As a fellow Catholic mom, I come away from this podcast feeling inspired to incorporate my faith even more in my daily life. I find the topics on this show to be an interesting listen while I’m doing the dishes and laundry or making dinner or driving the kids to school or any of the other mundane tasks that take up much of your day when you’re a mom of littles. Christine offers fresh perspectives and practical advice, and her enthusiasm as a convert to the Catholic faith is apparent. Keep up the great work!
