This is a show for missionary disciples who worship Christ in the Eucharist and serve him in their neighbor, for whom the words of the creed reverberate through their daily activity. This is a show for those, like you and me, who make the conscious choice to follow Christ, Outside the Walls.
Breaking Toxic Cycles, Raising a Joyful Family - Erin McCole Cupp
Not every family is the perfect model of Catholic family life. Some of us approach parenting still wounded by childhood experiences that were less than ideal. When we start our own families, at best we feel a bit unprepared, and at worst we feel paralyzed with fear that we will repeat our parents dysfunctional, abusive behaviors.
In All Things New, Erin McCole Cupp draws on her own and others experiences to discuss how to develop a joyful family life when our own experience of being parented was damaging. Erin wrote this book for moms and dads who want to parent better than they themselves were parented.
Drawing on the Holy Family as the model of family life, and distilling practical lessons from the Two Greatest Commandments and the Beatitudes, All Things New shows readers that, while change isn't easy, God has given us all the ingredients we need to create a holy, joyful family.Erin and I discuss recognizing and overcoming toxic cycles, setting boundaries, and moving toward sanctity.

Fr. Daniel G. Dozier, Pastor of St. George Byzantine Catholic Church - Olympia, and Adjunct Professor of Sacred Scripture at Byzantine Catholic Seminary of Saints Cyril and Methodius, joins us to talk about the similarities and differences between the Church of the East and of the West.

Met TL recently in person. I really enjoy his genuine, earnest, thoughtful approach to the Catholic faith.
