Youth Track: Timmerie Millington (Trending with Timmerie), Science & Beauty of Sexuality

  • Timmerie tries to help others discover life-giving self-giving love as central to the human vocation. She focusses primarily on human dignity in the modern world as she addresses current trends and the pursuit of happiness.
  • The human body is wired for love. No other created being can comprehend the meaning of life and sexual intimacy the way humans can. Neuroscientists and social scientists never cease to be amazed by the creation of the human persons – both in their complementarity and distinct differences as male and female. As sexual intimacy is degraded and your God given sex is brought into question by radical gender ideologies, here you will be reminded of the purpose your body is created for from its very conception.

Special Workshop for the Youth By Timmerie Millington: Your life & the New Evangelization

Evangelization begins with you! By your Baptism you are called to be a witness of hope. Enter into this mission remembering the words of Pope Paul VI: "All life demands struggle... The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today." In this talk we will talk about how the person you are, not what you do, will lead you to impact the culture for Christ.
