Take2 - 01/12/2018 - Surrendering Control of Our Lives
To deepen our relationship with God, one needs to surrender. Giving up control is always difficult. Maybe that is why we hold on to other things in life, just to have a sense of control. Let’s talk about it. Call in share you take for today’s show at 1-800-585-9396!
Take2 - 01/11/2018 - Peace In Your Home
The word “peace” is used over 400 times in the Bible. So what does that tell us? Could it be that we must be instruments of peace in our homes and communities, just as we hear in the St. Francis Prayer? The home should be a safe haven for all who dwell in it. The family is the domestic church, which means we must begin in the home. Would you say that you work hard to keep peace in your home? How do you think your children would describe their experience growing up in the home? We live in a world, where it is very hard to truly find and maintain peace. This conversation on Thursday’s show will be about how we can bring back peace, joy and laughter into our dwelling places. Call in and share some practical advice on how you keep a peaceful household. 1-800-585-9396

Spiritual Support For Our Kids in College
At this time of year, the holidays have just ended and parents and students are scrambling to accomplish last minute “to do”s before college-aged young adults head back to school for the second semester. Most of the college-bound can’t wait to get back to their friends, their own schedule, and, well, yes… their classes. Many of their mothers feel torn. Having college-aged young adults at home for the long Christmas break can be taxing and moms are often ready to say adieu. On the other hand, many mothers have cherished the family time the holidays have provided and want to “freeze time” and relish those moments. So, on these cold, dark early January days, as bags are packed and eager college-aged young adults make their preparations to leave, their mothers do what they do best–PRAY. We pray for safe travel, for a good academic semester, for our child’s health and safety, for a calming of our own heart and mind and, perhaps most of all, that they will stay true to their Catholic faith on campus. Maribeth Harper joins Jerry and Debbie on Wednesday to take a look at this important subject. Be sure to tune in and call with your takes.
Take2 - 01/09/2018 - Stop Telling Me What to Believe!
Everyone either knows a Catholic, was a practicing Catholic or wants to convert a Catholic. Isn’t is so incredibly frustrating when folks like that tell you what you believe rather than asking you? For some reason, Catholics have become fair game to these types of people. It seems as though some want to validate their erroneous ideas about Catholicism by cornering a Catholic and basically leaving them unable to defend their faith. If we want others to ask us what we believe, we really must know and understand the faith. This is a big responsibility but that is why ongoing catechesis is a must for all of us in order to evangelize this world we live in. Let’s talk about this scenario and more on Tuesday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie. Here’s the number to call in and be on the show. 1-800-585-9396.
