Season 2, baby! We’ve all got personal truths of life but what if there is ultimate truth, objective truth that grounds us all? Our thoughts, environment, habits, and relationships give us an idea of what could be true, but who can we trust to be the most faithful?

Health, fitness, body image, self care and self love should not feel unattainable. Why do we doubt our own potential? Our body’s abilities? In an interview with health and fitness trainer, Cheri St. Martine, this episode motivates us to find the goodness in finding motivation in our journey of fitness and health. Speaking not on just the importance of working out for physical results, but interior ones... it’s time to: “get your mind right!”
God gives humans freedom for the sake of choosing love. Freedom is the only thing that makes love possible. In an interview with Catholic writer and novelist, Lindsey Todd, Shannon unpacks Lindsey’s story of finding God after ending her 6 year relationship to pursue chastity. Lindsey is the author of ‘Freedom to Love’ where she writes on the importance and practicality of dating in the 21st century with a chaste mind and spirit.
How, where, and when do we get a glimpse at the love that awakens our soul? The love we dreamed of at 13, 14, even 20... does it exist or have we been burned? And when we get it, how do we keep it? In the search for love, for God, for pure goodness, how can we understand it all?
Part two on personality involves an interview with Shannon’s Dad, Pat. Pat, a former entrepreneur and current manger, talks about being humbled at the age of 51 when he realized Jesus’ personality is the sum of all successful management leadership. Pat identifies ways that Jesus was and is all of what secular management training taught him. The two talk about Emotional Intelligence, business leadership, and how Jesus’ personality was the influence and motivation for his followers to sustain and build up the Catholic Church.

The power of your personality is strong, full of mystery, unrepeatable, and shows us the creativeness of our Creator. We can find God’s love, likeness, and goodness in our own self as we reflect and ponder the heroic journey of being an inspiring and authentic human.
