Today’s episode goes out to all the married ladies out there with imperfect marriages…so all of us!  Chief among them…me!

The ideas behind today’s episode come from the months of research and prayer and soul-searching I have been doing to create the Catholic Wife’s Academy (which will be open for enrollment on August 8th).  And here is the major take away I have to share with you today:

To live out our marriages well, we need the beautiful theology AND the practical application.


In other words, we need to know and understand all the wonderful things JPII wrote on love and marriage, but we also need to know and understand some of the wonderful modern research done in the secular realm on marriage, relationships, sex and simple conversation.

We need both.  Yes, we need to be careful and make sure that we are seeing all of this modern though through the LENS of marriage as sacrament, but we need both.

We need to KNOW that we need to give ourselves completely to our husbands…and then we need some practical tips to help us actually do that.

And when we don’t have both we can feel like we are left hanging…

But, thank goodness we are Catholic, and smart Catholics at that, with access to everything we need.  Praise be to God.
