    Summer Vacation! Family Faith & Summer Saints w/ Meg

    Summer Vacation! Family Faith & Summer Saints w/ Meg

    Kids might get a summer vacation, but God doesn't!  Am I right?  But it sure can seem that once school lets out and our routines vanish, our families' faith lives can go on a serious break.  Today on the show, Meg Hunter-Kilmer is here to give us some suggestions of ways to keep that fire of faith alive even in the heat of the summer and she shares with us some "unofficial" patron saints for all of our favorite summer things.

    What we talk about:
    Meg's new book that was just released AND her upcoming second bookWhy seeing ourselves in physical depictions of the saints is so importantHow to keep our faith practices alive in our families over the summerWhy "The Chosen" isn't just another crappy piece of Christian entertainmentSaint Stories with MegMeg's "unofficial" patron saints of summer
    Who is Meg Hunter-Kilmer?
    Meg Hunter-Kilmer is a hobo missionary. After 2 theology degrees from Notre Dame and 5 years as a high school religion teacher, she quit her job in 2012 to live out of her car and preach the Gospel to anyone who would listen. 50 states and 25 countries later, this seems to have been a less ridiculous decision than she initially thought. Meg is also the author of the new book, "Saints Around the World."

I wish I had one to listen to every morning

All the feels

Beth of a Welcome Grace is such a refreshing voice of kindness, wisdom and humor. She is always there with a relevant episode just when I need it most.

Listening is like having hot cocoa with marshmallows!

I have really enjoyed listening to A Welcome Grace podcast. I first was introduced to Beth’s writings on her blog. Beth has a true gift of bringing words to life and sharing stories that feel warm, honest, and frankly like sharing a warm beverage with a friend. I look forward to each episode weekly; to relax, listen, reflect, and enjoy the coziness of this space that Beth has created for us.
