A cradle Catholic from Omaha, Nebraska, Micah’s work in Catholic New Media began when he was still a teenager. After spending 9 years in Catholic school, he entered public high school to find himself challenged in his faith by his non-Catholic classmates. Seeking the truth, Micah scoured his parents’ Catechism, read Patrick Madrid and Catholic Answers, and learned the faith by debating it through online apologetics. At the same time, he began to appreciate the patrimony of the faith as he studied Latin.
Excited to serve the Lord, Micah became a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Omaha. While studying at Conception Seminary College, he grew in his love of Catholic tradition through his exposure to monastic life and study of Biblical Greek. He also grew in his experience of Catholic New Media with the online apostolate Phatmass. Discerning a call to marriage, he left for a very fruitful year getting acquainted as a student with the work of FOCUS at the University of Nebraska, which inspired him to make evangelization his life’s work. After transferring to Franciscan University of Steubenville, Micah graduated in 2007 with a BA in Theology & Catechetics (with a Latin minor).
Micah married his wife, Jennie, in 2007, and they have three children. They live in Shreveport, Louisiana, where Micah teaches Scripture at Loyola College Prep.

What do Republicans have in common with Democrats? If Louisana State Senator Peacock and US Senator Landrieu (from Louisiana) are our samples, the answer is religious dishonesty that seeks ultimately to remove Christianity from the political equation in America. I wrote last week about the moral stupidity of a local Louisiana politician, State Sen. Barrow [...]
I watched in horror with countless others across America as the events of Sandy Hook unfolded. Though I can’t understand first hand what they are going through, I can relate to the students who must return to or attend Sandy Hook for the first time this fall. A year before I graduated high school, the [...]
The Millennial Generation has lately come to be much more frequently discussed. As a Millennial myself and a teacher of Millennials, I have a great personal interest in the discussion. About the Millennials, there is no shortage of observations coming from the Baby Boomers. Joel Stein of TIME Magazine, himself hailing from the margins between [...]
“Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.” -Matthew 7:6 I got my start in the online Catholic world when I was 15, learning and applying apologetics on a very secular forum. As a trial by fire, [...]
Earlier today, I posted a link to our T&C Reader and to the 6300 members of our FB affiliate, Stand with the US Bishops Against the HHS. That link took the reader to a petition, sponsored by the Louisiana Conference of Catholic Bishops, calling for Louisiana State Senators Smith et al. to withdraw their proposal [...]
It’s that time of year again. In a few short weeks, the Class of 2013 will walk across a commencement stage and receive their diplomas.

It’ll show at [...]Click here to read more articles from Micah...
