Part 2 of our book study continues with our discussion about being a 1 in 100 parent, and how that means we have to do what’s right, even if it is in opposition to the opinions of the majority. How does socialization affect our decision? What about homeschooling? Listen in as Jo and John help you to feel empowered in this anti-parent culture!

Even Jo and John can use some helpful guidance in raising their kids in a culture that wants to water down their parental authority and wisdom. Today we are beginning a book study with “Raising Upright Kids in an Upside-Down World”, a book by Dr. Ray Guarendi. Over the next few weeks we will discuss it’s contents and hope you will follow along with us. So pick up a book today and join us!!

ep 45

Is loneliness a bad thing? For some, it is driven by FOMO (fear of missing out) and envy from what their peers are experiencing. For others, it is an absence of connecting to others through our senses. Jo and John break down this dilemma during Covid-19 and the holidays, and how we can use loneliness to further meditate with Christ since he also experienced loneliness.

In honor of the year of St. Joseph and in celebration of the feast of the Holy Family, we dedicate this episode to all of those who live ordinary, yet holy, lives. This is great timing as we approach Christmas in the next few days. Have you ever wondered why it was a manager in a stable that Jesus was born? Listen to Jo and John to find out!

Yes, COVID has forced us into a quiet Christmas away from the busyness of years past, but it is also a blessing! Time for us to slow down and be still. Time for us to reflect on Christ’s birth. Time for us to spend with our family, and get back to the true meaning of the season. Jo and John talk about some suggestions for how you can celebrate this year.

ep 41

How many of you have wrestled for authority in your home? Jo openly shares her personal struggles of balancing power and authority in her marriage, and her realization that she’s been pushing her husband out of the way. Can you relate? Listen in as Jo and John unpack this and provide connections to Christ and his parables.

Thanksgiving is a great time to not only be thankful for our blessings, but to reminisce about our childhood. From making homemade stuffing to watching the annual parade to sharing the holiday with friends and family…we can all express gratitude about something. This is especially important this year, since many have struggled in one way or another.

During the last episode, we discussed grace from the sacrament of marriage. But why does our faith call us to follow a particular order, including marriage IN THE Church, rather than the beach or other locations? What does sex communicate to our spouse? Why is it good and necessary? Join Jo and John in today’s discussion.
