Some Good Listenin': The Can't Stop Jogging to It Edition

My friend and sister-in-law, Jenay, recently sent Michael and me a link to The Missionary Family, a website and podcast co-hosted by Genie Summers and her son, John Paul Summers. I haven't listened to many podcasts before, but for some reason Jenay's email really piqued my interested, and I downloaded several episodes (for free) from iTunes.

And loved them. :)

I think this podcast is helping me get into better shape spiritually AND physically. I have been trying to go jogging a couple of times a week with the kids, and I've started listening to a couple of episodes on my runs now. When I'm listening to a Missionary Family podcast, I get so engrossed in what they're saying that I forget how long I've been running and how tired I am. The past few times I've gone running, I ended up running a good bit longer than I planned to. :) 

So much of what they talk about just meets me right where I am at in marriage, parenting and in my spiritual journey. John Paul is my age and has two young children as well, and a lot of what he shares--the struggles and the advice--resonates with me, challenges me, and definitely affirms me in what I'm trying so hard to do for God, for Michael and for my family. I wish the podcast and their ministry with it all the best!

  1. Thanks for the tip! I've been looking for some MMM-that's-good-Catholicism material for time on the go or around the house.


Please be sweet. :)
