Episode 5: Lead the Conversation – Friendship and Laughter
HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED!
This week is our segment called, Lead the Conversation. This is where we invite you, our listener, to join us to keep unpacking the previous week’s topic – Friendship and Laughter.
We invited listeners Christy White and Adrea Stuecker to lead the conversation for us. Christy and Adrea share with us about the burden of loneliness and friendly confrontations. But don’t worry, we get to the laughter too.
Christy White and her husband,Tim, have 5 children (3 boys/2 girls) and have been married for 20 years. Their eldest son is in his first year of college and she home schools the 4 younger ones in Bella Vista, Arkansas. Christy is a convert (22 years this Easter!) and absolutely loves being Catholic! Bring her a great cup of coffee and a good book and you will be her best friend!
Adrea Stuecker is a convert to the catholic faith, the wife of Jason, and mama to three sweet babes Hampton (8), Hadley (5), and one son born into heaven. Adrea is a self proclaimed recovering CPA trying to suppress her type A-ness in the midst of motherhood’s messiness. She loves cooking, baking, and anything her kids are into. Her favorite saints are St. Faustina and St. Mary Magdalene.
Adrea wold love for you to come say hello and connect on IG.
