It's a heavy one, but I feel that it's important to share this, even though it's hard.I'm sharing my story of losing my seventh baby. Motivation has to go hand in hand with suffering. We need the support, prayers, and encouragement of one another when we're carrying our crosses, and that's one of the graces I found in the helplessness of my miscarriage.Even (or maybe especially!) in the midst of suffering, we have the opportunity to receive love, grace, and the good intentions of those around us.Pray for me, friends.

Welcome to my chat with film director Cameron O'Hearn!

Visit Cameron's site  Horselord Films, and see more of his work, particularly his moving documentary about his father.  Cameron shares with us how his love for the Latin Mass developed, and the shocking history of the Latin Mass in the past decades, and why the Latin Mass may be so closely tied to belief in the True Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.We go way back in Cameron's own story, and talk about how he came to be a filmmaker, what inspires and surprises him about making films, what film has in common with evangelization, what Beauty means for us in the world today, and keeping the most important things front and center in our lives.Challenges for listeners from Cameron:Do something today to make someone's day special!

Welcome to the second of a 3-part series on the unique and yet also universal wounds that we experience as women.Today, we're talking about Dreams. We define what dreams are, and we look at scripture to help us understand how our dreams are God-given, and they don't have to be selfish! We dive into the idea of dreaming with the Lord: this includes discernment in our dreams, learning how the devil attacks us particularly in our dreams, and what obstacles get in the way of our dreaming. We also consider at some of the lies we hear from the world about our dreams, and even lies we might hear within the Church about our dreams!Read the scriptures with us: Psalm 37:4, Proverbs 16:3, Proverbs 16:9, Proverbs 19:21, Isaiah 55:8, Ecclesiastes 3:1, John 10:10, Matthew 25:14.  Follow Alex on Instagram and at her blog https://www.joymamablog.com/.Tune in to our next episode on the unique wounds that women experience around Babies, and our previous episode on the universal Wound of Women.Challenges for listeners from Alex: Sit in silence with the LordGet to know yourself and your temperamentsHEY YOU!

Welcome to the first of a 3-part series on the unique and yet also universal wounds that we experience as women.  We talk about where these wounds come from, going all the way back to the very first woman, Eve. We talk about our ability, as women, to be mothers, and the nuances of what that means theologically and also practically. We look at how and why our fertility and mentalities around fertility are the primary place that women experience attack. This ultimately means that our relationships suffer from these wounds: with God the Father, with members of the opposite sex, and also with fellow women. And although these wounds are universal, we see that these wounds show up differently for every woman.The only remedy is to give our wounds back to the Lord, at the foot of the cross and to ask the Lord for healing!Follow Alex on Instagram and at her blog https://www.joymamablog.com/.

Welcome back to the podcast, Blake Brouillette! If you missed our previous conversation, check that out here!We talk about the services Christ in the City provides in the city of Denver. The purpose is twofold:  to form missionaries, and to serve the poor in the chronically homeless.  The hope is that this mission will expand beyond Denver into other communities in need!I share how "Blessing Bags", an idea Blake shared with me previously, has changed our family's life. We talk about what it means to see others not as strangers, but as someone who needs love. We also talk about the absolutely indispensable need for community as the basis of mission life (you can't serve strangers if you don't love the people you live with!) We also each share our experiences of thinking we could change the world, and being humbled by what we could learn from the poor. Blake shares some wisdom about finding your own Calcutta, and figuring out how to serve exactly where you are. If doing something about homelessness is on your heart, please donate to Christ in the City and help them serve and expand! Join Christ in the City on October 2nd for a Virtual Annual Celebration (check the website for details). Challenge from Blake: Look to your left. Look to your right.

Toward the end when you brought up advice for dating, I was excited that you were making sure to include people in a different life phase than you. Then everyone started talking about how all the worries you have just increase when you get married, then again when you have kids. Yes, worries don't go away when you get married or have kids. But that doesn't give anyone the right to discount the struggles of anyone else. Concerns change. But you cannot possibly know the strife in everyone else's hearts. Yes, you've been single at some point. That does not mean you understand all single people. You found your "person" but there are many people searching, and as time goes on their struggle only increases and hope decreases. I've often heard that parents forget how hard newborns are because if they didn't they'd never do it again. Is it possible you're discounting the pain of others simply because you've moved past that and are on to other challenges?

Excellent! Leah is fun and light but also discusses important topics. She is not afraid to share her personal testimony and interviews a wide range of inspiring people. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to grow in their faith, become more education or feel inspired.
