Parenting is not a clean-cut, simple process for those who like to follow the rules. Family life is messy and unpredictable, but it is the greatest adventure you will ever have. We are Mike and Alicia Hernon, parents of 10 children ranging from 6 to 23 and we would like to invite you into some of the conversations we have had with each other about marriage, parenting, and Catholic family life. Our hope is that our conversation sparks a dialogue between you and your spouse that leads to greater unity and intentional Christian parenting in your home. Listen in to our podcast and start the conversation as we seek to lead our families to heaven.

The best podcast out there for Catholic families!

Mike and Alicia’s podcasts have become my first go-to for ideas, inspiration, and encouragement as my husband and I strive to raise our 5 children (ages 1 thru 9) to be holy and happy devout Catholics. I have recommended Messy Parenting to countless friends and taken many of their ideas and adapted them to our family life. They do a fantastic job and surely their words are inspired by the Holy Spirit!

Seriously helpful

I started listening to this podcast at the suggestion of a friend. As my husband and I work to grow our family I wanted to prepare. Though I am not catholic learning to grow my family in God’s grace has been so beneficial. This podcast is even great for those who aren’t religious, amazing tips for growing your family and your marriage

This Podcast Helps Me Catch My Breath!

I am a stay at home mom with two little girls 3 and 18 months. I have 2 littles in heaven and we are expecting another baby. My husband and I met 5 years ago on Catholic Match and hit the ground running as we got married and were expecting the next month. This podcast has helped us to relax amongst all of the varying advice and instead just become a unified force with good priorities. Thanks for all you do!!
