Preparing for the Future
Danielle Bean and Lisa Hendey discuss making plans for the future, as inspired by Lisa'a recent experience in losing her mother and visiting with her father.
This may not be a topic we love to talk about, but making sure our families are prepared to make decisions for us as we age and to make choices about our burial arrangements and other personal affairs after we die, is an act of great love.

Love these mom friends!
I love listening to these podcasts, especially during Covid when we see our own mom friends so infrequently. They discuss life’s challenges with cheer and a sense of grace. Thanks for raising my spirits and putting a smile on my face!
Love this podcast!
I want to thank Danielle and her co-hosts for having such a great podcast. I love to listen to this podcast as often as I can. If you would please cover issues such as how to think about when “bad things” happen to people you love (outside of their control). Would love to hear your faith-based perspective!
I love, love, love this podcast. Danielle and Lisa cover topics that are relevant to our lives as moms in every stage of the journey.
Thank you ladies for sharing your lives with us so we can all grow as catholic Christian women/moms in today’s culture.
I was so excited when I realized I could go back & listen to your past podcasts from the beginning. I go on walks (for exercise) & listen to the podcast.
Blessings to you both. Thank you for your yes to our Lord.🙏🥰
