My name is Chelsea Zimmerman; I am a Catholic writer, editor, blogger and podcaster. I currently serve as the editor-in-chief for the online Catholic magazine, Catholic Lane. I am also the social media director for Missouri Right to Life.
I am a regular guest on Catholic radio and some of my articles have been published at Catholic Lane, Ignitum Today, National Right to Life, LifeNews and Human Life International’s Truth and Charity Forum.
In 1999, when I was a junior in high school, I received a spinal cord injury in a car accident that left me paralyzed from the chest down. I have a beautiful, blessed life, but not a day goes by that I don’t face some new challenge or limitation.
Despite being the challenges I still live a relatively “normal” life. There is still so much I can do, and, most importantly, I still have the love of my family and the ability to love in return. In short, I have a great life because I’m a human being and I know my life has value!
If you want to know even more about me, you can watch my episode of EWTN’s Life on the Rock:
Or listen to an interview I did with Jerry Weber on his online radio show, The Catholic Revolver:
“Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10
“To offer myself as a victim of Divine love is not to offer myself to sweetness, to consolation, but to every anquish, every bitterness; for love lives only by sacrifice, and the more the soul wills to be surrendered to love, the more must she be surrendered to suffering.” ~St. Therese of Lisuix
Would that everyone might know I should already be damned were it not for Mary!
~St. Louis Marie DeMontfort
