post-Master’s Certificate in Moral Theology at Christendom College, teaches apologetics at local parishes, is the Religious Education Coordinator for his parish, and, along with his wife, takes the Eucharist to the sick.
Nate wants everyone to know that God distributes his graces through his holy Catholic Church, Jesus Christ’s true body and bride, which is guided by the Holy Spirit into all truths.
