⁣From being originally christened into the occult as a baby to being fully baptized into the Catholic church as a child, Aaron Fowler shares the surprising journey of his life.

Aaron is the Executive Director for Bloom Pregnancy Help Center, previously Birth Choice, in Dallas, Texas. Bloom actively promotes the culture of life and accompanies families as they seek to do the same. As he says, “I am just a dad and a farmer, running a pregnancy center.”

Aaron’s pathway to nonprofit leadership was anything but typical. In high school, Aaron’s family moved to the country, where he learned to play guitar. When he returned to the city, he used those skills to play in a few bands in Dallas.

Through his parents’ prayers and the conversion of his grandmother during her last year of life, Aaron was inspired to seek to understand his own faith. Aaron had an incredible moment when he picked up a theology manual from Ludwig Ott, and somehow everything clicked.

Aaron then joined the Franciscans of the Immaculate in Italy during his discernment of the priesthood. During this time, he was also fighting through his initial contraction of Lime disease. His health conditions ultimately helped to complete his discernment as Aaron left religious life.

Aaron and his wife have four boys and are pregnant with their 5th child.

He has launched over 90 podcasts and loves experimenting with different styles and approaches.

In addition, Joe is also the producer, director and chairman of the National Catholic Men’s Conference, an annual event held in Cincinnati, Ohio to help men of all ages and faiths grow closer in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Joe shares the moments that launched his ministry from representing his sister as a Catholic speaker to landing Fr. John Corapi as an early client. Joe also told the story of the 2023 National Men’s Conference, where he and his team set up an incredibly touching moment and had Jonathan Roumie, the actor who plays Jesus in The Chosen, surprise an assembly of elementary students the day before his talk on the big stage.

The night before filming this episode of The BeatiDudes, Joe joined Jim Caviezel, the actor who plays Jesus in The Passion of the Christ, for the NCAA Football Championship game and witnessed the greatest moment he has ever seen in sports. Tune in to find out what it was.

On Blessed are the Joke Makers, the Dudes must take on the persona of a recently engaged person to address the prompt, “What is talked about at the pub?”

The TBD Question of the Day is “Tell us about your proposal.”

And don’t miss Reverse Simpsons designed by Jeff where the Nick and Paul must stuff their mouth with six marshmallows before trying to get Joe to guess a series of 3 secret words each.
