255: Biblical Fantasy Draft, Copycats & Proposals w/Jon Blevins

Forte Catholic

Jon "Bearded" Blevins cohosts. We start the show with the story of why he recently had to get stitches in his hand and then he and Taylor each share the story of how they proposed to their wives. The next segment introduces the "Biblical Fantasy Draft" where Jon and Taylor each select the best biblical characters to run Forte Catholic: CEO, CFO, HR, etc. A really fun segment with some insight into which characters from the Bible would be great at running a modern Catholic media non-profit. Plus, you might learn about some biblical characters you've never heard of before. Taylor tries to close the show by sounding smart with a discussion on behavioral cognition that he learned from "The Happiness Lab" podcast. It's about how we mimic the people we are around and this concept's importance in our faith growth. Enjoy!

Jon Blevins makes his podcast debut | Forte Flashbacks

Forte Catholic

We've been doing this show for five years and we know that not everyone has listened since back in the day. So we've started a new series called Forte Flashbacks highlighting the best moments of the show. Taylor listens to the interview and then shares his thoughts and highlights from the conversation. This week is Jon’s first appearance back in 2018. It's amazing how much has changed in three years but also seeing the seeds of friendship being sown in this conversation.

238: Reviews, Restaurants & Restrooms w/Jon Blevins

Forte Catholic

The show kicks off with a hilarious terrible review of Taylor and the show. He tells John what was said about him, who came to his rescue and...how the mean reviewer was...right??? This leads to a discussion on reviewing things in general and how we can use it as a way to shed light into dark places. Next, they play the new Imitate, Intercess or Ignore game where they each give each other three saints and have to choose what they will do with each. Hilarity and learning a bit about the saints at the same time...and maybe some who didn't actually exist... Finally, Taylor shares an odd story about some Scripture verses he found in a restroom. It was...strange...to say the least. Enjoy!!! Subscribe/Rate Never miss out on the craziness of each episode by hitting the subscribe button RIGHT NOW!

229: Crosses, Christian Podcast Roulette & Routines w/Jon Blevins

Forte Catholic

Taylor & Jon kick off this week's episode with a conversation on how it's often hard to ask for and receive help, especially in the things we pride ourselves in. We look at Simon helping Jesus carry his cross and the Our Father for insight into how our spiritual lives seem to be harder to take care of these days. The second segment brings us to Christian Podcast Roulette. This is a game Taylor found of the interwebs that generates a Christian podcast name for you. Taylor and each of the cohosts get a new name for their podcasts. Hilarious! Finally, Taylor gripes about how everyone says you need to wake up early to be successful. It's hogwash! They discuss morning routines and finding what works for you. Enjoy! Pray the Stations of the Cross https://youtu.be/2hX1Ev6f3mY The Roast of Fr.

122: Guest Joel Stepanek on humility & Jon Blevins update from inside Exodus 90

Forte Catholic

Jon Blevins co-hosts and gives an update from inside Exodus 90. Taylor's take on the matter has become quite public so we let someone who's in the middle of doing it report on how it's going. Tune in to find out! Joel Stepanek first came on the show as guest co-host on episode 33 and now rejoins to share about humility. His new book "Chasing Humility" is coming out just in time for Lent! It revolves around the Litany of Humility, which Jon and Taylor are terrible at. Joel gives insight into how many of us misunderstand humility. It was a fun and eye-opening convo. The finish off the show, Taylor and Jon discuss dry spells in the spiritual life, how to deal with them & how to get out. And Taylor shares a modern day parenting miracle ;)Support Forte Catholic
