Join us as we explore the Feminine Genius! Each episode features a different Catholic woman sharing her "just one small thing"--the bit of wisdom she has discovered and how it has changed her life. It is our quest to rally together as Catholic women and together discover a path to holiness that is 100% Catholic and 100% feminine. Listen in and we'll laugh, cry and grow together.

Welcome back to the Domestic Church Project Podcast! This week we are chatting about practical and meaningful things that you can do in your Domestic Church to more fully enter into the Triduum. And in case that term is new to you, the Triduum is the time when we mark the Lord’s Passion, Death and Resurrection. The Triduum begins on the evening of …

Welcome back to the Domestic Church Project Podcast. Today we are excited to welcome Jonathan Strate to the podcast. Jonathan is Ascension's New CEO and, as you will hear in this interview, he is passionate about Parish Life. We found this conversation with Jonathan super refreshing. Across the Catholic World we have heard 2 pretty major extremes: …
 
Welcome back to the DCP Podcast! Life has been NUTS for us lately, and we are working hard to get back into the swing of things right now. What is craziest of all is that we have yet to talk about Lent on the podcast (WHAT!), and so, it is time to do just that. But first, let’s acknowledge something. We are a little over 2 weeks into Lent, but if y…
 
Welcome back to the Domestic Church Project Podcast. We are thrilled to be hosting the Sequieiras this week! Lourdes and Glen are the parents of two young boys, and they are also graduates of the Domestic Church Project Bootcamp.

Welcome back to the Domestic Church Project Podcast! We are excited to share today about the 3rd week of the Domestic Church Project. During this week we ask families to get to work building their Domestic Churches by putting in place the key pillars that will support their little church. These are Obedience, Unity, Prayer, Seeking Holiness and Tru…
 
Welcome back to the Domestic Church Project Podcast. This week we were delighted to have Matt Pinto, the founder of former president of Ascension Press, on the podcast. Although with his work at Ascension, Matt is also the father of six kids. Having Matt Pinto on the podcast felt like the perfect time to tackle an important topic: Scripture. More s…

On top of this, we are als…
 
Today we are sharing one of our favorite people with you. Deb is a single mother to one sweet little girl and she was part of our Beta test of the DCP Bootcamp this fall. What was unique about Deb and Emma’s experience of the DCP Bootcamp is that Deb shares custody with her ex-husband, so she had to get creative about when and how she and Emma woul…
 
The process of creating the Domestic Church Project Bootcamp has forced us to really analyze our own experience. We thought really hard about the major thing we felt just before diving into this work. And that major feeling was fear. Here are just a few of the fears we experienced: The fear that if I try I might fail. The fear that if I invest in m…
 
Especially this last year, there has been LOTS of talk about the Domestic Church within Catholic Circles. We know we need to be the primary educator of our children’s faith, we know that we need to be leading homes that are centers for holiness, but, you are anything like us, there are a number of things holding us back. Over the years Nancy has be…
 
Welcome back to the Domestic Church Project Podcast. Today we are excited to share another super awesome Catholic Family with you: The Vitals.

A few quick notes …

Welcome to the Domestic Church Project Podcast, a podcast for Catholic Parents. We are Bill and Nancy from Catholic Sprouts, and we aren't starting this podcast because we have it all figured out. Not at all. We are very much in the trenches of parenthood, with five young children. We worry too much, and yell too much...and rely on God too little. …

Join us in this hard but importan…

The Church tells us that as Catholic Parents we are the “primary educator of our children’s faith.” But…what if we don’t feel qualified to teach the Faith? What if our own formation was poor (or poorly received)? What then? And what if we are busy…can’t we just out source teaching the Faith to our parish or school. Well, here’s the hard truth. No m…
 
We are all busy. Too busy, in fact. And teaching the Faith in our homes is just one more thing. Plus, when will I have time to prep the lessons, gather the craft supplies and scroll for ideas on Pinterest?!? okay, stop and take a breath. We told you last week that you need to be the primary educator of your child’s faith…and this week we are going …

Happy New Year, Friends! Today we're tackling a fascinating topic, and one that could possibly help you achieve some New Year's Goals: Praying for Your Temperament. This episode started as a conversation pre-recording a few months ago... sharing how novenas appeal to some people but for others they are impossible to stick with. "I wonder if that's …
 
Hey Friends! Happy Fourth Week of Advent! Today we are wrapping up our book study on Interior Freedom, and sticking with the theme of 'we can only control what is within ourselves,' Nancy is without a voice this week so it's just me, Katie. This episode focuses on the last third of the book (that first section was so huge!!). And for me, the two wo…
 
Following the theme of 'we can't control things outside ourselves,' we're needing to take a week off from the Advent Book Study of Interior Freedom and instead, we're sharing something else... The 12 Days of Christmas! Hoping that sharing this week gives you time to prepare a few 'liturgical living' activities but also gets you excited for the days…
 
Welcome back from our Thanksgiving break and welcome into Advent! We hope you had a beautiful "Turkey Day" and that the first week of Advent has been somewhat peaceful and prayerful. During Advent, we will be doing a three part series on the tiny but powerful book, Interior Freedom, by Fr. Jacques Philippe. If you don't have it yet, you can grab it…
 
Hey Friends! Before we dive into this week's topic, two quick announcements! One: We will NOT be releasing a new episode next weekend. We're taking a week off for Thanksgiving. BUT (two), we will be back the First Sunday of ADVENT with the first episode of our book study series! The book we're reading is Interior Freedom by Fr. Jacques Philippe. Yo…
 
** Before we jump into this week’s episode, we want to let you know that we’ll be doing a book study this upcoming Advent!!! The book is Interior Freedom by Fr. Jacques Philippe. Have you read anything by Fr. Philippe yet? He is AMAZING. Such a gentle, yet wise voice… our hope is this study will help us all stay centered this Advent on what (or WHO…
 
Welcome back! Today, we start a two part series on relics... What are they? Are there different kinds? Why do Catholics hang on to pieces of dead people? It might surprise you to find out that the practice of keeping relics is not something that started with the early martyrs, or even with Christ. No! The first example of relics we found in scriptu…
 
Welcome back to another week of the Just One Small Thing Podcast!! Continuing on our 'Fall Triduum' theme, we're discussing All Soul's Day today. Although the last day of this great Triduum of our Faith, it seems to be the 'middle child' in some ways... It's not an eve. It's not a Holy Day of Obligation. It's also kind of sad. We all have people we…
 
Hi There! We're getting seasonal today and tackling Halloween... If you're like us, you probably remember the annual struggle to narrow down your costume ideas to a single CHOICE and then the excitement of running door to door to get candy (FOR FREE) from strangers. Halloween was quite different as we went on college and post-graduation life. Hallo…
 
Hi Friends! Happy Feast Day of Fatima (if you're checking this out Sunday evening). October 13th, 1917 is "The Day the Sun Danced." It's a great day to pray the rosary! Speaking of roses.... It's October and we'd be remiss if we didn't share about one of our favorite saints, St. Therese of Lisieux, The Little Flower. Before St. Therese died, she de…
 
Hi Friends! Happy October!!! You probably know that October is considered the month of the Holy Rosary, but do you know why? If you're listening the evening this episode goes live, it's the eve of Our Lady of Victory's feast day, also known as Our Lady of the Rosary! This feast day was established during the pontificate of Pope Pius V after an asto…
 
Hey Listeners! Welcome back and happy New Week to you! What's your favorite Marian Apparition? Is it Lourdes or Guadalupe or Fatima? (both ours are one of those so don't feel bad for being 'predictable') This week we are exploring some lesser know apparitions. Ones you didn't hear about in Catholic School. Ones Nancy and I found out about through a…
 
Hi Friends! This week we're diving into Natural Family Planning or NFP. What is NFP, you may be wondering? NFP is any method of observing your monthly fertility signs and using them to plan when to 'renew your vows' with your husband. Fertility Awareness is not just for deciding when to try for a baby though. Many health issues can be traced back t…
 
Hello Friends! With yesterday being the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, in today's episode, we're taking a closer look at the Seven Sorrows of Mary along with the concept of being open to life, even if it leaves your arms empty (or emptier than you want them to be). We're talking specifically about infertility but as Catholic Women, practicing natura…
 
Hello!! Sterling is back with the Just One Small Thing Podcast, joining the select few who have been guests TWICE (Sterling, your certificate is in the mail ;-) ). You might know Sterling from her Catholic Minimalism Facebook Group or her podcast Coffee and Pearls. Or maybe you’ve read some of her books? Today, the three of us discuss how to make a…
 
Next in our Sacramental Series, we’re learning about Scapulars. We’ll talk specifically about the Brown Scapular today but there are several different color scapulars each with their own particular devotion. The Scapular is a beautiful tradition of our Church started with the Carmelite Order. The Carmelites, unlike many of the orders founded around…
 
Today, we’re diving into another sacramental of our Faith: the Chapel Veil. Reminder from last week: Sacramentals do not confer the grace of the Holy Spirit in the way that sacraments do, but by the Church's prayer, they prepare us to receive grace and dispose us to cooperate with it. (CC1670) Wearing a veil at mass will not give you special graces…
 
For the next four weeks, we’re diving into Sacramentals. What are they? Why do we have them? How did each particular devotion come to be? To begin, let’s take a look at this line from the Catechism: Sacramentals do not confer the grace of the Holy Spirit in the way that sacraments do, but by the Church's prayer, they prepare us to receive grace and…
 
Hello and welcome back to the second season of The Just One Small Thing Podcast: Everyday Wisdom for Catholic Women! In today’s episode you’ll get to meet my friend and New Co-Host, Katie Wood, while we talk about this season’s motto: Let the Eucharist Lead. To be honest, this might be our motto forever and ever because how can you beat it? Isn’t t…
 
Hey there friends! It's a big day around this small corner of the internet. Today I am sharing the LAST installment of the VIRTUES OF THE ROSARY. I can hardly believe it! I started discussing these virtues last summer, and here we are finishing them up as we approach another summer. So, today is all about the virtue attached to the final Glorious M…
 
Welcome back to another installment of the Virtues of the Rosary on the Just One Small Thing Podcast. I have really loved attaching a virtue to each mystery of the Rosary, and I hope these episodes have been helpful and enriched your own praying of the Rosary. And, we are in the 2nd to the last episode in this series! Can you believe it?!? Today's …
 
Hey there! Welcome back to another episode of the Just One Small Thing Podcast. I am working my way through the final VIRTUES OF THE ROSARY.

Hey there! Let's continue on with our investigation of the virtues of the Rosary! Head hereif you would like beautiful coloring pages with the virtues of the Rosary and right hereif you would like to grab a Rosary Booklet of your very own. Today's podcast is all about hope, but not hope in the sense that we use the word every day. In common usage, …
 
Hey there, friends! Today we are getting back to a topic I love: The Rosary. Over a year ago I put a little rosary booklet with the help of Annie from Paper Monastery. The Rosary Booklet is a collection of ways to pray and reflect on the rosary.Over 3,000 copies of that book have been shipped all over the world (holy cow!), but more importantly, ju…
 
Hey there, friends! This week the Just One Small Thing Podcast is a challenge for you (and for me!). Since we are in the Easter season I think it is the PERFECT time to take stock of life and our faith life. Have we been moving forward? Do we actually, deeply believe the things we processed during Holy Week and on Easter Sunday? And, perhaps as imp…
 
Hey there! The Just One Small Thing Podcast is all new TWO WEEKS IN A ROW! I am so excited and hopeful that we can keep this up! This week I am sharing 10 things that I've learned about prayer over the last two years. Many of the concepts are ones that I have touched on in previous podcasts, but they are all so important! Here is a quick rundown of…
 
Annndddd....the podcast is back! Thank you to all of you that have sent sweet little emails or left encouraging comments! The prompted me to get back on creating this podcast, and once I started recording I realized how much I had missed it! So, I am very happy to announce that the Just One Small Thing Podcast is BACK! The plan (God willing, of cou…
 
I am big on looking back...and then looking forward at the end of the year. I know this is way over done right now, but I find it helpful since I usually am to "stuck in the moment" to really understand what I am experiencing when I experience it. So, today's episode is a little personal as I look at the ways I have changed and grown and struggled …
 
Hey there friends! I am taking a break from all of the wonderful guests (I hope you loved hearing from them as much as I enjoyed talking with them!). So, instead of having a guest, I am taking minute to share personally (yikes!). I am actually an introvert, and would rather talk about other people, but since it has been a year since we lost Max at …
