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.

Quote Me S1: E9 Amy O’Connell ; “The world doesn’t need what women have. It needs what women are.”

There are beautiful things happening at Ever Eden Publishing, and we’re so excited to have publisher Amy O’Connell on the show this week.

With Edith Stein, AKA St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, as our guide, we talk about the feminine genius and why women’s voices need to be heard. Here’s the quote:

“The world doesn’t need what women have. It needs what women are.”

Full disclosure: Lindsay has had stories published in the Summer 2019 and Fall 2019 issues of the literary journal (and there may be more to come from this collaboration in 2020; stay tuned).

Quote Me S1: E7 Allan Wright; “Don’t expect faith to clear things up for you. It is trust, not certainty.”

If you don’t yet have a book (or two, or three) by Allan Wright on your shelf, we encourage you to change that, pronto! Allan is a husband, father, author, theologian, speaker, and principal of Koinonia Academy in Plainfield, New Jersey.

In researching his book, 25 Life-Changing Questions from the Gospels: Letting Jesus Lead You through the Stages of Spiritual Growth, Allan came across this quote, from Flannery O’Connor:

“Don’t expect faith to clear things up for you. It is trust, not certainty.”

These words ignite a conversation on discernment and finding peace in your life, as well as practical tips to ensuring you’re going in the direction the Lord wills for you.

Other highly recommended titles by Allan include Daily Companion for Married Couples and Daily Companion for Peace of Heart.

Find more about Allan at www.allanwright.org and follow his Facebook page, Author Allan F. Wright.

Quote Me S1: E6, Mary Harrell; “Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.”

This week’s guest is the delightful Mary Harrell, Catholic radio producer and co-host of the radio show Coffee & Donuts with John & Mary, heard on Mater Dei Radio out of Portland, Oregon and 20+ markets throughout the country.

She brings our first G.K. Chesterton quote to the show (and we hope it won’t be the last!). Mary came across these lines while interviewing Dale Ahlquist for his latest book on G.K. Chesteron, Knight of the Holy Ghost.

Published on October 23, 1909 in the Illustrated London News were these words:

“Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.”

Much of the conversation dealt with Confession, so we’re including links to a couple of examinations of conscience to prepare to receive the sacrament.

Find Mary’s show on iTunes and follow her on Instagram, @coffeedonutspodcast and @domestic_apologist.

S1: E5, Tami Kiser, “You Can’t Outgive God.”

Tami Kiser, author, speaker, mother of many, founder of Heart Ridge Ministries, and producer of Catholic programs for women, joins us with a quote she first heard from Scott and Kimberly Hahn.

“You can’t outgive God.”

Tami shares with us how this phrase has guided her in her marriage, growing her family (she has ten children, five of whom are married, and a number of grandchildren), and in her and her husband’s work serving the Lord.

Tami’s latest project is happening October 7-13, 2019, and it is totally free! The “Let Us Pray” online conference brings talks from authors, experts, laypeople, and religious right to your inbox. Two talks are released each day, and all will be available on the encore day, the final day of the conference. It’s a wonderful opportunity to deepen your faith without leaving home.

Sign up for the conference and be notified about future Heart Ridge projects here. You can also find Heart Ridge on Instagram, @heartridgeministries.
