    FoC 124: Waking Up From Disordered Attachments with Seth Haines

    FoC 124: Waking Up From Disordered Attachments with Seth Haines

    The psychology of addiction is fascinating. What makes us reach for the things that we’re addicted to? Maybe we’re not addicted to heroin but do we have disordered attachments? When pain hits us as stress or emotional trauma do we reach for that glass of wine, binge a show on Netflix, or refresh those social media apps to see if one more like is there? What are the spiritual implications to numbing our pain with the things that can’t heal our pain?







    In this episode we’re talking with Seth Haines about his newest release, The Book of Waking Up. Seth is a husband, dad, lawyer, and writer. Like many of us, he’s no stranger to addiction and he shares about his own story in this new book. He also dives into the why behind our addictions and how we are so prone to have disordered attachments even to good things that are gifts from God!







    In this episode we discuss attachments and their failure to satisfy the human heart that is wired for Divine Love. Seth shares about how the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola can help us be honest with ourselves and examine our attachments. And we talk about how Mary is the model for a human being truly alive to life–it’s pain and it’s joys. It’s a great conversation so grab a cup of coffee (maybe? do you have a disordered attachment to caffeine like us?) and listen in!

    FoC 123: Bringing Beauty to the World Through the Beauty of Home with Carrie Gress and Noelle Mering

    FoC 123: Bringing Beauty to the World Through the Beauty of Home with Carrie Gress and Noelle Mering

    What’s the value of a space of beauty to nurture family life? How does beauty affect our souls? What makes a space beautiful? Is there theology to anchor our home lives in?







    These are the kinds of questions we’re touching on in today’s episode with writers, philosophers, and mothers, Carrie Gress and Noelle Mering–two of the authors behind the new design book The Theology of Home: Finding the Eternal in the Everyday. While this book is fit for your coffee table, it’s more than the beautiful photographs that fill it. It addresses the spiritual foundation for loving your family by cultivating home.







    In this episode we discuss homemaking in a culture that doesn’t value such efforts and the hunger for home in our society, made obvious by the obsession with home improvement and design shows (or Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia empire). We talk about how loving our homes isn’t only for interior designers or for the wealthy and how making space for hospitality can make our homes a light to the world. It’s a great conversation so grab a cup of coffee and listen in!

    FoC 122: The Reed of God: Embracing the Dark Secret of Advent

    FoC 122: The Reed of God: Embracing the Dark Secret of Advent

    It’s Advent! Since we’ve already released episodes about Advent music and how we observe Advent in our homes, we decided to talk about the spiritual journey of Advent inspired by one of our favorite books of all time, The Reed of God by 20th century British Catholic and spiritual writer, Caryll Houselander.







    We’re sharing in this episode about the essential role of Mary as the model for Christians and how we can be inspired to faithfulness and holiness through her example in a special way during Advent. We talk about the reality of Advent as a time of “darkness” when the work God is doing to redeem us might be done secretly and quietly in our souls as Christ grew in Mary’s womb–not yet revealed. We also discuss the difficulty in trusting God that He will complete the work He is doing in our lives instead of reaching for spiritual perfectionism that insists we can become holy on our own just by trying harder. Houselander has so many incredible insights in this book and we’re excited to share some of her beautiful thoughts on Advent in this episode!

    The Rosary played a significant role in helping converts Meg and Kyle Tietz find their way home to the Church. But they ran into a recurring problem – rosary beads kept breaking in their hands. Kyle, decided to teach himself to make an indestructible rosary that was so beautiful, it would inspire frequent prayer. Nikolaus Design (named after Kyle’s confirmation saint, St. Nicholas) was born from that mission! They create rosaries that are beautiful enough for special occasions but durable enough for daily prayer and they offer wire-wrapped, heirloom rosaries made from semiprecious gemstones, Swarovski crystals, Czech glass, genuine turquoise, and our specialty – handmade sterling silver Southwestern pearls.















    You will not find rosaries constructed with these unique handmade beads anywhere else! Rosaries by Nikolaus Design are perfect for gifts for weddings, baptisms, confirmation, graduation, or Christmas or as a gift to yourself to inspire a deeper devotion to Our Lady’s Rosary.

    That’s right, Haley and Christy–usually separated by a few thousand miles–were together in the flesh at the FoC Raspberry Cordial Catholic Literary Gathering and we recorded with an audience with dear friend and fellow Anne-phile, Meg Hunter-Kilmer.







    For those of you who couldn’t be there with us in early November, we wanted to let you in on some of the fun! The three of us have a great time answering questions from the audience about L.M. Montgomery’s beautiful books including what makes someone a kindred spirit, whether Diana will have a mid-life crisis, if we’d be friends with Philippa Gordon or Jane Andrews in real life, and so much more!

    FoC 119: The Latin Mass: Answering All the Questions You Were Too Afraid to Ask with Zac Mabry

    When we watched The Little Rascals when it came out in 1994, little did we know that Porky would end up being a Catholic convert–and a Latin Mass goer. That’s right! Zac Mabry, child actor turned CPA, is on the podcast today!







    Zac is a fellow podcaster (he makes The Roman Circus Podcast with Matt Baker) and a contributing editor to The Catholic Herald. He’s also a Texan like Haley and he’s here to answer all your burning questions about the Latin Mass.







    In this episode we clarify some of the confusing terms used to refer to different liturgies, explain why the Latin Mass is so great, and give tips for folks who are interested in attending a Latin Mass but nervous to try it out. We talk about everything from veiling to how traditional Catholics aren’t like the trads you might meet on Twitter. This episode is a little controversial and a lot of fun. So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
