When Everett Fritz was 16 years old, he heard God speak to him for the first time. He had hit his knees in prayer to pray for a friend that had narrowly escaped rape. The response that he received from God was not what he expected and Everett began a journey that led him to encounter Christ by living the virtue of chastity. Everett is a best-selling author and one of the most sought after Catholic speakers in the country.
