A blessing!

This podcast has quickly become a favorite in our family. We love listening together before the kids go to sleep as a way to wind down our day and pray together. It is a true blessing in our lives!

Helps me to hear God amidst all the noise

I have been listening to Enkindle a few months. I was curious. But I am writing now to encourage others - especially after I listened to Fr. Erik’s last Podcast. Wow!

These are brief but deep Podcasts. There is variety and content but value for individuals and families EVERY WEEK! They give me, and perhaps your busy family too, a chance to hear and learn from Scripture- from God! - amidst all the noise.

I know that when our kids were little, Sunday mornings seemed like THE busiest time ever! By the time we got to Mass - I needed a nap. LOL. These would have helped then beforehand or even afterwards... but today they still help me, now in my noisy, busy adult life. Enkindle is so easy to listen to and reflect on for 10mins.

Thanks Fr. Erik. Thanks Enkindle. Thanks God!!

Perfect for Families Young and Old

This podcast will help you and your family get more out of Mass on Sundays. Listen to it on the way to Mass to prepare, or turn it on after Mass as a meaningful reflection. It is a great source of discussion topics for you and your kids. My kids from the ages of 6 to 10 all sit still and listen to it, and I can tell that they are paying attention! The topics and reflections are also relatable for older kids and adults too. Give it a listen!
