Josh Holdenried “Napa Legal Insitute” - Lisa Hendey & Friends #103

May 19, 2020

On this week's show, we examine the role of faith-based organizations during times of crisis and beyond with Josh Holdenried of the Napa Legal Institute.

About Josh Holdenried

Josh Holdenried serves as Vice President and Executive Director for Napa Legal Institute. He holds a B.A. in Public Policy Leadership from the University of Mississippi and a Certificate in Applied Religion in Public Policy from Pepperdine University’s School of Public Policy. He is currently pursuing an M.A. at Hillsdale College’s School of Government.

About Napa Legal Institute

Napa Legal Institute (NLI) was launched in 2019 to empower evangelization through corporate education and legal resources for faith-based nonprofits aligned with the Catholic faith. The founders of NLI realized that, as the legal environment increases in complexity, spiritual entrepreneurs will need specific education and timely resources so they may exercise their religious liberty without fear of transgressing the law. This requires a better knowledge of taxes, corporate structures, and a tangle of local, state, and federal labor laws and regulations.

Rhonda Hoffman “When I’m Not Me Anymore” - Lisa Hendey & Friends #101

May 5, 2020

On this week's show, we address the importance of having sometimes difficult family conversations and what a diagnosis of dementia means for families with Rhonda Hoffman, author of When I'm Not Me Anymore: A Pre-Dementia Love Letter to My Daughters.

About Rhonda Hoffman

Rhonda Hoffman is a first-time author who lives in Sherwood Park, Alberta ‚Äď right around the corner from her daughters.

About When I'm Not Me Anymore

From Rhonda Hoffman: "A familiar stranger. That is who my mom became as dementia slowly took hold of her. She was someone I knew and loved but not the same person she had been. A profound sadness hit me when I realized that my daughters may one day have to deal with me in this same condition and I wanted them to know that who I become if this happens is not really who I am. The things I will say and do will be coming from someone who has gradually become a stranger to them. Everything about our life together will change when I have nowhere to go and all day to get there, forgetting that they still have commitments, appointments, and things to do. We will experience a sense of time travel as my memories from the past become jumbled up in the happenings of each new day. The change in my language could bring about surprising and sometimes disturbing conversations as the filters from the past wane and they see me in my uncut glory. This is a love letter of instruction to my daughters while I am able to express myself fully with prompts for you to do the same for your children or to chronicle meaningful times in the lives of your parents before the chance is lost forever."

If we can't reconcile apparent contradictions between Scripture and Catholic teaching, how can our own faith survive? And if we can't help our Protestant brothers and sisters overcome their preconceptions about "unbiblical" Catholic doctrines and practices, how will they ever come to embrace the fullness of the Faith? In Meeting the Protestant Challenge, Karlo Broussard gives you the knowledge and tools you need to answer fifty of the most common Bible-based objections to Catholicism.

About Becoming Women of the Word:

In Becoming Women of the Word, Sarah Christmyer embarks on a spiritual pilgrimage through the Old Testament, with each chapter focusing on one particular woman, and in one case, on two sisters. These are ordinary women with ordinary lives. They suffered, they longed for love. They stepped into the gap when men failed them; they worked to bring beauty from the ashes of their lives. Their experiences are still relevant today, despite the miles and years that would distance them. Christmyer introduces each Biblical woman with a related story from her own life, and in doing so provides a concrete connection to their witness.
