Recorded Thursday, January 9, 2014

We're back after a long winter's break, podcasting with one snoozing baby and one tired but chatty baby - expect some lively audio!  We welcome our first guest to the show in this episode.  Thanks for listening! 

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 the Polar Vortex and remember the last time it was so terribly cold (20 years ago), talk about the Christmas season, and introduce our guest, our friend and the mom who introduced us to Catholic podcasts, Barb Patterson.

Life with Kids:

We chat with Barb and she shares her thoughts on being a mom of many, large families, and being an Old Mom and a New Mom.  We also share our Faith and Family Tip of the Week.

Shoutouts and Feedback:

We've got mail!  We share an email from one of our listeners.

Food for the Journey:

With the season of resolutions upon us, we share some words of inspiration from C.S. Lewis on resolutions.

TEXT FROM C.S. LEWIS, "The Business of Heaven"

"January 1: I know all about the despair of overcoming chronic temptations.  It is not serious, provided self-offended petulance, annoyance at breaking records, impatience, etc. don't get the upper hand.  No amount of falls will really undo us if we keep on picking ourselves up each time.  We shall of course be very muddy and tattered children by the time we reach home.  But the bathrooms are all ready, the towels put out, and the clean clothes in the airing cupboard.  The only fatal thing is to lose one's temper and give it up.  It is when we notice the dirt that God is most present in us; it is the very sign of His presence."
