Owning Your Story feat. Emily Stimpson Chapman

“God’s primary calls come to you through a combination of opportunity, interest, and talent.” Have you ever felt as though you're too young, too old, unqualified, overqualified, or in some other way inadequate? The devil LOVES to make us believe that we have to be something other than we are to successfully start tackling God's callings. Nothing could be farther from the truth. God uses every single part of our story for the glory of His Kingdom. Owning your story means accepting your individuality, rejecting comparison, allowing him to redeem your wounds, recognizing how God is working in the mess, and realizing that every moment is valuable...including the waiting for your vocation. I first encountered Emily Stimpson Chapman on Instagram. Writing is Emily's gift and calling for processing her story and sharing beauty and truth with the world. There were multiple topics I knew she'd provide valuable insight on...so we're covering (almost) all of them! Topics Discussed Seeing your own story in light of salvation history “Vocational orphanhood:” staying strong for those who are single into their 30s and 40s How it took NINE years of vacillating between dating and friendship before Emily and her husband finally tied the knot Processing and sharing the difficult parts of your story How a sacramental worldview saved Emily from an eating disorder Process scars, not wounds Emily’s method of her effective Instagram evangelization mission Resources Emily’s website and NEW Cookbook to fund her next adoption Scott Hahn: A Father Who Keeps His Promises Paul Center Bible Study: A Journey Through Scripture, Genesis to Jesus Jeff Cavins: Bible Timeline The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide to the Single Yearsby Emily Stimpson Chapman Today's episode is sponsored by the Cathoholics podcast.

Secrets for Singles feat. Paul J. Kim

"Don't persevere in something that's wrong just for the sake of looking like you know where you're going." What's the physical aspect of a Catholic marriage reallylike? What does that woman you want to ask out really want? Should you go on a date with that guy you only like as a friend? Paul J. Kim is one of the most sought-after speakers today and I had the privilege of sitting down with him to unpack all those things single people need to hear that few people will say. We also dove into Paul's vocation story which included many u-turns and what some would call "wasting time" as a monk for several years (hint: it wasn't.) Hilarious and relevant, I know you'll love hearing Paul's perspective as much as I did. Topics Discussed Why you shouldn’t be afraid of “wasting time” by discerning religious life Fighting in marriage: things single people should know Red flags: is this a showstopper?

Authenticity and Surrender feat. Sr. Bethany Madonna

“We fear rejection, but living in the mediocrity of being used is painful in a different way because of its emptiness. The Lord wants to free us from that so we can live in authentic joy.” Walking down a busy New York City street in a flowing blue and white habit and veil would force you to really think about your, your motivations, and what you stand for, eh? I got to sit down in person with Sr. Bethany Madonna for coffee at the National Catholic Youth Conferences where we were both blessed to be speakers. For those of us who aren't nuns, Sr. Bethany cuts to the heart of what's important and how to live an authentic life surrendered to God. Surrender has been the hardest, most necessary, and most freeing part of my spiritual growth and I'm THRILLED I get to share this conversation with you. Topics Discussed Finding courage to speak up for what’s right Creating a space for God to fill in your heart The tipping point where Sr. Bethany became excited to be a nun (she didn’t want it for a long time!) God fulfilling the love language of physical touch in religious life Charism of the Sisters of Life We’re all addicted to something Resources Sisters of Life website This episode is sponsored by the Serving the Aged Lovingly Today (SALT) Mission Program hosted by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm.

Discerning New Projects and Avoiding Overcommitment feat. Melissa Grace Tablada

“There is such a great joy of missing out. When we say no to something, we’re saying yes to something greater.” Funny story: I recorded this episode two days before posting my foot-washing post that went viral (over 17.6 million Facebook views so far!) After recording this episode I took a project I wanted to do to prayer and discerned that I'm called to prioritize my marriage, first and foremost. And then 2 days later God used my surrender to reach incredible numbers of people! She's young but wise- my guest today Melissa Grace Tablada juggles her calls of being an NFP instructor, marriage and family therapist, wife, and SoulCore fitness instructor. If you're constantly trying to find the balance between handling a busy life and feeling burned out and overcommitted, you'll love our timely conversation as we roll into the new year. If you're like me, turning down new projects is hard, but we also know that ONLY God can be productive 24/7. Enjoy! Topics Discussed: Just busy or ove...

You Are Enough feat. Mike Tenney

“When you truly know yourself, then you truly don’t care what anyone thinks of you.” This episode was originally supposed to be called “How Should You Spend Your Teen Years?” However, my conversation with Mike Tenney covers issues that extend far beyond our teen years for many of us: insecurity, comparison, self-image problems, fear of commitment, pressure to perform/pick a public image, negotiating attraction and dating, and building your interior castle. Mike is a dynamic speaker and high school teacher, (we went to Catholic U together back in the day!) and he’s the real deal when it comes to connecting deep spiritual issues to everyday life. You’ll be healed, illuminated, and will find gems to help you live more intentionally sprinkled all over this episode- I’m so excited to share it with you! Topics Discussed When you think you’re called to an unspecified “something big,” and how to wrestle with that The mental shift that helped me stop being so hard on myself Becoming a digital disciple What you should and shouldn’t prioritize in your teen years You are enough, and here’s why Should you date in high school?

“I might not know the meaning of this moment, but if I am convinced that there is a God who loves me then I know that this moment has meaning.” The man, the myth, the legend: It's Fr. Mike Schmitz!!! If you’ve ever wanted to know his coffee order, you’ll hear ALL the details right down to his favorite roast here. Also, he shares that he might be Superman. He just might be. And you’ll also hear a fun story from my Broadway National Tour about how the Mayor of Munchkinland got arrested trying to cross the Canadian border. If you’re already a fan of Fr. Mike, you’re going to love our deep dive into all things discernment. At the end of the episode please enjoy my rendition of my favorite Advent song, Gabriel's Message. Simple, haunting, and unspeakably lovely. Topics Discussed The three levels of God’s calls that can INSTANTLY help you prioritize Holier does not always equal harder, but neither should we make decisions to avoid pain Avoiding comparison A philosophical meander: Is what we feel in consolation most true in God’s plan for us? The donuts vs. bacon analogy to help you find your deepest desires The simple question that will reveal real motivations Handling expectations when life falls short of what you thought The real reason you are special, enough, and wanted Anxiety: how do you know when it comes from an anxiety disorder or from natural jitters over a decision?

How to Get an Answer From God feat. Annie Deddens

"It’s easy to be hyper-focused on the intention, and to be less focused on what God may want in our life. So we need to make that the right priority in our prayers." How often have you asked "God, just show me what you want me to do and I'll do it?" Or said, "God, WHY WON'T YOU SHOW ME?" I know I said that to God daily during my discernment of religious life. Today's guest, Annie Deddens, is the founder of Pray More Novenas, a website dedicated to helping Catholics finish their 9 day prayers for specific intentions. We talk about how a novena CAN be used and how it SHOULDN'T be used, Annie's stories of hearing from half a million people around the world who are praying together, and some bonus advice for Catholic entrepreneurs on starting something new. Enjoy! Topics Discussed What is a novena and what is it for? Fitting novenas into the bigger picture of discernment: it's not always about the answer How Annie and John-Paul started Pray More Novenas together When should you start s...

Wanna Make Your Side Hustle Your Main Gig? feat. Mario and Lauren Costabile

Every day, every moment, is a building block of God’s plan. Nothing is ever wasted. It's Called and Caffeinated's first father-daughter interview! Ever have a dream but think,nobody's going to pay me to do that? Ever wonder how to turn the thing you love to do into the thing you get to do all the time? Want to inspire others with your passion for your Faith? You might tell yourself the market is already saturated with creatives, only the very lucky make it, you've got nothing original to offer, blah blah blah. Put aside that judgy voice and get some solid guidance on how to get started here. If God is calling you to make your side hustle your main gig, he'll take care of the success. You just gotta do your side of the work. Mario Costabile founded Array of Hope, a media company, to move hearts with quality videos, music and witness. His daughter Lauren joined the team later as a singer, speaker and director of social media. The company seeks to spread the gospel message in an understandable way using media that people understand. They saw a need for quality Catholic media and are filling it. Today they're detailing how they went from being a family band playing together at home to a full production company with films on FORMED, EWTN, Shalom World TV, and others. Friends, I firmly believe the world needs your gifts and God is calling you to use them in some way. You're not too old, too young, too inexperienced, too anything for God to manifest his incredible dreams through you! Topics Discussed Social media use: how to use it to evangelize Getting all the pieces together for a startup The moment Mario answered the call to begin Array of Hope- he was in his 50s and it took TEN YEARS! Tuning into your joy as a guidepost The reality of how long it takes to grow a business How to know you're heading in the right direction and how to "do it all" The vital importance of collaborating with those who inspire you Resources Array of Hope Marie Forleo Joe Melendrez's episode of Called and Caffeinated

Orthodoxy is Not Enough feat. Dr. Edward Sri

Orthodoxy. Pro-life. Mass on Sunday. Rosary. Doing allllll the Catholic things. Not enough. “The Lord really wants me to make him not just a part of my life, but the center.” In school we learn in a classroom, taking notes and regurgitating information on tests. But that’s not how people learned in Jesus’s day. Apprentices learned bylivingwith their teacher- imitating not just what he did buthow and who he was. The legendary Dr. Edward Sri, author ofInto His Likeness(and so much more) describes what being a disciple of Christreallylooks like. It’s not just staying in bounds… it’s so much more. And that is the foundation for ALL good discernment. BONUS: Mozart's gorgeousAve Verum Corpus. All 4 parts sung by me (singing bass is a fun challenge!) I put a LOT of effort into it for you guys, so I hope you enjoy it! Topics Discussed The little Annunciations Imitating our Rabbi Surrendering- What do we gain?

Build Faith and Discover Your Unique Gifts feat. Sarah Christmyer

“I am going to praise the Lord because of who he is and what he has promised. And when I do it repeatedly, it brings life into me and changes my heart.” Ladies, if you struggle to believe that you have what it takes, if you are jealous of other women, if you’re angry with God because your life isn’t working out the way you wanted, if you struggle to trust God, if you feel caught between following your heart and following your dreams: This episode is for you. Eve, Sarah, Rahab, Leah, Rachel, Miriam, Deborah, Judith, Esther. These women may have lived a long time ago, but they were REAL. They experienced every struggle you can imagine, including impossible circumstances, inadequacy, carrying the consequences of their sinful actions, infertility, disappointment, being unnoticed, comparison, illness, and jealousy. Fortunately, Sarah Christmyer has already done the work mining the gold nuggets for you! Sarah is the author of Becoming Women of the Word as well as over a dozen other books and the Great Adventure Bible Series (anyone else remember using that as a kid???) She wants to empower you with knowledge that you have what it takes to carry out God’s plan, how to live each day in contentment no matter your circumstances, the power of approaching each day prepared to praise (I LOVE this one!), and how to build a faith so strong it can withstand anything. Your soul will thank you for tuning in. Topics Discussed Sarah’s rocky journey from Protestantism to Catholicism and how she heard God’s call to convert (anyone considering joining the Catholic Church will resonate with this!) Do I follow my heart or follow my dreams? God calls us not just in spite of, but because of our inadequacies God wants us to be happy, but what does happy really mean? The underrated and quiet power of accompanying others Physical beauty: how does it fit into God’s plan? How do you use it for good? How do you keep from being jealous?
