Episode 34 - Experiencing Exodus with Deacon Michael Halbrook
Let's be honest: it is TOUGH to be a man after Jesus Christ. The world calls us to compromise, but God calls us to embrace our greatness. How can we follow this calling when so much of our culture is encouraging us to settle? Join Deacon Michael Halbrook, COO of Exodus 90, and Steve Pokorny, Founder of Freedom Coaching, go deep into a discussion about Exodus 90. Come learn how this  butt-kicking, boot camp of a program -- but much more than a program -- is designed to help you and your brothers embrace discipline that will make you into more. Guaranteed. About Deacon Michael Halbrook: Deacon Michael Halbrook was ordained for the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki on June 26, 2021. He and his wife have been married eighteen years and are raising four sons. His diaconal ministry at St. Elizabeth Parish in Granite City, Illinois is to serve the pastor as director of faith formation and liturgy. He has a deep passion for evangelization, catechesis, and the liturgy, and a deep love for Eucharistic adoration, marriage preparation, and baptizing children. He first journeyed Exodus 90 solo in 2016, then with a virtual fraternity in 2021, and finally an in-person fraternity in 2022 with which he’s continuing in 2023. He was involved with the Exodus team in collaboration and creativity to deepen the engagement of Exodus within parish life, and in the fall of 2022 he joined the growing team of Exodus as their first COO. Michael’s secular career was as a leader at the intersection of technology, media, and marketing. Most recently, he was a Director at Adobe, capping fifteen years in various roles, including Chief of Staff for the 650-person, $200M/year consulting business. In various roles he initiated & grew teams in some of the most high-growth and forward-looking areas of Adobe consulting.

Episode 33 - Redeeming the Wounds of Divorce with Dr. Daniel Meola
Episode 33 - Redeeming the Wounds of Divorce with Dr. Daniel Meola
Whether we think so or not, divorce impacts all of us profoundly. "I'll be fine," so the line goes. But for both those who go through divorce, and for the children who grow up from broken unions, fine is anything besides what they are. Why? Because this isn't what marriage, as designed by God, is supposed to be. For children of divorced parents, trying to make sense of life, love, and the pursuit of a forever union can be incredibly damaged, causing us to think that maybe my heart's deepest desires are impossible dreams. Join Dr. Daniel Meola, co-Founder of LIfe-Giving Wounds, and Steve Pokorny, Founder of Freedom Coaching, as they dig into this important topic to reveal a path forward of healing, wholeness, and hope. About Dr. Daniel Meola: Daniel Meola is an adult child of divorce who earned his Ph.D. in Theology of Marriage and Family from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Washington, D.C. He has been leading retreats and support groups for adult children of divorce or separation since 2015 in the Archdiocese of Washington, and in 2018 he founded Life-Giving Wounds with his wife, Bethany, to spread the retreat, support groups, and other ministry to adult children of divorce or separation around the country. Dan and Bethany live in Bowie, MD with their two daughters and a cat.

Episode 30 - The Mindful Catholic with Dr. Gregory Bottaro
Episode 30 - The Mindful Catholic with Dr. Gregory Bottaro
Feeling distracted by your problems? The mindful Catholic is here to help!  Join Dr. Greg Bottaro, Founder of the CatholicPsych Institute & Steve Pokorny, Founder of Freedom Coaching, for a discussion on how in becoming more mindful, we can pinpoint our problems and find lasting solutions. Far from an eastern religion spirituality, mindfulness can help us to become aware of ourselves and guide us to a path of virtue and sanctification. Join us for this very powerful discussion! About Dr. Greg Bottaro: Dr. Greg  is a clinical psychologist and founder of the CatholicPsych Institute. He received his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, a graduate school that integrates Catholic philosophy and theology with sound, empirically validated psychology. Before his degree, Dr. Bottaro discerned a religious vocation with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (CFRs). He lived four years in the Bronx, serving the poor in the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi. Under the mentorship of Fr. Benedict Groeschel, this experience helped him form a spirituality based on Abandonment to Divine Providence which he now applies to psychological principles in his practice. He learned from Fr. Benedict how to discern God's voice and live a life in service to others. Six years after leaving NYC as a friar, he returned as a psychologist and founded the CatholicPsych Institute in 2012, which has since continued to grow and expand, serving clients around the globe. Dr. Bottaro now lives in Connecticut with his wife Barbra and their seven children. Like, click the bell, subscribe, and share so we can get the word out about these very important topics.
