About the Book

My Reason for Hope is the book Jim wishes he had read during his own journey. It is for those who may be at the first steps of their journey to learn more about the Catholic Faith, and who want easy to understand answers. It explains Catholic doctrine, the scriptural basis for each, and what the Church teaches using the Catechism as a reference. The purpose of My Reason for Hope is to provide enough introductory information that will lead the reader to begin asking more in-depth questions about the Catholic Faith.

About the Author

Jim Beadles is a former Protestant who spent more than 30 years resisting God’s call for him to become Catholic. Eventually, he talked with enough people (including virtually every priest in his diocese), asked enough questions, did enough studying, and received the answers he needed in order to fully embrace the Catholic Faith. Jim became Catholic in 2008 and considers this the single most important decision he has ever made. From this one decision, he has experienced a deeper and more meaningful relationship with God, which has made all aspects of his life better.

Jim currently serves as RCIA Director at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Shreveport, Louisiana where he is privileged to work with a dedicated Team to teach and assist others on their personal journey to the Catholic Church. Jim also loves being a husband, dad, and grandfather.
