What Dumb Thing Do You Wish You Hadn’t Done?

We have choices to make every day. Some turn out well, while others don’t quite meet with the same success. In fact, using hindsight, some decisions we make, or actions we take, turn out to have been just plain dumb. Are we more likely to do these types of things when we’re younger and less wise? Or, is the potential there for this to befall us at any stage of our lives? Some examples might be taking on a college friend’s challenge to down ten cans of beer in five minutes, blindly trusting that a wall outlet is working properly when your wife told you she saw sparks coming from it when she last tried to use it, driving at 90 miles an hour with your lights off on a windy country road, you get the idea. Perhaps you would never in a million years have even considered doing anything as outrageous as these things. But, if we’re honest, each of us has done something “dumb” at some point along life’s journey. Let’s talk about this, not simply for the sake of the colorful details, but with a view to how we have matured in our thoughts and actions as we’ve gone through life.

What Was the First Prayer You Learned?

Many of us were taught to say certain prayers as children. For others, it may have come a little later in life when you came to faith in God. In either case, it’s hard to forget the very first prayer you learned to pray. Maybe it was the prayer Jesus told His apostles to pray when they asked him to teach them – the Lord’s Prayer. For you, it may have been the traditional, “Now I lay me down to sleep…” prayer. On Friday, let’s head into the weekend with reminiscing about the first prayer(s) we can recall praying.

Have You Had to Decide to End Someone’s Life? Part II

RESOURCE :: Advance Medical Directive for Arizona

It’s a situation we never hope to find ourselves in, and can never be fully prepared to face. A loved one is in an accident or becomes terminally ill, and you are the one God places in the position of having to choose whether or not to end life-support measures. This can fill a person (or a family) with incredibly conflicted thoughts and emotions. You want the best for your loved one. And you don’t want them to experience undue suffering. But, “pull the plug?” You know that your “yes” to that question means that your loved will pass away and come face-to-face with Jesus and their judgment. If you’ve had to make this gut-wrenching decision, call Thursday for part two of this impactful discussion and share your experience.

Have You Benefited From Counseling or Therapy?

For a very long time, and even to a certain extent today, to be in counseling or therapy was viewed by many people as a sign of weakness, or that a person had major problems adjusting to life. This is surely the case in some instances. But seeking out the help of a mental health professional has lost much of that stigma, and more and more people are benefiting and living better lives because of it. If you are, or have been, in some form of counseling or therapy, how has it improved your life? Many people are hesitant to take this step, so what you share could catapult one or more people into a life far greater than they ever imagined possible. Share your take on this topic on Monday’s show.

It’s Not That Important Anymore

We’re told in Scripture that Jesus came so that we might have life in abundance. That means, of course, a robust relationship with Him. It should also mean being passionate about things in the world around us. These can include a favorite sports team, a hobby, working hard so that you can afford a nice vacation, and so on. There may be nothing inherently wrong with countless things we pursue. But, over time, as we grow older and mature in our walk with the Lord, our interests, passions and priorities can change. Where once we may have been fanatical about this or that sports team, we come to realize that whether they win or lose their next game is really not that big a deal. The same can be said of many other things. They can become obstacles to our growing in holiness if they take on idol-like status in our lives. Is there something in your life that used to take up a lot of your time and attention, that you now may still have an interest in, but not at the level you did before? Share your take on this as we broadcast again live from the 19th annual EWTN Catholic Radio Conference!
