J1ST 092: Is Halloween Evil?

10/20/2019
More
Hi There! We're getting seasonal today and tackling Halloween... If you're like us, you probably remember the annual struggle to narrow down your costume ideas to a single CHOICE and then the excitement of running door to door to get candy (FOR FREE) from strangers. Halloween was quite different as we went on college and post-graduation life. Halloween seemed like nothing more than an invitation to dress immodestly and drink to excess, so no thank you, Halloween, we'll just move on to All...

J1ST 091: The Litte Flower

10/13/2019
More
Hi Friends! Happy Feast Day of Fatima (if you're checking this out Sunday evening). October 13th, 1917 is "The Day the Sun Danced." It's a great day to pray the rosary! Speaking of roses.... It's October and we'd be remiss if we didn't share about one of our favorite saints, St. Therese of Lisieux, The Little Flower. Before St. Therese died, she declared "I will send down a shower of roses from the heavens, I will spend my heaven by doing good on earth." Since then, many Catholics have...

J1ST 090: Miracles of the Rosary

10/6/2019

Hi Friends! Happy October!!! You probably know that October is considered the month of the Holy Rosary, but do you know why? If you're listening the evening this episode goes live, it's the eve of Our Lady of Victory's feast day, also known as Our Lady of the Rosary! This feast day was established during the pontificate of Pope Pius V after an astounding victory of Christian forces against the Ottoman Turks on October 7th, 1571. The Battle of Lepanto! The Christian forces by all accounts...

Hey Listeners! Welcome back and happy New Week to you! What's your favorite Marian Apparition? Is it Lourdes or Guadalupe or Fatima? (both ours are one of those so don't feel bad for being 'predictable') This week we are exploring some lesser know apparitions. Ones you didn't hear about in Catholic School. Ones Nancy and I found out about through an amazing lecture by Fr. Don Calloway (see link below) and then read more about in his amazing book Champions of the Rosary. In a way, Marian...

J1ST 88: Natural Family Planning

9/22/2019
More
Hi Friends! This week we're diving into Natural Family Planning or NFP. What is NFP, you may be wondering? NFP is any method of observing your monthly fertility signs and using them to plan when to 'renew your vows' with your husband. Fertility Awareness is not just for deciding when to try for a baby though. Many health issues can be traced back to cycle or hormonal abnormalities, so women of all ages and stages can benefit from becoming aware of their fertility signs. Today we have a...

J1ST 087: The Seven Sorrows of Mary and Infertility

9/15/2019
More
Hello Friends! With yesterday being the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, in today's episode, we're taking a closer look at the Seven Sorrows of Mary along with the concept of being open to life, even if it leaves your arms empty (or emptier than you want them to be). We're talking specifically about infertility but as Catholic Women, practicing natural family planning can leave our families looking very different than we've envisioned, so everyone can get something from this episode (we hope...

J1ST 082: The Scapular

8/25/2019
More
Next in our Sacramental Series, we’re learning about Scapulars. We’ll talk specifically about the Brown Scapular today but there are several different color scapulars each with their own particular devotion. The Scapular is a beautiful tradition of our Church started with the Carmelite Order. The Carmelites, unlike many of the orders founded around the same time, have no saintly founder that we know of. Instead, the order was founded by laymen who were former crusaders. Their community...

J1ST 084: Veiling

8/18/2019
More
Today, we’re diving into another sacramental of our Faith: the Chapel Veil. Reminder from last week: Sacramentals do not confer the grace of the Holy Spirit in the way that sacraments do, but by the Church's prayer, they prepare us to receive grace and dispose us to cooperate with it. (CC1670) Wearing a veil at mass will not give you special graces the way a Sacrament does, but some women find it helps open them up to receive the graces of the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Did you grow up...

J1ST 083: The Miraculous Medal

8/11/2019
More
For the next four weeks, we’re diving into Sacramentals. What are they? Why do we have them? How did each particular devotion come to be? To begin, let’s take a look at this line from the Catechism: Sacramentals do not confer the grace of the Holy Spirit in the way that sacraments do, but by the Church's prayer, they prepare us to receive grace and dispose us to cooperate with it. (CC1670) Sacramentals can be an object (such as Miraculous Medal or Holy Water) or an action (like the Sign of...

Hello and welcome back to the second season of The Just One Small Thing Podcast: Everyday Wisdom for Catholic Women! In today’s episode you’ll get to meet my friend and New Co-Host, Katie Wood, while we talk about this season’s motto: Let the Eucharist Lead. To be honest, this might be our motto forever and ever because how can you beat it? Isn’t this what it means to be Catholic? Christ in the Eucharist is at the center of it all, whether in Adoration or the Celebration of the Mass. He is...

Hey there friends! It's a big day around this small corner of the internet. Today I am sharing the LAST installment of the VIRTUES OF THE ROSARY. I can hardly believe it! I started discussing these virtues last summer, and here we are finishing them up as we approach another summer. So, today is all about the virtue attached to the final Glorious Mystery: the Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth. The virtue for this mystery is FRIENDSHIP WITH MARY. Since I feel like I have been...

Welcome back to another installment of the Virtues of the Rosary on the Just One Small Thing Podcast. I have really loved attaching a virtue to each mystery of the Rosary, and I hope these episodes have been helpful and enriched your own praying of the Rosary. And, we are in the 2nd to the last episode in this series! Can you believe it?!? Today's episode is all about the fourth Glorious Mystery, the Assumption of Mary into heaven. The virtue attached to this mystery is Union with Jesus....

Hey there! Welcome back to another episode of the Just One Small Thing Podcast. I am working my way through the final VIRTUES OF THE ROSARY. This episode discusses the virtues attached to the third Glorious Mystery, the Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles at Pentecost. The virtue attached to this mystery is Courage...or Zeal for the Mission...or just being Open to the Spirit. Sorry if I sound a little bit all over the place, but as I prepared for this episode I realized that there...

Hey there! Let's continue on with our investigation of the virtues of the Rosary! Head hereif you would like beautiful coloring pages with the virtues of the Rosary and right hereif you would like to grab a Rosary Booklet of your very own. Today's podcast is all about hope, but not hope in the sense that we use the word every day. In common usage, hope is like optimism. We might say, "I hope I'm not late." Now, it is perfectly fine to be optimistic, but optimism is not a virtue. Hope as a...

J1ST 077: Faith

4/28/2019

Hey there, friends! Today we are getting back to a topic I love: The Rosary. Over a year ago I put a little rosary booklet with the help of Annie from Paper Monastery. The Rosary Booklet is a collection of ways to pray and reflect on the rosary.Over 3,000 copies of that book have been shipped all over the world (holy cow!), but more importantly, just putting that book together has had a big impact on the way I pray this incredible prayer. And through that, of course, changed my entire...

J1ST 076: Rise with me through Prayer

4/21/2019

Hey there, friends! This week the Just One Small Thing Podcast is a challenge for you (and for me!). Since we are in the Easter season I think it is the PERFECT time to take stock of life and our faith life. Have we been moving forward? Do we actually, deeply believe the things we processed during Holy Week and on Easter Sunday? And, perhaps as important as anything, am I committed to prayer? Because, as I have learned over the last year, it all comes down to prayer. In the podcast I take...
