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.

Makes me a more intentional parent and spouse

Listening to this show has helped me put so many things into perspective so I can be intentional in my parenting and marriage. It’s easy to slip into patterns thoughtlessly just doing the day-to-day as a family. This podcast has helped me really think about priorities, behaviors, choices, attitudes and efforts that I really can control to consciously shape our family culture (and within that, our marriage and our kids).

Strongly recommend for all people who want to live more intentionally but don’t want to get swept away by whatever parenting book is the craze right now (which contradicts whichever one is the craze next year). This show is rooted in down-to-earth advice from people who try to live it, it’s practical, and it’s centered in our faith.

Thank you to the Hernans for the time, effort, and thoughtfulness they put into this. You really are making a difference.

Practical and entertaining!

I have been a regular listener for years, and I love this show. It provides really great insights of family life, especially from a more “whole-person”, Catholic perspective. This counsel is especially useful for those of us who do not have a good family of origin from which to draw wisdom and who need healthy, joyful models.
