Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on January 28, 2015
4:00 – Tiny Blue Lines: Reclaiming your Life, Preparing for your Baby and Moving Forward with Faith in an Unplanned Pregnancy
When Chaunie Marie Brusie stared down at the pregnancy test her senior year of college and saw two tiny blue lines–a positive test–she knew the road forward would be filled with difficult decisions, but she rose to the challenge. Brusie graduated from college, got married, and became a labor and delivery nurse and vocal advocate for the millions of young women who experience unplanned pregnancies each year. In her debut book, Tiny Blue Lines, Brusie offers coaching to young women, reminding them that their plight is near to the heart of Mary and that there is healing to be found in such Catholic practices as the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Brusie provides lists, resources, humor, anecdotes, and spiritual inspiration to help women gracefully navigate this challenging terrain. Chaunie joins us today.
5:00 – Zealous: Following Jesus with Guidance from St. Paul
On Sunday we celebrated the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. In honor of this feast we talk to Mark Hart, coauthor of Zealous: Following Jesus with Guidance from St. Paul. Mark gives us a contemporary look at the basics of spiritual life through the lens of St. Paul’s epistles. Mark takes us on a deeper dive into Scripture to find answers to our faith’s timeless questions and internalize what God’s truth means for us.
5:40 – My Personal Conversion Story
Okan Kulan, a Turkish tour guide who works with Steve Ray, joins us in studio all the way from Istanbul. Okan has just entered full communion with the Catholic Church. He tells us his conversion story.
