S2 E1 Sara Estabrooks: “Be sure that wheresoever our lot is cast we may and must aim at the perfect life.”

January 7, 2020

We’re delighted to launch Season Two of Quote Me with Sara Estabrooks, author of the forthcoming Becoming Holy, One Virtue at a Time; blogger at To Jesus, Sincerely; and co-host of the new podcast, Home, But Not Alone.

Sara’s quote is from a book close to Lindsay’s heart as well, namely, Philothea or An Introduction to the Devout Life by St. Francis de Sales. The book is full of quoteable phrases, and the one we’re discussing here is this:

"Be sure that wheresoever our lot is cast we may and must aim at the perfect life."

This conversation is a great start to the new year and is sure to inspire you, whether you have a New Year’s resolution or not.

Find Sara online at ToJesusSincerely.com, and connect with her on Facebook and Instagram. Be sure to check out her new podcast, too! (Her co-host, Tim Luccchesi, will be a guest on Quote Me later this month.)

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

December 4, 2019

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.”

November 26, 2019

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.

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

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

October 22, 2019

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

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.”

October 15, 2019

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.

“You can’t outgive God.”

Quote Me S1: E4, Elizabeth, “He Was So Lucky You Are His Parents, Because I Know How Much You Loved Him” 

Quote Me S1: E4, Elizabeth, “He Was So Lucky You Are His Parents, Because I Know How Much You Loved Him” 

October 1, 2019

S1: E4, Elizabeth, "He Was So Lucky You Are His Parents, Because I Know How Much You Loved Him” 

What do you say when someone you love loses a child to miscarriage? 

Lindsay lost her second child, Ethan, to miscarriage in 2012. In remembrance of Ethan during this Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, she shares her experience of a friend reaching out with words that brought comfort. Honoring the dignity of the life of the child and acknowledging the reality of the parents’ loss shows a respect for life that is often missing in people’s attempts to console, but these can make all the difference for a grieving parent (or grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling, etc.) 

From Elizabeth, “He was so lucky you were his parents, because I know how much you loved him.” 

In this episode, Lindsay mentions her old blog, Young Married Mom, where she processed her loss and curated a list of resources. She also talks about this article on Verily, but didn’t mention this recent one at CatholicMom.com

The books Lindsay recommends are her own, Don’t Forget to Say Thank You: And Other Parenting Lessons That Brought Me Closer to God; After Miscarriage: A Catholic Woman’s Companion to Healing and Hope by Karen Edmisten; and Blessed Is The Fruit of Thy Womb: Rosary Reflections on Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Infant Loss by Heidi Indahl.

Quote Me S1: E3, John Schlegel, “Where There Is No Love, Put Love And You Will Find Love”

Quote Me S1: E3, John Schlegel, “Where There Is No Love, Put Love And You Will Find Love”

September 23, 2019

Lindsay’s husband, John, joins the show as the couple celebrates their tenth wedding anniversary. Lindsay and John have been serving in a marriage prep ministry within their diocese, and today John discusses a quote he brings to the table each time. 

From St. John of the Cross, “Where there is no love, put love, and you will find love.” 

Lindsay and John talk about these words within the context of marriage, as well as in the broader context of Christian living. How do you live charity without being a doormat? What is true charity to the other and how does it testify to trust in God’s love and mercy? 

Happy tenth anniversary, Lindsay and John!

Quote Me S1: E2, Elena Bird, “Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce”

Quote Me S1: E2, Elena Bird, “Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce”

September 23, 2019

Elena Bird, opera singer and director of sacred music at St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church in Stirling, New Jersey, is our first guest! 

Elena explains how a line from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has influenced her as a singer. In the play, Helena says of Hermia, “And though she be but little, she is fierce.” In Elena’s life, it was her voice teacher saying the same of her in a time when she thought she had nothing left. 

The discussion leads to a powerful conversation on the intersection of creative work, motherhood, and serving the church. What is true humility? How does it allow us to live our vocations to the glory of God?

Quote Me S1: E1, Introduction and Lao Tzu, “Watch Your Thoughts…”

Quote Me S1: E1, Introduction and Lao Tzu, “Watch Your Thoughts…”

September 23, 2019

Author Lindsay Schlegel launches her podcast, Quote Me, with words that have made a significant impact on her family as they strive to live out the Catholic faith.

“Watch your thoughts, they become your words; 

watch your words, they become your actions; 

watch your actions, they become your habits; 

watch your habits, they become your character; 

watch your character, it becomes your destiny.”

― Lao Tzu 

Lindsay approaches the quote through the lens of her lifelong faith. She discusses how her husband has used it in the marriage prep ministry they serve and how her young sons have memorized it, simply from having it displayed in their home.

You can find Lindsay’s book, Don’t Forget to Say Thank You: And Other Parenting Lessons That Brought Me Closer to God, wherever books are sold (Amazon affiliate link used here).
