Thriving in the Trenches – Struggling onto Freedom with Virtue

This week I welcome back previous guest, Susan Husband-wife, mom of seven boys, and a woman after God’s own heart. Susan’s conversation does focus on training up children in virtue, but all that we speak of is applicable to all of us as we struggle on to freedom in Christ through the virtues that God graces us with. Take a listen, share with a friend, and let us persevere as we carry our crosses in life and finish out this Lenten season. Come on Easter!

Hear how this south Louisiana woman said, “yes”, gathered other willing co-founders, and allowed God to grow it all into a women’s conference that reached the hearts of 700 women.

Leila Miller, our guest, considers this day and time an age of unreason. Far too many issues of the day are looked at and judged using human feelings in the name of mercy. We need to use our reason and most importantly, we need to teach our children to use theirs. The understanding of the objective truths in today’s tough moral issues will keep us rooted in Christ, our Catholic faith, and freed from the yoke of secular slavery.
