Do you worry about your kids’ use of smartphones? Today we are diving into one of the most important parenting challenges of our times — how to keep our kids safe online. Worrying about access to pornography and evil content on social media leaves many parents feeling helpless and hopeless in the face of a powerful force. Today’s guest, Sean Clifford, is here to offer us a message of hope. Sean is a husband, father of 4, and CEO of Canopy, a powerful new technology that helps parents in the battle for their kids’ souls online. Seam shares about how Canopy works and the reasons why he founded this revolutionary company.

Megan Madden

Megan Madden is a homeschooling mother with a passion for writing and speaking on authentic femininity and virtuous womanhood. In 2017, she began graduate studies in marriage and family at the International Theological Institute in Austria. After moving to Kraków, Poland to work with university students, Megan more personally continued her research on the complementarity of man and woman, particularly on the question of what it means to be a woman. She delved into the study of renowned Catholic writers on women such as St. Edith Stein, Gertrude von le Fort, Alice von Hildebrand, St. John Paul II, and St. Teresa of Avila.

The results were the development of Megan’s online ministry A Mother’s Lace, as well as speaking opportunities and her book with Ascension: Mary, Teach Me to Be Your Daughter.

Megan lives outside of Oxford, England with her husband, who is a lecturer in theology, and their five children.
