Lead the Conversation
Our episodes are released every Monday morning. We will interview a guest that specializes in the topic we are introducing. Then, for the next 48 hours, we will have some open ended conversation on FB and IG. You can join the conversation in the comments section on each episode post. Then, later that week we will gather a few listeners, YOU, to record a follow up podcast like a “breakout session”. We feel like this not a conversation unless YOU are part of it. So, make sure you are following us on FB or IG and leave your questions, encouragements, and inspirations in the comments section. We are all on this journey together, and you are our community. We want to hear from you!

In the Trenches
Megan Schrieber, is a Catholic mother of six, an athlete, and speaker who is eager to address and defend the Catholic Church’s empowering vision of womanhood and religious freedom.
She is opposed to birth control, not because she never used it, but rather because she did. She admits to abandoning Church teachings in favor of the perpetuated notion that contraception was “good.” But she discovered this was just not true and caused her marriage relationship to feel out of synch. Her family also experienced their religious freedom threatened when they requested Theology of the Body be taught at their children’s private, Catholic school, and were met with resistance because the Director of Religious Education was in a same sex marriage. When they withdrew their children in protest, they became outcasts in the court of public opinion, who blamed them for her dismissal. From this Megan has learned how important it is to stand up for your beliefs if you want to ensure that your children will have the right to religious freedom in their lifetime.
In the Trenches
Becky Carter and her tall, dashing husband live in Northwest Arkansas with their five children. After turning away from the Catholic faith for 17 years, they returned and started to find answers to questions that had been plaguing them for years. In their journey back, she discovered the truth about Catholic teachings, and the power of grace that can flood a soul and a family. She can talk for days, especially about her Catholic faith, the effects of birth control, and homeschooling. A lover of hospitality, laughter, and a good Merlot, you can always find an extra car or two in her driveway belonging to the guests her family welcomes. Life with the Carter Clan isn’t always easy, but it’s always a blessing. She is pursuing joy in the trenches of motherhood.
