Is Love Really Blind?
Have you seen the new TV show Love is Blind? I'll be honest, I was a little late to the show BUT I did watch it and this is in part my response to the question, is love blind? To answer this age-old question, I dive into 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7. I know, we live in a pretty superficial world that wants us to focus on the perfect attributes of a person and in doing so sometimes missing out on connecting with someone on a humane level through the flaws we share. I hope you find this episode encouraging and reflective. I hope it challenges your perspective on what to expect and look for in a partner and the things to truly look for in relationships. So, tell me, is love blind? --------------------------------------------- Thank you for tuning in and listening! If you want more episodes like this please be sure to subscribe, rate and review!

Babies R US: Why Bring Children Into an Uncertain and Broken World?
Happy good morning/afternoon/evening, I hope and pray you're in good health.  In today's episode, I thought it fitting to talk about babies! I realized that there are so many parents and expecting parents at this time. So, for this episode, I talk about what the Bible has to say about the choice to become a parent. Especially in a world that is broken. The choice to become a parent is such a complex and life-changing decision that should not be taken lightly. I talk about why we still bring innocent children into an uncertain world and what a gift children are. In this episode, I go over a list of questions for parents to be to talk about before their children come. Please, feel free to reach out to me through Instagram for the full list of questions.  I hope you find this episode encouraging in these crazy times.  ----------------------------------------------------- Thank you for tuning in and listening!

Difficulties in Marriage that Leads to Grace
Hey guys and gals! This week's episode is all about difficulties in a marriage that leads to grace. I talk about ways God prepared us and continues to prepare us for the big things in our marriage. The topis are sex, counseling, school, scheduling, house buying, children, and more! So come on and take a ride with me while I reflect on our first year of marriage and the things we've had to allow God to work through in us as a couple. I hope that for anyone getting married, already married or have been married for some time, you come to realize that you're not alone and that we all have different journeys. However, it doesn't mean we can't share our experiences to help one another feel less alone. I would also like to say that in this difficult moment, please tune in to EWTN as another way to spend time in the word of God. Please send us any prayer requests that you might have. We would love to pray for you and your loved ones in this time of difficulty. ------------------------------------------ Thank you for tuning in and listening!

Do You Even Lent?: Lenten Season in the Catholic Church
Hey there! In this episode, I talk about all things Lenten Season in the Catholic church. From what is Lent to what do Catholics eat and not eat during this season of fasting, prayer, and penitence. I talk about giving up something vs. taking on something for the Lenten season and I also talk about why certain things should not be given up at this time. I even talk about why so many of your Facebook friends might be inactive at this moment! Through it all, I reference quotes from AboutCatholic.com. Check out the link below to read it for yourself.  Link:  AboutCatholics,com (http://www.aboutcatholics.com/beliefs/ash-wednesday/?fbclid=IwAR1168WB7ww2dvGbFzqAXTNhBkvRg3QfwS6uJuzN7lsZ1B8bjFxluy89epw) As always, I hope you found this episode helpful.  P.S.

Guys and Gals: Who is to Blame?
Hi there!  In today's episode, we talk about the LGBTQIA community, why it seems guys always seem to be blamed for so much, and more. This topic touches on so much that my husband and I feel is not talked about at all/enough. We talk about masculinity and feminity and why this is a topic that is ongoing but needs to be talked about, so here we are starting the dialogue!  We dive into male and female roles and how that has changed. Tune in to hear what my husband has to say about this topic! You might be left a little surprised! As always, send us your feedback! ------------------------- Thank you for tuning in and listening!

Marriage II: What We Now Know
Join my husband and I as we share with you some of the stories about our upbringing, and how it has shaped us and our expectations coming into our marriage. We talk about our experience going through pre-marriage counseling before our wedding and why we love pre-marriage counseling as well as the things we learned from it. Join in as we dive into the church's work in helping couples live a God-centered marriage. You will laugh and cringe a little (hopefully not too much), but hopefully, you leave with a bit more knowledge from what we share. In this episode, we also talk about some of the myths of marriage.
