Rank #1: Hardship and Peace.
It often feels like I am on an endless (and fruitless) quest to make my life at home raising kids just a little bit better. Maybe if we stayed home more...or went out more...or had better toys, or fewer toys. This sort of searching leads to an awful restlessness and discontentedness. For this very reason I was given so much peace by this simple idea shared in my woman's Bible Study: This Side of Heaven, Things Are Just Going to Be Hard. Yes we should endure to always be better. Yes we should prayerfully and thoughtfully consider what is best for our kids...but chasing after some sort of ideal is not only fruitless, but can also lead to discouragement. So, take peace and live as well as you can, knowing that you and your children were not made for this world, but for the next.
Rank #2: J1ST 024: Stephanie on Praying the Rosary with your Husband.
Hey friends! I have a beautiful, challenging and inspiring new podcast episode to share with you today. Stephanie, a wonderful podcast listener emailed me with a RADICAL idea for a podcast episode: Praying the Rosary with your Husband. Daily. My husband and I are definitely not getting in a rosary together right now so I was super interested in what Stephanie had to share--and I wanted to knot if it really was possible to pray the rosary with your spouse each day. And so, I set up a Skype call with Stephanie, I hit record and I was so inspired by Stephanie's experiences and the wonderful tradition of the Rosary we enjoy as Catholics. Here are just a few of the things we discuss in this episode: Simple, practical ideas for getting your rosary in each day, even when life is busy and stressful. How the rosary is the perfect prayer for women who struggle with anxiety How to set up effective and kind accountability to pray the rosary with your husband. Why praying the rosary is not a boring prayer, but the pinnacle of prayer. What praying a rosary might mean for men. Some of the fruit that can come into your life from consistently praying the Rosary The fruit that you can expect when you bring the rosary into your marriage. How praying a rosary can really unite you with Mary and teach you to be a mother. The serious/scary/awesome nature of making a Marian Consecration. I hope that this little episode is inspiring. It certainly was for me. And, as we look to the new year and the habits that we can to acquire and eliminate, maybe the Rosary should be on that list. All the best, and here are a few of the things we referred to while we chatted. LINKS: 33 Days to Morning Glory by Father Michael Gately. The Holy Rosary App for praying the Rosary in the Car...or while doing dishes And once again, thank you for being here. It continues to amaze me that I can chat with other Catholic moms about things that are SUPER Catholic and so many women out there care and listen in. Love it and I love this community.

Rank #2: Throwback Tuesday: 6 Things You Should Do Every Day.
This week we are getting back to basics. We always talk about how we can find peace, balance, and joy in family living, so here are six basic things to do every day to get there. Snippet from the Show There are times in your life when you don’t feel like you can go to God…If that’s you, know that you’re in my heart and in my prayers. I understand that struggle. But don’t let yourself stay there. SHOWNOTES Pray. We are made for relationship with God, and you can’t have one if you aren’t talking to him! Connect. Look for meaningful ways to love and connect with others in your life, from strangers to family members. Create. We are all made to be creative and to enjoy creative things, so make some time for just that every day. (Here is the link to the novel I mentioned, All the Light We cannot See) Move. I am always saying this, and guess what? It’s still true! Your body is an important part of who you are, and it was made for movement. Plan. Thinking about the future and planning ahead can be a great way to improve your mood and keep your daily struggles in perspective. Learn. Look for ways you can grow your brain and expand your knowledge by reading, talking, and asking questions every day. Here is the link to A Mother’s Rule of Life by Holly Pierlot, the helpful book I mentioned at the start of the show.

Rank #2: How To Get More Done In Less Time.
I was putting together a webinar for my Marian Mastermind group about how Catholic women who do business online can get more stuff done in less time when I realized... most all of it applied to moms even if they don't have businesses! I pulled all the relevant parts and put it in this week's episode of Coffee & Pearls! Do you wish you could get more done in less time? Do you want to know how moms can get things done even with little kids around? Do you wish you could stop wasting so much time on your phone or online? This is the Coffee & Pearls episode for you! And in this episode, I also explain that even though all the business books say NOT to let people into your course after you've closed it, I got so many emails and Facebook messages saying people were out of town and missed out on signing up for Catholic Women Shine and guys, it crushed me. I felt so bad. Then I decided, who cares what the man says? I'm my own boss and I say I can reopen it! So, I SUPER DUER MEAN IT THIS TIME! Catholic Women Shine is open until midnight PST January 8th. You have to sign up by Tuesday night and then it closes FOREVER. Or at least for many, many months. I hope you love this episode of Coffee & Pearls.

Rank #1: S03 Episode 15: Intimacy .
There is good news and bad news. The bad news is Michelle, Sr. Miriam, and Heather planned on recording a podcast while at the Royal Retreat held this last weekend in British Columbia. Because Michelle's flight was over 3 hours late they didn't have time to record a new podcast. The good news is we have a recording of Heather's talk from Saturday of the retreat on intimacy. Here are the two videos Heather used in her talk: Adoptions Wedding first looks Discussion Questions: How does it make you feel when God says the words “you are mine”? Do you believe that you are delightful to God, even in your brokenness What do you think blocks your intimacy with God? Journal Questions: What ways do you bond with God and what are the ways you need to open the door to? Journal about what the veil is in your life? What broken parts of the parent child relationship or marriage relationship analogies affect your relationship with God? Quote to Ponder: “There can be no intimacy – emotional intimacy, spiritual intimacy, physical intimacy – without vulnerability. One of the reasons there is such an intimacy deficit today is because we don’t know how to be vulnerable. It’s about being honest with how we feel, about our fears, about what we need. Vulnerability is a glue that holds intimate relationships together” - Brene Brown
Rank #2: S04 Episode 06: Doctors of the Church Part 1: St. Catherine of Siena.
Today we begin our 5 part series on the women Doctors of the Church by first exploring the life of St. Catherine of Siena. St. Catherine was a preacher, influencer, writer, miracle worker, and mystic. In this episode, we chat about Catherine’s example of intimacy with God, her fiery heart and voice of conviction, how her hidden life fueled her passion for the Church and restoration, and how we can follow her example in specific ways. One Thing We Love This Week: Sr. Miriam's One Thing - The Divine Mercy Shrine in Poland Michelle's One Thing - Brother Isaiah’s new song - https://aleteia.org/2018/10/17/brother-isaiahs-love-song-for-the-bride-is-balm-for-a-wounded-church/ and check out his album Poco a Poco Michelle’s other one thing - Rosary bracelet - https://chewslife.com/new-siena-rosary-bracelet-dalmatian-jasper/ Heather's One Thing - The St. Francis of Assisi Movie “A Sign of Contradiction” by Fr. Dave Pivonka and 4pm Media https://www.signofcontradiction.com/ Discussion Questions: What does restored femininity look like in your life? Where can you see God in your childhood? Where do you need to ask Him to reveal Himself? What do you love? What burns your heart? Where is Christ calling you to true love that radiates from within? Journal Questions: How is God inviting you to bring your feminine genius to your world? What suffering in your life is God asking you to unite with His, that He wants to restore and heal? How has the enemy come into my life to seek, kill, and destroy things that God wants to use to bring life and glory to the world? What areas in your hidden life within, need to experience mercy and transformation so that you can be a witness of restoration to the Church? Quote to Ponder: “I promise you, that, by this means, her beauty will be restored to her, not by the knife nor by cruelty, but peacefully, by humble and continued prayer, by the sweat and the tears shed by the fiery desire of My servants” - Jesus to St. Catherine of Siena *Scripture for the week - Ezekiel 37:1-7 * The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone.

Rank #1: 85: Theology of the Body from a Feminist Perspective ft. Christopher West.
If we believe that men + women are inherently different, how can we discover the reality about womanhood without falling into harmful stereotypes? How do women who AREN’T mothers fit into God’s design for gender? How does God’s design for women’s bodies relate to deeper meanings about our world? How can women who don’t fit into your typical “meek and mild” box live out Theology of the Body and take part in salvation history when sometimes in the Church we’re smacked in the face with judgement and outdated gender roles? These are just SOME of the questions I had about TOB. There’s nobody better to chat about them with than Christopher West, the president of the Theology of the Body Institute. It was an honor to talk with a world-renowned Catholic speaker and educator and to join forces on the truth behind Catholic feminism. Enjoy! (You also might hear a bit of my husband trying to put my daughter to bed and her not having it, what else is new 🙄😂 How ironic that while we’re talking about breastfeeding my baby’s going nuts and refusing the good ole plastic bottle…) Today’s episode is brought to you by Meaningful Market, a shop that believes beauty and justice go hand in hand.

Rank #2: 114: The Truth About Birth Control + the Marquette Method of NFP ft. Sarah Tramonte.
Let’s talk about hormonal birth control. The fact that most Catholic women are on it, and the fact that few of us know what it even does. Today’s podcast guest, Sarah Tramonte, is a registered nurse + an NFP instructor. Sarah walks us through what the heck birth control even does, why it’s SO frequently prescribed, if there’s ever an occasion where it might be the right choice for a non sexually-active person (her answer may surprise you!) and whether or not it’s really an abortifacient. 🤯 Sarah and I also talk WHY so many Catholic women have turned to hormonal birth control. There’s a severe lack of education in both our schools and pre-cana classes to teach women how fertility works and what a period should even look like. This lack of emphasis on such an important part of women’s health is, IMHO, a glaring spot of sexism within our healthcare industry. Sarah + I talk about why she loves Marquette and who that method is right for, as well as what to do if you just consistently feel like NFP DOESN’T WORK for you. 😥 Above all, I hope this episode encourages you to take time to learn about your fertility. Whether you’re single, have seven kids, or somewhere in between, understanding your cycle and this aspect of your womanhood is vital (literally, Sarah says your fertility should be considered a vital sign like your blood pressure or temperature).
