Description: Phil and Stacey Huneck are high school sweethearts that have always dreamed of raising children of their own. But that hasn’t been part of God’s plan yet. Like many others, they have faced struggles with infertility, which can be especially trying when other families are celebrating Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day. They share what they have learned about trusting God and more.

Description: One night in 1944, a cloistered Dominican nun named Mother Mary of Jesus had a vision of a violent race riot. Then she saw St Martin de Porres approach the crowd, whose weapons were turned into Rosaries. He then pointed to a hilltop monastery where nuns of all races prayed together. The vision led her to found the first interracial monastery in the US. Fr Patrick Briscoe joins us with the story.
