Updated Page – Podcast

Look at the top of the page and you’ll see a new page called Podcast.  Soon it will be prettier so don’t get your undies in a bunch.  It was important to me to list the growing sites where the podcast can be found.  It would help us a great deal if you would take a moment to leave a review on Stitcher and iTunes.  Your reviews help us to be found.  If you have a podcast and you’d like for us to review it, we’re happy to swap.  I’m always looking for new podcasts to download.

Focus Drill Idea for 12/24/14

Catholic guys should spend 30 minutes in focused thought to start their day. Non Catholics should too. Here are some suggestions.

Meditate on Sacred Scripture:
◾Proverbs 24
◾Psalm 24

Situational Response. Eliminate any persons from the scenario who do not apply to your family.
◾You are at an office party
◾Your spouse and children are at the movies
◾A co-worker says he/she has a room at the host hotel and invites you up for drinks

◾What is your response?
◾Now what do you do?

Hey.  I didn’t say every scenario would be about survival situations.  You need a game plan and general course of action for situations like this too because men and women are put in near occasions of sexual sin often.  When a temptation arises, we are always better off having a game plan.

By the way, the best rule of thumb in situations like this is to politely excuse yourself.  “No.  I really should be heading back.  It’s my night to read to the kids.”  It’s not perfect, but I think it works better than running out of the room screaming.  However, if that works for you, be my guest.

Share any good ideas from your drill time in the comment boxes.

It’s Cold Outside! Buy All the Bread & Milk!

bread and mild gone

In the South, temperatures rarely go below freezing, but when they do it is as though a SNOWPOCALYPSE befallen the south. Fearing they may be trapped by the forecasted 1/2″ of ice, citizens rush to the store and buy every last bread, milk, and bacon (yup) in the store. Read the rest of this entry
