Welcome to Standing on my Head
This website started as a simple blog back in 2006. It has grown to become a center for all my ministries online and in person.
I still blog almost every day on a range of issues. The blog posts are free for all and reach thousands of people worldwide. I also invite you to sign up for my free monthly newsletter called FaithWorks! It provides a short reflection and links to great Catholic resources. You can also receive my free e-book called Is Anybody There?
Donor Subscribers also have access to fifteen sections of my archived articles from a range of other magazines, websites and journals. You can go here to browse the twenty or so books I have written on Catholic faith and culture.
Most of my podcasts are available free at BreadBox Media and other podcast outlets. There are more podcast series and full length versions here for Donor-Subscribers. Check out my podcasts here.
Last summer I added a new feature to the blog–online courses. The lectures from these live real time courses are made available in the new video section of the blog for Donor-Subscribers at the Promotion Level and above. You can also check out my YouTube channel where various video series are available free of charge and I encourage you to follow me on Twitter
You’ll notice that there are no third party ads on the blog. I aim to make as much content free as possible, but it is not free to produce. Donor-Subscribers help to cover the costs of the blog, so if you can sign up as a Donor-Subscriber please do. Take a moment and go here to learn more about the costs and benefits.

NEW! Online Video Courses
There are two ways to access these courses. To have access to all the recorded video content and receive automatic invitations to all the real time, online courses simply sign up as a Donor-Subscriber at the Promotion Level or above. Go here to learn how to become a Donor-Subscriber.
The best value is to sign up as a Donor Subscriber at the Promotion Level, but if you wish to watch the recorded videos for just one course you can purchase an individual course at the bookstore for $54.95. Just go here to view the courses and make your purchase. After you purchase a particular course you will receive an email with instructions on how to access the content.
