We know the importance of prayer in the family. Many parents gather their children for an evening Rosary, not to mention praying before meals and going to Mass. What about those family members who are still unborn in their mothers’ wombs? Many studies have shown that children growing in the womb can be affected by many things, including their moms and dads talking to them, playing certain soothing music for them, etc. As you are/were expecting the delivery of your children, do you also pray over them in the womb? We have only to turn to the account of St. John the Baptist leaping in his mother’s womb to know that the unborn can take in a lot more than we might imagine. Why not get started praying with them from the moment of conception? We’ll talk about this on Tuesday’s show.
So many of our fellow Christians own businesses. We may even hear of their particular business on our local Catholic radio station. But do we take the time to seek them out for services, goods, etc and support them? That is the question we are asking on Tuesday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie. Maybe you are a business owner and would like to comment on this topic. Do you as an owner feel supported by the Christian community? Let’s have a robust discussion on this topic and see if we can come away learning something new. Call us to get on the show, 1-833-288-3986.
On Monday, we kick off another week of shows with you at the center of them all. Take 2 With Jerry and Debbie “and You” has become our new slogan. You’re always there for us, to provide great wisdom and insights that we all gain from. To start the week, we’ll take a look at the subject of forgiveness, and how, sometimes, we manage to forgive, but never forget what someone has done to harm us. Please tune in, and be sure to call in, with your thoughts on this topic.
It’s already the end of the week, and, on Friday, we’ll take your calls, emails, texts and social media prayer intentions. Whatever you need God to help with right now, let’s storm heaven together and lift up one another’s urgent intentions.

Like so many other things, God has blessed the world with the technology to communicate and gather information immediately. The Internet is the best example of that. Is it possible to spend so much time online that our minds – and fingers – wander, ultimately taking us down this or that rabbit trail? It’s important to use the Internet with intentionality and self-discipline. Otherwise, we can find ourselves in dangerous territory. Let’s talk about this on Thursday’s show.
Join us on Take 2 today as we talk about how to avoid sin. Share with us the ways you stay on the path to holiness. By your spiritual practices and life experiences, we can learn and grow in our own faith life. Let’s begin Lent with a clear intention, and committed action to turn away from sin and sincerely return to the gospel. Call us at, 1-833-288-3986
The season of Lent officially begins tomorrow with Ash Wednesday. It is a day of fasting and abstinence. Lent can and should be a time to refocus, repent, and renew our spiritual life. Please share with us how you are entering into Lent this year. Does your Lent begin with the Sacrament of Reconciliation? Are you giving something up this year? Are you doing something extra for the 40+ days? Are you going to ramp-up your prayer life? Maybe you will be going to Adoration more. Or maybe you will volunteer at a local organization. We know that technically it is Fat Tuesday and feasting is what is on our minds…But getting prepared for Lent and taking it seriously can really transform our spiritual life now and for eternity… 1-833-288-3986
On Monday, Jerry and Debbie kick off a new week of shows by welcoming your calls on anything that’s happening in the news. Of course, there are all the “big” news items. You can certainly call and comment on one of those. But we especially like to hear about things that are going on in your neighborhood, city, or region, that may have otherwise missed the attention of our other listeners. Looking forward to you joining us on Monday!
A great way to finish out National Marriage Week, is to have a show on relationships. Let’s go into Valentine’s weekend talking about our most important relationships in our lives. Ask questions, make comments, offer advice, or say anything about relationships on Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie. Call us early in the show because lines fill up quickly. 1-833-288-3986
On Thursday, we’ll discuss the all-too-prevalent phenomenon of couples trying – but not succeeding – to bear children. This can create unspeakable heartache for husbands and wives, who so desperately desire to raise their own children. Many will eventually turn to adoption, while others may go their entire married lives without having any children at all. Of course, the horrible tragedy is the social and cultural juxtaposition of these loving individuals with those who choose to abort the greatest gift they will ever be given. This show promises to be very impactful, and, quite likely, emotional. Don’t miss it.
