Hello! I’m Chris Schroeder and I’ve been married to my husband Brian for over 20 years, and we have 3 children: a daughter Allison, and 2 sons: Jordan and Noah. Although Brian and I are “cradle Catholics”, our personal relationship with Christ didn’t really start until we attended a WWME (Worldwide Marriage Encounter) weekend in 2006 when I was expecting our youngest son, Noah. We always felt strongly about raising our kids in the Catholic faith, but it was not until this weekend that we began inviting Christ more fully and deeply into our daily lives as husband and wife and as a family. Brian and I became involved in several parish/community faith ministries after our WWME weekend, but I still longed for and even slightly “envied” those with a strong devotion to our Blessed Mother. For some reason, I just did not know how or where to begin. During this time, a friend of mine introduced me to SoulCore after hearing about it on Catholic radio. As an occupational therapist, with a strong personal and professional interest in health and wellness, I immediately fell in love with the program and ordered all the DVDs so I could “practice” and follow along at home. For the next few years, I would often wonder about going on a Leader Retreat, but the timing never seemed right until 2018. Since then, I not only have led SoulCore sessions in our community, but I have also grown in my love and appreciation for our Blessed Mother.
