My first exposure to the the Theology of the Body involved cassette tapes of Christopher West on a roadtrip to North Dakota. I listened to them twice (and many times after that) knowing immediately – like so many others – that this language held the core answers to all the big questions in life. When I started studying the book for the first time, it took me a year to pronounce “eschatological” without stopping midstream. I owe much to those who explained all the big theological and philosophical terms to me – people with much greater degrees than I – and so I now put myself at the service of those who want the heart of the message in everyday, applicable language. – Jen Messing

Jen, founder and executive director of Into the Deep, has been giving presentations and leading theology of the body-based retreats in both outdoor and traditional settings since 2002. Her particular gift is to inject the universal language of the theology of the body into a wide range of ages, populations, and subject matter, showing how applicable it is in everyday life and in every aspect of the Catholic faith.
