Living and Thriving on the Sexuality Spectrum ft. Anna Carter

Today on the podcast I’m chatting with Anna Carter, the co-founder of The Eden Invitation. Anna is a daughter of God who experiences bisexuality while living and thriving in the Catholic Church. Anna talks about discovering she wasn’t only attracted to men, how straight feminists can love their not-so-straight sisters more, and how her life has been shaped by Jesus Christ. (PS: we swear a bit, so this episode may not be suited for little ears!)

This was a super hard interview for me to do, and I explain why in the intro. I stressed out about it for, like, weeks, which is ridiculously stupid because Anna is amazing and beautiful and brilliant. But I just want everyone to know how much I love them and that if this is a hard topic for you, I see you I see you I see you. Promise.

How Beauty Saves and Alcoholism Destructs ft. Erica Tighe

Today on the podcast, I’m honored to be chatting with Erica Tighe. Erica is the founder of Be A Heart Design, which has worked with clients like Blessed Is She and Leah Darrow. Erica has an amazing story about being inspired to start her company, learning how to discern God’s will in our lives, and overcoming an alcohol addiction. We also talk quite a bit about beauty, and why it even matters in the world. When refugees are struggling to escape their countries and people are struggling with mental illness and our earth is slowly being destroyed, why does pretty calligraphy matter? Erica has such a great response to that question, and I can’t wait for y’all to hear it!

Topics discussed:

Theology of the Body and the Pain of Miscarriage ft. Carrie Archual

Today on the podcast we’re speaking with Carrie Archual of the Theology of the Body Institute! Carrie is speaking with us about TOB and what it says about men vs. women. We also talk about her two miscarriages and how we as Catholics should respond to this tragedy. Lastly, we discuss PPD and the effect its had on her life and her family. These are some taboo topics that I was honored to speak with Carrie about. I mean, think about it—if we believe abortion is a child dying…we should believe the same about miscarriage. We should properly mourn miscarried babies and support our friends going through this tragedy, but instead, we usually just feel uncomfortable talking about it. I was so grateful that Carrie was vulnerable and honest, and it was a pleasure to speak with her.

Topics discussed:

  • How Carrie was introduced to TOB
  • What TOB says about women
  • Why TOB is so needed in the world today
  • How Carrie's two miscarriages have deeply impacted her
  • What it's like to be a working mom

Embracing Freedom in Your Finances ft. Amanda Teixeira

Jesus tells us not to worry about money, right? And the rich man is supposed to give everything he has to the poor.

Amanda talks all about why Catholics should care about their bank accounts, why it isn’t unbiblical to care about money, and how you can take small steps today that will pay off in your financial future.

Lightening the Load and Clinging to Prayer ft. Elise Crawford

"She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.”

 If anyone’s ever told you that women who work aren’t biblical, feel free to point them towards Proverbs 31! Today, we’re talking to Elise Crawford, the founder and CEO of Ringlet, a DC-based marketing company that helps female entrepreneurs market their services and brand their businesses. Elise shares all about how prayer helped kickstart her business, how she continues to make God the center of her company and life, and the power of women who work. It was an honor to speak with Elise and I think her episode holds value for all women, whether you’re a SAHM, worker bee, or somewhere in between!

Faith, Feminism and the Vocation of Marriage ft. Ana Glaze

Is marriage a feminist vocation? Today’s guest certainly thinks so! We’re talking to Ana Glaze, one half of That Catholic Couple on YouTube. She and her husband share daily vlogs for their fans (hey doughnut squad!) about life as a fun, faithful Catholic couple. Ana beautifully shares why she and her husband started vlogging, how to keep marriage a vocation instead of an idol, how she balances being a strong wife with that awkward Bible verse about listening to your husband, how her own fractured relationship with her father has affected her marriage, and the importance of weekly family meetings.

Cultivating a Global Mindset ft. Beth Awalt

"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one." - St. Teresa of Calcutta.

This quote completely sums up my view of social justice. Today I'm speaking with Beth Awalt, the co-founder of The Starfish Foundation. After going on a mission trip to Ecuador, Beth was so moved that she began a non-profit to empower and equip schoolchildren there.

What Losing Everything I Own Taught Me About Jesus ft. Kallin Zehren

"If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." - Jesus. 

When Kallin, a Tulane student, came home from dinner at her sorority house to find her home burning down, it was a radical moment in her life. Jesus didn't ask her to give Him her possessions--he straight up took 'em. Kallin and I have a conversation on what it was like to lose everything she owned, how the Lord used the tragedy to instill in her gratitude, and what the generosity of others taught her about God. 

I've known Kallin for four years and she's an inspiring, amazing young woman. I'm so happy to be able to share our chat with you today!

Topics discussed:

  • How Kallin helped the Tulane Catholic Center grow and flourish 
  • How to evangelize when the community isn't exactly ripe for evangelization

Surviving Assault And Offering Radical Forgiveness ft. Rosario Rodriguez

Today on the podcast, I'm speaking with Rosario Rodriguez about how to forgive others when the worst has happened to us. Rosario is the survivor of two violent crimes, and her story of going from a suicidal depression to offering forgiveness to her attackers is simply beautiful. 

"For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." That's all well and good when, you know, someone cuts me off on the highway. Or someone gossips about me a little. I self-righteously smile, pat myself on the back, and offer forgiveness as if it's the price I have to pay to get into Heaven. But what about bigger things? Family disagreements that have lasted years? True, hurtful incidents with friends? Being assaulted? Being shot

Rosario's insights on forgiveness are straight from the heart. She's had to forgive the most terrible crimes we can think of. It's a powerful testimony, and I'm honored to share it with you today! 

Topics discussed:

  • Rosario's assaults and how she believes the Virgin Mary may have intervened
  • How her first assault led her into a suicidal depression
  • How a priest helped her learn what true forgiveness is
  • When to know when you need to distance yourself from someone and if it's possible to still offer them forgiveness

Dating With Dignity In Our Modern Culture ft. Lisa Cotter

Today, I'm grilling speaker and writer Lisa Cotter on all things dating. We also talk about how Lisa met her husband, her ministry Made to Magnify, and her newest book, Dating Detox. 

Y'all, dating is a stressful thing for a Catholic feminist to talk about. On the one hand, vocation is extremely important. Our vocations help us get to Heaven and the relationship between you and your spouse is supposed to resemble that of Christ and His Church. But on the other hand, it can be really hard to hear that when you're trying to climb the corporate ladder, not waste your time with guys who think buying you a tequila shot is the most romantic thing they can do, and not live in the future when you could be embracing the now. It was so refreshing to speak with Lisa, an amazing Catholic feminist, on how important it is to prayerfully discern the relationships in your life. 

Topics discussed:

  • Lisa's ministry, Made to Magnify
  • If there's a "one" out there waiting for you
  • If evangedating is worth the risk (here's the blogpost she mentioned!)
  • If you'll just "know" when you meet the right guy

I have way fatter arms than my friends and no Instagram filter can possibly fix 'em. DELETE. 

Or on a more serious note, have you ever found yourself stressing out at a restaurant over why they didn't put the calorie counts on the menus? Or wondering if you'll look super weird if you order your burger without a bun? Have you ever over-exercised because the one thing you felt like you could control was the number on the scale? Have you ever felt like maybe this obsession was becoming a little more serious than you'd previously thought?

Whether you have a full-blown ED or you just wish you spent less time criticizing your body, Megan's vulnerable, beautiful story will inspire you to kick Satan in the butt and overcome any disordered eating habits that may be plaguing you.

The Dignity of the Poor and Homeless ft. Yvonne Chamberlain

“There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man's table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried, and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’ And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father's house— for I have five brothers—so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’ But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.'"

DANG. 

That's usually my response to that story, followed by an impending sense of dread. Oh, crap. How often do I walk past panhandlers or the homeless in my own community and do a fat load of nothing? 

I'm so excited to be speaking with Yvonne Chamberlain today. Yvonne used to coordinate a homeless shelter in Columbia, MO, and we talk all about the correct way to treat the poor and homeless. We also talk about the idea that people "deserve" to be poor, the fear of giving panhandlers money when you don't know what they'll use it on, and judging those who've made choices that have left them homeless. It's truly an episode you don't want to miss. 

This episode does offer some concrete things you can do to reach out to the poor in your own community, but it won't solve every question on your heart. That's because sometimes we really won't know these answers until we get to Heaven. But what I hope this episode does is light a fire in you to keep learning, get outside your bubble, and think of the poor and homeless as beloved children of God.

  • How Yvonne got started at Room at the Inn
  • Why it's so important for Catholics to go outside of their own cultural bubbles

Women's Healthcare and Natural Family Planning ft. Leah Jacobson

OK, honesty time: I had no idea what Natural Family Planning was until college. Even then, I thought it was just a way for super Jesus-y people to use birth control. But ever since I became familiar with the Creighton Model, I've felt SO empowered and educated. 

There's a narrative going around right now that women's healthcare = Planned Parenthood, abortion, and birth control. But that narrative hurts young girls, puts unrealistic expectations on their beauty, and stifles the very natural process of ovulation. If you're thinking "huh?", then this episode is perfect for you. We go deep into why Leah started Guiding Star Centers, which are non-profit health centers for women, and how Guiding Star is working to change the narrative around women's fertility and healthcare. 

This episode is NOT just for married couples. It's for any woman who wants to know a little more about her body. We're not handing you a pill that will free your face of acne and get rid of your cramps. What we're handing you is education--about what your body does, what God thinks about it, and how to live out His plan for your fertility in a natural, God-honoring way. 

Topics discussed:

  • Why Leah felt moved to launch Guiding Star
  • How hormonal birth control is used to put unrealistic beauty expectations on young girls
  • What Natural Family Planning is and how it differs from hormonal birth control 
  • How Guiding Star is working to change the narrative of women's healthcare
