Social media has inundated our every day and it's really easy to get lost in other's incredible experiences, but there is always a real story of how they got there. What is the nitty-gritty behind the pretty picture or edited caption in the pictures of their real life? What is the real story? Talk to Me!
Humans are encouraged and uplifted by hearing and seeing the real, influential stories. This brings a sense of realism to our very edited and manicured social media lives. There is also an opportunity to discuss how God or perhaps inner strength played a part in these success stories. Let’s bring back the art of storytelling and strive for connection instead of comparison.

    Liv's Weight Loss Journey

    Liv's Weight Loss Journey

    *This episode could be a trigger for anyone dealing with weight, addiction, food addiction, and eating disorders. ForteCatholic and Liv Harrison are not medical professionals. This episode is Liv’s personal story. Always seek the advice of a medical professionals when addressing mental and physical health issues and before making changes to your diet.


    If you have been following me, Liv Harrison, on social media there has definitely been an uptick in my posting about my weight-loss journey. My story is extreme. My highest recorded weight by medical professionals was 458 pounds. In October 2020 I posted that I was finally in the 170’s and no longer considered morbidly obese. However, this journey has taken 15 years to achieve and is not over.


    For the first time I am addressing publicly how I got to that extreme weight and what I did to overcome it. The story is long, because let’s be honest, to get to that ginormous of a number and to lose 286 pounds, it’s gonna take a minute to make it through. And since I am being honest…I get really really real. There are things I have never shared and I share in ways I never have. It gets raw, honest, ugly, and very human.
    This is me.
    This is my huge weight loss journey.
    I ask that you listen with human ears and with a human heart.

    Mary Lenaburg | Be Brave in the Scared

    Mary Lenaburg | Be Brave in the Scared

    Normally I begin with some cute story or roundabout way of introducing a guest, but there is no need to “hide the lead”. My guest is loved for one simple true and sincere reason…she is undeniably loveable. What makes her so well liked, loved, admired, revered, sought after, and adored is her uncanny relatability. You would be hard pressed to find someone more transparent and real. You won’t find them; she is the real-deal. She is as authentic as they come. I’m talking about Mary Lenaburg of course.


    If Mary’s authenticity doesn’t win you over her story certainly will. Most people are aware of the immense tragedy Mary has endured. She has never held back what sadness she has faced in her life. Rarely does Mary get asked beyond just her normal stories that she is always asked to share. That’s because her experience is unique and her storytelling skills are fierce. My goal was to get a few unknown or lesser known stories out of the unofficial-official “Queen of Wisdom”. I am thrilled to say that goal was achieved.


    Mary is everything you think she is and everything you want her to be. You always leave loving her more and you have no idea how that was even possible. To call her a friend is a gift. To know her heart is a honor. To love her is a privilege.

    Coach Anthony Simon | College Basketball Dreams to Best Selling Author

    Coach Anthony Simon | College Basketball Dreams to Best Selling Author

    Having a dream since you were a kid is something many of us had hoped to retain. Backpacks and Trapper Keepers filled with doodles and stickers and notes to friends about who we would grow up to be as adults were common in my generation. My backpack had my Young Astronauts patch attached to it. I remember wading through candy wrappers and pencil erasers at the bottom of my bag to find a note I had written my best friend about my adult sized dreams. She wanted to be a mom and I wanted to float in space. In a lot of ways, we both have accomplished those aspirations.


    What happens when you are a teenager and you actually achieve your number one goal? One day you’re walking through locker lined hallways and the next you have signed to play on a basketball team you have admired. Anthony Simons knows this scenario all to well. He was the kid with the Kobe Bryant dream to play professional basketball. The first step towards that is playing on the college level. So, what happened? Why is Anthony known as Coach Anthony? And how at the age of 21 does he already have 3 published books that have nothing to do basketball backboards? This motivational speaker’s story is one filled with family, dreams, sacrifice, and heartbreak.

    Cana Harrison | Liv's daughter's reflection on the quarantine & election

    Cana Harrison | Liv's daughter's reflection on the quarantine & election

    Not many kids have done what Cana Harrison has successfully done…survived as Liv Harrison’s only daughter! At 10 Cana has more of an adult outlook on life than most the adults I have met. The moment you meet Cana you are impressed with her vocabulary, her level of articulation, and the way she drifts in and out of adult and kid conversation.


    Cana has had anything but a normal life. By the time she was 9 (she is only 10) she had been to all 50 states. She has been on more stages than she can count. And she understands what it means when she hears, “quiet please! Mommy is recording!” Her everyday is anything by ordinary. However, she easily wins the heart of every adult that encounters her within the first five minutes. You can tell she’s a special kid. And not because I have met her. The privilege I have in her life is the fact that I made her, but she is unique because of who she was placed on this earth to become. Her poise and “little-kid-explanations” go hand and hand. With that remember that she is 10 and still under the influence of adults, and not just me and my husband. Cana is a listener. She observes and takes in the adult world she lives in and loves. As a mother I ask that you listen with gentle ears. As a human I ask that you listen. This girl has a lot of wonderful to say.

    Hobo for Christ | Meg Hunter-Kilmer

    Hobo for Christ | Meg Hunter-Kilmer

    Who do you do know who lives out of their car, drives around talking about Jesus, writes books, and knows ALL the things about ALL the Saints? If you said, MEG HUNTER-KILMER then you are correct!


    In the Catholic world Meg is known for living outside of the box and being the answer gal for all things pertaining to the Saints. However, there is a lot more to Meg than just being a human encyclopedia about people who the Catholic Church have declared in Heaven. That is why today’s interview is fantastic because Meg talks about things and goes to places that is out of the box for her. When someone has dedicated their life to exploring certain subjects and then people only want to hear about that it can be challenging to share outside those expectations. Meg does this with grace and ease.
    If you think you know Meg I challenge you to meet her again. You will learn things about her that will surprise you. And if you don’t know who this self-proclaimed “Hobo for Christ” is, then I invite you to get comfy, this is a great story that just gets better.


    P.S. Happy (almost) ALL SAINTS & ALL SOULS Day! Seems fitting to air this episode now…since Meg is the leading Saints expert in all our social media feeds.

    Seattle Seahawk to Lifechanging Educator | Coach Robert Morrison

    Seattle Seahawk to Lifechanging Educator | Coach Robert Morrison

    Being the first at something and somewhere is never easy. However, it can absolutely prepare you for a life of independence like nothing else. Personally, I always thought being the oldest prepared me in ways to face the world. There was no one else to blame and you had to pave the way…every…single…time. But being an only child AND the first at almost EVERYTHING, well that’s just extraordinary!


    Coach Robert Morrison is exactly the independent and strong man you would expect him to be. His life has been anything but simple and ordinary. His story is filled with playing in the NFL to coaching high school students to earning 2 different Master degrees in Education. In his professional career as a teacher and administrator he walked on EACH campus as the FIRST black educator. At EACH of the 7 campuses! He truly changed the education culture in the state of Texas. His reputation is like that of a movie. This incredible man has positively influenced the lives of over 50,000 students and their families. You won’t want to stop listening to his stories…and you are going to need a Kleenex. I cry for the first time while recording. He is a life changer.

Liv Harrison Meets Nancy Meyers!

Very original podcast in which Liv Harrison converses with a wide range of people. If the filmmaker, Nancy Meyers (Somethings Gotta Give), decided to do a podcast, it would be this. Like Meyer’s films, Liv’s podcast is sunny, optimistic and just joyful. Also, Liv opens each episode with a story from her life that relates to the episode. The intro and end music - especially, the end music - are fantastic. Very cool podcast!

Juju from FL ,
