“Money touches every aspect of our lives and colors our interactions with others. If we don't get our relationship with money right, our relationships with others hardly stand a chance.” ~ Jonathan and Amanda Teixeira
Boy do we have a treat for you! One area in which we have always been hesitant to talk about is family finances. But we figured, when you know what you are not good at, you outsource! This is why we are bringing in Jonathan and Amanda Teixeira, founders of WalletWin, a financial-success program and podcast that help everyday Catholics get intentional with money. In 2012, they were $24,500 in debt, but in less than eight months, they had paid off all their loans and closed the doors on debt forever. Since kicking debt to the curb, they’ve focused on saving, investing, and giving, and they’re now teaching others how to do the same. We have found their advice to be very balanced and helpful to couples who desire to learn how to work together and manage their money in a way that brings peace and stability to their home. Listen into this crucial conversation!
Join us for a conversation that was inspired by our listeners' needs! Our daughter Katie (with a guest appearance by baby Catalina!) joins us as a host to ask questions that have been sent to us by various families over the past few months. In this episode we first talk about the time between dinner and bedtime, which we affectionately call the “witching hour”. For some reason, it’s always a difficult time but there are strategies that we have used to make it better. We also discuss the sad reality of adult children who have left the faith and how parents can respond to them. In addition, we give some great places to go to find information about child development so parents can know how to create appropriate expectations and we end with some practical advice on simple dinners. Listen in for some inspiration to help you on your great adventure!
“Ultimately, only bountiful marriages can transform our domestic churches into sanctuaries for this liturgy of love; and it is this liturgy by which we sanctify our daily lives and the world” ~ Living Beyond Sunday
We have been blessed to work with many great ministries serving marriage and family and The Catholic Man Show is one of them! David Niles and Adam Minihan, along with their wives Pamela and Haylee have written a great book for Catholic families called Living Beyond Sunday; Making Your Home a Holy Place and we were thrilled to talk to them about it on this podcast. David and Pamela joined us for this interview in which we talk about the book, but also about how they started out as a family, why they wrote this book, and how it can help other families in their walk with Christ. Just like our work at MFP, this book is full of truth, but also very practical and real. Listen in to be encouraged and inspired!
“Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.” ― Padre Pio
Parents worry about many things - finances, children’s health and education, extended family, grandparents… and then there is the state of the world and the economy! How do Christian parents handle all the things that COULD go wrong? The answer is that this world is not our home and God is in control. God allows difficulties to come our way not for us to worry or be anxious, but for us to turn to Him in prayer and rely on His grace for our lives. This is a throwback podcast - way back to #51! Listen in and join the conversation.
