Today on the Mighty Is Her Call Podcast, Annie and Jolly welcome you back for season two and dive into the story of the Prodigal Son. They will examine each character in the familiar story and consider the many ways the Lord can speak to us about where we may find ourselves in various seasons of motherhood (prodigal, older son or Father). We know the Lord is always calling us home,and in our motherhood we have a special privilege of calling our children home to Him as well. Join us as we reflect on the perfect love of a forgiving Father.  Scripture Reference: Luke 15:11-32 Mighty Is Her Call is a Catholic mothers' ministry that encourages women who have embraced the call to openness to life by proclaiming the radically Christ-like nature of motherhood.

In this episode, Jolly and Annie wrap up season one by discussing how to find joy in connecting with the sacred, Christ-like calling of motherhood. They also recap the reasons we started the podcast and four themes of impact we have experienced and witnessed. Together they explore how sharing in our conversations can be catalysts to increasing understanding and faith in the Mighty One, a God who calls us to himself and then imparts a particular calling to be champions of change through our motherhood. Finally, we touch on some powerful things God is doing in and through the ministry and why walking this high adventure together is a truly amazing gift.  Blog Post Reference - https://mightyishercall.com/what-if-our-conversations-are-catalysts-2/ Luke 1:49
Today, Jolly and Annie will discuss moments in motherhood wherein one feels unseen or unheard in the journey of raising children. How do we exercise God-appointed authority as mothers? How do we bring life and not merely demand our own agendas? We will discuss the examples in Sacred Scripture of two kinds of leadership found in the New and the Old Testaments. What is the aim? Are we called to build monuments of perfection? We will discuss the call to lay a foundation in humility, service and charity that allows God to build cathedrals of goodness through our call to family life. Isaiah 22:19-23 - Old Testament reading on leadership Matthew 16:18 - New Testament reading on leadership  Romans 11:33-36 - Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How inscrutable are his judgments and how unsearchable his ways! For who has known the mind of the Lord or who has been his counselor? Or who has given the Lord anything that he may be repaid? For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.    
Motherhood alters nearly every area of our lives. We sleep less, our meals are often cold, our time is not our own, not to mention our bodies. But our prayer lives often become completely unrecognizable. Today, Annie and Jolly will kick off a two-part series considering some practical ways we can actively include prayer in our daily lives in this wonderful, and often all-consuming vocation.  Thomas Merton quote from Contemplative Prayer:  “By ‘prayer of the heart’ we seek God himself present in the depths of our being and meet him there by invoking the name of Jesus in faith, wonder and love.”  CCC 2259: Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God Scriptures for the Episode: Isaiah 40:31:  But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Matthew 11:28: Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Isaiah 40:29: He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength Colossians 3:15: Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which ]indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:17: Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. Psalm 107:8: Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! Psalm 69:30: I will praise the name of God with song and magnify Him with thanksgiving. Philippians 4:6-7: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Comment and let us know ways you’ve made your prayer life work, or reach out to us anytime with questions or comments at info@mightyishercall.com

Your birthday, an anniversary, Mother’s Day–these days can be a complicated combination of expectation, anticipation, joy, and delight, often mixed with disappointment and resentment when what we’ve imagined is a far cry from what the day delivers. Annie and Jolly share their experiences with this familiar cycle by discussing some occasions where they were left deflated after a special day. They also share what they have learned over the years that has allowed for their depth of understanding to flourish with freedom from resentment on these high-stakes holidays. Joy is found in Christ’s mighty call, allowing for these special days with children to be fulfilling and abundant!  
Sometimes the words “self-care” can create an unpleasant response in us, making us feel like it’s just one more thing we are failing at, or one more thing we need to fit in. Today, Annie and Jolly will talk about how the simplest form of self-care is spending time with dear friends. They will examine Psalm 27:9 and share their experiences of how the Lord has renewed and refreshed them through deep and meaningful friendships. They will also offer some suggestions on ways to make time for the gift of friendships. 
Vacation vs. A Trip

Vacation vs. A Trip

2023-06-2728:34

This time of year is full of late nights, pool days and extra family time. It also often includes a family “vacation.” Jolly and Annie discuss why they think it’s better to call it a “trip,” since packing, prep, long days in the car and adventures away from home with children are anything but a vacation. So, if you are looking ahead to a big family trip and wondering if you have the strength and energy to pull it off, you aren’t alone. They will also remind you that it’s worth it and that these times with our families, however exhausting, are an opportunity to build family culture, create memories and be grateful for the years we have with these beautiful humans.      
As we approach the summer months, we thought we would spend some time considering the change in routine and the challenges that accompany those changes. Annie and Jolly will share some of the things that have worked for their families and offer some tips for keeping your sanity as you continue to give your all for your children.  Mighty Is Her Call is a Catholic mothers ministry that encourages women who have embraced the call to motherhood by proclaimingthe radically Christ-like nature of the vocation.

May can be the craziest month for moms. Today, Jolly and Annie will look, in a special way, at the letting go that often defines this time of year. Whether you are grieving the baby who will go off to school next year, the high school graduate who is anxious to move on, or the college graduate who isn’t sure what’s next, we know there is much to learn. We will discuss the call to surrender and encourage each other to let go as we give our children over to the Lord and see them launched into the next season of their lives.

Today we are going to discuss how sometimes we need to take a minute to take care of ourselves but that our children also love us whether we are showered and clean or not. Annie will also tell a story of one of her most humiliating moments as a mom as we examine the truth that our children can be a source of humility and humor but we know God works it all together for good for our salvation and for their good as well.  Scripture for this episode: Philippians 3:14-15  Mighty Is Her Call is a Catholic mothers ministry that encourages women who have embraced the call to openness to life by proclaiming the radically Christ-like nature of motherhood.

In today’s episode we change gears a little and talk about some of the humorous absurdities of motherhood. Whether your hope is constantly dashed over not getting to go to the bathroom alone, or your children can’t find their shoes on the way out the door to Sunday mass, these universal truths certainly bring humor to our days. Join us as we laugh ‘till we cry about interrupted phone calls, lost scissors and more.

As we head into Holy Week we want to spend some time reflecting on the Triduum and ways to observe these holy days as a family, particularly in light of the vocation of motherhood. We know the season of motherhood you are in makes all the difference in how you observe these days. We also want to remind you that as you embrace the self-gift of motherhood, you are placed in a unique position to enter into Christ’s suffering and total abandonment of his will to the Father.   Holy Thursday Traditions - Blog Post  The Mighty Is Her Call Rosary Guide (used in the closing prayer) Divine Intimacy, Fr Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen  “He exhausts the resources of His love, and offers Himself to man, not only as Redeemer, who will die for him on the Cross, but also as the food which will nourish him. He will feed man with his own Flesh and Blood; moreover death might claim Him in a few hours, but the Eucharist will perpetuate His real, living presence until the end of time.” (Divine Intimacy, 392)     “Good Friday,” continues Fr. Gabriel, “is the day more than any other that invites us to enter into the thicket of the trials and pains of the Son of God and not only with the abstract consideration of the mind, but also with the practical disposition of the will to accept suffering voluntarily, in order to unite and assimilate ourselves to the Crucified.” (Divine Intimacy, 395)    “Seeing with the eyes of Christ, I can give to others much more than their outward necessities; I can give them the look of love which they crave.”  Pope Benedict XVI, God Is Love: Deus Caritas Est
In today’s episode we check-in with where we are spiritually and what the Lord is doing in us (so far) this Lenten season. We recognize that this vocation can feel like a barrier to spiritual flourishing, particularly if we are longing for quiet contemplation. We will examine the ways the Lord is calling us to greater holiness and surrender through all the seasons of motherhood and discuss ways we can surrender anew midway through Lent and beyond.  Scripture: John 15:16  Mighty Is Her Call is a Catholic mothers ministry that encourages women who have embraced the call to openness to life by proclaiming the radically Christ-like nature of motherhood.

Today’s episode is titled “You are the Potter; I am the Clay” and we will be talking about the beautiful analogy of the Potter and the Clay in scripture, and dig into that imagery a little as it relates to motherhood and the work God is doing in our lives and in our domestic churches.  Scriptures: Isaiah 64:8; Philippians 1:6  St Irenaeus Quotes  “You do not make God; God makes you. If you are God’s artifact, then wait for the hand of the Master which makes everything at the proper time, at the time proper for you who are being created… “Offer him a soft and malleable heart; then keep the shape in which the Master molds you. Retain your moisture, so that you do not harden and lose the imprint of his fingers. By preserving your structure you will rise to perfection. God’s artistry will conceal what clay is in you. His hand fashioned a foundation in you; he will cover you inside and out with pure gold and silver. He will so adorn you that the King himself will desire your beauty.” Mighty Is Her Call is a Catholic mothers ministry that encourages women who have embraced the call to openness to life by proclaiming the radically Christ-like nature of motherhood.

The season of Lent begins tomorrow and on today’s show we will discuss ways to embrace simplicity—to be truly open to what the Lord is calling us to and to let go of what we think it should look like in this season. We will also examine the nature of this vocation as essentially Lenten and ways to enter into that reality in a new way during this season.  Scripture references: Romans 5:3-4; Philippians 1:29 Man's Search For Meaning by Victor Frankl Mighty Is Her Call is a Catholic mothers ministry that encourages women who have embraced the call to openness to life by proclaiming the radically Christ-like nature of motherhood.

Today we will discuss the frequent disparities between what we think about how we are doing as a mom and what is true. We know we are often our own worst critics, so we believe it is worth taking some time to remind you what an amazing job you are doing in this vocation.  Mighty Is Her Call is a Catholic mothers ministry that encourages women who have embraced the call to openness to life by proclaiming the radically Christ-like nature of motherhood.

In today’s podcast we will discuss the concept of Ego-drama vs.Theo-drama as explained by Fr. Hans Urs von Balthasar and how that distinction can inspire the proper perspective to the highs and lows of motherhood, including the mundane details of our lives. We will consider that it is in the seemingly small moments that God reveals the most about himself.  Scripture references for this episode: Romans 8:28; Isaiah 6:1  Fr.

Today we talk about the promises of God in light of suffering and hardship and where we find our hope and peace, especially as we surrender to God’s will in our motherhood. Whether we are struggling with the day to day tasks of constant giving, grappling with heartache and loss, or just feeling plain overwhelmed, we know we serve a God who delights over us with singing. Come find refuge in Him, with us.    Scripture references for this episode: Psalm 37:4; Romans 8:38; John 11:35  Mighty Is Her Call is a Catholic mothers ministry that encourages women who have embraced the call to openness to life by proclaiming the radically Christ-like nature of motherhood.

In today’s episode, we will begin by examining the mightiness of God and the essential need to see yourselves through His eyes. We will examine our great need for God’s mightiness in every season of motherhood, particularly when we feel unseen and unappreciated and how to look at these hardships through the lens of God’s greatness.  Scripture references for this episode: Psalm 147:5; Job 26:14; Zephaniah 3:17 ; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Psalm 56:8.
