My New Normal…After the Pandemic

Meme-April 22 -Changes-after (1)

Call in to Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie and share with us how you envision yourself after the pandemic…

Will you make grabbing your mask a priority when you leave the house for the day?  Will you make sure you have extra hand sanitizer in your car so that you never run out? Will you keep a set of disposable gloves in your glove compartment just in case you go to the gas station? Will you change clothes upon entering your home after a day out?  Will you wash your hands frequently and be aware to not get too close to others? Will you make it a point to not touch your face or put your hands on public surfaces? Will you still hug others, or has the smile and wave become the new way for you? Will you decide to use FaceTime over actual visits to the sick and those your love?

There is so much that will change either consciously or subconsciously because of this crisis.  Maybe you have always been like this, cautious about catching things or germs and really this won’t be anything new for you.  Call in and let’s help one another navigate our new normal post pandemic. 1-833-288-3986

Ready to Jump Back In???

Meme-April 21 --jump-back (1)

How willing are you to jump back into society once we get the green light? Do you ever see yourself at the grocery or department store again?  How about going to a sporting event or concert?  What about going to church again?  Do you think that the community feel will be lost by all the restrictions and guidelines?  Or maybe you feel that once the coast is clear, everything will simply get back to normal and businesses will come back better than ever.  How about shaking hands, and/or hugging someone?  These are gestures that were once second nature, but now maybe your mindset has changed.  Lots to consider and almost too much to cover in one show.  But please call us and share your thoughts on this. 1-833-288-3986

Is your time at home, turning out to be a vacation or a spiritual retreat?

Meme-April 20 -vacation (1)

This topic was suggested by MaryAnn, one of our loyal listeners to Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie.  MaryAnn wanted to know if your time at home is turning into a spiritual retreat or does it feel like more of a vacation?  Great question and one that we are sure you will happily answer.  So please call us at, 1-833-288-3986.  Your contribution to the discussion helps others learn and grow.  Don’t miss the opportunity to impart your wisdom.

During the stay-at-home orders, is your family praying more?  Are you watching Mass and other religious programs on TV? Are you choosing movies that are spiritually uplifting?  Are you exercising more and eating better?  Are you taking naps throughout the day?  Are you working in the garden or doing a different outdoor activity?  Have you dusted off the board games to play with family?  Are you baking more?  Do you find yourself praying the Rosary throughout the day?  Lots of questions, many angles to cover, we just need your participation.  Should be a great show, and one we can all learn from…

Looking for some good news…

Meme-April 17-good-news

We are constantly bombarded these days with some pretty devastating news.  How many tested positive for COVID-19.  How many are hospitalized.  How many people on ventilators.  But the worst, on a daily basis, is the growing number of those that have died from this virus.  Yet, throughout this entire pandemic, there have been the heroic stories of those on the front lines. The brave nurses, talented doctors, the first responders, the truck drivers, grocery workers, delivery people and our own Catholic priests.  So many folks doing amazing things for their communities, their loved ones, and their parishioners.  Share with us the great stories you have heard recently that really moved you and restored your faith in humanity.  Call us at, 1-833-288-3986.

Spousal Disagreements

Meme-April 4 2020 -make-up

In marriages, it is foolish to think that spouses will agree on everything.  Disagreements will arise and it is how they are handled that makes all the difference in the world.

  • Do your disagreements with your spouse turn into major conflicts?
  • Do you strive to make the outcome of your disagreements a win-win for the    relationship? What can you learn from such disagreements?
  • Do you respect your spouse’s views even if they are vastly different from your own?
  • Do you seek to resolve disagreements in a positive way?
  • Are you quick to admit faults and ask for forgiveness?
  • Are you able to move past the disagreement without keeping score?
  • Do you choose your words wisely, so as to not hurt your spouse?
  • Are you the type that ignores the problems, in the hope that they go away?

Many questions we can think about and discuss on Monday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie.  Call in and share how you handle disagreements in your marriage.               1-833-288-3986


When is Enough, Enough?

Meme-Feb 26 2020-materalism

A preoccupation with acquiring more goods or money.  Is that the definition of materialism for you?  Or maybe you have only thought about materialism when Christmas rolls around and it seems like folks have forgotten the real sense of the season. Let’s face it. We do live in a materialistic world. Just notice how people will wait in lines for countless hours to get the newest and latest phone or gadget.  It is unbelievable what people will do to stay current with society.  So we have all these goods, but at what price?  Haven’t we pushed aside our spiritual needs all for these material desires?  Please call in and share your idea of materialism and we will hopefully show you how it relates to our Lenten journey.  1-833-288-3986
