Meet David Fortin

David Fortin is a devoted husband and father that has been in the process of re-inventing himself with the help of the Blessed Mother and the Holy Spirit since his return to the Catholic Church in 2007. A Land Surveyor by trade David follows in the footsteps of his literary hero Henry David Thoreau (also a Land Surveyor) by living simply and deliberately the principals of the gospels and allowing the transcendental power of God’s love to guide his journey.

In 2020 David began a podcast called Along The Way Casual Conversations with interesting people. It is an interview style show that takes a different approach than most Catholic podcasts.

Besides his own podcast Dave has produced both podcasts and radio shows and been on air talent for Catholic Radio Station’s around the United States and Ireland. Sought after as a technical adviser to aspiring podcast he continues to encourage others in the words that Thoreau penned on the Shore of Walden Pond

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you have imagined.”

When asked why that quote was so important to him, he replied “Because it is simple and it is where you find your purpose as God speaks to your heart”.

David is also a public speaker that has addressed retreats, parish missions, and fraternal organizations. He speaks about Forgiveness of others and of self. Other talks include simple Theology ,the power of prayer and Divine Mercy.

It was when David interviewed Dr. George Ceremuga that he was moved by the simple message of lead with love that he wanted to join the team.
