Salt and Light - Episode 48: Story Time with Chuck and Annie

December 13, 2018

While baking a batch of Lembas bread for her homeschoolers while they discuss The Hobbit, Annie decided to share her joy of this topic with all of you in this episode. Drawing from a plethora of experience in story telling and reading, Chuck and Annie share some of their experiences regarding the importance of “the story”, how we can read them, how we can read them to children (even when we don’t think they have the attention span… they all do), how we can discuss them, and why they are absolutely essential to our human development, survival, and flourishing.

Salt and Light - Episode 43: All Saints Day All in the Family

November 1, 2018

Happy All Saints Day to our Salt and Light community! We hope that more than a year after starting this little apostolate, we have helped in some small way to point you to Christ and help you grow in love for Him striving for Sainthood!

On this episode, Annie is joined by a special guest (at the request of the Frank Friar) Audrey Horn. It would be quite difficult to find two more different sisters. Annie and Audrey highlight these differences on the show to have some fun but also to demonstrate how in our vast differences we are both pointed in the same direction and mightily striving for Sainthood! How alike or different are you from your siblings? Does it affect your relationship positively or negatively? Do you sanctify each other and help each other on your spiritual journeys?

Salt and Light - Episode 40: What kind of Olive tree are you?

October 11, 2018

The Psalm and the Gospel from the 27th Sunday in Ordinary time were the inspiration for this week's podcast.

In this episode you'll discover which one you might be and which one you might want to be and why.... and what on earth this has to do with the Gospel and the Christian life.

Salt and Light - Episode 36: Dragon Sickness

August 30, 2018

As we find ourselves now entrenched in daily new reports, news, and allegations, we uncover new emotions and intellectual faculties as we evolve from the initial shock of the reports. In this episode of the Salt and Light Podcast, Chuck and Annie discuss a few states in which we can find ourselves and one in particular Annie refers to as "Dragon Sickness." What is it? Are we all susceptible? Were the Bishops and Cardinals? What can be done?

In addition, we are doing our best here at Salt and Light to comb through as much news as possible to only post credible and original source material, because we all must remember that commentary is not helpful. Opinions are like arm pits; we all have them and they all can stink. We MUST pursue the Truth and demand our clergy does the same to wherever and to whomever it may lead. Jesus Christ is the Way, the TRUTH, and the Life. We remain loyal to HIM and Him alone as we cooperate with God's will and Our Blessed Mother in purifying the Bride of Christ, His Church. Please follow us on Facebook for news and also sample letters submitted by other Catholics for you to use as an example of what you can send to Bishops and Cardinals.

Salt and Light - Episode 33: Beauty with guest Steve Pokorny

August 9, 2018

Is beauty subjective or objective? How do we know something is beautiful or can we? What does beauty have to do with God or our relationship with Him? Join us on this edition of the Salt and Light podcast with guest, Steve Pokorny, of Freedom Coaching , which is a one-on-one mentoring system aimed at helping those with an attraction and compulsion to pornography, with the goal of reclaiming a healthy vision of the body and of sexuality, and thus become inoculated to the enticement of pornographic images.

In light of Steve's expertise and considering that so many families with children listen to our show each week, we directed the focus of this episode on a rightly ordered understanding of beauty. We discuss with Steve how we can regain a proper understanding of beauty in order to come to know God more fully, know AND love ourselves and others more completely and then share this gift with others.
