Make Your Home a Holy Place (with Pamela Niles and Haylee Minihan)

Many of us want to make our home a holy place and build a “domestic church” that will encourage our kids to grow in their faith, but we get stuck on the “how” to do that. It might seem like everyone else is living liturgically and praying as a family, but we don’t know where to begin. Today’s guests are here to help with that!

The light of Christ shines in the darkest places.


Take what you have been given in the Mass beyond the doors of the parish and into your home.


My new book, Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday, is available to order!

Pamela Niles and Halylee Minihan are two friends who, together with their husbands, have authored an important and helpful book – Living Beyond Sunday: Making your Home a Holy Place. In the book, they walk you through ways of setting up your home, and your family’s daily routines, in a way that encourages everyone to grow in holiness and prayer. We chat about what to do if you aren’t a “crafty” mom and some simple ways to observe important seasons like Advent and Lent. You are going to love these encouraging and inspiring moms!

Song of the Week: This week’s special song is By and By by Camp. This is a favorite on one of my family’s driving playlists. What do you like to listen to when you drive?

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.
