Standing at the Foot of the Cross (with Laura Phelps)

My guest this week is author and mother Laura Phelps. Laura shares her horrific experience of being a mom of kids present during the school shootings in Newtown, CT and her growth in trusting in God in the years since. She offers practical help for those who struggle to understand suffering and encourages all of us to look to the Blessed Mother as an example of embracing the suffering God allows us to experience.

Snippet from the Show

“Connection is more important than perfection.”


Shownotes

Three lessons from Our Lady:

1) Say ‘Yes’

My guest this week is Laura Phelps, author of Victorious Secret: Everyday Battles and How to Win Them and her newest book, Sweet Cross: A Marian Guide to Suffering. Learn more about Laura and her work at LauraMaryPhelps.com

At the end of today’s show, I share a note I received from an anonymous woman on Instagram about her husband who is addicted to pornography. The resource I share with her and others is Redemptive Living, an organization that helps men and women restore sexual integrity after betrayal.

Have feedback or an idea to share? I would love to hear from you!
