Recorded Thursday, December 5, 2013

We're back after a two week break!  Thanks for listening. We've got a chatty baby once again today! Here's what we talked about in this episode:

If you scroll to the bottom of this post, you can play this podcast from the embedded Wizzard Player. 

Here's a quick rundown of what we chatted about:


We chat about Thanksgiving with our families, Fr. Ricardo's podcast on keeping the sabbath, Turkey Judgement Day, and the television show 19 Kids and Counting.

Life with Kids:

We discuss keeping Christ in Christmas, share some Christmas traditions, and how we've tried to scale down the pile of presents.

Shoutouts and Feedback:

We chat about fellow parishioner Phil Frederick's appearance on The Journey Home on EWTN, Dr. Ray Guerendi's radio show, and give a big shoutout thank you to our five seven subscribers.  THANK YOU!

Food for the Journey:

Marianne remembers that she needs to start reading her Little Blue Book for Advent and Angie reads a "Letter from God" that has been a good reminder to both of us when we find ourselves overwhelmed.

Text of "Letter from God" by Anonymous:

Good Morning,

I am God.  Today I will be handling all of your problems,  Please remember that I do not need your help.  

If the devil happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, DO NOT attempt to resolve it.  Kindly put it in the SFJTD (something for Jesus to do) box.  It will be addressed in MY time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it or attempt to remove it.  Holding on or removal will delay the resolution of your problem.  If it is a situation that you think you are capable of handling, please consult me in prayer to be sure that it is the proper resolution.

Because I do not sleep nor do I slumber, there is no need for you to lose any sleep.  Rest my child.  If you need to contact me, I am only a prayer away.

With all my love, 




  1. Listened to my first episode today, and I really enjoyed it! I felt like you guys were riding in the car with me and I was just eavesdropping on your conversation. Also, you guys have another mutual friend who is a big Matt Walsh fan. I love his blog! Not as much as I love you guys though :)

    1. Thanks for listening and commenting, SSM! We are glad that you took the time to listen and that you felt like you were just part of the conversation! Much love to ya!
