I Could Kick Myself (But I Won’t)


It happens all the time in life. We allow moments and opportunities to pass us by, only to wish we had acted when the time was right. These could be little things, or they could be very significant things. The old saying is, “I could kick myself.” And, yes, maybe something special passed us by. But it might also have been God’s will that it didn’t happen. Instead of saying, “I could kick myself,” how do we learn and grow through such experiences? Be more attentive to what’s going on in our lives right now? Not miss the opportunity to “strike while the iron is hot?” Share your take on how your life has been shaped – for better or for worse – by seemingly missed opportunities. Here is the show number to call and get on the air, 1-833-288-3986.

They Don’t Listen Anymore


When the children are little, it seems quite natural as parents to take control, make decisions and direct the children when necessary.  But when those same children become adults and have definite ideas of their own, then the situation changes dramatically for the parents.  Is it healthy to just try and be a friend to your adult children or should you always maintain those boundaries and be the parent first?  Adult children don’t seem to always listen to their parents anymore.  It is an interesting dynamic that unfolds in the world of parenting.  Let’s talk about this on Monday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie.  Jerry is on a short vacation this week, so please call in and keep Debbie company on the show.  1-833-288-3986.

Red, White and Blue


This day commemorates the adoption of the United States flag on June 14, 1777.  We, as Americans are supposed to show respect and proudly display the flag this day.  The flag represents unity and independence.  Only these days the flag seems to make waves and there isn’t much unity surrounding it.  In fact, the flag stirs up all sorts of emotions.  That is why many folks are apprehensive about displaying the flag. How do you feel about this?  Will you honor flag day and display the colors red, white and blue?  Or will you let this day pass quietly as to not cause any problems with your friends and neighbors.  Let’s talk about this freely and share our hearts on this topic.  1-833-288-3986.

Why Can’t We Just Be Kind?


Just turn on the TV and it becomes crystal clear just what is missing, kindness.  It seems that we have just stopped being kind to one another.  Why is that?  Why can’t we extend a little kindness to others. From politicians to next door neighbors and even in our families, kindness seems to be lacking.  When we stop being kind to one another then the next step in sin is to destroy each other.  Satan wants us to be unkind this way we can be even more destructive in the long run.  As Catholic Christians, we are called to model kindness.  Do we? Let’s talk about it on Monday.

No, Thank You



We have all been trained to put others first, to nurture, to help, to serve.  These are good things but they can also lead to negative feelings if the situation gets out of balance.  Saying “no” can be necessary and beneficial at times, even for our spiritual life.  But many of us aim to please, we don’t want to disappoint.  So we say “yes” way too many times, only to be feeling overwhelmed, angry, guilty, frustrated and resentful.  Then, when it all seems like too much, we may abandon our commitments and accept the title of “flaking out.” A vicious cycle that can be broken by establishing practical habits to keep everything in check.  If this topic resonates with you, then please call in and share your experience and/or advice. 1-833-288-3986.
