Quote Me is a weekly podcast that seeks to encourage, inspire, and lift up our listeners to be all they were created to be. Words are powerful. Recognizing and celebrating the impact they have on our lives can comfort or challenge us–or both at once!

Sometimes on her own and other times with a guest, Lindsay Schlegel looks at the source of a quote, how it came into her or her guest’s life, and what impact it’s had. In these conversations, she hopes to honor the truth, beauty, and goodness of well-chosen language and thus to glorify God.

S1 E13 Leslie Sholly “Cast all your cares on God; that anchor holds.”

It’s a great joy to have Leslie Sholly, wife and mother of five, and blogger at Life in Every Limb on the show as we wrap up Season 1. She shares how her unexpected love of The X-Files led to writing fan fiction, which led her to this quote from Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem “Enoch Arden”:

“Cast all your cares on God; that anchor holds.”

If that sounds like Scripture, that’s because it’s very similar to 1st Peter 5:7. Listen in to hear how

God set these words on Leslie’s heart as a child and where they led her in her journey with Christ—all the way to Coffee with Jesus at Radio Free Babylon!

S1 E12 Elayne Miller “The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self.”

You’d think we planned this episode to coincide with the release of the new film on Mr. Rogers, but we really didn’t (the proof is near the end, when we talk Halloween and memento mori)! Rather, this conversation with Elayne Miller, owner and designer at Annunciation Designs, is a further testament to the legacy of Mr. Fred Rogers, who gave us these words:

“The greatest gift you ever give is your honest self.”

What kind of legacy will you leave? At the end of your life, will you be able to confidently say you lived authentically and as you were created to be? By the end of this episode, you’ll be renewed in your desire to do just that.

Here’s the book the quote comes from: The World According to Mr. Rogers: Important Things to Remember by Fred Rogers. And here’s one of the biographies Elayne recommends: The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers by Maxwell King.

S1 E11 Ginny Kochis “The world offers you comfort. But you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness.”

Ginny Kochis is a Northern Virginia Catholic wife and homeschooling mom to three twice-exceptional children. She believes (and is living proof!) God gives curious, creative, intense children the exact mother they need to thrive. Ginny provides practical support and prayerful encouragement to Catholic moms raising differently-wired kids on her website, Not So Formulaic.

Ginny brings us this quote from Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI:

“The world offers you comfort. But you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness.”

Ginny speaks with honesty and humility of her experience as a mother, and how her vocation has drawn her closer to both Jesus and His Blessed Mother.

Bonus relevant quote from Mother Angelica, “You’d better get off your lead bottoms and go out there and change this pagan world.”

Follow Ginny at facebook.com/notsoformulaic and instagram.com/ginnykochis. And grab a copy of her book, Made for Greatness: A Growth Mindset Journal for Courageous Catholic Youth.
