Do You Dress for (Spiritual) Success?

5-25-17-armor_God

It has been said time and time again, to dress for success in the corporate world.  But as Catholic Christians we are called to dress for spiritual success.  What do we mean by that?  To put on the armor of God as St. Paul talks about it in Ephesians. We must be ready spiritually to fight off every attempt satan makes on us.  We must guard ourselves and be guided by the Spirit to overcome all the challenges that takes our focus off of God and onto worldly desires.  So here is the question, are you dressing for spiritual success or worldly success? Share your wisdom by calling, 1-800-585-9396.

How Have You Changed From When You Were a Kid?

 

5_24-17-changed.jpg

As children, we all are developing our character, our habits, our likes and dislikes, etc. Most of us carry a great many of them into adulthood. But we also often “outgrow” some of the ways we were when we were young. Were you shy as a child, only to be outgoing as an adult? Or vice-versa? Were you the “life of the party” at family gatherings when you were young, only to become more reserved as an adult? Share your take on this Wednesday with Jerry and Debbie.

It’s Hard to Say “I’m Sorry”

5_23-17-sorry.jpg

One has to be courageous to extend a person to person heartfelt apology.  So many times we choose the “chicken exit” approach by sending a text, a quick note or email just so that we don’t have to endure the humbling experience of admitting that we were wrong in a specific instance.  Share with us your “take” of sending and/or receiving apologies.  Remember, when we encounter those difficult experiences, it is a huge opportunity for growth especially in virtue.  Are you a courageous apologizer or do you avoid the difficult and take the easy road?  We have all been there, so please share by calling, 1-800-585-9396.

Body Language Speaks Volumes

5_22_17-actions (1).jpg

Body Language is that non verbal communication that can reveal a lot about a person’s nature and disposition.  For instance, when a person has their arms crossed in front of them, this usually is an indication that the person is closed off, unwilling to be open for a discussion, or possibly even in defensive mode.  Another example is the gesture of outstretched hands signifying a person’s openness for assistance with a spirit of humility.  As Catholic Christians we are to be Christ in the world which means our body language can speak volumes to seekers of the Faith.  Let’s talk about this and more on Monday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie.  Call in at 1-800-585-9396.

Chores Around the House

A couple weeks ago Jerry and Debbie asked you for your take on giving your kids an allowance. Some of you tied it into your children completing their chores around the house. Others of you, no doubt, simply expect your kids to help with the upkeep and harmonious functioning of the household by doing their share of the work to make that happen. So many lessons can – and should – be learned by youngsters when they are required to participate in keeping the home in good order. How does that work in your house? Obviously, not every member of the family will have an equal responsibility when it comes to chores. That’s because the older kids will be asked to perform heavier duties. But that doesn’t mean that all of the kids shouldn’t help out. Join Jerry and Debbie for another lively conversation on Friday.

Food On the Run

It’s a growing phenomenon – or problem – that we are taking more of our meals in a hurry. What was once celebrated as “family time” at meals has become mom eating this, dad grabbing that, kids hauling their food to practices and/or games. Jesus taught the value of turning meals into communion and fellowship. Yet, so many of us throw something together in the microwave and eat standing at the kitchen counter. And we have to-go containers labeled for each family member in the fridge. Is this your experience? How can we return to the time when one of the most significant periods of rest, refreshment and family unity was conducted around the dining room table?
