Episode 31: Servant Leadership

We hear a lot about “servant leadership” today, but for a Catholic homeschooling family, it’s a lot more than a buzzword for “enlightened teamwork”—it’s a way of life modeled on the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ. Today we’re talking with Jenny Bales about how her leadership roles teach important lessons to her children.

Episode 26: Choosing a Transformative Lent, with Chris Stefanick!

If God identifies Himself by saying, “I AM,” not, “I DO,” then why do we so easily forget who we are in the eyes of Christ? Today I have the joy of talking with a powerhouse evangelist for the Catholic faith that many of you already know: Mr. Chris Stefanick!

“We destroy arguments and every pretension raising itself against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive in obedience to Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:4)
