Newsflash: My Surprising Journey from Secular Anchor to Media Evangelist is Teresa Tomeo's first person account of the events in her life that have brought her to her current role as a woman on a mission to employ the power of the media to bring people to the fullness of the truth of a life lived with God at one's center. With surprising candor, Tomeo recounts her rise to the heights of the network news business and her subsequent sinking to the depths of the industry, including a trip to the unemployment line. When we think enviously of television personalities who live their lives as open books, rarely do we pause to contemplate the pain they must face when their own personal tragedies are played out in the public eye. Teresa Tomeo, however, was able to take what most would consider a deal-breaking hand and turn it into a winner.Read more ›
Just as an addict or alcoholic has to "hit bottom" before he can recover, Teresa describes in heart-wrenching detail the events that led her to step back and take a hard look at her life. Her marriage was falling apart; her job demanded too much of her time and too little of her ethics, and her best friend in the business--a "role model" for success--had just committed suicide. The landscape of her life was no more real than one-dimensional stage scenery--and just as unstable. If that were the end of her story, it would be a tragedy.
But then she tells "the rest of the story." It never ceases to amaze me how God can take a seeming disaster and turn it into a blessing. Teresa's saying "let my misery be my ministry" speaks volumes for the good she's accomplished by using her secular-acquired skills in the Master's vinyard.
NEWSFLASH read more like a page-turner than a biography. It's at once realistic but hopeful and inspirational reading for anyone facing the challenge of living the faith in today's PC culture. Highly recommended!
This book will make you laugh and make you cry but her candid testimony of how she worked through all the problems in order to understand and embrace the Faith and to use all her life experience in her present job as a presenter on Ave Maria Radio (avemariaradio.net) and a speaker at many conferences all over the US and beyond, not to mention the healing of her wonderful marriage, really does make a good read which I highly recommend and hope will prove to be inspirational and helpful to all who read it.
